    Also, delays eat batteries like crazy.

    don't get me wrong ... it's a massive pain in the ass. Pain in the ass to fix, pain in the ass to plug each pedal each time you want to play, and then to unplug each pedal each time you're done playing. And batteries are expensive here. The wah and the fuzz last quite a while, the DS2 is pretty good, but the Chorus eats batteries for lunch.



    But as you can see, i'm already looking at too many cords. Cords are ugly.

    He really seems to be your guitar hero. He's not mine but RHCP is just not right without him.

    But I listen to a lot of different music.

    Thinking of maybe grabbing this to start with. Comes with a power supply and case. I'll outgrow it at some point, as I'll have to cut the foam to get it to fit non-standard pedals, but think this might be a good start point.

    unless you have 9 pedals to work with and you need to be on stage, just put them on the floor.

    That's not how I roll. A place for everything and everything in its place.

    no, buy those connectors that puts them in a nice line. $150 should first be spent on pedals.



    if you need other judgement applied, I have a Beringer tuner and I hate it. Waiting to find a Boss pop up on craigslist.

    I have a TC Electronic polyphonic mini tuner that I got for free from Epiphone. Come income tax return think I'll pick up a pedal or two like that Big Sky.

    Keep in mind this pedal board comes with power supply. I need a power supply as the mini has no battery compartment.

    It's worth checking out a few of his solo albums if you haven't already. You definitely get the impression, between those and RHCP's latest, that he was a huge driving force behind their songwriting.

    I also find Anthony's vocals and lyrics to get more annoying as time goes on, so that probably doesn't help either.

    yeah, I hear you, but i'm meh on $150 from a crappy brand (in my experience). Batteries will run quieter compared to that thing in all likelihood.

    also, real awesome men build their own pedalboards. even more awesome men make them have 2 platform of different heights.

    i was listening to Smile from the Streets You Hold the other day. Fucked up shit. I like the title song a lot.

    Real men might do that but experienced men know DIY projects have a way of taking on a life of their own. :teach:

    yes. But pedals first. Trust me.














    also, trusting me can be a bad idea. I had my father pillage the old fx bin. Boss reverb, Line 6 DL4, and Line 6 MM4 incoming. Fuck.
