    I got 3 new pedals in trade end of last week, so I rearranged my board to add them. I’ve officially outgrown my PT-2.

    I put together 3 boards and finally programmed my Morningstar to control my HX Stomp.

    On Friday, I went through all of my overdrive and distortion pedals from my shelf and tried to figure out if I wanted to rearrange my board, and ended up with the same two OD/distortion pedals that have been on my board for months now. Otherwise, I tend to shift things slightly and then I end back up at pretty much the same spot every few days. I think I'm extremely close to completely finishing my board if its already not done right now.

    Once, added a Ampeg classic bass preamp.

    I dont have a board: does tripping over pedals whilst walking around count as rearranging?

    I added a noise gate when this all started. Haven't touched it since.

    Kinda funny. I was rearranging practically every week for months leading up to all this. Got everything nailed down just as lockdown started.

    Still need a better mini tuner. But I'm not gigging, so using one of my better, larger tuners isn't a hardship

    The only thing I’ve done is swap out my Phase 95 and Digitech Polara a couple times and mostly left the Polara on. I’ve been pretty focused on actually practicing. I had switched to a Fender Tre-Verb instead of the Polara.

    I haven’t really got on well with the Phaser, so I’ve been experimenting with having 2 different reverbs available instead or combining them.

    Guilty !!!

    About three times now...and I've added and subtracted 4 boxes during the past 3 weeks...finally got the tone I want and control with both my PRS guitars and strat.
    Biggest moves...pulled my Klone off (Smoky Amps...great sounding pedal, just didn't like the lower mids with my McCarty), replaced it with a new RC Booster. Moorer Yellow Comp gone (hated it...very sterile) and added the SP Comp. I had the AC Booster...and now I realize that the RC was MADE to drive the AC....best tones I've gotten in years. My Mesa Express blues channel is set up for a slight driven tone (think Dickey Betts) and these Xotic boxes kick that well, and stay in control (dialing back the bass is a HUGE improvement in my tone). Call me an Xotic fanboy fan.

    Once. A friend was fixing the pedals he built for me and had the time to get them done and send them back.

    From here out, the only changes should really come when I switch out dirt pedals. That said, it's all over should I decide to put the TZF back on the board, which was the original purpose of the PTc2.

    I haven't....yet. But, I've been on pedalboardplanner.com just about every day for length of my quarantine.

    A few times! Been working on my new board for a while, and have been trying some new stuff, revisiting stuff I had laying around, and generally just trying to zero in on what I wanted.

    I finally have it sorted out, and spent the last couple of days doing the final layout and cabling. Just waiting on a couple of particular cables, a Saturnworks footswitch, and an MXR Phase 95

    The most I ever do is swap out pedals depending on my mood.

    I have been practicing nearly every day, and just purchased a music theory course to work on at my leisure in the evenings.

    So because of all of that ‘good’ stuff, I purchased several new pedals and am moving from a Metro 16 to a Novo 24. :) What a lovely distraction from my four walls.

    I have also been re-watching all the TPS vids on pedal board builds. I am going to really take my time this week and ‘do it right’.

    Last night while drinking beer in my garage and shooting the **** with a buddy on the phone who was also drinking I put together a board with some of my leftover pedals that haven't seen action in years. I got to wank on it a bit goday and it might be a contender for some gigs (if I ever have any again).

    3 including about an hour ago. I’ve got a few separate boards though.
