    Alright guys, now that I finished the board for the most part, I figured I'd start a thread. I still need to make some more cables to get rid of the test of the cheap ones, but I give up for now [emoji36][​IMG]

    This set-up sounds so good guys.......I just love it.

    Also, after playing the Strymons for a few days.......their "better"........period.

    There were aspects about the sound of the Eventides that I liked better, but overall these are a huge jump in sound quality. My tone has never sounded more clear. The Eventides must have been dulling my sound, because even when the Strymons are bypassed my tone is better. I MUCH prefer the UI on the Eventides by far, but I'll get used to it. However, the preset switching is way better on the Strymons.

    I still need to dial everything in but I'm pretty happy right now. This destroys the HD500 I was using.

    Oh, the Joyo Yellow comp is my favorite comp so far.

    If you have any questions let me know. Thank you for the board Jofa!!! View attachment 92104

    My only question is “How did you afford it?” ;) Looks great (i.e., looks like it sounds great)--kudos! -E

    I recently acquired some kingsley pedals (squire Dumble and jouster). Similar setup here overall. Just got the torpedo cab as well.

    Have you used the torpedo cab live yet? If so what's your feedback? I haven't had a chance to dive into it yet although I can foresee myself as nervous using it on that first gig.

    I swear I haven't spent a dollar of my own money on gear in like 3yrs. I just did a lot of buying, selling and trading. I can't afford any of those expensive pedals. It's taken a long time and been a lot of work.

    Also, everything on there is used except the Kingsley Squire.

    Beautiful board! I'm almost certain I used to own that Boiling Point [emoji16]

    I've been using the Kingsley and Torpedo for over a year. It's killer........it destroys the HD500x I was using. I had the Dumble version of the Squire but didn't like it. It was too dark for me, but it may be good for single coils.

    I also had a Jester and Juggler at different points. They're great pedals but they didn't work for me in this set-up. I had such high hopes though [emoji17]

    Gorgeous! What's the red pedal with GT stripes. It's a RAT clone right?

    What kind of music do you play? Do you run direct in every venue?

    Gorgeous. My board is almost done too. I'm waiting for one more pedal to arrive, and it's just an order swapper. Then I won't have any room left, and I love all of my pedals too much to replace any of them. I may upgrade the cables eventually, but that will probably be an incremental thing over a long period of time.

    Just got the CAB + Kingsley Squire D setup and I'm loving it! Already re-recorded some guitar parts on my album and the tone is better and clearer than what I was able to achieve using my amp and good mics. Yet to try it live. I'll do that tomorrow! But I have a question for you, Jeff, what preamp did you end up going with since you said the Dumble style was too dark for you? Did you just get the TB version of the Squire?
