    I've been generally pretty pleased with my Diago pedalboard: it's solidly made, a nice size and looks good too. The one thing that has annoyed me, however, is the "lip" around the side which prevents you from being able to plug in to the first pedal unless it's a decent distance away from the lip or is on a "riser" - which is the option I went for but this meant I had to run something other than the wah first (since rising that up wasn't an option!) and that in turn meant I couldn't get the wah all the way over to the right where I would most prefer it. Boo!

    So, today I finally got around to doing something I've been meaning to for ages: I installed a couple of solderless locking jack sockets through the "lip” on either side. These give you a locking 1/4” jack socket at both ends so you simply wire up with patch cables permanently and then use the exterior sockets for connecting the board up to guitar/amp. All very neat and professional!

    Now all my pedals can be wired up *exactly* how I want them: including wah-first and as far over to the right as possible.

    Good news is....you got a "Soul Food" up in the right top corner.

    Thanks - yes, the volto does the job pretty nicely and easily does a 3-4 hour rehearsal. Would probably do twice that but I tend not to risk it! Mind you, I've deliberately chosen analogue pedals with a relatively low current draw: think the Carbon Copy is the only thing over 100mA - even the Nano POG is only 25mA with everything else probably < 20mA per pedal.

    Not sure about the pedal order there but I hope you've got a decent buffer up front!!

    Very neat sockets but any chance of the external jack plugs getting stepped on and snapped?

    It must be my nervous disposition but those in and out jacks :eek:. Do I have a problem? Do I need to see a psychiatrist? :hmm:

    Thought so - I may have to unwatch this thread for medical reasons.

    My Epiphone Valve Standard has built in digital effects (several different delays, flanges, and chorus). The chorus and flanger effects sound like garbage, but the delays aren't too bad. The purple switch is to turn the effects on and off, I always keep it on a short "slap back" delay.

    I keep trying different stuff and I keep coming back to these three dirt pedals!

    On the whole it's amazing how much you can do with this board. Verrah pleased.
