Mike and Joker,
How do you guys like that Time Machine?
Is it really just a boost, or is it a drive?
My suitcase pedalboard. Chiba and I gave it a shakedown a few nights ago...
...and my hearing is back now, I think.
VL Pedal Power 2 under the shelf, along with Barber Burn Unit ser #6. The A/B switches between the tuner and the signal chain. The Echo Park does forward delays, while the DD-6 is set for reverse. The Bud Wah Plus has a variable clean boost (uses the pedal to change boost level) as well as a fine wah sound. The Pedalworx gents are well represented on this one, with the McBoost (Bob McBroom's clean boost), the Dirty Angel (a high gain grinder, again from Bob Mc), and the Tour Pro (a little version of the gainy side of George Blekas' Texas Two Step). A lot in a small area, I throw it in a medium-size, Goodwill-acquired, sanitized hard-shell Samsonite, and off we go.
its a Menatone Pleasure Trem. IMHO, the best there is out there. very organic and musical.
and the TMB's modern side is a straight up clean boost, with a dash of highs to cut. the "treble" side does it a bit of grit and gain, but its terrific for those times i use my non master amps, and need a cutting lead sound. the intensity knob turns up the upper mids and high end w/ a dose of grit for an extra gain shot. not much, but enough to give your tone even more singing'ness.
i've since replaced the TMB w/ a BJF Sea Blue EQ, but when i use my Route 66 or GDS 18 watter, out comes the TMB.
Ugh...my brain just broke looking at that pedalboard. That is fanstastic! Any details on that?
Mostly just a boost. The vintage side will give you a touch of drive, but not that much. But you can't beat it for pushing a Marshall over the edge and right down the cliff face...
I was one of the first people to buy one (mine is #008), and it's still on my board how many years later.... I like it just fine, thankyouverymuch.
"its a Menatone Pleasure Trem. IMHO, the best there is out there. very organic and musical."
Yep, the Menatone Pleasure Trem 5000 is IT!
I'll post a picture of my small board later.
Awe come on! Most of these aren't small boards. Let's see boards with no more than four pedals.
TS/ Landgraff clone (OZFX)
Clone Chorus (OXFX)
Seriously, even this board has one too many switches for me.
Ah, a man after my own heart - less is more, and sometimes less is a LOT more!
This board varies dependent on my mood, but for the most part it looks like these two...

Guyatone Mico Tuner
Maxon Phase Tone
Line 6 Delay
The old Potato tone.
I'm playing a gig on my lunch hour tomorrow, I need to get in and out... and back to work fast. This "board", this guitar and my TopHat Club Royale. The essintials, a compressor (dual purpose, boost and compression), The Eternity for OD/Distortion and a Delay
