Klon Clone Demo

OK, this video is 75% the Klon clone, but I give Amp 11 and the Fuzz Tool Jr. a fair amount of play, I think.

Well, here are my thoughts on the Klon. First off, I have absolutely no first-hand experience with the real thing. But with this Klon clone being a part-for-part reproduction of the original, I trust that I’ve assembled something that sounds faithful to the genuine article. Continue reading Klon Clone Demo

Klon Centaur Clone: Aion Electronics “Refractor”

Shortly after sharing about my new mini-board (here), I acquired a Pluetoneum Chi-Wah-Wah V2 (careful…oddly nsfw) to complete and maximize the usefulness of my new mini setup. I didn’t really feel like posting about it, although I may do a more lengthy demo in the future. Other than that acquisition, it’s all been Boss mods and new complete builds. This one pictured above is one of my proudest completed projects.

Pedaltrain Metro-16

Here’s my mini pedalboard mounted on a Pedaltrain Metro-16, one of their new offerings for 2015.

Previously, I had the old Pedaltrain Mini. Apparently, my model had gone through a couple of revisions. One of them is publicly known and visually obvious. The other, more or less nobody knows about and you really can’t tell just by looking at it. What it comes down to is that my Mini doesn’t accept any non-daisychain power supplies.

Pedalboard as of 06/17/15

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

New Mini Board Setup

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:
TC Electronic Polytune
MXR Analog Chorus
Lovepedal Amp11
Boss CS-2
Boss DD-5 (w/ Monte Allums mod)
TC Electronic Hall of Fame

My Mini Board

20140531-030122-10882777.jpg

I know I mentioned that I’d be featuring my new pedalboard in upcoming entires…this is not it.

At some point I realized that my days of acquiring effects resulted in a small stash of pedals that I didn’t use. So I wondered if I’d be able to make a complete and usable mini effects rig out of them. This is what came about from that curiosity. It’s mounted on a Pedaltrain Mini, and is pretty much really all I need to facilitate my style of playing. What it lacks, you’ll see when I feature my full board. Video demo coming soon, hopefully.

What I like about a stripped down set-up is that it sorta forces you to make do with less. This mini board is made up of exactly half the number of pedals of my full rig. Granted, the effects on this mini board are pretty much the ones I have on most of the time when I’m using my full board, I think the novelty of this smaller set-up still being able to pack quite a punch makes this configuration appealing.

Here’s the signal chain:
Morley Maverick
Boss TU-2
MXR Analog Chorus
Lovepedal Amp11
Boss OD-3
Boss DD-5 (w/ Monte Allums mod)
