I agree keep the red green and blue and ditch the rest.  😄

Actually I was thinking about building a complete seafoam colored board,,,😆

Paint the board in yellow. So it looks nicer when the pedals are on.

I bought a new board and power supply over 6 months ago.  The board, the power supply, all my pedals, a roll of velcro, and connector cords are still in a pile on the floor.

I remember jonesing for a Frost Bite Flanger while waiting for the second round of reissue ADA flangers to come out in 2009.  I waited... but then I fell in love with the Foxrox Paradox.  I still have the ADA on the shelf, though!

Actually, I barely used that pedal so far, but I like toy around with (beside that cool name, that is). But after eliminating the Keeley chorus I wonder if the Frostbite may cloud compensate that... And the Enhance knob is killer, of course.

Sure. It's easy to make a flanger sound like a chorus, but not the other way around.

It was yours, wasn‘t it? Glad to have it. Even if its not „on duty“ right now...

I'm doing that this week. I've really liked my Fractal AX8 but I only use one amp and cab model + two distortion stages, a tremolo, and a delay. It's like using a spaceship to to go the grocery store. So I got a DSM+Humboldt Simplifier and am hooking my pedals up. It'll be more suited for my minimal needs, and still go straight into the board.

Indeed it was...a good pedal. What brand is that Vixen germanium booster? Is it a basic treble booster?

Maybe it’s time for a return to rack effects. Or reasonably priced modeling effects boxes with programmable buttons. I now have a small pedal board. Any larger and I won’t be able to reach the mic or avoid tripping while trying to reach the switch buttons.

This is up there at #1 for reasons "why I never made my guitar pedalboard". So many choices about how you can organize things.

I'm still amazed I managed to build a bass pedalboard.

I resisted for a long time because I’m stubborn and cheap. But playing some songs where a tremolo and wah are needed. Then got a chorus and found a place to put my Red Moon Tchula.  Next version I will add cable to the effects loop. Really like to hear   reverb trails through chorus.

That‘s a Sitek, a polish company. I bought it kind of blind via ebay, but to my taste it is a bit too fuzzy. I‘m thinking about letting it go anyway, so if anyone here is interested let me know.

In case anyone wants to dig deeper in strange, unknown and funny pedals you may want to check out www.guitarpedalx.com Here you find reviews of some pretty obscure brands, well worth a look...
