    I would try to not think of a singers board being a whole lot different than a supporting players to be. We all do similar things (for most mainstream styles of music). Singing or not, I will always find use for a phaser or flanger or big delays, etc...

    Wait, is this for people who play guitar and are also the primary singer in the band or for singers who use effects on their vox?

    The signal chain here is set up to keep things simple for me switching wise while singing. There isn't really that much going on.

    The EX-7, tuner, custom trem & phase 90 run into the home made white pedal in the center. That switches between one of two dirt channel loops or both loops off.

    Loop 1 is the DM4, Blues Pro & Maxon EQ.
    Loop 2 is the Shredmaster, SD-1 & DE-7.
    Output of the switcher goes to the DL4 then to the amp.
    The Boss Volume is set up to control gain on the DM4.

    This set up allows me to "preset" lead or rhythm tones on the 2 channels & switch between multiple pedal combos or clean w/ one stomp.

    Good question.


    I thought the answer would be Singers who use effects on their vocals.

    I use a voicelive2 from TC. My chain is Vox -> Voicelive -> PA and guitar -> Voicelive -> HD500 -> PA. I run my guitar through the VL to get chording for harmonies and auto tune effects. Works very well for me. Depending on the gig I will bring a hand built 1x12 fender clone for stage monitoring.

    I have a Boss/Roland VE-20....kind of a board, or not. Just a vocal processor in a twin stomp footprint. Pretty cool to have verb, delay, harmonization all at my feet instead of in a rack. And, though I don't use them, there are some cool vocal fx if singers do voice-over stuff or need special sounds in the studio.

    Sorry, no pic, see Roland for that, ;).

    I mostly leave delay on all the time and mess with the volume knob on my dirt, so it's not as crazy as it looks.
