How do you like the Koji comp ? And is that an ibanez flanger in yellow ?
I had the Wampler Ego before the Koji. See a few posts back on page 12. I'm thinking of going back to the Ego. Both are great, but I like the Ego just a little bit more. More tweakable, less obtrusive.
Ibanez FL9 flanger indeed!
I have the fl9 also ! And a keeley gc2 comp that I like but am having a it of trouble dialing in. May also go for the wampler.
My issue with the Koji is the lack of a sustain/release control like on the Wampler Ego. It's kinda fixed setting on the Koji.
Except for the Nocturnes and the pedal Reuss RSH-3 (the one with the heart on it) this is constantly changing.
I have no clue what to do with any of this stuff but it sure looks cool.
alright another strymon fan! I love what they make, and rock several. Is that grey channel a take on the grey box 250/preamp like my Fez pedal?
I haven't heard a Fez in person (though they sound really cool in the videos), but yes, it's a take on the Grey Channel. The trick of it is that it's really versatile. It's 2 'channels'. One let's you toggle between LED clipping/no clipping or FET clipping. The other is silicon/ no clipping or germanium. I think that the trade off is character. It sounds really good but maybe lacks a little personality. That may of course just be a matter of taste (or pilot error).
My current set up. Still not sold in the tc electronic hypergravity. I also have a tc electronic sub n up that is not on the board. Can't decide if I like octave. Would love to swap the dd 20 for an alter ego I think.
Ha, it makes me laugh too. Besides these I've got a reverb tank in my tube amp.
For long I considered one of the smallest Pedaltrain boards with hard case, but went to this Gator Pedal Tote with softcase instead. There were two reasons, first the Pedaltrain's dandy aluminum case looked too neat'n'sissy for my taste (sorry, I am what I am ) and second this one was over 50euros cheaper.
I had the gator before I switched to the board shown above. It is made by Donner actually and was $80 us. I didn't like not being able to hide wires on the gator and it is also heavy as heck.
It is quite heavy, that's true.
Last update. Both Dyno Brain and DM-3 will be replaced with a Nocturne Mystery Brain, as soon as I'll receive it. Few pedals, lots of options and lots of fun.
Yeah it is. It's like two of them and each channel can switch between a Fet, Germanium and silicon diodes. (I think that's what can be switched... I can't recall)
I build multi-effects pedals as a sideline to my playing. This is a gut shot of my M7. From the input it has a Tuner/Mute switch, Compressor, Two stages of OD, Tremolo, Delay with Tap Tempo, Reverb and a Master Boost/Cut. This chain works very well and has a way better noise floor that an equivalent single pedal array. It may not suit everyone but it a nice sturdy and compact unit.
Thought I should show you how the M7 looks from the top!
Just ordered an EHX Lester G with an expression pedal. It comes tomorrow. What I'm hoping will work is to put the power supply attached to the side on the top of the board and move the wah and expression pedal off the board, so I can put the Lester G itself on the board. I actually don't like having the wah on the board anyway and I already have to remove the power supply when I put the board in its bag anyway, so the cables don't break the power supply jack. So this should work out. But I spent like 2 hours of pedal board Tetris getting it to its current configuration, lol.
Here's my latest invention:
I was under pressure to take up less space on stage, so I thought about putting the pedals back by the amp, and controlling them remotely. So I built a hillbilly approach to a rack system, which I'm either going to call the PedalBox, or the Rackabilly.
(this was shot early on in the process of cabling it up, it's meant to show the tuner and wireless receiver mounted in the lid for easy visibility and better wireless reception).
And here's the foot controller:
Almost forgot the enormous blog post that attempts to document this project, and offers more pictures: http://frankgiffen.com/welcome/
The frankenmonster from this morning...
G10 wireless -> SGC Hippy Joel OD -> EH Crayon OD -> AC-Tone -> HD500X for delays/reverbs/volume pedal -> Straight out to board
this should win a prize, daaaayum Frank!
Very cool for sure .....would love to see it in action .
