Hey I have a couple questions-
Firstly, I built my own pedalboard, and its kind of on the large side. I'll just say what it is to give you an idea of how big it is.
Wah-tuner-Sparkle Drive-TS9- Big Muff- Dejavibe- Vox Delaylab. oh and I have a 2 button footswitch. All daisy chain powered(which will change...eventually).

Now, the thing is... I can't find some sort of bag to put it all in, for moving it to practice and stuff when I can't use the car. Its about 1 foot X 2 1/2 feet. Any ideas on how to move it?

Second- to possibly make it smaller, I need patch cables that have a very small footprint space-wise. I am talking SMALL. And obviously don't suck and all that. I have looked into Solder-less but they are more on the expensive side. Any ideas?

Or, should I just drop the dough and get a damn pedalboard?

You know, if you want a decent fit you'll probably just need to go custom. That doesn't have to be massively expensive or anything. Start out with a bag that fits LxW and then have it cut down to fit height.

But you could also buy a case for a Pedaltrain 2/3...

it is me again, today someone posted two of his pedal on sale on facebook, the vox satchurator (he's been using it for 3 years but in excellent condition) and the trex tonebug choris + Flanger(this one is practically new and he has it from june), both of them for 180$ ( the satchurator goes for new in my country for 120$ and we dont even have t-rex). ill be meeting him in 2 days to test them and seal the deal but i want to check with you guys first:
can i get mettalica tone with the satch or it is strictly a satriani tone pedal? and is it ok to buy it if it is used for 3 years, or will the quality detoriarate?
how about this t-rex pedal? any experiences with it?
and if you were me, would you go for jekyll and hyde v2 or the satchurator?
i have a vox ac4t and a washburn wi65pro
thanks for the help

I didn't think the Satchurator was really designed for metal from what I know of it. I would say that the Jekyll and Hyde would be the better of the two. One side is a distortion and the other is a Tube Screamer circuit which you could use to tighten the distortion circuit. A lot of people really like the JHv2 and from what I've seen and heard of it seems to do okay for metal.

Is there anyway though you can get your hands on other pedals as there are better again if you can go online and have them shipped. What is your current budget?

This.

Satchurator is meant for hard rock.


Maybe try a Suhr Riot

shipping is just out of the question, it is a real hassle in here, you usually end up paying 150% of the original price if not more, the reason I named those 2 pedals is that they are available used in my country so it will work well for me price wise how about getting both? one dedicated for hard rock and the other for the heavier side perhaps? and in that case I don't need to buy another overdrive right? I mean I can use the JHv2 overdrive instead of buying a bad monkey or something right?
#128
The OD side on the JHv2 is based on the Route 808 which is based on a TS808 so it would be a great low gain pedal/boost to your amp or other pedals.

Recommendations for a warm, natural, dirty, American sounding overdrive?
Budget: £200-400

yeah i mean you can get american tube amps which'll do that tone under budget. vht special 6 (or ultra) would be another one.

granted if you want to run it into another amp, then get a pedal. but if you just want that tone... get the amp, kind of thing.

Here is my pedal board related question. I am planning on running a very basic setup. A Boss TU-3 Chromatic Tuner, an MXR Custom Comp (Compressor) and an ISP Decimator (noise supressor). My question is, considering I am running this little of an amount of pedals do I need to buy one of those expensive power supply things? Or can I just directly plug in my guitar, daisy chain the effects in between and then plug it straight into my effects loop with little to no problems?

if you buy them new then you should have the wall wart power supplies that come with the pedals, as long as you have enough power outlets. you can also get a one spot to power all 3 pedals at once.

Wall wart power supplies?

Edit: Oh okay, never mind. I know what you are talking about now. And I need those even if I am running the pedals on 9volt batteries? Or is it an either/or type thing?

you can do either/or but for the tu-3 at least it will chew though batteries pretty fast so i'd recommend using power supplies

Yes, I am interested in pedals only. Sorry if that was not clear.

Depending on the Fender type you want to model, of course.

Or a Rockbox Boiling Point, just because you can afford it. It's a lot more versatile, but it sounds like you know what you want.

Both Wampler pedals sound great when used for a light break up of clean tones. But it seems the more gain you turn on, the more it sounds solid state-ish. Never liked Wampler pedals because of that.

Really? The one I played has a lot more gain and tweakability compared to any Tube Screamer. Is each one different or something?

Like most ODs I guess... Sounds delicious anyway. It might've just been the price tag talking.

I'm looking at getting a DeVille. It's great for blues and cleans, some classic rock too. But the dealbreaker for me is getting a medium gain tone out of it, would an 808 reissue work? Read that that's what SRV used; his higher gain tone and some Pearl Jam is what I'm looking to get out of it. Possibly some Van Halen, but that's optional. Was looking at the PlimSoul too. Budget would be around $200.

i almost posted this in the pedalboard thread, apparently it's good that I didn't.

I'm getting a Hot Rod Deluxe today, and it sounds awesome with a DigiTech Bad Monkey. The low end on mine is monsterous, and can get enough gain for Van Halen and Blizzard-era Ozzy. Also makes for a great booster. An 808 reissue would work, but it's a little lacking in the low end IMO.

As for now, I'm gettin my HRD

There are some on YouTube, I think. Not as great quality as in real life, though.

SRV didn't use a DeVille. It was largely the Vibroverbs, TR's, Bassman's and then a little later in his career Dumble's. He really liked amps with 15 inch speakers or 4*10's.

EDIT: Sorry just realized you were actually talking about the fact that SRV used tube screamers. I have the flu so everything is a little foggy. He did use tube screamers, two of them in fact stacked. One was a TS808 and another was either a TS9 or TS10, however I am fairly certain the TS9 and TS10 were modded to the specs of the TS808.
