A video of you running a couple sounds with that insane rig would have been sweet :yesway:

So, how did the shuttle launch went? :lol:
We packed it up, and shot it up. Then BANG! A hero's death!

In all seriousness, it was actually easy to operate. I only used the Fishman on 2 songs, and the Guitar Synth was only on whenever I needed certain synth sounds (I only used 3 or for 1 think, and mostly changed between songs). For the guitar pedalboard, I didn't really tap dance much either. About 2-3 patches per song and that's it.

The real challenge was the actual playing. Trying to play the auxiliary keyboard parts with the Roland and KMs while playing guitar. But I've got a massive hero worship for Rush to get that down pat, so all good. At one point I did the whole Immortal Guardian shtick. :lol: Thankfully it was only for one song.

I probably should've made one on the night considering it surprisingly didn't take long to set up (the keyboards took longer than the pedals). But unfortunately it totally didn't cross my mind. :lol: I still haven't disassembled the rig so I might chuck some 1 min sound runs on IG or something.

I recently did a concert as a musical director for a gospel band. But I was also playing both guitar and keyboards. As there was no backing track used, I had to figure out a way to be able to multi-task a la Geddy Lee style. So became the biggest rig I ever assembled:

Cheers fellas. :cheers:

Unfortunately, no, I don't have clips of the rig, and I've actually started disassembling it. :lol: I have to refine my larger pedalboard ready for preproduction for my next album so I'll rebuild another dual board that utilizes the Boss Synth and Fishman.

I do add short clips of some of my gear on IG, and I'm trying to add more whenever I can squeeze time in. I do need to properly utilize my tube and SC profiles, maybe when my next album comes out.

Super neat & tidy Jeff, but where's the Metal Zone? :scratch:
You know, I kinda want to get one for nostalgia's sake. It was my first "real" distortion pedal, and when I was young and naive, I thought it was awesome. :lol: I wouldn't mind another, and then having someone mod it.

But in the end, you don't need a Metal Zone for Foghat tone. :D

Dang, that's quite impressive. Both in the selection of pedals and the implementation.
Did you put that together yourself?
Nope. The owner of the shop I work for did it. He does lots of pedalboards and racks for local area bands.

I have a few bass sessions coming up for a few days. There's not much need for effects that I normally use, so I broke it down to the barest essentials on this pedalboard. I feel so naked. :lol:

Once I'm done, I'll be dismantling the tiny rig and finally start refining my full bass pedalboard.

I have a few more on my list for phase two (Wampler Ego and Tumnus and Possibly A Dracarys, Polytune mini and some sort of EQ)
I really dig the Rockboard

Very neat. Don't you find the cut ends of the zip ties catch your hands when coiling up the snake though?
