Subscribed once again. 2-3 months more waiting for me until my black boxes arrive. Until then lets have some more clips please peeps.

I'd really love to see some quality AC Wah clips if anyone can oblige? :)

Are most of you going with the older enclosure with the battery, or the new smaller enclosure that uses just ac power?

Older enclosure.
I simply prefer them
aesthetically and ergonomically
even though they take more space.
It's all personal taste and what you like/ need.

I like the solid look,
chicken head knobs (I know you can put these on battery frees),
and maybe it's because it's my first conscious awareness
of what a Cornish looked like when I first became aware of the pedals.

While I see the battery free as cluttered
and the knobs as crowding each other,
some define and prefer that look as compact.
They might even think the black and white is elegant, more slick etc.

All in the eye and stomp of the beholder.
The round knobs for me have an association with
a compacted Fender amp.
While I'd be curious to see how these poll,
it wouldn't change my preference nor would wanting more board space.
I'd live with the paradoxical preference!

I started with the big boxes and ended up ordering all the small ones. I honestly love them both. Big box wise, there is something to be said about being able to grab one with a battery and head out the door as opposed to lugging the whole board.

Admittedly, my board is a bit cluttered right now. The NB3 is just sitting on top, it's the last pedal in my chain. As some of you may know, I build (on a VERY small and amateur scale) pedal boards from time to time. Mine is classic example of the "shoe makers kids don't have shoes (I'm still using the first one I ever built)." Anyhow, I'm pretty much one pedal away (maybe two...) from finishing my Cornish collection and I wanted to build a well thought out, easy to transport, aesthetically pleasing board once I had them all in my possession.

AND... here's to Cornish III! Wonderfully positive and enjoyable thread to follow. Well done.

here is my TB83 going into my 1972 Marshall 20 watt PA head
Sounds like Mick Ronson.
Nice set up! I have a '73 Lead and Bass, right before Marshall went to PCB, and it sounds excellent with my Duplex TB-83 extra. I run that straight in with a wah and it kills.

Awesome board, congrats! Where did you get the smaller chicken head knobs for the battery free pedals?

Here is my setup right now. I like the battery free pedals alot but really did not set out to get those, it just came about. I have no problem with fender type knobs but i will say that i like to be able to notch the gain down fast on the G2 and that would be hard with the smaller box. I am going to have to get another SS3 now that i have the ST2. The ST2 has changed my world. Running it with the P2 will cut through any mix as i have had mixed feelings about that one but no more. I have to say that you do really have to run some of his Pedals through a clean high headroom amp or you are really missing the magic. I run mine through a Tonemaster with matching 4X12's and it is just amazing. The G2 is great through this amp but try it with an AC15 and it is night and day.

Pete even grades his bubble wrap. Ever noticed how precisely he cuts it? The great man does not suffer inferior quality in anything.

This is really so true. I just took delivery of two new Cornish pedals, and I remember thinking to myself, while opening the boxes, how perfectly cut, configured and wrapped both pedals were. All the little "details"....like the soft foam strips on the back of the pedals....and the labeling....everything is exactly the same on each pedal...and perfectly placed.

I have 6 of them now.....and they all have arrived in the same manner...right down to the finest detail. I will say it's nice to plug into them and have them sound as great as they look!

I guess I have a mixed response as to my preferences for the Cornish boxes and knobs. I prefer the look of the big boxes and also like to have the option of using batteries (even though I usually do not do so), but I do prefer the "Fender style" knobs with numbers, as it would make remembering key settings easier.

You saying you don't like the G2 with the AC15?
