    Dang, the drive/gain on those two pedals are so high. Are you stacking them?

    My board is currently at 5, which is the largest it has been in over 6 years.
    Polytune3 > Centura > Pumpkin PI > Rubberneck > Bomes Ape Delay

    The Bomes is probably going to send the Rubberneck packing, and the Pumpkin PI is only there because it was a gift from the lady of the house.

    This looks nice. Daaaang, I didn't know Barefoot offered the "tallboy" version of their buttons. Gonna have to order a couple of those.

    Just sold a huge Pedaltrain Pro and most of the pedals.

    New minimalist re-build will likely be a Pedaltrain Jr:

    - Turbo Tuner
    - Centura
    - Kingsley Page
    - Kingsley Jester
    - Strymon Flint
    - Strymon Timeline

    But, I could probably do without the tuner, and I probably don’t need the Page and the Centura.

    I don't really stack the Animal and the Fulldrive, they have plenty of gain on their own. The Animal sounds amazing with my Strat, and I like the Fulldrive with my Tele/LP. Settings are currently all over the place from me just experimenting during my practice time.

    I built this to have something different for local stuff since my full Helix units are always with our TA or in storage between tours or fly dates.

    Running direct out of the HX Stomp with TRS to XLR cables, monitoring with IEMs.

    Sugar Drive is a great klone I got for around $80 and use as a lead boost. Most of my drive comes from the HX amps, because I use footswitch 1 to toggle the amp drive up and down.

    Wet effects after the amp and cab. Powered with a 1spot Pro CS6 underneath.

    I can pretty much do anything I need with this rig without having to compromise on sound or flexibility. Bass and I might start using Stomps as our full rigs, at least for fly dates, to cut down on the number of Pelicans we have to check.

    Guess mine is pretty minimal:

    TU-3 -> J. Rockett Archer -> OCD 1.7 -> DD-500.

    But now I want to downsize even further to something like Fulldrive -> Dispatch Master.

    Any time I add more stuff to my board, I don't use it.

    I like it a lot. Never had an OCD before so I can’t tell you how it compares but it’s really responsive to dynamics and the volume knob. Has a really good feel to it.

    What enclosure/amp/pedalboard is that tweed combo thing? I've not seen that before. Very cool that it folds into itself for transport...right?

    Those guitars look a bit like the room got hot and the bodies and colors ran/melted.

    :)

    Now that’s a board I could get down with. page + Jester = righteousness. I can surmise you won’t miss your big board one bit!
