    I was really bored, so I made this:

    I decided to save each pedal as a seperate picture for your guys' enjoyment to save and make your own! Mind you this was all done in MS Paint...

    phaser. *

    *I took an MXR Phase 90 and edited to say PHASER and put it under a Noise Gate that looks like my Rockteck Phaser. :hyper:
  2. Wow, sweet! I'd ask you to make me one but it would be a V-4 and SVT 4x10 to Sansamp BDDI... not very exciting, I know ;).

    Your wish is my command!

    What is the V-4 called though? I might not be able to find it.

    EDIT: Oh! It's a head...

    Just out of curiousity, how did you make that. I read it says M$ Paint Edit. Fancy making a tutorial of basics techniques of making these images for me by any chance?

    I'll try to explain this.

    1. Search for the gear you want.
    2. Print screen and paste in paint.
    3. Crop your picture. Try to save half of the cord when cropping.
    4. Paste in another paint window and connect the pedals.

    I hope that helps.

    *** edit---Petary beat me by about 20 seconds, so I wasn't really parroting him...***

    He copied/pasted each particular effect or amp and went into MS Paint to manipulate it. Arranged his pedals in whatever order and aligned them to meet up with the cables. Or altered the cables to fit his scheme.

    The pedals and amps are already designed at www.pedalgeek.com so it's all a matter of robbing from that guy.

    Ah, so i am taking it he didn't draw it by hand :(

    I was well up for making a kind of musical background on Photoshop for a local band website.

    H no! I didn't draw that!

    And I suck at photoshop. Paint for life! Also, you need to printscreen, not copy and paste.

    Abark000 nice rig! I've only got one effects pedal, and it's a bit old but it does me fine, Zoom UF-01 Ultrafuzz.

    But now I'm saving up for stuff again, I'm thinking about either a tuner and a cable, or a new preamp, or a bartolini MMC pickup, or an effect... I'm rather partial to wahs....
    And you've got quite a few! Could you recommend me anything? I've listened to samples. I used to own an FX-25B actually, it was pretty good but I never got the hang of it. The main candidates for wahs I'm looking at:

    Digitech BSW
    Morley dual bass wah
    Digitech FX25 (Not B)
    EHX Mini-Q

    The kind of tones I'm looking at are kind of like... Well, anything that could pull of something like the solo in Coffee Shop by the Chilis.

    Any help would be appreciated thanks!
