Yamaha has actually produced quite a few REAL stompboxes: ((i)) ((i)) ((i))

Here's my five piece "10M II"collection: :D

Like most other brands, they are wired form right to left:
GE-10M II Graphic Equalizer
CO-10M II Compressor
OD-10M II Over Drive
DI-10M II Distortion
FL-10M II Flanger

You're most velcome to show, tell or ask about ANY sound effects, ALSO NON Yamaha. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Control switches for amps, instruments and effect boards.

Unread postby Buzzard » Fri Aug 07, 2015 3:54 pm

For controlling amp channels, effects, presets, line inputs/outputs, volume, tone, wah ................. whatever.
There's a wide variety of foot controllers from simple switches to advanced midi controllers.
Some are brilliant for switching between effect loops, instruments or amps ......... it's all just a step away. ((i)) :D :wink: :idea:

Other stompboxes and FX boards.

Unread postby Buzzard » Fri Aug 07, 2015 3:55 pm

Work in Progress. :roll:

NON Yamaha stompboxes and FX boards ((i))

My all time favorite is the simple "one trick pony" stompbox. No frills , no fuss. 8)
The multi boards are FAB , but since they all have to be tweaked differently, I seldom bother to get seriously aquainted ........ :/:
......... after all, I just want to play my guitars instead og spending hours getting used to "complicated equipment" :!:

My first Boss pedal box from the 80's , bought one at a time as I could afford them. :wink:
Image

another box of mostly vintage Boss pedals.
Image

one of my favorites: a Behringer box full og Boss "dirt" pedals. I usually find the pedal needed, take it out and put it together with other effects.
Image

Boss bass pedalds not connected at the moment, I rarely use them. My bass playing usually goes through a Yamaha THR amp.
Image

The Behringer pedal Collection, dead cheap and LOADS of bang for the buck. ((i))
Image
The 5 pedals outside the box replace those just in front for HEAVIER sound.
Here is a Behringer stomp box comparison list by Toneking: http://thetoneking.com/wp/behringer-sto ... son-chart/

:idea: Despite what you hear and read about Behringer pedals, they really are a bang for the buck, and close to the real deal. :idea:
Here's a fair shootout:


For Years I've read topics about keyboard players having issues with their guitar sounds on the synths.

Guitar players had little or no chance of emulating a decent organ sound.

I've tried (very hard) and came up with something that could sound a bit like an organ:
Boss FW-10 . a slight overdrive for longer sustain and wah as a tone control.
Boss OC-3 . to get two lower octaves.
Boss PS-5 . to get one higher octave.
Boss PH-3 . to get a swirly Leslie simulation.
Boss BF-3 . more swirl.
Boss DD-6 . for room echo.

This box was an expensive effort, and not everyone guessed that my work/noise was supposed to be the sound of an organ. :oops:
Image
Actually, I wasn't too chuffed either, even though it was the best I could come up with. Today most of the effects are sold.

Then I found this clip on youtube: ((i)) ((i)) ((i)) ((i)) ((i))


The video is cool, and the competent guitar player makes it sound spot on. ((i))
So how will it sound with a lesser guitarist ? ........ pretty good actually :)
Even with my limited guitar skills, I can take anyone to church, jazzclubs or back to the 60's.

here's mine:
Image

Sounding SO CLOSE to the real thing, it's quite usefull , for me it's mostly a WONDERFUL TOY.
Through a clean or slightly overdriven amp, this box really sounds astonishing.
This pedal is the one that has put the largest smile on my face for years, absolutely good fun.

8 halfrack Boss units, cool toy box. Fun to collect, but sold it again.
Image
fairly simple wiring:
Image

this is the Boss half and fullrack LIVING HELL probably capable of producing any sound ever needed, but not in this lifetime. :/:
Image

closeup:
Image

basic wiring without the midi and extra control pedals.
Image

Line6 POD XT LIVE , mostly used with Line6 Variax guitars.
Image

The small, affordable and easy to use Behringer XV-Amp.
Image
It looks like a fragile plastic unit, but so far I havn't managed to break it. :wink:

Fast and heavy Yamaha XS-1100 pedals. 1000 to 7500 Hz.

Homemade stompboxes , amps and stuff

Unread postby Buzzard » Fri Sep 11, 2015 5:44 pm

:oops: We have all been there and done that :!: :?:

The homemade gear based on kits or diagrams from guitar magazines, fun and educational, but hardly as good as the ready made ones. :roll:

top: AC power outlet noise supressor , bottom: 3 homemade stompboxes.
Image

Homemade combo: complete preamp , poweramp , powersupply and tremolo effect, built in the late 80's, taken apart, and this is what's left:
Image

I highly recommend that you give it a shot at one time, but unless you turn out to be an electronic genius, there's more important things to do. :/:

Man, you got a LOT of pedals!!! (Y)


Well, that was stating the obvious, I guess.. :wink:

Oh yeah, and the Novation KS4 is now hooked up again(even though it has to rest vertically when not used)!

Almost all my gear is home built. Amps are all valve. Two 5 watt combos, one Marshall 18 watt clone, a self designed 6L6 SE with two mixable preamps, a one watt Russian mini valve self split. Valve overdrive pedal, some germanium tubescreamers, spring reverb unit which is valve driven of course. Not home brew is my Cry Baby which is only slightly modded. And not at all modded is my recently acquired Digitech Trio which is a wee gem for someone like me playing at home by myself.

Hidden in the cupboard to use when no one is looking is a well used Digitech RP80 which has a headphone socket so serves well for quiet sessions. It is also useful for recording backing tracks.

The reason that I started building my own stuff was the background noise in equipment at my price level as soon as you have any amount of gain.

I get a great thrill from playing through my own gear. How it would stand up to gigging is anyone's guess. But my own best guess is that it would suffer badly from hard use. That is one major advantage that properly manufactured gear has.
