This is my new 'essensials only' board.

TRAPco buffer > markbass compressore > TC polytune > chasebliss warped vinyl > zoom ms60b (bass drive > bass drive > b-man) > DigiTech jam man xt > TRAPco buffer > fender microDI

I'm pretty happy with it for just producing 'my tone', and having my other (not even wired) board for all my fun effects.

Thanks mate. It's a GigRig QuarterMaster 6. I use the 6th loop just as a send to the tuner so it acts like a Mute switch. Although had the idea of using the output of the tuner and and the return on the QM6 like a patch point so I can insert a PT Nano with all my modulation on!
Thanks!
Btw, which MIDI cables are you using? They look nice and compact. Could not find one of those yet.

Chain in the programmable switch (buzz electronic)
- Wonderlove
- OC2
- Tardis (a bass screamer and a overdrive in one pedal. from technofobia )
- Carbon Copy
- Phaser 99
- Levitation (Reverb+)

After the switch:
- Aguilar compressor.

In the current set we have a few tracks that require 4 pedals at the same time and I was done tap dancing. the switch solves that issue very nicely.
Gear: Ten fingers and a foot.

Just added up all the prices of the pedals on my board plus the psu (T-rex Fuel-Tank). Ouch!

I've just added mine up. All new at shop price is worth more than both my basses. But that's what I love about them. You collect them over time so you never notice.

One new addition to my board, with great thinks to Stingray5 for donating it to the SE Bass Bash raffle - a Joyo Vintage Overdrive pedal.

Posted Image

May not sound exciting but it's a whole voyage of discovery for me. Never really had any interest in overdriven or distorted bass sounds before (and still not really my thing TBH). However, really enjoying how it fills out the wah and funk wah sounds from the Morley Dual Wah. So much so that I'm clearly going to have to upgrade it to a proper bass OD... oh dear, GAS again... I'm usually so GAS resistant...

The DIY trays I made were not really up to the job anymore after I bought a Two Notes Le Bass, this thing is big.
I still need to clean up the wiring but that's a low priority at the moment.

Heres my new downsized board - everything i need and dead easy to cart about :-)

I also have the same Metro 16 as a home practice board with just a Zoom B1oN multi, DOD Milkbox compressor and a BDi21 - this has aux in/headphone out features but doubles up as a spare gig one too.

The board looks okay, but underneath the wiring and power supplies are just laying on floor at the moment, those still need need to be attached to the bottom side of the board.

Not exactly a 'board' yet but a growing number of boxes. I've noticed a hum appearing after the 5th effect was added suggesting that the Power Plant is probably at it's peak. The unique Particle pedal is at the end of the chain but it really need to be near my hands as all the controls sound great if manipulated live. My suspicion is I'll drop the Talking Machine and Particle for electronic gigs and add a looper on the end.

This took 14 months to put together, since I started playing again. It fits inside an old laptop case, and the board is the lid of an olive oil crate (long story).

I have no budget for music, so I've had to buy cheap and when my Beloved wasn't looking.

Anyway, pedals and power cost just £182 in total, which seems cheap, but it's proportionate to my ability!

The plan is to upgrade my bass before I start tinkering with this.  But sometimes it's like an itch you can't scratch 😦

Hers the current permutation. I have a Bass Big Muff and a Crayon Overdrive too. There's a bit of redundancy with the LS2 and the TU3 - losing the latter would give me room for the Muff or another dirt pedal. However, depending on the set, I can either use the LS2 as a blend pedal for the overdrive, to keep more low end or (as here) use it to balance the inputs of my Stingray and Jazz. I only just got the Phase 90 (from the classifieds here). I hadn't clocked that it was the old style knob. I don't know if there is a difference, but subjectively it does seem a tad less transparent tha n the new one I tried, but seems to offers a slightly slower rate too. Good phaser anyway and it does what I need it for.

OK chaps and chapesses, here is my contribution to the noise boards. No dirt involved with this. All about ambientness. Hopefully later this year I'll add an EHX Superego or the new Plus Pedal sustainer due out in June. It is powered by a Pedal Plus 2 and Pedal Plus 4x4. Volume pedal is Ernie Ball VPJR

I've a couple of updates, my Micro-Thumpinator arrived today and I added it. I've bought a new power supply that is hopefully quieter than the old 'brick'. I've now got a flanger, a 36 yr old BF-2. It's sounding good at home, I'll see how it all stacks up Friday evening.

My big board is up and running.
Still not 100% completed; the Polytune is to be moved to another board. An RMI Overdrive is to be attached (when in production - I've preordered one)
next to the RMI Compressor, and a smaller tuner will sit in front of the Lehle volume pedal...
Posted Image

Here is my rechargable board: no tuner to save space. I'll use a TC "pinch" tuner on the bass with this one...
Posted Image

The "old school"-board isn't ready yet; it'll have a new power supply, a Phase 90 and a 3Leaf Audio Proton. And the TC Polytune taken from the big board.
The Bass Clone and PitchBlack+ are for sale...
Posted Image

My 3Leaf Audio Enabler and my Fishman Platinum Pro Eq/DI will work as stand alone units. My Diamond Bass Compressor sits "piggy back velcro'ed" on one of the amps.
Then I pretend to be satisfied...
