Pedal Board Organization

Some like 'em and some don't, but I bet everyone has at least a couple — Analog Delay, Digital Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tube Overdrive, Transistor Overdrive, Fuzz, Octave Fuzz, Tremolo, Vibrato, Compressor and the list goes on!

Yeah, it'll do that at first. But you'll never need another switcher again. Period.

Tank you got a killer rig ! :cheers:
seems those switchblade are real nice.

I've been thinking of trying a switcher for some time, but I think it would be overkill for my current needs where I try to stay compact.. the thing is you have to add a rack in addition to your pedalboard when you go to that kind of system (I don't have any rack gear anymore, only head + cab + PB).

Thanks Anje! Also, congrats on selling your Blackflag (saw the post on TGP). Rack systems are definitely remnants of the 80s, and small pedalboards on the floor are the way most guys go unless you're a touring pro (I could post pics of tons of pro rigs for days, all of which use switching systems). But there are certains tones, sounds, etc. I just can't squeeze out of a stomp box (especially delays), so I use the rack system.

Plus, it looks cool as h-ll! 8)

back in the day, before I spent 20+ years on the road driving truck, I had a pretty sweet system for the day.
Sorry that there are no surviving pictures.

pedal sysem went as thus
(1) DOD overdrive/preamp set to a clean unity gain setting, no overdrive, just to act as a buffer for the chain and to keep the guitar from "loading"
(2) origional CryBaby wah pedal (my first fx and still a fav)
(3)big muff Pi fuzz tone
(4)2x EH Electric Mistress filter/Flanger one set on slow and fat, the other on fast
(5&6) 2 EchoPlex tape delays i set to short "slapback" with the output going to the second amp and the other set to a long "echo" delay
(7) a maestro miniphase

the only thing that I didn't have back then that i wanted was called a "flying pan" and that would have gone at the end of the chain with a line to both amps.

Unfortunately, when my first wife took off, most of my gear dis-appeared.
Now days it is just a LesPaul 61 re-issue, the cry baby and a marshall 100 with 4x12s
Soon enough I hope to have the Sound City 200+ back up and running, along with a Speakeasy RB2 Leslie clone, voiced and crossed over for guitar. All i really want or need besides that would be a delay/doubler of some sort with stereo outs.
