xx Old School Pedalboard
« Thread started on: Dec 6th, 2010, 5:19pm »

After years using Digitech multi-effect units, I have decided to go back to a traditional "Boss" based pedalboard for my Astroverb. Here's what I was thinking:

CE-3 chorus
BF-2 flanger
DD-3 delay
SD-1 super overdrive
TU-2 tuner
Dunlop Crybaby

What do you think?

Are you super sold on Boss effects or is it for compactness? Or maybe not to shell out a ton of cash for boutique and non-Boss pedals?

i think it would be a shame to put a digital delay in there before it hits your amp. but i'm just an analogue freak with a digital phobia lol hence why i'm still searching for a delay to go thru my HR50 effects loop.

otherwise yeah, sounds great, would get the TU3 now as its a lot more accurate, or a peterson strobe or korg pitchblack.

and look at alternate pedals for similar prices, there's lotsa great stuff out there to be had thats handmade. boutique doesn't always mean stupidly expensive, sometimes it just means very small run's or "looks plain but sounds great".

a friend of mine is pro gigging touring guitarist (as many people on here will be or will know people who are) and he uses a fender hotrod, boss pedals and a mex tele and sounds better than i will ever hope to be.

Bit of nostlagia, I used to have boss pedals (Japan versions). Also, a bit retentive when it comes to symmetry in my gear. I was going to use the boss powered pedal board as well. Cost is definitely a consideration, you can generally get great deals on ebay with these pedals.

Pedals are a bit hard to decide on...can't really drag my amp into the store are start asking to open up boxes.

Finally got the board together...already changed out a Boss DD-3 digital delay for a MXR Carbon Copy...much better pedal IMO.

Since the subject of this thread is Pedalboards, I thought I would give a shout out to Pedalhackers ToneLab who recently modded my Boss SD-1, GE-7 and CE-3. He does great work at a reasonable price. The results are phenomenal, reduced noise, higher output, lush modulation, he can do it all.

Try the Ronni Le Tekro "cocked wah" thing with the BOSS BF-2 Flanger.

Manual knob full up and all other knobs at zero.

I always loved that Schenker/Le Tekro sound.
