Brian Ray Pedal Boards

Here is a couple of boards I did for Paul McCartney guitarist Brian Ray. First up is his main pedal board and the second is a small travel board . The chain of the big board is Foxrox Octron-eq-Guitar systems Fuzz tool-Yeti fuzz-wah-Custom Buff Puff Boost-tuner-Martini chorus-El Capistan delay- Glab reverb and then the Line 6 M9 out stereo.
Stand outs. — Foxrox octron just the best. Also the Guitar Systems Fuzz Tool was a very cool fuzz. Really I have to say everything on the board was very cool so I guess everything is a stand out.

richie Sambora guitar rack

Here is a new rack I just finished for Richie Sambora. Guitar comes into the rack and hits 2 RJM Effect Gizmo’s with all the pedals in them. Then it hits the Custom Suhr amp switcher which i added a line out . The Suhr switcher switches between 2 heads of choice into a dry cab. The line level portion of the rig can be used in 2 ways. One is with the line out to feed the line level effects and the other is the BAE mic pre. Any way either feeds the line level effects and then to the power amp or the D.I. Enjoy

Slash solo tour pedal board

Here is a simplified pedal board for the new Slash solo tour. There is a rack with 2 of his Marshall amps one for clean and one for dirty and his wireless gear. [ i will post that later] The chain is the the smart gate -tuner-wah-q zone-phase 90-bluebox-cae boost-mxr chorus-dunlop trem- boss dd3 and then the a/b out to the interface on the side of the pedal board. Output B has a iso transformer installed. Everything is mounted to a Fantastic Trailer Trash pedal board. I like these for the ability to to have all the interface options on the side and the ability to make a very clean look to the board. Enjoy more pics to come of the rack.

All pedals are powered by the Glab power supply and there is a additional power transformer built into the board to power the Providence switcher and the Amp gizmo. Enjoy
