What I arrived to wasn't radically different to my board for the past 4 years at all. :-[ :-[

Basically after all the running around, the only thing that changed was the fuzz...everything is the same as the past 4 years (Echoczar, Angelbaby, Klon, Model H, Pitchblack) :D
Isn't that crazy how that happens? I did the same thing earlier this year. I always seem to come back to my old standards that just plain work with my other gear.
It really is crazy...sometimes I feel I'm going round in circles! :D

I just use the Line 6 HX effects multi-effects pedal. It sounds good and is very easy to use. Is anyone else using it?
The HX effects is a superb bit of kit. I could happily just use it for everything, but I do love my Tym Guitars pedals so... ;D

Some of you collect Zvex. I seem to be collecting Montreal Assembly.

I finally got around to putting this one together today:
Image
Image
I put this one together on my Pedaltrain Metro 20 for the Marshall-y amps, laid out for the time/mod loop to sit in an effects loop w/ an eye on the JCM800 and Maz Jr. specifically.

It goes :
guitar > PolyTune 2 Noir> One Control 2Loop switcher [R loop (Devi Ever Vintage Fuzz Master DiY > Fairfield Circuitry Modele B) > L loop (Walrus Audio Emissary)] > JHS Little Black Buffer > amp in > amp loop send > One Control Junction Box I/O A > Zvex Loop Gate [Walrus Audio Julia > Chase Bliss Tonal Recall > JRAD Boing > Zvex Sonar] > One Control Junction Box I/O B > amp loop return

Really super happy w/ it so far playing my Cyclone through the JCM800 and a '74 Champ I'm test driving for the night .

The Emissary works amazingly well w/ pretty much any amp I've plugged it into and is the cleanest dirt pedal I've ever encountered. Probably the only dirt pedal I would need w/ any of the British amps I've got that ironically has almost no clipping of it's own.

It's been several months since I've had the Vintage Fuzz Master on a board and I missed it... It's a one trick pony that's pretty much useless for any kind of detailed chords but is one of the coolest nasty AF, snarling, spitting, buzzsaw fuzzes I've ever played for monophonic/duophonic destructive chaos. It's working great into either channel of the JCM800 or the Champ.

The time mod loop seems to work an order of magnitude better in the loop of the 4210 as well so I think it will be worth the effort to hook up the extra cables most of the time.

Had the last few parts of the puzzle come in for the refresh of my red/yellow board (which I guess is now the red/gold one) and got it wired up last night:
Image
Routing is
guitar > PolyTune 2 > Xenogama Tail Loop 2 [ loop 1 ( Candiru Fuzz > 1962x > Atomic Brain ) > loop 2 ( EchoRec > Talisman) > loop 3 (Ekko 616 MkII > Flint > Prestige)] > Little Black Buffer > amp

I didn't finish wiring it all up until around midnight so only got about an hour in w/ it through the Class 5, but so far I'm really liking everything on here. The Flint is seeming super promising and the early favorites for me are the '63 tube trem and the '60s spring. Initial assessment is I've got better pedals for surfy spring drip, but it does a pretty admirable job in that role IMO and the more subtle settings sound beautiful. The tube trem seems like one of the closest to the real thing I've tried in pedal form and all of the models have a great crisp, clean, dynamic quality while still sounding nice and warm and organic to my ears. I think it will wind up being a perpetual pedalboard mainstay for me as long as I'm mostly playing through amps that don't have good trem and spring onboard.

Those are some nice boards dude! I LOVE the aesthetics of the Spaceman stuff.

My favorite drive sound is also an EQD The Dunes. Ever try pushing it with a treble booster? Pure heaven!

Thx! I have, and it is great. One of my fave sounds is running either the Dunes or my Basic Audio 808 through my Fairfield Circuitry Barbershop (set clean and full blast) or the Spaceman Atlas (set to full blast). Then I use my guitar’s vol knob to go from clean to mean.

Can you break down your vocal effects board?

Also a link to any of your vocal work? I am really interested to see how you use that

I use a Shure Beta 58 which goes into the Radial JS3 splitter. From the JS3 a dry signal is sent to FOH, the other signal from the JS3 is sent into the Eventide Mixing Link. From there it goes into the Tonal Recall and then into the BigSky which then returns it into the Eventide Mixing Link. Then from the Eventide it goes to FOH. That way I have a dry signal and a wet signal that can be blended as needed by the soundperson.

I don’t have any live recordings of that setup yet. It’s nothing over the top, just a little bit of delay and reverb as icing on the cake.

That is cool as hell. I read "vocal fx board", but it didn't register.
