i wanna see pics of your pedals! if you have some rare boutique pedals, post them up and tell us about them. what you like about them. or if you have a whole pedal board show it off and tell us about it! especially if you made the board yourself.

i guess ill have to go first.

this is not the actual board, as i havent had a chance to take a pic of it yet, but it is a depiction of what ive got on her so far. ill take a pic when i get home and post it up later. hopefully by then there will be many more "centerfolds" to drool over.

ok so what ive got is:
Dimebag Crybaby From Hell Wah ==> Planet Waves Tuner ==> Danelectro French Fries Auto Wah ==> Ibanez DS7 Distortion (borrowing till i get my Boss DS-1) ==> Boss DD-6 Delay ==> Danelectro FAB Chorus ==> Danelectro Tuna Melt Tremolo ==> Danelectro Surf n Turf Compressor ==> Danelectro Fish n Chips EQ.
also on the board is an X2 Wireless system.
all power supplied by 1 spot AC adapter through daisy chain.
home made board
carried in a Maxpedition soft rifle case that carries all other necessities (ie cables, picks, mics, notes, etc.)

planning to pick up my DS-1 tonight
want to switch out my tuner with Korg Pitchblack just because it looks cool
plan to switch out DD-6 with DD-7 plus FS-5U for external tap tempo.

huge fan of boss corp pedals (if it wasnt clear). Also just picked up the rc-20 loop station which is amazing. Love the korg pitchblack, sick tuner and slick looks. All running through a SKB pedal board unit. Sonic max. in there for good measure

It goes Korg Pitch Black Tuner >> Boss PS-3 Phase Shifter >> Boss OC-3 Super Octave [awesome pedal] >> Bos CS-3 Chorus Ensemble (I like it more than the other boss Chorus Offerings) >> BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer >> Boss TR-2 Tremolo >> Boss Noise Suppressor >> Boss DD-6 Digital Delay [want a dd7 but the rc-20 i just got really makes up for it i guess] another MUST have pedal IMO >> Boss RV-5 Digital Reverb [another must have]. All of this goes through an SKB powered pedal board unit, that is itself, a hardcase.

I tried to cover all my bases there, and feel like I did so fairly well. Id like to get a smaller pedal board for JUST a few pedals at a time, since above is my recording pedal board setup, and I dont ever need every pedal for every occasion...well...do i? ;)

Just picked up the RC-20 loop station which is killer, cant wait to get it on my board in its vacant space.

ok so i finally took a pick of my board. my actual board is basically a wood grating that i found around the house. spray painted it black and added some velcro to it. the front feet are a high bounce ball that i cut in half to provide traction on the floor and the raise the front up to give a slope.

signal chain starts at the crybaby from hell, then into a planet waves tuner (which i desperately want to upgrade to a korg pitchblack), then into a BOSS dynamic wah tempo controlled by FS-5U, then into a danelectro FAB chorus (best damn $15 chorus you'll ever find), then into a danelectro tunamelt tremolo (does the job just as good without sucking the tone out like the BOSS tremolo), then into a danelectro fish n chips 7 band EQ (should be called "night n day" instead), then into my BOSS DD-7 delay tap tempo on another FS-5U. the other FS-5U switches control the channel on my amp (clean to amp model), and for the effects (phase / flange).

all the essentials minimal space. all the pedals are further secured by zipties, and powered by a 1SPOT AC adapter and daisy chain. the handles were originally for my kayak, and everything fits nicely into a Maxpedition rifle bag for transport and storage of all the rest of my gear (cables and other stuff).

I don't have pics, but I can tell you what I've used and what I think of them.

Right now, I have:

Electro-Harmonix English Muff'n -- I love this for a tube overdrive sound. I bought it originally to add some nicety to my solid state amp, but I've since sold the amp and now have an all-tube amp. So now I use it as my overdrive/boost channel. It's warm and meaty.

Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Wah -- I love it, but I rarely use it. Honestly, because of this thread and making me think about it, I'll probably go jam with it tonight and try to use it more. I just don't feel the need to wah wah as much lately for some reason.

Dr. Scientist Radical Red Reverberator -- Actually, I don't own this, but I want to. Badly. On that old amp, I used the built-in reverb. My new tube amp doesn't have one, so I'm reverbless right now and it's the only pedal I really feel I need to add. This Dr. Scientist reverb is pricey, but it's the best I've ever heard for reverb. I hope to own it one day, but it places a long way down my list of things to acquire (at least after a conga, a mainland, a puppy, and a camera) just because of the price.

Electro-Harmonix Bass Balls -- I bought this for bass like 8 years ago and it's a crazy awesome box. It doesn't get taken out very much because it's so unique sounding that it doesn't fit in with a ton of songs, but when I do pull it out, I have a BALL playing with it on both bass and guitar. It's a dual envelope filter that has a drive switch as well, so you can really sound like you're playing on the moon. It's like a sick auto-wah that bends every which way and swells-- just crazy cool.

ok so i did a little bit of moving around and added some things and got rid of some things. here's the current setup:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v176/pEsCaDoR/Instruments%20of%20Mass%20Rambunction/DSC_0616-1-1.jpg

the case is actually a musicians gear electric guitar case that i flipped upside down, ripped out the lining, and used the lid as my board. didnt feel like dropping $300 on a case to fit all my pedals so i opted to just gut one of my $50 guitar cases and DIY this mofo.
