Vertex Effect Systems - Custom Pedalboard 11.09.09

Post by Desperado » Sat Dec 05, 2009 5:01 pm

This is a pedalboard that I did for a local pro that plays frequently around the San Francisco Bay Area. He's also an instructor at Berkeley Jazz School which has put out some great musicians such as Charlie Hunter:

Although the size of the board is not too large, it required quite a bit of time. I had to True Bypass the Wah, Vibe, Micro POG, Phase 90, and Dyna Comp. The buffer in the TS-9 helped the signal more so I left it alone. The Deluxe Memory Man is run through a TB Loop. The board is outfitted with all Mogami cable and Switchcraft, Horizon, and Neutrik plugs. All power cables I custom made to size. Also the adapter cords for the DMM and Micro POG were cut to custom lengths. Note the arrangement of the effects are backwards, the player is left handed/left footed. The order of the effects are:

Custom Interface In-->Tuner-->Wah-->Vibe-->Micro POG-->QTron-->Phase 90-->Big Muff-->Interface (Buffer In)-->Interface (Effects Send)-->Dyna Comp-->TS-9-->Box of Rock-->Deluxe Memory Man-->Interface (Effects Return)--->Interface Out

The board sounded great. When A/B'd with the direct sound going to the amp, it nails it. Nice shimmering cleans when no pedals are engaged, low noise. Overall a very dynamic rig.

Looks very clean

Really like the elevated pedals to give the muliti-tier effect.

Great idea

Check out Voodoo Labs pedal switcher & commander. It would be great to control all the pedals

Thanks for the kind words.

The Switcher and Commander would have needed to be run off board in this case. Also, it wouldn't have kept the signal as pure as running through the board directly. It can be a handy tool to have a switcher, but for this particular client and application, this set up was most practical.

You can buy them at any hardware store. It's just a basic lamp extension cord that I've cut down to size for the PP2. Thanks for the nice comments!
