    I’ve gotta say, I’m really happy this forum led me to Tavo’s stuff. The Shrunken Brain is ALWAYS in, and the Detroit Casket is my #1 go-to kick-in-the-pants.

    Do you have a separate board for Reverb’s?

    Very cool setup! Looks like you can cover a lot of territory. I like the Brain on my board as well.

  7. Is part of the act selecting the correct pedal? My feet would hit every pedal other than the one i wanted. At best i have two or three pedals, spaced a few inches apart , and i still hit the wrong one on the fly.

    Yes, the EQ comes post-drive section. It’s really only there to brighten up my global tone if I need it depending on room/mix/humbuckers etc. Since my amps are iso’d offstage, I can’t get to them to adjust on the fly........hence that EQ.

    No, my verbs are there.

    The Flint does my light and medium verb duties, and with that shared favorite switch(the little white one next to the Flint.....the left button goes to the Flint, the right button goes to the DIG)I have essentially two channels of reverb preset there.

    Then above it, the Alexander does my heavy verbs and ambient duties. That has four programmable presets as well.


    So in actually, I have 6 different reverbs available at my feet at any given time in an efficient use of space.

    Hahahaha....! Yeah, I’ve got my drill down pretty well at this point. I ought to incorporate a loop switcher in all honesty.......but the crazy part of me says the challenge of the dance is keeping my mind sharp. LOL

    That`s exactly what I thought.
    It makes managing this setup a lot easier.

    I thought of building a nice board for some months just to have maximum versality for an upcoming project and found at an really early stage that I will need a loop-switching device to organize all that.
    To emulate this I already used three bypass-switches and grouped two or three pedals behind them. But even then you usually would have to stomp on two switches to change the sound. Further more I would need at least one more delay if I would use a system like that.
    So the route to go with my board would be a loop-switcher

    Like I said though, I’m a little crazy in that I actually enjoy the intellectual terror of having to choose the right combinations lighting quickly in real time! LOL

    I use the Boss ES5 but instead of a patch per song I basically have standard templates and use it to select presets. I'm thinking of taking to off as I want to add back a volume pedal and it takes up so much space.

    Nice board Tony, and not just the pedals, but it's also sooo neat.

    Hey thanks. Yeah, I really like my life neat and organized in general.......and I’ve turned into a big fan of the Temple Audio boards. Nice and lightweight, yet durable, and a TA board with a big bag of heavy duty zip ties and you are ready to rock. I was actually swinging my pedalboard upside down last night showing some of the other players what a great worry-free system that is.

    I’m smitten with my Detroit Casket. I keep my mystery brain on abby at all times for my base tone, and use the casket to push it as needed. I’ve played with the knobs quite a bit, but I’ve found that it meets my needs perfectly with everything at noon.
    It’s the best drive pedal I’ve ever used.
