I am the projectionist.
My board has pretty stayed as it is in the picture for quite a while but I've started trying a few different things, the Guvnor was replaced with a Mini Spark Boost and then I replaced that with a Durple. I've started using my Wylde wah again but off the board so I can take the Wahter off which would give me space to try the phaser before the amp (I'm not keen on it in the loop) and I want to use the tremolo pedal I bought recently instead of the Vibratrem but it's bigger.
I'd also like to use my DD7 instead of the Flashback but that also needs space for the extra tap tempo switch (which is also problematic in way I'll get to later). I'd like to have the Durple and the Mini Spark on there as well, and there's a distortion pedal I fancy, and I might finally get a fuzz to play with (maybe) and of course there already a bunch of other pedals on the shelf already I can use.
This is about this point is where I had a Jaws moment and realised I need a bigger board. I think the Pedaltrain Classic Junior has been outgrown, historically I've not been a pedal person but I really need to stop buying so many guitars! Pedals are cheaper and I'm having fun trying stuff out so I'm thinking about something like this:
It's pretty much twice the size of my present one so it should be future proof...for a while at least!
The two £18 power supplies I have been using have been ok but the Digitech drop is noisy as hell when powered from it so I'm probably going to get one of these:
It looks like a decent unit, versatile and not too expensive. It'll be nice to get rid of that noise.
I've been wondering if it was possible to find a way to change the channel on my amp and kick in an eq pedal at the same time. The shared eq means the clean channel could sound better (eq is set for dirty) and an eq pedal would go a long way towards that goal. After going around in circles for a while trying to figure it out I came across this switcher:
I hadn't really considered buying a looper but after checking out what this thing can do I'm more than tempted to add it to the mix. It would also solve the problem I've been having with the DD7, when the external tap tempo switch is used you can hear a clicking sound in time with your tempo. With the looper I could put the DD7 in it's own loop and leave the DD7 itself in tap tempo mode instead of having to use the external tap tempo.
It would also clean up the signal a bit in general and make switching in different sounds much easier. I've begun to thing about what would go in which loops, I think it could work out quite well.
Have any of you used this gear? I know I've asked about the power supply before but have you tried the looper? It's the same as the Joyo FXL8 as far as I know.
