This past weekend, Sae and I went on our first hot air balloon ride. I bought this voucher for us to go as a Valentines Day gift but we never got around to redeeming them until recently.

This is the latest version of my pedalboard. The newest addition, my Sho ‘Nuff boost in the bottom right corner.
Here’s a closer shot of my drive section. Below is the complete signal path. Continue reading Pedalboard as of 06/17/15
The innards of this Sho ‘Nuff (I really don’t like this name) boost are the same as the one I previous posted about. As I was trying to fit the original one onto my board, I ran into an issue where the DC jack located on top was problematic. So I ordered another enclosure, redrilled all the holes, and moved the DC jack to the side. As you can see, I also went with a different color scheme, which I’m liking much more than the mint green w/ black knobs that I had before. It was too late for me to do any rearrangement on my board, but I’m fairly certain it will fit now.
Here’s my first ever guitar pedal build. In the past I’ve modded my gear and replaced components here and there, but I’ve never built one “from scratch.” The PCB was purchased from guitarpcb.com and this is the Sho ‘Nuff Boost. Continue reading First Pedal Build – Sho ‘Nuff Boost
I really like that the Mexican Strat maintains such modest prestige, yet it’s my favorite guitar to play at the moment. Over the weekend, I did my first modification(s) to it. Keeping the upgrades modest for the most part, this is what I installed: Continue reading First Upgrades
Man, this thing is bright.
If you follow my blog…who are you? Anyway, what I was saying is…if you follow my blog, you know that I’ve owned this pedal before in the original mint green. I was really excited to try it out. But long story short, it didn’t really do it for me. I sold it. (I’ll go into some detail about how it sounded to me below) Continue reading Walrus Audio Voyager (Pink Edition)

So I spent the better part of this past Saturday swapping all the parts of my bike back to my old Kilo TT frame. The difference of the geometry between the white frame and this one is slight, but I like this one a bit more. It’s getting warmer and I can’t wait to ride again.
Following my new-found appreciation for compression placed post-dirt, I decided to redo my mini rig. I also swapped out the TU-2 for the Polytune I had sitting around. To my surprise/delight, the rearrangement even allowed me to cram in one more pedal (added Hall of Fame reverb). For some funny reason Jesus’ miracle of the feeding of the 5000 came to mind…
Here’s the signal chain:
