Once a guitarist is bitten by the pedal bug, it’s already too late. They are doomed to an existence with a constant desire to try new things. I am not immune.
When I began setting this site up, I maintained two separate boards, one of which was used for recording, and is pictured on the left, and the other was used for practicing. I have since sold or traded two of the pedals above and replaced another with a new pedal.
This page will now serve as a landing page regarding my pedal collection, the pedal boards I own, and the power supplies that I use to power my boards
Sig Custom Pedal Boards
I own a pair of Sig Custom mini pedal boards that are 12″x10″. It’s enough to fit seven pedals, though a couple of mine are either on the edge or hanging off just a bit.
I forget when exactly that occurred, although I can confirm I bought my second Sig Custom board from someone on TalkBass.com back in late October of 2017. The other was bought via the local Facebook Marketplace and came with a Voodoo Labs ISO 5 power brick.
Sig Custom boards are made locally here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but the domain is for sale and the Facebook page hasn’t had much activity. Hopefully, the guy keeps making boards because they are quality boards. I did message the page in October of 2017 before buying my other board and received a quick response, so it appears that the Facebook page is, or at least was, actively monitored.
The two Sig Custom boards are separated into two distinct roles: a Recording Board and a Practice Board
The Recording board is currently set up with the following:
- Subdecay Vector
- EQD Black Ash
- EQD Hoof v2
- Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe v2
- Zvex Distortron
- Eventide H9
- TC Electronic Nova Delay
The Practice Board is currently set up with the following:
- Wampler Tumnus Deluxe
- JHS @ (clone)
- JHS Sweet Tea v3
- Keeley Super Mod Workstation
- Keeley Delay Workstation
Currently sitting unused, but are easily swapped in are the following:
- Danelectro Cool Cat CF-1 Fuzz
- DOD Rubberneck Analog Delay
- EQD Dunes (clone)
- JHS Angry Charlie v2
- Kokko Compressor
I am currently in the process of looking at 12″x24″ boards so I can put as much on board as I can. I’m hoping I can find out what Sig Customs’ plans are, but if I can’t or they are no longer making boards, I am looking at T-Rex Tone Trunk 56 board.
I currently own two Voodoo Labs ISO 5 power supplies. The ISO 5 works well for a number of small boards because it has the option of a 12v AND 18v out, if one has pedals that can be powered at those voltages.
I have a True Tone 1-Spot CS12 Isolated Power Supply on the way that sho;d be able to power anything I currently have and maybe then some with some DC splitters. The mA draw on a couple of pedals is minimal and I don’t mind them sharing a single isolated power bank.
