New pedalboard inspired by Barry Cleveland's Trailer Trash


Guitarman19853

Recommended Posts

Well I didn't set out to copy his, but when Trailer Trash put a bunch of blem red boards on e-bay, I knew I had to buy one. I suspected it would end up looking very similar.

 

Actually we seem to have similar tastes as I also had an AxeFx Ultra. Which I just traded. I'm using my amp again now until I decide to buy the AxeFx 2.

 

The signal chain:

Turbo Tuner

FX Engineering/RAF Mirage Compressor (always on)

Road Rage Looper

1. Arion SPH-1 Phaser

2. Keeley Fuzz Head

3. DIY Mosfet Boost (Similar to ZVEX SHO)

4. Fulltone Full-Drive 2

5. BYOC Overdrive 2 (modded)

6. Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret

7. Volume Pedal -> Strymon TimeLine

8. Arion SAD-3 Analog Delay

 

All wired with LAVA cable.

Niiiiiiiiiice! Very sharp. Nice selection of pedals, too. :cool:

 

With a nod to Eddie Van Halen and his early pedal board (which was pretty light on the pedals- unlike mine, hehhehh!- with an emphasis on "board"), I've just been running some warped plywood and duct-tape with reinforcing staples... ! :D

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

well sounds like a step up from the milk crate! Although, you know I loved that...

 

I've been butchering an Ikea Gorm shelf for a while - the poor man's pedaltrain...

very nice.

 

I was actually toying with the idea of doing what people used to have Pete Cornish do: take the effects out of their housings and put them in a bigger pedalboard box all hardwired and recessed and have true bypass switches on the front and some buffering where needed. Then I realized I'm not David Gilmore and I should just get over it.

Aw, why? The whole point behind a pedal board is convenience, and ease of setup/teardown. If you can add improved sound & more protection for your gadgets, I would think that not having Gilmore's budget would make that even more desirable.

Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.

Love the look of that red board! I like being able to swap out different pedals, over time - sometimes, there are new pedals that I'd rather use, and sometimes, things just wear out. When your old favorite fuzz starts to sound like Roseanne Barr singing the National Anthem, do you really want to have to perform major surgery just to pull the stupid thing out? It also means I;m not committed to dragging some rare piece of gear everywhere I go. Sometimes, it's good to be able to strip down to your most expendable OD, Flanger and Delay.

 

OTOH, I realize that building your own pedalboard is about getting the set-up that you want, not the one I like. If you have the skills, and the patience to build your own Pete Cornish/Bob Bradshaw-style rig, I'd love to see it. Is it time to start yet another "show us your board" thread?

Again, that's a really sharp pedal-board, Guitarman19853- and I like the way you've got the connecting patch-cables all disappearing through those holes in the 'board, and particularly how they all go to the loop-box to be controlled there by those true-bypass footswitches. And I like that the layout and location of the pedals doesn't necessarily conform to the signal-path, and vice-verse. Clean, well executed, functional, and likely superior in sound quality and low-noise. :thu::cool:

Ah, yes, well, every man is allowed one harmless vice - alright, two or three, but still . . .

 

Y'know, in lieu of a large curved, partially or wholly radially-arrayed pedal-board, I may eventually wind up with two or three smaller "regular" rectangular 'boards set next to each other at angles. I like being able to turn a little instead of stretching and leaning or stepping to one side or the other, and it saves space on the stage.
