Well done. Nice rig. Nice to see another vinyl guy too. Or am I mistaken? It looks like Traffic's "John Barleycorn"?  

The square framed item next to the chair is a Japanese print.  I do have vinyl not quite in the photo.  A bunch of old stuff my parents were getting rid of.  But, i need to get a receiver to get my record player set up.

Ah when I look closer I see they're not albums. My mistake. I'm not sure how you're posting pics. When I use the Additional Options method below, my pics can be clicked on and enlarged using your photo manager. Or does that just work for me because they're mine?

Not just you, Tom...I'm able to click on most other people's pics and enlarge them as well.

If pedals includes the concept of modifying the sound that you would otherwise get by plugging a guitar into an amp, then  by that definition, I do that.

I never got into individual pedals really.  I know that I could and would spend years picking and choosing and trying to figure out the best order and routing and gain staging and power supplies  and cables and cases. I would never get around to playing.

I have one of these that I got a long time ago when I was playing Blues.  Discontinued long ago. They are still around because they are as indestructible as they look.


--== Please click the picture for more details ==--

And love 'em or hate 'em, there seems to be no in-between.

I haven't used it live in years but I keep it around (and haul it out to gigs) as a backup in case my main rig goes down (but that has never happened).

These days I'm using the Kemper Profiling Amp

for everything I need between my guitar and the power amp/speakers. (Bose L1® or Bose Compact depending on the circumstances).

Most of the time I just find an amp profile that I like, and play it. I don't tend to put time into tweaking or adding effects unless there's some iconic sound required for a cover tune.

All I really want is the shortest possible path between inspiration and sound in the room.

I used Flickr because I've had an account there forever.  But their HTML script wasn't playing nice with the forum here.  So it's just a midsized image shown.  What service do you use to post images?

I don't use any. I manage my own photos on my computer and upload them using the "additional options" link below the posting window. I had used whatever "Smile" use to be (Webshots?) but when it became Smile, I lost a bunch of photos that I did not have backed up. Wasn't too happy about that.

Ok, I see that option now.  The only problem is the photos are too large.  Maybe when I have time to reduce them I'll add them back that way.

Thanks

Yes, I use my photo manager to re-size any pics for the forum.

I use a zoom G5 amp sm and multifx unit.  It provides a DI for any PA system and weighs about 10 lb.  I can tap tempo for modulation. FX and the brains allow for time multiplication.  For example, to play U2 and a whole host of modern worship music you need dotted 8th delay which I have set in one of my patches.  Tap in quarter notes, get dotted 8th delay out. It's like magic.

BTW, the big pedal that looks wonky in the photo is part of the two-axis pedal that the G5 and a few other G-series multifx from Zoom provide.  I have the amount of reverb programmed in the left-right arrangement of that pedal, and the amount of delay on the up/down axis of the pedal.

This gives a nearly infinite combination of those two effects and in a typical 5-6 song worship set, about the only thing I do is modify the relative left/right and up/down position of that pedal.  The smaller pedal on the right is my tap-tempo input pedal.

I see folks spending $200+ for each of their pedals on a pedal board, and I have a hard time coughing up that much for a single one-trick-pony effect.  The guitar in that photo only cost me $300 (Epiphone Nighthawk Custom re-issue).  Plus, with these multi-fx units, one can program several different patches with just one pedal button click.  I use the patch I described above (using a Two Rock Emerald 50W amp sim that is my favorite in the Zoom), and usually one other patch where I have a swell effect programmed into the compression - I play 'pads' when the keyboard player cannot, using that patch.

BTW, if anyone is interested in a tutorial of how to build a signal chain using amp and effects, I wrote a blog post on that a year and a half or so ago.  While there is no 'right' order of effects, there are combinations that give a good basis to start with.  This article goes into the thought process behind the sound one is looking for.

https://worshipbandwingman.wordpress.com/category/effects-order/

inside of that post are some block diagrams I made of effect order and how you might use them in an amp, or amp simulation situation.
