    For those who like the XTS rigs I highly suggest you follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and definitely Instagram. XTS is also known as Xact Tone Solutions or Xact Tone.

    They not only post their rigs and pedals but feature customer boards that have their pedals on them, mine has been featured a couple of times which is way cool.

    We are on 10-1. Foods not bad there. The band usually eats. Be sure to say hi if you go! (This means I have to practice don't I.....:laugh2:)

    I really can't get over how many of the (Nashville) session guys use Equalizers. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

    Hey gg,

    Are they reasonable? I like most, I like a clean looking board and am considering sending them my board to pretty-it-up. Would they do something like that, or do you have to get a board from them?


    Thanks,

    Careful. It's a slippery slope. You'll go from a 1 spot to 3 separate power supplies on a 4' board like I did. Well worth the money, but "doing it the right way" is seldom cheap or easy.

    you'll want to add a proper looper like the boss ES8 so you're not tap dancing all night. Oh yes, it wont fit on that board so you'll need a bigger board, too. I dont remember, can a pedal power II power another pedal power II? If not, you'll need the voodoo labs AC power brick to get it all down to one powercon. You're like 75% there already, though. Closer than I was.

    Yeah, I'd like to get one of those. I do need one.

    The only thing that's missing from the board in that picture is an MXR (Dunlop) Phase 90 (Script) that I just got recently. I used to own an original one when they first came out in the '70s and when I stopped playing after I got married in the early '80s, I gave that, along with my other pedals, cables etc. to my nephews and sold my Marshall 100W Super Lead. The only thing(s) I kept were my two Les Pauls.

    I haven't tried it, but I think the PP II can power another one?


    Thanks again Joey and :cheers2:

    I think the PP2+ can power another PP2+, but it's best to email them and ask. It's a 200w outlet, and at full current load on every channel, it supplies 1.1A total. At 9vdc, that's 9.9w. Depending on how much power it uses in the windings, resistors, etc..., it's probably fine.

    The GE-7 is a swiss army knife of pedals. Great for a mid boost and volume boost for a little bit of push. And you can use it as a utility pedal for whatever you need. Speaking of XTS, they modify GE-7s to be less noisy and have a more midrange emphasis. Some Nashville guys use them, some use stock or Analogman modified ones or Vertex modified ones. But almost everybody has one.

    I'm not sure. I know they are a fan of putting a flat piece of laminate on top of pedal trains because they don't like the spaces. They do that on boards you supply, or they use their own flat boards.

    Price wise I guess it depends what you need.

    That said, Barry and Greg are super nice guys and I would totally get a rig done by them but I change pedals way too frequently (usually weekly if not daily) and it'd totally get messy again so there's no point. Maybe when I settle down....lol.

    Here's their website and as I mentioned they are on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

    https://www.xacttone.com

    If you do get something done, tell them Austin Steele sent you!

    Cool! Thanks Austin!!!!!

    My Pedal Pad is basically a sold piece (no holes) of plywood or laminate that's split in half down the center with hinges so you can open each side. I'd like to have my Pedal Powers put underneath, with the power cords exiting the from, to allow me to put a few more pedals on should I so choose.

    May be what I'll do is e-mail them a picture of my board, tell them what I'm looking to do and see what they have to say?


    Thanks again!

    Wonder what kind of pedal board cables these are?

    Will I sound as good as he does if I use them?

    If only it were as easy as that Ray! Of course, you might, but as for me, fuhgeddaboudit.

    Seriously though, I'm not sure? Maybe XTS makes 'em?

    One can easily look at those Nashville boards and clearly see where I get my ideas and influence from these days. :D

    If it wasn't for Nashville and having session and live friends there I wouldn't have heard about the Nobels ODR-1 or the Ibanez Mostortion - two Nashville guitar pedal secrets and staples in my rig.

    I'm glad you have live friends there - better than dead ones....
