About a million years ago, I used to run a blog called EffectsBay. On that blog, the most popular feature I would run was Pedal Line Friday. This is where readers of the site would send pics of their pedalboard and a short (sometimes long) write-up of routing and thoughts about specific pedals and the reasoning why they liked it, etc. Readers. loved this. It was a great way to learn about new applications or techniques regarding pedals. It also brought a little inspiration and knowledge about pedals you were not familiar with. It also brought a great sense of community - people like sharing and absorbing cool things, right? It was a super popular feature, and I loved putting them together.
All you have to do is send a pic of your pedalboard (or pedal line - it doesn't have to be on a board) along with a short (or long) write-up of the board. We want a list of pedals (manufacturer/model), routing would be great, and, most importantly, why you use those particular pedals. Also, this is a great way to promote your band or musical project - include that information as well!
You can send the pic and the write-up to email@example.com.
Hello, I am a weirdo one man band called It&i, and here is my write up of what's on my board: 1.) Digitech Ricochet - This guy is the first in the chain. I use it to do typical Whammy pitch bends, and high octave doodly-bobs on loops, but also to turn my guitar in a six string bass for certain songs; mainly when working with the PLL pedals...more to come on that! 2.) Boss SY-1 - This compact synth pedal does a whole bunch of stuff I sometimes fiddle around with, but, mostly I just use it for a...Read
Attached is a photo of my current pedal board for Bronson Arm. We are a 2pc Baritone GTR and Drums Noise/Punk band from middle America and are currently working with Learning Curve Records. Full disclosure - I own and operate Emerald Circuits. So, yes... I have ALOT of my pedals on my pedal board. If I want a sound and can't buy it... I'll build it. I use a split stereo rig for my baritone guitars. Wiring up my guitars for a stereo output and utilizing your TRS cables with the bridge pickup on...Read
My name is Mike and I play guitar! Playing for over 25 years, my passion for music has shifted. From being in a punk rock band in high school, releasing music I made in my basement during the first months of Covid/quarantine, and now sharing my love of guitar and music with my 2 1/2 old daughter, Joni (partly named after Joni Mitchell). Here's my list of pedals (in chain order), why I play them and as a bonus- I'll tell you the nicknames my daughter has for each. 1. Boss SY1- if we're being...Read
So, I have a problem. Well, maybe it's not a "problem", I just feel a little guilty. I have dozens and dozens of pedals. I probably could build around 10 full pedalboards with all my pedals. So, this is just a current "home/practice" rig. We start with an Acorn Amplifiers Solid State Preamplifier- it's the variation of Acorn's "Peavey Decade in a box" that doesn't have a power amp. I'm using it mostly as a kind of clean boost, that can also do chainsaw distortion. From there we go to the "heart"...Read
We want a list of pedals (manufacturer/model), routing would be great, and, most importantly, why you use those particular pedals. Always a work in progress, here's a recent configuration. - Korg PitchBlack. Put the tuner with the cleanest signal. Also, great for a kill switch! Next, the dirt: - Catalinbread Naga Viper - Catalinbread Karma Suture (Ge) I really like the sound of the Naga Treble Booster hitting the Karma Suture. Pleasant, dirty, but different. - JHS Pack Rat When natural sounding...Read
Just to give a bit of background, I use this rig board for guitar, bass and keys. I'll list everything in the order that it's in, in my chain and then give a brief description. 1. Jam Pedals Retrovibe - The newest pedal on the board but it's been a long time coming. I searched high and low for the "perfect" Univibe. After months of research, I decided to try out Jam Pedals. I was recently able to pick up this used Retrovibe for a smokin deal on Reverb. It perfectly replicates all that swirly...Read
Conan Neutron pedal board fall 2023 1) Boss TU-3 Chromatic Tuner A classic. Weirdly! The newest pedal of the lot of them, I bought a new one on tour at Trading Musician in Seattle. My last one (Tu-2) lasted for 20+ years, a great run. I fully expect the TU-3 will be similar. What can I say? It tunes the guitar. Very important when you use a non-standard tuning (drop-C) 2) Hilbish Compressimiser Yes! A compressor pedal. My joke is that you get one of these handed to you the day you turn 40. I'm a...Read
You and your Team at RCC Rock!!

David Paranzino (The Boneshakers) Pedal Board Signal path as follows: 1 - Peterson Strobostomp pedal tuner : Best most accurate company in the market 2 – Janglebox Compression/Sustain : Compression is my favorite effect. Period 3 – Interstellar Octonaut Hyperdrive : Jury is still out on this one, but it's showing promise 4 – Mooer Synth Pedal : Kinda fun throwing in some unusual analog effects 5 – Electro Harmonix Mel9 : Newest addition, but already a favorite. If you were ever a...Read
Randall Brown (Quartjar) Pedal Board, October 2023 Let's look at this from input to output, or right-to-left as the photo goes. I've activated every pedal for dramatic effect. Guitar was not attached—as evidenced by the unplugged Rattlesnake cable in front the whole rig—to avoid accidental cosmic sonic overload. My dual-amp chain is Electro-Harmonix heavy, as I'm a big fan. Recently, I've been trying out some odd Catalinbread pedals and a curious Way Huge machine. I used the two lines/two...Read
