Thought it'll be cool to make a thread with photos of everyone's pedalboard.

Anyway, here's mine...

Good idea Ollie.

Currently the only pedals I ever use (quite rarely in fact) are my Blkstr ch. change switch and a Morley A/B/Y switch (when I need 2 guits plugged & ready for a quick swap)........I really MISS having a reverb amp, and i'm asking if there is a pedal that REALLY simulates good "old fashioned" spring reverb.
Any suggestions will be appreciated, and i'll check them all out @ my next visit to GC.

Yup, and a HT-5 stack. Unfortunately the HT40 footswitch won't work (for channel switching) with both amps.

I get all drive from the amp, which is why there are no drive pedals on the board.

I need a bigger actual board for my pedals... I've got them at all sorts of angles and WAY TOO close to each other... nothing worse than aiming for your EQ for a big solo boost and hitting your (muting) tuner instead....

Disregard my previous post please, as I have discovered that several companies still make tube driven "real spring tank" reverb units (similar to an amp head).
Some are large companies like Fender, but i'm going to contact a small company called "BearPaw" that custom builds reverb units to the purchasers needs and specs.
A custom made chassis is only $225 USD without the cover...$275 for a tolex (pine)covered unit.
They generally run 1 tube to fire the springs, another for "recovery" and a large tube for output.

Oh well........still only 2 "pedals" Image

Originally had everything through the effects loop, and wondered why the wah sounded like crap. Apparently a wah through an effects loop is a big no-no, which I can confirm. I now have only the 2 Hardwire pedals through the loop, where they sound much better. All others sound better through the front.

Hey guys i hope i am allowed to talk about pedals rather then complete boards.
So i am about to make a switch from multi efx processors to dedicated pedals.
This is what i am thining about:
1-OD and distortion (MXR GT-OD/MXR Full bore metal)
2- Delay (MXR carbon copy)
3-Chorous (Boss CE-5)
4-Reverb (.....?)

so i play mainly metallica/megadeth/guns n roses/ blues

can you please suggest additional pedals i might need or different/better pedals than listed above.

thanks
