Oh ok. Here's a trick - tape a piece of plastic poster hanger to your mic stand. They hold picks really well and are a lot easier to get to.

I don't gig, though I'll keep that in mind if I ever do. It's mostly just to keep picks from littering my room.

I apologise for the shitty image quality. I only have my phone to take pictures withat the moment.

The plain boxes are and BYOC Tubescreamer and a germanium Rangemaster clone that I built.

Looking to add a Polytune mini in the space on the top right corner and a Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde. And I still got some space to maybe add either a chorus,compressor, or reverb. The Joyo is awesome cause for those times I'm too lazy to lug or set up my amp, I could just plug in straight to the PA and have it sound and react similarly to my amp.

yeah i heard those joyos are tech 21 clones. apparently they're designed to go straight into the soundboard. i tried them through an amp and i wasn't really a fan. that was before i heard about the soundboard thing though.

Guitar -> Dunlop 95q ->Ibanez PL-5 Powerlead -> Electro-Harmonix Germanium Big Muff -> Amp -> DOD G7 Processor (patch/bypass switch shown) -> '73 Deluxe Electric Mistress -> T-Rex Tap Tone analog delay -> Echobase/Phase 100 (also built by Badgerific)

Current board iteration, only thing not shown is my Joyo Power Supply (currently trying to get the velco to stick to it, damn rubber bottoms). It'll see another revision once the TS-9/DS-1 pedal Badgerific is building for me arrives

Yea through an amp it sounds pretty bad (demos on youtube seem to love doing this though ) but it's pretty good just straight into the PA or recording interface. The only thing that sucks is when you turn the voice and drive high, some hissing occurs, but I don't really use it like that so it doesn't really bother me.

Never posted a pic here before....let's hope it works!!!
It's been in a transition period lately. Been moving stuff around on it. Nothing fancy by any means, but it gets the job done.
Guitar->TO-1->DS-1->Sonic Stomp->CS-3->RP-80->Crybaby GCB-95->Big Muff->Hyper Phase->amp.
My sonic stomp had a defect and and hisses and totally cuts the signal when I switch it off. I have to send it in for repairs otherwise it'd be through my amps effect loop instead of in front because it's always on.
I use my amps distortion with the delta lab as a boost for solos, but the cs-3 has sort of made me not have to. The hyper phase kinda has a volume drop, but the cs-3 fixes that too...I love that thing!!
The RP-80 is basically my tuner now, but it has a delay setting I like and that I can control with the expression pedal. It throws a slight EQ curve on my amp as well as having a noise gate, so it is a pretty important part of my overall rig.
I don't have any room on my DC-10, so I have the RP-80 connected to a digitech adapter. My bands been gigging a lot, so everything is pretty beat up from being in the back of a car not to mention that a lot of that stuff has a lot of hours logged!!

Like I said, nothing fancy


yes that is an old pokemon card...Magmar to be exact

I gotta say, a lot of you guys seem to pay no attention at all to how easy it will be to operate them. Some of those boards would be a nightmare to use on stage. There's more to it than just making the pedals fit, you have to be able to get at everything easily with your foot.

I noticed that when I tried to run 2 rows of pedals on my board. It was too difficult to hit the rear ones quickly without messing up the knobs on the front ones. I made the rear level a bit higher and now everything works like a charm.

I've seen quite a few Premier-Guitar Rig Rundowns where people use tape on their knobs to keep them in place from any bumps. However, then you can't tweak or change settings without removing and replacing the tape.

MIDI's kind of the ultimate solution, but costs a bit more for that extra equipment and cables. It is a really good route for the serious gigger with a large amount of pedals. You can still tweak, too.

Just because it looks difficult to you, doesn't mean it is for the person using it.
Mine is pretty rough onstage sometimes because my band goes from really clean, to death metal to ambient real fast and it's hard sometimes, but it's not that big a deal. the amp switch is what I miss every time anyway the third channel is an off switch cause I don't like to run high gain, and I forget to turn it off sometimes.

I'm sure the metalzone would kick their ass at distortion, but they aren't distortion pedals...

so


the metalzone has no peers, regardless of the nature and function of other pedals.

I got nothin'. 98% of the time I play at home or on stage, I use NO pedals. Straight into the amp & let my hands do the rest. Pedals cover up sloppy technique & mud up your tone in general. I look at some of these boards & wonder WTF is happening to the original guitar signal. Nice necro bump, but DANG. Your playing gets buried in layer upon layer of pedals, & eventually no one knows WTF you're doing. I WANT people to hear what i'm playing. Sorry, but pedals don't do it for me. Good playing does it.
There, I said it. Sorry to break up the tea party.

they do it for me.

i have no problem playing with or without pedals. when i use pedals i can get this crazy stereo delay, ring mod UFO landings that i can't get from an amp alone and i like that sound so... pedals.

common riffhog, not even a wah pedal? a wah never hurt no one.

Pedals can bury your playing, if maybe you had a crap ton on at any given time, but I generally don't have more than 2 or 3 on at any one time. Even then, I've got everything running through true bypass loopers, so if I want, nothing is in the signal chain save the reverb and tuner.

Sloppy players and big pedalsboards don't go hand in hand. I know plenty of shit players that use just a couple pedals, or none at all. Works both ways. There, I said it.
