Hi everyone, here's my current pedal setup
From the left, polytuner > MXR compressor > RC booster> MXR envelop filter > Line selector
Send
Chain A --> MXR octave > Big Muff Pi > Tech 21 bass fuzz > Maxon Graphic EQ > EHX bass ball> Return
Chain B --> MXR blowtorch > Flanger > Delay > Return
Return
--> Chorus > Sonic stomp > Tone Hammer > DI to the audio interface
> Ampeg amp > audio interface
All pedals are powered with 2x pedal train 1250
It seems very complicate but very simple to setup. :wink:

HI Greghr, i normally turn on the compressor, sonic stomp and tone hammer then i switch between chain A and B depends on what songs i'm playing with.
My music genres are various but i usually play RUSH songs!

Here's my lovely bunch of squawk boxes.

Just need to add a Line 6 G30 or G50 and maybe a fuzz box.

New tube pre/compressor day!!! Well two days ago and it's not really a pedal but I wasn't sure where to put this and it doesn't warrant it's own thread.

I was in the market for a compressor pedal to take care of the odd rogue note and I saw that these were $70 off on sale so I went and tried it out. I'm pretty happy I did because not only does the compressor do what I want and I can visually see what's going on but the tube pre warms and fattens out the sound a bit too, which is nice.
I'm looking forward to Wednesday when I can try it out with the band :D

You've come a long way baby...

Been a few years since I posted my last version of the main rig. Has changed a bit over the years.

That's quite a pedalboard! The two wireless units are presumably so you can run two basses and the red pedal switches between them? What is the silver/white pedal in the front row with the red demon picture on it?

Yeah just upgraded to the Pedaltrain Pro a couple of weeks ago as I ran out of room. Haha
Yes, I have two wireless units for two basses with the pink A/B switch (made by Peper's Pedals in Dunedin) to toggle between them. At the other end is the VT Bass Deluxe which I use as a two channel Preamp, with bank A set up fro one bass and B set for the other. At the moment A is EQ'd for a passive Precision and B is EQ'd for an active bass (my Stingray or Jaguar).

The White pedal you are asking about at the bottom is the most recent addition. It's a delay pedal made my Bush FX in Auckland. Ben is an amazingly talented kid (he's still at school I believe). It's a fantastic delay unit (a clone of something expensive) with controls over repeats, level and just about every parameter you could want from a delay. He can do pretty much any pedal. He uses a few of his own graphics on the enclosures but for a scant $5 more he can put whatever you like on there. Being a fan of Futurama, I thought Robot Devil would be cool and sent him the pic and without instruction or request he even added a second LED so both eyes light up when the unit is engaged. haha.
