Update - made some progress on my new rack. It holds a half rack Roland XV-2020 rompler, my beloved JDI Duplex, a Behringer ear bud amp, and a larger mixer than I was using in my mini rig previously (Yamaha MG102C.)

There's also space for my MiniVent in there as well, if I decide I need it. An impending organ switch may make that not necessary.

All power, warts, and lumps are in the bottom compartment which also has power for external use.

The 2 shelves are aluminum and slide out for access. The mixer will be mounted and get a lid as well.

Moe, where did you source the aluminum from for the shelves?

Went to the local sheet metal company with a drawing, and they sheared it up for me. There are some partial side pieces to guard the mixer and support the lid that I haven't shown yet. Total cost was $32

I totally missed this thread the first time around! Very cool rig updates!

Question: How do you transport the custom 1/2 rack?

The little racks I build are designed to throw in my cord case (wheeled with a pull out handle. Then onstage the rack sits on top of the cord case next to me.

This one is admittedly at the large end of a tossable box.

Updating the rig thread to show my organ swap out. I thought I was going to have to remake the trolleys for the new organ since the rubber feet were mounted in different places. But I just flipped them backwards and it fit fine!

New organ, so the pedalboard gets a mod. Vent remote speed switch goes and another FC-7 gets added to do Nord modulation and non-piano volume duty. I'll be using the Mojo internal sim.


Before:



After:



Left to right: Nord mod, Mojo sustain/speed, Nord sustain, Mojo expression.

I haven't updated this thread in awhile.

New - the bench now sports a fold away backrest. I get tired back sitting on that thing for hours during a gig and could use the support!




The back piece has slots on the back and just sets down on the risers. It gets thrown into the bench bag. It will get some foam installed soon.




The risers tuck up under the bench when not in use.

Moe, I'm wondering if you're receiving compensation from Dr. Pepper for the strategic product placements in your pics. jk

Awesome watching what you do to your rig over the years. You have most definitely given us all some great time-saving tips!

Thanks for that!

LOL. I have had a serious DP addiction since I was 18. Back then they came in 16 oz bottles and the taste was magnificent. In the intervening years since bottles were phased out I have endured cans or even worse, liter bottles.

Anyway, I've been trying to kick the habit for several years now. Currently I am DP free for close to 6 months. wink

Come on up to Canada, the DP tastes better up here; like it should. But don't call it DP, people will think you're looking for a girl, and another guy.

Well, I've decided to go for it. KL on the pedalboard, vent on the pedalboard, everything on the pedalboard!

I have a weekend full of gigs and 3 days. That's a lotta wiring, and I haven't even figured out how to do the power bus yet.

The much maligned Key Largo sustain switch will actually be used as my secondary sustain pedal, switching patches on the PX-5S or as a sustain for my Mojo 61, which is almost always dedicated to organ.

Looks cool,

Will you be using the internal reverb of the organ (Mojo) and run it trough the Vent? Or do you prefer to keep the organ sound dry? Just asking because I'm having somewhat similar setup where I feed the organ of Stage2 (via 3rd output) to Vent. I somehow find the bare organ sound too dry and have a reverb pedal after the Vent, but being a quitar pedal, it doesn't quite have enough dynamic range to be placed in series in the signal chain. KL aux loop would solve that issue...

I typically run Mojo pretty dry live. Occasionally I do a spacey or classically influenced thing where it is appropriate, but the Mojo verb works fine for this because I am on chorale. It's really only when spinning that verb sounds funny.

Of course, I could also put a reverb pedal in the effects loop of the KL.

Well, the pedalboard is complete tonight except for some fresh paint. Seems like I have been working on it for weeks.

Oh yeah, that's because I have. Pics to follow.

Presenting the world's strangest pedalboard. I built a box underneath for power handling. It contains internal AC for wall warts and external AC for keys and other things and has an IEC plug for input.

Since I use my lid to snap back on and raise everything, the power box hides inside when on stage. Closed for travel it looks a little weird.

Setup is super fast with the vent prewired to its remote and the mixer. The pedals terminate in a little patch panel. 2 key cables to mix, 3 pedal outputs to keys, mix to monitor, mix to house.

I'm using the Key Largo sustain switch for S2, a secondary sustain for Mojo OR when I use the Casio I switch patch layers with it.

KL effects loop has output patched right back into the input, and provides a stereo boost for soloing. I'll have to gig with it to see if I need to insert an active boost pedal instead.
