    My Ubangi Stomp came in and I got this fairly basic board put together last night for it to live on:
    [​IMG]
    As pictured I've got the Brain > Ubangi but after trying the alternative, the signal path goes:
    guitar > PolyTune Noir > Ubangi Stomp > Atomic Brain > Ekko 616 MkII > Sonar > Little Black Buffer > amp(s)

    So far this seems like a really great combination of pedals w/ a very surprising range of sounds on tap from 4 fairly straight forward pedals (well, the Sonar and 616 actually have a lot of options to them, but aren't exactly massive, multi-algorithmic affairs). Seems to work great w/ the AST Pro, Maz Jr. and Class 5 so far.

    I realize that this is an old post, but I’m wondering how you are enjoying the Meteore? I have one en route but, do have concern with respect to the pre delay. How are you finding the pre delay at low gain settings or when you have it at more traditional spring amp settings?
    I am hoping that it will be able to work as a standard reverb when not trying to get out there with it.
    Thanks!

    Just got done making a couple changes/upgrades to mine:

    pedalcase.jpg

    (EHX 360 Looper -> Joyo Ultimate Drive -> Digitech Luxe -> EQD Space Spiral -> EQD Transmisser -> Joyo Tremolo)

    I like where it's at, next thing will probably be a cool reverb but between a new guitar and two new pedals, I've been a little spendy on music stuff lately (even if they were all great deals), so that will have to wait a bit. The "board" itself is an old briefcase I got for a few bucks at Goodwill, which is awesome at being both the size I want and really convenient to stow away, although I have no idea what to do about the increasingly messy-looking wires.

    @audept Why do you need 6 pedalboards ?

    I think we have a serious GAS situation here :D

    They are split up into modular small boards, 1 power supply each with 8-9 outputs.
    #1 = Drive board 1: Tuner, Nocturne Fuzz-Ray/Nailhead tremelo/Ubangi Stomp/Mystery Brain. Keeley vintage echo chamber.
    #2 = FX loop #1 mainly Strymon with Keeley chorus and reverb.
    #3 = Drive board 2: lots of compression, overdrive, octave doubler, harmonizer, chorus.
    #4 = FX loop #2 TC vintage digital delay. Keeley tape echo sims/vintage delays/doublers Digitech Polara reverb.
    #5 = Nocturne pedals (somewhere to keep them all).
    #6 = TECH 21 sansamps: Liverpool (VOX) Blonde (Fender) California (Mesa Boogie) British (Marshall) VT Bass (Ampeg bass amp).
    The VOX & Fender sansamps are the Deluxe versions with FX loops and balanced outputs.

    PB#1-5 have TC buffers in and out. Set up so I can use just the board that has the things I want, or multiple daisy chain boards where I can use individual units on separate boards without any insertion loss

    I was going to post pics but all but 3 of the boards are in a state of flux, and #3 is looking nervous........

    PB#6 will be getting one of the new Strymon Ojai R30. I only need 5 outputs for this board but I future-proofed it by getting a power supply that has 2 switchable 9/12/18V outputs. I can also link it via a 24 V cable to one of the Zuma power supplies. I'm thinking of changing all the power supplies to Zuma and operating a 24 Volt distribution system. Only need to acquire another 2 Zumas and I'm there!
