This Temple Audio Trio 28 board holds my whole guitar rig. The Guitar Butler by Orange is my pre-amp, and the Seymour Duncan Powerstage 200 is the power amp. The PS 200 drives the 2x12 Peavey cabinet (Celestion Vintage 30 and G12T-75), and it also has an xlr out that can go straight to the house PA and monitor sends. I can play live with or without the cabinet, depending on the venue. The Guitar Butler has a buffered effects loop, so all the time based effects go through the loop, and everything else goes in the front of the pre-amp. You will see that the guitar cable, speaker cable, and more than a few of the patch cables are Rattlesnake Cables. The signal path goes in to tuner, Drop (super handy for covers in a live setting), Sub and Up, Warden compressor, Grey Channel two channel overdrive, JHS buffer, and into the front of Guitar Butler. From effects loop send the signal hits the noise gate, Tidewater tremolo, Grand Orbiter phaser, Chorus, Dispatch Master delay, EQ, Ditto looper (used for practice, not live), Spark clean boost, into effects loop return. The signal the goes in to the PS 200, and that functions as the master volume for the whole set up. Pedal Power True Tone CS12 is mounted under the board and powers everything but the PS 200.
The whole thing is portable, loud, relatively bomb proof, and it provides a wide variety of tones that I use when performing with my band. Yes, I have a 50 watt tube amp (1995 Peavey Classic 50 with the same speakers as the cabinet above that I have owned since new), but I have not played it since I set this up two years ago. This thing is flexible and easy. I play both my electric and acoustic guitars, depending on the gig, through it.
Cheers, and thank you for the great cables I’ve purchased from you!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
