My guitar pedal board

Post by Tarekith » Fri Apr 18, 2014 4:02 pm

Been spending a lot of time lately putting together a new guitar set up for my Taylor, though I'm still looking for a really nice modulation pedal. Here's the details on the current set up:

Any other guitar players out there want to recommend a modulation pedal they like?

Fulltone Mini-Deja Vibe (Univibe clone)

Neo Instruments Ventilator Mini Rotary Speaker Simulator Pedal

The price on the MDV is reduced from $199. The Mini-Vent is pricier, but it's as close as you're going to get to the real thing.

Here are the links to the manufacturer's web sites:

Everyone keeps saying H9 :)

Trying to avoid multi-function pedals, or things I need to use an external editor to program. The Flashback x4 is as complicated as I want right now :)

Thanks though!

i understand that. So what type of modulation are you narrowing it down to? the warm is multifunction but still very simple and inexpensive, and it'll fit on your board.

At the moment I'm mostly looking for chorus, flanger, phasor type of effects I guess. I'm leaning towards the TC Dreamscape because it has a few different mod types in a small pedal, but wanted to see what other people recommended too. Not in a hurry to buy, just collecting ideas to research.

That Warm looks nice thanks.

Nice board!

I was lusting after a real pedal set up last year, but then I realized the Line 6 FBV pedals could control Live devices, and decided to try to save some cash and just build a channel in Live for it instead. It has been extremely fun, especially with Max devices. The 4 on/off switches on the Line 6 control:

1. Coyote Wah VST racked with a utility to give a little gain boost when it turns on. (expression pedal for wah)
2. AutoPan set to 0* phase to make it a choppy tremolo effect (expression pedal for frequency)
3. Overdrive (just a light bit distortion)
4. Overdrive (much heavier crunch)

2 other things that are turned on from my Quneo:

-Max envelope follower mapped to an EQ8 with a LP filter for that autowah sound.
-Delay with delay times and feedback mapped to Quneo vertical sliders

Then 3 things that just stay on 99% of the time:

-a Gate (to keep noise/buzz down)
-a Compressor to give it some punch/pluck
-a Convolution Reverb usually set to Swedish Plate 2.5 or 3.0 seconds.

*****

I have been SUPER happy with this set up. The only thing I need to change is to replace the little Line 6 with it's big brother. The bigger one has 10 footswitches instead of 4, and a much sturdier expression pedal. I believe it also has banks, which would be epic.

Thanks guys, both of those suggestions help a lot. Hopefully have some of the new songs I have in progress with the new effects online soon!

Sorry for the bump, I wanted to comment on this the other day :mrgreen:

Did you ever check out Pro guitar shop? They have all kinds of pedals and a youtube channel with good demos for many of them. I bought a Pigtronix philosophers tone from them that I am happy with. Pigtronix has some other really interesting pedals too. You should check it out if you haven't already.

Line 6 FBV pedals could control Live devices
Oh - nice :)

Any pointers on how to do this - could be the answer to my prayers :)
