76 Proteus 1 year ago Oh man, how did I miss this? I guess I wasn't around. OK, I'll play. But you do realize it's all pretty absurd and we're silly about this stuff, right?Here's the Good Ship Titanic at the moment, surrounded by some tugs. Two of the overdrive/dirt spots are generally in flux (though the Wampler Clarksdale has stuck for almost two years, and while the Tri-Muff is "permanent" I'm looking for a more satisfying Muff, just for the retrograde prog moments when I try to get my Fripp or Howe on). The Ego is a recent swap-in in the upper compressor position, and I'm enjoying it immensely - but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Keeley or Diamond show up there again.The SpinDoctor on the floor to the right would be on the board if it was big enough. I find I like mixing the gains and stacking the tones from both it and the SD TwinTube (I guess, from pedalboard longevity, my all-time favorite gainbox). But it won't fit. The main board ends up in stereo going to matching Classic 30s (one tweed, one black, because - well, obviously).The Comp Pro and Tim in front aren't part of the board - they're paired into another amp for testing purposes. Wiring is a mess at the moment; I've been using a OneSpot for most of the low-draw pedals, another OneSpot just for the Boss looper (otherwise waaay too noisy), a separate Styrmon supply for each of the big Strymons, and the Seymour and the SpinDoctor each take their own. This has to end. Probably going Zuma. Maybe even a switching system to get all the pedals I'm not using out of the chain. (At any given time I'm not using many more than I use.)This is, of course, a self-indulgent home entertainment system, not a practical gigging board (though with enough room for setup and time to tweak a little to the room, and if doing my material, it's functional).If an amp has reverb, I really only need a tuner, compressor, the Atomic Brain, something for dirt, and maybe a delay. (A 301 would replace two of those.) But let's say to really cover bases I take the Flint, so I get my favorite modulation. What dirt? Probably the Seymour (though it's biggish), the Tim, or a Bad Monkey.
