  2. I wondered for a moment if it was an alternative spelling for "easy". :D

    Added one more pedal to the board. I was looking at a synth-type pedal and really enjoyed that EQD Bit Commander could do that and more. I had to get a little creative with pedal placement since I really like the size of the Pedaltrain Metro 16 and didn't want to change boards. I really love this board now, first one in a long time that has stayed together and I haven't fiddled with too much. 16141259008435876047005004896205.jpg

    How do you like the mini iso brick?

    I like it a lot. Dead quiet and it comes with its own splitter so you can run 5 pedals off of 4 outlets. I have the Polytune and the Blacky Blower on the splitter and haven't had an issue yet.

    Hi all, quick question-
    I'm assembling a small pedal board, have a power supply, now looking at cables-

    What do you use to connect your pedals? I'm using mostly Boss type pedals, except for one odd Donner pedal.
    Looking for efficiently compact/reliable, of course. ;)

    Are you talking about power cables or patch cables?

    If patch, I use EBS Gold flat cables. Love them!

    Patch cables, sorry.

    For power I'm using a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power X4.

    Amazon’s own flat cables and Audioblast are two other options. They are not as compact as other flats but otherwise both expertly done, crack one open and see the guts. Also much more affordable.

    Patch cables are cheap, get the best and be done with it ☝️

  14. Patch-cables are cheap? :cautious:

    That depends on how big your board is and how big your pedals are. Small board with 5 big pedals, or a small board with 120 pedals, or more.

    Eh, define best. Were cables all free I wouldn’t use most of the popular options and I certainly wouldn’t get anything gold plated. But for a small board it’s probably not a good investment of time to think too hard about this.

    I take it the video host did not say anything bad about Putin or the cables that are used by Pussy Riot...otherwise those water bottles might be hanging around a part of his anatomy.

    what is the blackstone like/how would you describe it?
  19. I declare this to be unplayable.
    But that probably just shows what a rookie I am.

    You’d have to have really long legs! And Lord help you if a cable goes out.
