THE PEDALBOARD - ELECTRIC

With the amps I have this board is usually only taken out when I go to an open mike, or someone house and use their amplification. This has to be one of the smallest pedal boards in history, but to most traditional blues players, I still use too many effects! lol

All the pedals are on a Stomp Box pedal board (Pedaltrain knock off). powered by a True Tone, One Spot.

A leather Pick Holder - velcro'd on the board - A nice little inexpensive way to always have a pick handy.

EFFECTS GOING FROM RIGHT TO LEFT


1. SNARK - Floor Tuner (SN 10-S) - I have tried many floor tuners. I like the SNARK because it's accurate and the display is nice and big. Another plus side is when the pedal is engaged, it cuts the signal to your amplifier. This is great if you need to flop out guitars on the fly.

3. Xotic BB-Preamp - I cannot tell ypu how many times I have taken this pedal off my board only to buy it again.
The pedal sounds great on all amps, and one of the best sounding overdrives hands down!

4. TC Electronics – Corona Chorus – Pretty little sounding chorus for ballads. Also, if you set the speed right, you can get an somewhat convincing Leslie sound with it too.

5. Boss DD-3 Delay -
If you're not copying Brian May solos and just want a little delay to wetting things up a tad, this is your pedal. The Favorite delay pedal of Joe Bonamassa.

2. MXR Micro Amp Plus – This pedal is strictly a booster for solos. With a volume and tone control in the sound hole it was the most effective way of getting a volume boost, if playing with another guitarist.

3. TC Electronics Corona Chorus – Just wanted something to add a little flavor to the natural acoustic sound. I just thought It was the best choice.

4. TC Electronics Hall of Fame Reverb – The plate setting seemed best to me for acoustic work. Though my amp has reverb, I wanted one on the board just in case I decided to just go right into a PA system.

5. Rapco Horizon DBBLOXF Lo to Hi Z Transformer Direct Box (Optional). I have this to where I can Mount it on the side of my pedalboard. Up until this point I have never used a direct box. I did some research and found a cool article called “Direct Box 101”. It recommended when using a guitar that already has a preamp, buy a passive direct box…so that’s what I did!
