Don't know about all time dream but I put this together last night:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Signal chain goes:
Guitar
BOSS TU-3 tuner
JD JC Wah

Amp

The amp is Marshall JVM410H so the footswitch for that controls all my clean/OD/solo sounds and reverb.

In the FX loop is:
Retro Sonic Chorus
MXR delay
BOSS DD-7 delay


My dream is that this sounds great at band practice tomorrow :thumbsup:

Looks nice. I've managed to get pedals 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 (Just ordered this one, I'm waiting for its arrival) from my list. I'll post some photos from the current setup later.

I still need a power supply for them... a MXR MC 402 and a T-Rex Fuel Tank Chamelleon should do the trick.

Well, thanks for sharing! Best of luck, to you and your band! :thumbsup:

You mean the 403? The 402 is a boost pedal I'm sure??.... Unless you can power others off it like some Boss pedals?

The 403 looks like a beastly power supply! I would have got it but it was too big/overkill for this board. I considered the T-Rex Jr but went with the PP2+ because of isolated outputs. I think the chameleon has isolated outputs too so good choice there.

Whooops! You're right, that huge power suply is the 403, not the 402. Sorry for that, typing is not my forte, especially with this small (notebook) keyboard.

I've got an SKB powered pedalboard. The gigbag it comes with is useless, but the pedalboad itself is solid and well worth the money. It's not very big but super easy to lug around. Built like a tank too - it was stacked above equipment in my van, fell out when I opened the back hatch, cracked right down on the pavement and there's not even a scratch on the thing. My pedals all remained attached and with their correct settings!

I don't use a huge variety of effects, but this is how my chain goes:

Guitar > Boss Chromatic Tuner > Dunlop Slash Wah > Digitech Whammy > Boss Delay (DD-3) > Boss Super Chorus > Amp

Even though none of the pedals are true bypass (as far as I know) they run like a dream. They hardly add any extra hum (if anything at all) to my tone. I haven't looked into it but I'm wondering if the built-in power adapter on the pedalboard has some type of noise suppression within it. I'm no expert on pedals or electronics by any means, but that's my guess.

Those few pedals do me nicely, especially as Slash is my main influence. Perhaps I could say my dream is to have everything on Slash's pedalboard, but this setup gets me pretty damn close (in terms of tones, not amount of pedals).

Thanks for sharing! To be honest, I'd rather have a good buffer on my chain than a lot of TB's , especially on a big pedalboard (I know that my DP has a lot of true bypasses, but there's also some good buffers and the twin boost to solve any signal problems).
Here's a video showing Slash's rig:


Hope it helps...

Hmmmm... crap! I forgot to put the whammy(#16) on my list! :xmassrudolph: There's no way to play some Pantera's songs without it!.

Mine changes a lot, but right now I'm quite happy with what I have.

In front of amp:

Dunlop Zakk Wylde wah
MXR Dynacomp
MI Audio Blues Pro (just switched this out for my old Boss SD-1 which is a bit less bassy)
MI Audio Crunchbox
Rocktron Banshee (used to use a Heil Talk Box but it's just a PITA to set up)

In effects loop:

Boss GE-7 (just removed this today so will see how that goes)
Line 6 M13

I play in a covers band so flexibility is important. I play through a JCM900 which people often whinge about, but I think it sounds great and get a lot of compliments on my sound. Looking to get a JVM410H soon though. Tried one out and fell in love!

To the dude with the JVM - can you give me the dimensions for the foot switch? Sorry man, I've looked everywhere online and can not find a single fucking site with the size of the footswitch. I just want to know if it will fit on my Pedaltrain Jr.

That's the amp I've got. It's great. Very flexible what with channels/modes and what I think is really great - 2 separate master volumes. In fact you can set it to have 3 separate volumes I believe using the effects loop.

As soon as I get the chance I'll measure it and post it here.

Thanks for the video Chewbacca! I had seen that a while back but nice to stay updated with it.

Never mentioned it in my last post but I'm using a Marshall TSL100 with the matching 1960 cabinet. I've heard the DSL sounds better (never played one myself) but there wasn't one in stock at the time, whereas they had a used TSL100 in perfect shape so I ended up saving money anyways. I downloaded the manual for the AFD100 and used those recommended settings and certainly can't complain about the tone it puts out. Perfect for all kinds of hard rock and classic rock.

My only complaint is the footswitch - it works fine and is very responsive, but the cable is permanently attached to the footswitch which makes it awkward to carry around and prevented me from keeping it conveniently on the pedalboard.

chorus, delay, wah.

“To the ones who are negative and want to see either myself or the new band fall on their faces, personally I can’t pass up an opportunity to upset so many of them in one quick swoop. I get misty-eyed just thinking about it."

No problem, dude! Actually, This video is a little out-dated. I believe this link will be more usefull:

I have tried the X3 and X3 pro and they worked great for my kind of stuff which is kinda similar to this (not me playing):

I can't guarantee that you'll like it though (I don't know what you're looking for). You should try it and see for yourself.
Having a huge pedalboard sure is a pain on the ass: controlling it, carrying it around, setting up, powering it... It's certainly not practical.

This set I use mostly can barely squeeze into the board/bag.

I can get a lot of sounds here but I think next time I'll just get a Line 6 Pod instead. That will be my dream pedal board.

Thanks for sharing! I guess you should get the Floor Pood, instead of the X3, then. I haven't tried it since it's not available at the store I usually go to test stuff, but I'm sure it is a good unit. If you're looking for a good multieffects, you should also try the Digitech RP500: It's got lot of cool settings, like the sandman, and very unique effects such as ya-ya and the synth talk.
IMO multi-effects are a good choice for it's dynamics: you can quickly change between a distorted/delay/octave sound and a clean/chorus/flanger one with a single stomp. On the other hand compact/single effect pedals are easier to set, you can change your sound by simply turning a knob, instead of downloading/programming a new preset.
