    Wow!
    The only time in my life I've ever seen two DOD bi-fet preamps in one thread.
    Great pedal, so universal as a solo booster, acoustic preamp and clean boost. Been on my board for 15 years.

    Nice. So many great pedals. I'm glad to see so many great "cheap" pedals on a single board.

    Everything looked so great. This is tough!!

    Good Job!

    Not all of them were cheap!!! I suppose it depends on how much u earn vs. spend.....
    and what's available where u live.
    If I still lived in England this board would be full of booteek glory!!!!

    Is there a tap tempo button connected to one of your dd5's, jaywalker? That might make or break my vote on this one! :)

    They are DD3s actually one MIJ, one MIT, the second magicstomp handles all multiband delays and U2/satriani/Holdsworth type stuff.

    The DD3s are there for off the cuff stuff and doubling/standard delays when I need the two yamahas for pitch shift/harmonisers and multi band delays.

    That's always been my biggest gripe about the magicstomps is lack of tap tempo, or some kind of tempoe sync. What an amazing pedal other than that! You've got a really nice board- I'm just surprised you don't find a tempo delay a must have.

    Not on this board, It's more for presise rehearsed work.
    The AC runs to another acoustic magicstomp BTW, I can run both the electric signal and acoustic sim simultaneously into one amp by sending the AC signal to my FX return. Monster sound, just like the van halen "can't stop lovin' you' intro.
    There's a great little nobels signal splitter under the noise suppressor to send the signal 3 ways - tuner, electric and AC.
    The second magicstomp has a number of presets that are clones of my amp for emergencies such as tubes blowing.
    The board switches to battery backup automaticaly if the power supply cuts out for any reason, no need to disconect the power leads.

    The A/B box serves for when I run my acoustic through the board (also for the aforementioned amp blowing scenario) - I simply flip it into the PA, the first magicstomp features lots of acoustic/mandolin/banjo/violin presets too so this really helps with multi instrumental gigs.

    This was a tough one... In the end, something 'bout AJ's board just made me vote for it.

    I like all the boards in all the categories, can I vote for them all??????

    It might be cool if the owners explained any hidded/special functions too - something that sets their board apart from the norm, that would be real educational for us all I'm sure.

    I had to go with Homestar on this one, his blend of pedals just came across as the most useable. Although the other boards looked really fun, dual magicstomps and whatnot.
