    why not take the back off the Fuzz and resolder the power socket to 'correct' power polarity?

    I'm in the process of putting together a mini board myself. However, my approach it's going to be to copy a Chemistry Works holey board design albeit much smaller and out of wood. I'm a bigger fan of using zip ties than Velcro. I'm probably going to go with all mini pedals including a Peterson tuner, Tube Screamer Mini, a first-generation tumnus, an mxr carbon copy Mini and a small power supply. I'm hoping this will work well and a very small stage environment.
    It's for that situation where you literally get a corner of the pub and your drummer just had to bring the double bass kit or 15 cymbals and the singer thinks he Freddie friggin' Mercury or Axl Rose and needs room to jump around. Also a smaller board is a smaller target for the drunk that just has to tell you how great you sound as he spills on the floor.

    The BellEpoch could be turned so that the 1/4 in inputs are facing to the right and the bypass switches to the left. This would add a little space for the Maxon. Nice board!

  • Schwurbel
    Schwurbel 13 days ago

    Generator + Distributor + Isolator + Highcurrent Adapter + Doubler to power 4 pedals... Where a single Cioks DC 5 would have sufficed.
    This just shows again that the Gigrig stuff is absolutely useless for compact boards.
    (Had to edit twice because more and more Gigrig modules kept showing up.)

    I like the idea of mini pedals but they all seem to have less features.....and the biggest problem i have is the wah pedal is too small to step on so....why bother, its hard enough to step on em when i can see em
    Lol notice he put glasses on anyone?

    • That Pedal Show
      That Pedal Show  19 days ago

      Michael used to be a common name here in the UK. It is sometimes shortened to Mick, which also has Irish roots/connotations. Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton aren’t called Mick though, so there are at least two who aren’t. Oh, and David Gilmour.

    I just put together my Pedaltrain Classic Jr. I put a Vitoos DC 8 isolated power supply underneath the board. It has A & B ports that are 9/12/18V 1000mA each then 6 more 9 V 300mA. I have one reverse power for my Eventide Pitch Factor. One BD-2 and Xotic SP in front of the amp. BiYang Stereo Reverb, TC Transition Delay, and Nu-X Modcore. I use another board by the mic stand, That has DigiTech Drop, remote for Eventide Pitch Factor. After the Drop signal goes to the wah. Then it is sent to the BD-2&Xotic SP on the other board, I just built. Also, on the mic stand board has a TC Body Rez, Parametric EQ for a piezo signal to a D.I. Box.

    go minimalist, just use a towel rather than a pedalboard, you don't really need that stuff internet says you must have, it's same as the kitchen tool your mum never really used. if you are not maniatic with cable management nor territoriality then just use a towel. keep things simple. it is lightweight. more clean than a carpet. you don't have to carry that metal and wood weird furniture through airports. it is not a need and creates problem.

  • lapk78

    Why would it be preferable (or different at all, for that matter) to run a fuzz off a battery as opposed to a power supply?

    • hoboroadie
      hoboroadie 23 days ago +1

      I think if you're not isolated the reverse polarity could be a problem. Batteries do settle the isolation question, and an analog fuzz should have a very low drain. Some folks think certain pedals need battery mojo, and it is quiet power so I wouldn't dispute that, but idk. ✌

    • That Pedal Show
      That Pedal Show  24 days ago

      I fast forwarded that bit! And yes, many many people watch the whole thing. Depends how ADD, modern entitled, ‘the whole world revolves around me’ you are about it I guess. Sometimes time spent is worth it. It’s the backbone of our philosophy that there are no answers only better questions, and the journey is always more interesting than the destination. Nevertheless, much of the world is still all about the quick fix and instant answers. Not us. As you say, each to their own!

  • Joe Nugent

    Potentially stupid question here, is the quartermaster powered off of an isolator or does it come straight off of the distributor?

    Question regarding the polarity reversing cable attached to the fuzz pedal. Couldn't the pedal designer simply reverse the positive and negative connections to the power jack inside the pedal, eliminating the need for external polarity switching cables, or is it more complicated than that?

