Doesn't surprise me one bit.
SFT is an interesting pedal; it cuts the low lows and is so dependent of which kind of bass goes through it.
E.g. sounds lovely with my P bass, kinda farty with my Pedulla Rapture (Jazz)

hmmm. just came back from church with a massive pa. only ran the tone hammer. sounded GOOD.

cuts the lows? hmmm... interesting how do u set the eq? the rapture is active isnt it? my jazz sounds just as good with the sft. G&L is a lil bit too hot i think.

Curious as well! Thinking of rehousing my one spot or powerall so it'll be small as and feel more heavy duty :)

Jaycar do some tiny regulated 9V supplies, was gonna get one and rehouse it for in-line but would rather just buy one. I know HFA or ETE could make me one but a one off custom supply will probably cost heaps.

:D
Some free wood lying around, some Selly's Liquid Nails (to join the wood together), a quick paint job over two days.
I'm pretty happy. I may only have three, but even three is irritating to setup every time. And I hope for more pedals anyway!

Ok, i recently made myself a pedal board to accomodate my humble setup. It cost me next to nothing to make (i convinced my woodwork teacher to turn a blind eye while i raided the wood store room for enough plywood and pine to build it :twisted: )
It took me all of two hours to build and paint. Very sturdy and has a good angle on it. I made it a multi layer board and i use the gap in the middle to thread cables etc through to keep it all tidy. I then bought some velcro and added my pedals.
With the money i saved from making the pedalboard as opposed to buying one, i bought an EHX Dr. Q envelope filter pedal, which i added to the setup.
Here it is:

Note: The way i've got it setup in the pic isnt my standard setup. Ususally its the Envelope Filter Pedal, DIY Fuzz Pedal, ME-20B, DIY Distortion pedal. Also on the pedal board i have my amp footswitch and two footswitches i made for my ME-20B which go through the memory bank and turn the tuner or bass enhance on and off.

The Doctor Q is actually a guitar pedal, but I wanted an envelope filter for playing slap and it sounds great through my amps effects loop and was only $70 off trademe so meh

Looks great man.
I wish I had have used a thinner velcro for my board. I got industrial stuff and it wants to rip the glue off if I change things around :lol:

I picked up the Flanger today,so I tore everything out and redone the arrangement, and threw the Looper in there as well.As you see I do like the Boss range. :)
Looks like room for more yet,Bass Synth maybe ?
A few years back I would have stuck an ashtray in there too. :lol:

That's great.
I love when I have quiet times on the work front so I can concentrate of the things that really matter, like pottering around :)
