  1. Well, I've decided I'm bored and need to do some fabricating. :p

    Well here's mine. I've thought allot about what I want to add to my rig.
    I'm going to use Line6 DL4* and MM4 for my basic modulation effects. (I don't mind if they are digital.)
    Loooper Paralyzer.
    Crowther Audio P&C
    EHX Poly Octave
    EHX Bass Micro Synth *
    EHX Q-tron+* (Both EHX effects in the the Paralyzer so I can switch between Arp, Moog, Casio and envelope filter tones instantly, without having to go through a ton of mixers.)
    Loooper four loop switcher, with wet and dry out puts.
    SansAmp BDDI.
    PedalBoard.com Juicebox power suply and pedalboard w/shelf (for the Line6 effects) all in an ultralight case.

    Whirlwind Cables.

    or maybe a top of the line eventide effects unit.

    I would like to use the switchblade thingy so I can patch anything anywhere:

    FX I use now:
    EHX
    1 bassballs (Russian)
    2 qtron+
    3 small stone (Russian)
    4 Big Muff Pi

    Dunlop/MXR
    1 105Q
    2 Bass DI+
    3 Bass autoQ

    Alesis
    1 Air FX

    Boss
    1 Loop Station
    2 PH3
    3 Limiter/Enhancer (on the practice amp now)

    Tech21
    1 Sans Amp (this is only one that's on 100% of the time.
    2 Bass Compactor

    Behringer
    1 Composer (I think it sounds good, so sue me)

    DOD
    1 bass effects multi (doesn't travel with me)

    the effects I want are many and varied. Right now I want everything in the Frostwave line, notably the Space Beam Theremin and the Blue Ringer. I need a power brick or something for these pedals, and I plan on getting the NYC standard 36 pedalboard.

    wireless, sum sort of light overdrive and a octaver effect. Im not a fan of effects, but these are the only 3 id ever get, if u count wireless as an effect.
     
  5. FX not in the present arsenal denoted with GAS:

    Trace Elliott Dual Compressor
    []
    EBS Octabass (GAS--have MXR for now)
    []
    volume pedal (have 2: old JAX mono, Rogue stereo; I'd use only one in this setup of course)
    []
    Boss PW-10 wah (amazing! Every funkateer needs one)
    []
    EHX Bassballs (GAS Q-tron in the future)
    []
    Boss 3-space board/case:
    NS-2 (with TU-8 in it's unmuted loop)
    SYB-3 (set for auto-wah or ray gun depending on gig; I "shoot" the audience with the latter. Hmmm-maybe a laser pointer on my headstock...)
    BF-3 (GAS--using CEB-3 now)
    []
    Boss EQ-20 and LS-20 (GAS both-look like fun)

    I have been researching powered pedalboards as of late, since the above represents my "universal" set-up. For my church gig it's MXR octaver-JAX volume with a Korg tuner in between. For my rock trio it's everything but the "church" pedalboard, which I built using 11x14" plywood and plumber's tape (cut into small pieces and using the FX pedals' rear plate to secure them to pedal; wood screws to board).
    As the Trace requires 18v power, I usually plug my Warwick into it and it outputs to the amp; everything else is in the amp's FX loop. It would be nice to shed the Boss board and combine all of the 9v stuff on one of those nice SKB units, but the "funk" board is the PW-10 and Bassballs on another 11x14 scrap of wood and does me just fine. Both 11x14's have power strips mounted on them. The wall warts hide the pedals from the audience. Sorry for the verbosity. I guess I gotta get a digital camera & just show 'em.

    My DREAM FX setup would be:
    Sansamp> EBS Octave> BMS > Deep Impact > Lovetone Meatball> Lovetone ? flange > MXR Phase 90 > Digitech whammy > Line 6 DL4 > Midi controlled Oberhiem echoplex (with a moogerfooger dubbing it up in the chain somewhere)

    But that will most likely never happen......

    This is pretty much what I have now which I like:

    Retrospec Squeeze Box
    Electro-Harmonix Octave Multiplexor
    Dredge-tone Angler
    Frantone Lo-tone
    MoogerFooger Low-pass Filter
    Akai Headrush
    Fulltone Choral-Flange

    To that I might add:

    Mutron Bi-Phase
    SWR IOD

    Definitely would want to use:

    Custom Audio Electronics RS-10 and a couple of their audio switching tools. This is trully pro stuff.
