    my band myspace has some out of date stuff.

    myspace.com/curiouseyeband

    I don't build pedals, but I sell Nick Greer amps and Pedals, and Reinhardt amps. 2 of the best amp builders in the biz in my opinion.

    Call me crazy but I now have 3 pedalboards: Big, Medium, Little (at least that's how I think of 'em).

    My big board is the one I leave at my regular weekly church gig (too darn heavy to lug back and
    forth). It has the most effects on it, which is useful since I don't use a regular tube amp and I rely
    on the pedals to get my sound.

    [​IMG]

    My medium board is kept at home with my Peavey Classic 30 amp. This is the setup I'll take out to
    most jam sessions/gigs (other than church). It is designed to give me all the effects I need but also
    to take advantage of the amp's features (tube amp distortion/overdrive and reverb). As you can
    see, I'm in the middle of soldering plugs on custom-fit cables as I've reworked the entire board
    recently.

    Oh, the metal box in the middle is going to be a true bypass 2-channel looper to help clean up my
    signal path - I'm running the wah/overdrive on bypass 1 and the Tremolo/Chorus/Phase/Flange on
    bypass 2). As I don't use these effects on several songs, I thought it would be cleaner to keep
    them out of my path whenever possible. As always, everything is powered by a 1-Spot. I run this
    board from the amp's effects loop. I run my guitar directly into the amp (either cable or Sennheiser
    wireless depending on the gig).

    [​IMG]

    This little guy is used with my Taylor T5 (and/or if I want an easy "grab and go" board when I plan
    to go direct into the P.A. and not use an amp or extra effects, etc.). The DI box lets me tweak my
    sound and it is a really great setup for a guitar like the T5, which can alternate between serving as
    an acoustic or electric guitar.

    [​IMG]

    All of the above makes perfect sense to me. Of course, the wife stills asks
    "Why do you need all those things?!?!?"

    Now let me say that while I'd never hide anything from my wife, I don't go out of my way to
    point out to her that I now have 3 boards - what she don't know, can't hurt me! :fingersx:

    While many will call me crazy and say this is overkill, let me explain things a little more...

    As previously stated, my big board stays put at church (my old back doesn't need to lug that
    weight around to practice and then again on Sunday services).

    As for the need for a separate (little) board for my "acoustic" (the Taylor T5), there are times
    when I may take/use 2 pedalboards at the same gig. For example, I'm playing alternating between
    the T5 and my electrics (Les Paul, 356, etc.). I'll have the T5 into the small board into the PA.
    The electrics will play thru one of the larger boards into my amp or whatever. It's one thing to
    switch guitars between songs but you can't be rerouting signals between PA and amp, etc. in the
    middle of the set.

    Even at church I'll sometimes take the T5 and small board and let one of the other guys play it
    while I'm playing electric simulataneously. Depending on who is playing acoustic that week, my T5
    may be a better sounding guitar than say, their Yamaha. Of course, the guy with the Martin never
    wants to swap out for the Taylor - go figure :)

    Anyway, yes, it is a sickness I guess (or at least the results of some major GAS pains over the
    last 2 years) but it works for me.
