    I love that you have a Korg Miku in there with all those high-end goodies!

    That is one sexy pedalboard!

    We tried my Darkglass Duality on guitar yesterday and that guitarists lower jaw is still lying on the floor today.
    He borrowed it for now to see how it handles in the band mix.

    Miku is awesome. An ultimate pedal for annoying your bandmates.

    I just picked up a boss Waza delay. . Managed to squeeze it onto my little pedal board too which makes me happy. Look forward to seeing what comes of it. Especially like it so far on my upright.

    Ha ha I guess that's one way to do it.

    Recently changed my board a little.
    New Boss TU3...not exciting but works well!
    EBS Billy Sheehan is always on with mild Overdrive and compression.
    The MXR is run through the drive channel of the EBS to scoop the tone a little for a modern metal tone....the combo really does produce a decent B3K tone.
    The Broughton really is a versatile pedal....it can do warm\mild OD, roaring medium OD, scooped distortion... .it really can do anything, plus stack well with other drives.
    The MXR chorus I'm actually using in Flange mode, but the standard chorus is nice too.
    MXR EQ is what it is.
    To top it all off the DigiTech CabDryVR. It doesn't get the love of the Omnicabsim, but having owned that unit the DigiTech digital cab IRs sound perfect to me. IMG_20190105_174438~01.jpg

    Gotta love multi band eq. I also have the MXR M-80 and love it.

    Look mom, no Darkglassies!

    But seriously, I took the plunge and got myself a Le Bass tube pre as my tube amp needs repairs and I miss the lively tone that only tubes do offer while playing through my class D amps. It was a bit of a gamble because most bassists can't tell if it does the job since they are used to the boring sound of solid state amps and happy with it. Me I am spoiled to the max and that sound will no longer do.

    So how do I like it? Can't tell yet how I will feel about it in time. It came in today so naturally I am excited about it. But allow me to tell you what I think so far...

    The included power adapter is completely sh*t! The pedal was giving me a 50hz buzz that makes it completely unusable. That adapter is rated 12v, 500ma so I hooked up the pedal to my VoodooLabs ISO5 which has a 12v 400ma output. The pedal luckily lost all of its humming by doing so.

    Le Bass has two channels (clean and driven) and you can combine these two in parallel or series mode. Two Notes named this cold and hot "fusion modes". In cold fusion you simply hear both channels so blend the clean and driven channel. In hot fusion the whole damn thing seems to become overly loud so that is not usable in a live situation.

    The tone controls work great and I found myself cutting lows and highs rather then boosting them since the pedal is somewhat scooping the tone by itself with the dials set at 12 o' clock. The treble is pretty present but this could be due to the 12ax7 tube still needing some break-in hours. We'll see.

    What the pedal does do is make my basses sound more lively, punchy and aggressive so that is a mission accomplished!

    Now about the overdrive this baby offers: It is great! In fact if I keep being as happy about it as I am now I might have no more use for the Alpha-Omega in the future since the Le Bass seems to be doing an equally great job at this.

    I have not tested the D.I. out with its switchable 8x10 cabinet simulator on it. More about that later.

    So far so good, I am happy with this new machine.

    Just tried the D.I. with and without speaker emulation. It reminded me why I use cabinets with tweeters in them - an 8x8 with no horn sounds too dark for me, I grew up on Trace Elliot and SWR!
    The signal I got was very pleasing though, but I liked it more without the speaker emu.

    Added a POG today. Its main role is to replace my OC-2. Believe it or not, I like the sound of the POG better. Digital simply tracks better (if a tad slower) and I like the feeling of control it gives me.

    I am also cautiously optimistic that the additional "octave up" function will suffice in place of my 8-string bass. I wrote half a dozen tunes on that years ago and rarely touch it now, except that I need to bring it to gigs to play those tunes. I'm hoping this thing will be good enough. I actually think I like the sound of it better.

    For now, I'm committing to it. I'm not bringing the 8-string anywhere, and I took the Radial Bassbone off the board since I won't need to change basses anymore. This gave me the room to orient the Chorus pedal "correctly". I kind of hate sideways pedals.

    New Temple Audio Duo 24 with some room to move. At this stage I am going to get a true bypass looper and a mini extension pedal for the boss so it is only on when and if I need some effects. My ultimate plan is to run the AO 900 head and an Eventide H9 with a midi controller but lets see if I can justify the muck around of that by using the Boss first. The band I am in want to cover some tool so i think i will.

    One awesome little feature that I accidentally stumbled on is that Cioks have mounting holes for the Temple board and my PS fit perfect without any bracketry or mucking around.

    Jammed twice this weekend and the AOU was only off for like two songs... so incredible in a band setting.

    Experimenting with two boards. One at my feet and one near the amp with the "always on" stuff on it. The latter is basically a preamp+comp+mute switch.

    Just added my quilter amp to my board. Super quick easy setup. Plug in speaker and go.

    Brilliant! Someone should make a pedal-sized amp head with the controls on top, specifically for this purpose.

    I do not see any purpose in having the amp on a pedalboard. Having it sit on top of the cabinet is much more comfortable for EQ and level tweaking. plus the shorter the speaker cable the better the audio quality.

    Bad idea.

    I'm with Marco about the CONS of having the amp down on the pedalboard.

    That said, I NEED that little amp in my life, for sure.