    I recently watched one of Dan's build videos and saw him stripping insulation from cables using a pair of scissors, which I thought was brilliant! I've tried it, and found that it works much better for me than using one of those multi-gauge strippery tool thingies, and not as scary as wielding a pen-knife near my fingertips.

    Of course, using the loop switcher, you have to use patch cables, but what do you think about pedal couplers? They are much tidier - do they have lower impedance than cables?

    Quick tip for anyone with a Metro pedalboard who wants to raise it further off the ground. Whilst Mick's wood solution is totally functional, I bought some rubber feet from B&Q made by Diall which are designed for the bottom of chair legs. The ones with a 18mm diameter hole in them (warmed under a hot tap) push firmly on to the feet of the Metro and lift the rear of the board by about 2cm. Pack of four costs £1.12. www.diy.com/departments/diall-black-plastic-leg-tip-dia-18mm-pack-of-4/1725478_BQ.prd

    Hi Mick, I know it's That PEDAL Show but after seeing several of your boardbuilds, vlogs and all regular shows (thanx so much, I learn a little something every time I tune into this channel and get inspired to play) I have to ask: Could you do a show on cables? What cables can you use from your guitar to your board, what cables work well as patch cables, is there a "better" cable to use from your board to your amp than the in you use form your guitar to your board, how do contraction, impedance and length affect the cable, and so on... Quite frankly I can't get my head around all the info that's out there, so if you could break it down (preferably with diagrams and sock puppets ) that would be great!

    • That Pedal Show

      Dan has built boards for many people who would argue otherwise. Stronger signal, increased headroom, more clarity, less noise. Like any system though it depends what you're listening through and how you play. For sure the touch/dynamics players who use revealing amps and guitars will hear and feel it the most. It's not for everyone but it absolutely is for me. :0)

      ​@That Pedal Show I think they are useful in some cases, but for the purpose you want to use it now and for the size of the pedal board it is just too much for such an small benefit

    This may be a dumb question but, what's the point of the Quartermaster if you only have 4 pedals on the board? Seems like you can just as easily do without it.

    • That Pedal Show
      That Pedal Show  Month ago

      I talk about it in the video. Watch the pedalboard builds with Matt Schofield and Kirk Fletcher. Cleaner, louder, less tone suck basically. People don't believe it can make a difference.... Until they hear it. Cheers!

  • Jim Kranz
    Jim Kranz Month ago +1

    Mick, if you have a pedal that needs a reverse polarity power plug and you are using a gigrig power system, why not just reverse the wires that go into the Isolator? (Instead of buying a cable to do that)

  • Perilious Temple
    Perilious Temple Month ago +1

    Loved and learned as always. It is impressive how you maintained as apparently consistent level throughout. It’s so basically important but is not always the most obvious thing. Is there any dinking with Logic in that regard or is what we are hearing from the rig that consistent? I mean the boost sound like eq shaping more than level changes. Bravo. Sounded Ace.

  • Noah Tyson
    Noah Tyson Month ago +1

    Hey, what about a video about a vocal pedalboard? I know lots of folks do it. Also, there are a lot of people that dont know how too do it. What with, the difference in high z, and low z, when using guitar pedals. Ive used both a bunch of low too high adaptors, and now a small mixer, for a preamp. There are also, the type that have xlr, ins and outs.
    Something, too think about.
    Great video

    Hey Guys! I am trying to figure out how to up my game pedal board wise. I am still running a Voodoo Labs Pedal Power with 8 pedals on a Pedal Train 2. Wondering if a switcher is right for me? Do you guys ever do consults over the phone about this type of stuff? Love the GigRig stuff - as a 40 year old working guitarist I feel like my rig needs a facelift :-)

    00Resev Month ago

    ...Really?
    How much tap dancing is there going to happen on a board with four pedals to justify the use of a switcher at all?
    I really don't want to come out as negative, but its inevitable, this whole thing felt like a "one million dollar solution, for a one dollar problem"...

    • 00Resev
      00Resev Month ago

      Fair enough.
      I understand your reasoning.
      Any single pedal goes trough one True Bypass signal, instead of the chain of pedals.
      I get it now.

