Time for a update given it's been a while... no radical changes.

Gone: MXR envelope filter and Boss tremolo.
Replaced with: TC electronic Hall of Fame 2 and Old Blood Noise Endeavors Dark Star.

Done some moving around of the pedals on the small board, everything is now more or less in chain order on this board.
The Dark Star is a reverb with long trails and placed before modulation, it does some very nice things to the chorus, phaser, flanger, tremolo and vibe, somehow a more defined and detailed modulated sound.
At the end of the chain the two reverbs behind each other can give a very nice deep roominess.

Slight rework to reflect addition of looper (I'm hopeless with it) and replacing a previous second isolated PSU with a GigRig Isolator (thanks @mildmanofrock!) - now only one kettle lead needed innit.

Tuner > C4 > Looper > Soul Food > Chorus > Delay > HPF > Comp (always on).

MIDI is MC6 > Hub > C4. The Hub is just a dumb box for me - I store everything on the MC6. Awesome bit of kit, overkill for one pedal but synth/MIDI has been my lockdown project! I also use an expression pedal plugged into the MC6.

The GigRig is ace - powers four pedals (the least important ones!) from one of the 500ma outlets on the Truetone. 

Mixture of Harley Benton and Lava Tightrope solderless patch leads - the HB plugs are really good for stacking side by side without taking up too much space.

Went back to my cheapo Donner board and ditched the wireless unit, since it was just too high off the floor to hit the switches comfortably. Turns out the narrow bar on the board makes a rather good carry handle...might wrap it in grip tape?

Have also realised that every pedal on here was bought second hand - only the Fuel Tank and the board were new purchases.

Been after a Sea Machine for ages, it’s not made it to the board just yet as I’ve got a few more bits to acquire but looking forward to the annual strip down and rebuild ritual that’s brewing

Annual?!?! We’re all at it waaaay more than once a year! 😀

Lol I’ve been pretty good tbh, I didn’t think it was possible to be happy with a finished board or even if finished should be a word associated with pedal boards but I’ve been pretty happy with my set up for a good while now so....... slightly worried lol 

Photo of current board cause why not 😛

Had a bit of think about best place for HPF when introducing new low freqs via octave-down and filter, and decided to compromise by putting it mid-board immediately before my little Zoom multifx but after all the additional low-f stuff. I'll have to 'fess to having an ulterior motive in that I've got a couple of pedals offboard that I was really keen to find some space for, so I took the opportunity to sling the Thumpinator below board as an "always-on" pedal and have now slotted in a Pigtronix Octava in its place.

Here is the latest incarnation of my board

very cool indeed. I love the actual board itself (wooden case with lifty-up bit) and noticed another post in this thread looks as if it uses a similar one. Would you mind sharing what it is?? I'm sure it is explained somewhere but I have managed to miss it.

Thanks :)

Thank you mate! It’s by a company called Schmidt Array. The model I use is the SA450. They’re expensive but I haven’t come across anything else with the features/quality on offer!

Cheers :) It’s a Tourtech TTPB-4. I was in two minds between the Pedaltrain Classic Jr and the Warwick Rockboard 3.1 but this was cheaper than both and the reviews suggested it was just as good. I have to say I am hard pressed to tell the difference in quality between this and my (soon to be for sale 😅) Pedaltrain Metro16

Hey all, I’ve had a Pedaltrain Nano Max for while but no managed to decide what to put on it. I’ve finally come to this:

… I guess we’ll see how long it stays like that ha ha!!
