Here is a small hint, if your using the 2 " velcro supplied by Pedal Train ?

Put full 2 " stripes of the loop (fuzzy) side,,, down onto the entire length of cross bars of the Pedal Train.

Then for the pedals themselves cut the hook pieces into two 1 " wide and just under the width of the Pedal (for it's length) then place one strip towards the top of the pedal, and one towards the bottom of the pedal (so that they catch spanning two of the cross bars. (make sense ?)

This will hold the pedal securely BUT allow you to pull the pedal off to move it, if you decide change the order or add any new pedals, with out starting to lift the loop side attached to the Pedal Train board .
For now anyway IMO, do not place the hook side in a full 2 inch width configuration and full height of pedal as it gets really really hard to try to pull them.

Thatís some great advice there since Iím sure pedals will come and go quite often. Thanks!

I've never heard of the Prophet before but it's got a cool vintage vibe to it. I thought it might have been an Tubescreamer clone until I read the fine print on the pedal. How do you like it?

I have yet to try it since I had no time to fire up the amp last night. By the time I had time for myself, it was already past 8pm so I just practiced through headphones with my Katana. But once Iím off work today at 3pm, Iíll go straight home and try it out. Watched a few YouTube videos and many agree that this might be one of the greatest budget delays at just $69.99. Couldnít pass it up.

Followed Kevís advice, and I totally get it. Pedals are secured yet easy to move.

Here it is powered up by batteries and daisy chain. Tomorrow the voodoo power leads come in, and sometime next week, the mounting bracket. Then Iíll make all nice and neat.

Looks good, I would like to take credit for the idea , but actually it was advice from "That Pedal Show" on YouTube (a very dangerous show to ones bank account )

My bank account just about gave up on me already. This is my worst GAS binge in years, if not ever. I never bought a guitar, an amp, and a bunch of pedals and all the expenses that comes with that in the space of two weeks. [emoji23]

I feel your pain... I started building a pedal board, and a few weeks later I had more cash into it than a nice guitar! I do like the board though

I love my board, I totally get it now. Even though my Katana amp has modeled just about every Boss pedal ever made, thereís nothing like the organic sound of an analog pedal through a tube amp. Building the thing was a lot of fun too! Iím also playing a whole lot more guitar now too.

This is how it looks now. I moved the phaser in front after the overdrives but before the distortion and wow what a difference!

+1. Something special about the natural tube breakup.

Yeah I canít believe I deprived myself for so long. I guess because tube amps are generally expensive, and solid state modeling amps have come such a long way. But tube amps are something special.

Ok and more GAS! I just couldnít pass this up since this is a guitar I always wanted. Even though itís the Sterling version, itís a hell of a guitar. Neck-through, and very well constructed. If it wasnít for the made in Indonesia stamp, this would probably pass as a USA made guitar.






Even though itís a Petrucci model, Iím dying to play the Purple Rain solo. [emoji23]

Thank you! Itís a shredding guitar, but also very versatile. It even has a pre-amp with a 12db boost push-push switch on the volume pot.

Hereís a quick video. Peavey amp with screamer, Vox, and delay on the clean channel and volume as low as possible with the dial set between 1-2. Who said tube amps have bad tone at low volumes?
