    VEry nice! Uber tidy!
    Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

    Nice board! How are you attaching your pedals to the case, is it Velcro or are you screwing the pedals to the chassis. Can you link to the case? Also how would I fit a Wah on to there? (Building my first board )
    Consider this ... a $200 cheapo guitar through a $5,000 MESA amp sounds pretty darn good and a competent guitarist could certainly play a gig with this rig.

    However, a $5,000 Gibson guitar through a $200 practice amp sounds like ... well ... a $200 practice amp.

    I would love to get my hands on a fuzzrite clone. The ones I find are outrageously priced for how simple the circuit is.

    Of course the challenge for cloning old fuzzes is not the circuit design, its determining what transistor gain range and biasing makes them sound "good".
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    Nice to see a fuzzrite clone that doesn't cost as much as a decent guitar. I'll have to watch for those when I'm in buying nice again.

    Hey, it's wired Rich!

    I dig the blue. Are those Lava Cables? Self soldered or purchased?
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    Those are Belden 9463, designed for Allen-Bradley's industrial automation networks, RIO and DH+. Out in industry, they just call it "blue hose". I used it as a joke, because it's been ubiquitous throughout my engineering career. Anybody in the automation business from about 1980 onward knows blue hose on sight. If you ever had a couple of pieces of equipment and you didn't know if they were going to talk, as long as they both had a blue hose connection, you knew things would be alright. Also, I get scrap lengths for free, and what's scrap in a panel shop or factory can make a LOT of 5" patch cables.

    It's getting to be obsolete these days, finally being phased out and replaced with Ethernet. It's really overqualified as guitar cable; twisted pair in triple shielding, but it's basically indestructible and I smile at the inside joke whenever I look down.

    That's what I was thinking that was just wasn't quite sure either. Nice setup by the way.

    Back in the 70s all my patch chords were made from blue Belden cable.

    Not to mention the fact that I'm apparently the only person who still uses a pedalboard.

    I love that story.

    Here's mine. I run a Wah and a flanger or Microvibe out front. (Need a bigger board! )
    Oh no.....

    Personally, I mainly use a modeling processor since they are somewhat cheaper (well, the one I have was anyway). I have a Fender Mustang Floor and a Digitech RP350. I started this thread to see what other guitarists alike had on a board to where I could start to build my own board in the future.

    I use a Marshall Code 100 amp, which has a lot of the effects I use, but I still have a Vox wah, Whammy, EHX Microsynth, and a distortion pedal in front of the amp. Each of those is mostly for solos. I have yet to mount them on a board. Lol.

    But I watch rig rundowns and some people have huge pedal boards.

    Even the carpet got replaced!
    I am so close to retirement that I could play in a band full time. All I have to do is improve my playing, learn some songs, and find some other musicians more talented than me who will do exactly as they're told. .