    • That Pedal Show
      That Pedal Show  Month ago

      The switcher isn't really there to help with tap dancing. It's there for signal integrity. Once you hear it (along with really great power) you kinda notice it when it's gone. I agree that you could get good results with 'less' but I haven't really been interested in that approach for about 20 years now. No compromise, always. It's what we do!

    I'd save myself all those pieces on the pwr supply & just get a Voodoo Lab ISO-5 for those 4 pedals & switcher. Same silent isolation, 18VDC, etc, etc.

    • That Pedal Show
      That Pedal Show  Month ago

      Ah, but no. The 18 volt does maximum of 100ma as do the three 9 volt taps. Too restrictive for me. I'd be buying another one for the next board (as I have done many times with all in one bricks). So close, but no cigarillo. Cheers!

    I really don't get fuzz into clean amps. It's like the sound equivalent of the sensation of microfiber cloth sticking to callouses. Just... Icky, pokey, tuggy, and sticky. Overdriven amp or at least some kind of overdrive taking the fuzz is where its at.

    • That Pedal Show

      Agree, I looked at the Gig Rig stuff and figured over kill (too complicated for my brain) for 5 pedals.
      I do wonder when Pedaltrain will jack the height of their boards up. Seems an obvious requirement for many people.

    • Mark Hughes
      Mark Hughes Month ago

      Just bought a Nano+ and found the cheap power supply I have doesn't fit unless I do a ”Mick mod” and that ain't happening! Shame that The Gig Rig power supply requires the same modification so I have a Strymon R30 on order and no messing with daisy chains i.e. power -> distribution -> isolator...etc
      The Gig Rig products are great (i’m sure) but a little over engineered for my simple needs/skills and it also doesn't fit under the Nano+ 😢

      @That Pedal Show hey if it works for you 😊.it took me years before i bought a good power supply ,an isolated power supply is a game changer. You have peaked my interest in the quartermaster though.

      You know what you know! I have all TheGigRig stuff that powers all of my boards. It is absolutely the best supply system available - yes it's expensive and ostensibly fiddly and probably overkill for this type of board. But... I'm not buying anything else now. Use what you have people!

    Great vid!!! So what the hell fuzz face style fuzz wouldnt get lost in a live mix?? Maybe the fulltone 70 since it has the mids knob? What does everyone think?

      It's a good point. I think you need a really aggressive amp... Maybe why they worked so well with 100 watt plexus. :0)

    Sounding great Mick, & saved for future reference. I'd buy that Seafoam Schmidt Array just to put my tea on; what a piece of work!

    I love that you guys have ‘dear friends’. I’m guessing it comes from Dan originally. Speaks to a more civilised time that we should aspire to (particularly on the internet). Cool video as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • ShenierHandmadeTone

    great as allways Mick!
    You are missing the wah!

  • Liam O’ Callaghan

    @Mick why not jumper two outputs on the iso to get 18volts ...? Seeing as the vibe isn’t very power hungry....?

    The new board at the end Looks a bit like an old ladies typewriter 😝

    Surprised to see the vibe after the fuzz. I never liked the sound of vibe after fuzz

      Yeah I know what you mean. I don't really like it before either. I tend to use it more with overdrives

    Could you possibly do a review of the MXR shin juku dumble-style overdrive? Great Vid as always !

    I prefer One Spot multi output (isolated) power adapter - just one unit and does the job.

      When i was making my main pedalboard, TheGigRig was taken into consideration. But for convienience’s sake One Spot solution was more for me (nerdy, but lazy me). One Spot is quite heavy TBH...

      How did you get on with ThrGigRig Modular System?

    Hey Mick, If you had to choose between the Fulltone Univibe unit shown here and the expression pedal version, which one would you choose? Thanks!

      @That Pedal Show PS: totally un-related, thanks to you (Mick), I bought a delightful '95 Mexican strat and am trying to learn Lenny. Thanks!!

      This for size. The other for functionality. Although you can add an expression pedal to this...

    Fantastic board. I’m so impressed at the OD9... You can run the Bad Bob without the TS on, which surprised me!

    Cool board Mick! If you want to reverse polarity, can't you just plug the isolator wires in reverse, do you really need the orange contraption?

    Why don't pedal train just make the smaller boards that fit proper power supplies underneath?
