Here is an Eric Johnson inspired pedalboard completed for forum member Greg777. The pedalboard is built around a TKI Loopholic Programmable Switching System.

The client was looking to attain popular tones achieved by Eric Johnson with the additional flexibility to patch pedals into the Loopholic (namely modulation) outside of the pedalboard. Also, the client wanted the capability to run a possible four amps at once. The interface allows for A/B switching sourced at the Loopholic, and the T.C. Chorus is wired into the interface to allow for STEREO use when the STEREO output is plugged into on the output side of the interface, or MONO (through either Amp A or B) when the STEREO output is NOT used on the output side of the interface. The interface shorts the STEREO output and returns the signal MONO back to the Loopholic to achieve this.


To power the pedalboard, the use of two power supplies was necessary, however I modified the Pedal Power AC to function completely as a DC Power Supply, generating 1AMP (1,000mA) on the two right power outs (one at 15VDC, and the other at 12VDC) to power both the Loopholic and the T.C. Nova Delay. The two left outputs supply both 9VDC, however they are unused.



Lastly, in keeping with Eric Johnson's set up, the client requested that I use George L cables, however, I soldered and terminated all of the cables with traditional plugs for longevity and durability instead of solderless plugs.

The order of the effects are:

INTERFACE (Passive)--> Fulltone Clyde Wah--> TKI LOOPHOLIC INPUT
LOOP 1: Fulltone 70's Fuzz
LOOP 2: MXR Dyna Comp
LOOP 3: Goudie TS-808
LOOP 4: B.K. Tube Driver
VOLUME: Goodrich Volume Pedal (out to Boss TU-12)
LOOP 5: EHX Deluxe Memory Man XO
LOOP 6: T.C. Nova Delay
LOOP 7: Open Loop
LOOP 8: T.C. Stereo Chorus

I'll will get demos out on this one ASAP, still lining up a player that has good EJ chops.
