baritones:

Today I found this wacky Ibanez PDS1 that I’d never even heard of for $40 at a pawn shop.
I was like “this is gonna sound terrible but it’s interesting and cheap so whatever”
I was pleasantly surprised to get it home, plug it in, and find that it sounds awesome!
I guess it’s an all analog but digitally controlled SM9 super metal circuit with 19 presets!
Editing is a bit of a pain as always with old stuff like this but once I’ve got it set up it should be pretty mindless.
This thing would be a great pedal to just throw in a guitar case for some random jam when you’re not sure what you might need. It’s got a pretty huge range of tones from almost ts9 style light drive all the way through crunchy scooped metal. Plus the dry out could be super handy.
This was a very good accident.

I guess there’s four other pedals in this series:

Plus a midi interface to control up to 4 pedals at once.
I’m very tempted try to get my hands on a PDM1.
And here’s a somewhat ok/somewhat cheesy demo of a few of them…

I had one of these. It was a pretty fun and useful pedal. Ultimately, my pedal overload made it expendable and I sold it for a couple bucks more than you bought yours for. It’s probably a great pedal for someone who has a reasonable number of pedals. I’m guessing most of us are on the unreasonable side of pedal ownership though.

working since 2 days on a new #pedalboard. Pure chaos! Concept and sound are incredible, but to find the perfect solution for transport and power managment drives me crazy. Will be awesome in the end! #digitech #silvermachine #palmergermany #fameguitars #cordial

New Pedal! Totally Ruined Circuits Mouthbreather Fuzz Boost. I just got this awesome pedal, with customized (vintage) Godzilla art. This is a really cool pedal. With the fuzz selected alone, you get classic fuzz range, from hairy grind on the low end to full on spitting and sputtering on the high end.

What really makes this pedal great IMHO is the boost side. One of the issues with even great fuzz pedals is that they can become almost unusuable when played into an already overdriven amp. No problem here, just kick on the boost and instead of an overall volume boost you get a boost of just the right frequencies to make this pedal play nice with a distorted amp. It’s so perfect that you wonder why every fuzz pedal doesn’t have this feature.

The pedal is all hand painted. The wiring is neat and clean. Even the box is cool. Thanks totallyruinedcircuits

New amp came today. 65 Amps London Pro 18. It took 2 months to get it from when I ordered it, but so far I’d say worth the wait.

Did some more rearranging today. Look at all the room for activities!

Anyone remember when I was talking about making a splitter and putting a separate EQ to run a third signal with a low pass filter to a bass amp to handle the low frequencies of my seven string?
I was cleaning the back of my rack and noticed my EQ had a sub out with a built in crossover. Problem solved! I’m going to get an XLR/1/4” adapter tomorrow and live the dream!

I’m assuming the amp on the left with the vertical red stripes is an old Harmony. I have a 2x12 cab just like it. Coolest looking thing I own. Are the stripes terry cloth on yours too?

Last one for today. The right side of the board showing the hardwired input and dual output jacks. The back of the board getting power.

This is exactly what I want to do with my next board.

I need to save this for later as inspirarion.

pedalspedalspedals- thanks. This was our first pedalboard build and we definitely learned a lot. Feel free to message me if you have any questions or just want to bounce around ideas.

The pedalboard all done and actually being used in the studio. This project was a lot of fun and the best part was how well it actually works. Here’s the signal path:

Guitar —> input on side of board—> T1M Mini Buffer—> BBE The Wah—> Loop-Master True Bypass Loop (Tuner Out —> TC Eledtronic Polytune; Loop 1—> Ibanez TS808; 2—> Analog Man King of Tone; 3—> Skreddy Lunar Module Mini Deluxe; 4—> Maxon Phase Tone; 5—> Ibanez CS9 Chorus; 6—> Mooer Trelicoptor; 8—> MXR Carbon Copy; 9—> Electro Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb) —> MXR Smart Gate —> Loop-Master A/B/Both —> Outputs (2) on side of board
