PostForum Section: Electronics   Posted: 16 Aug 2017 10:02 am   Subject: SKB pedal board
I just bought the SKB 9v powered pedal board. $100 from Sweetwater. I'm using an old speaker stand to raise it. A plastic milk crate would work, too.

Three of my devices don't use 9v, so I have ...

What I love about the Earth Drive is that it doesn't sound like an effect. It sounds like natural guitar amp distortion. In fact, I recently was playing a fairly loud gig with my Milkman, and thought ...

Your setup looks good. You could try putting the parametric after the overdrive, unless you are using it to eq your un-Drive tone. If you have an fix loop in your amp, run the overdrive and eq in fro ...

Another vote for the Earth Drive. It gives me exactly the tone I like in rock and blues.

This is the effects setup I used today.

Parametric EQ Arrow distortion Arrow phaser Arrow delay.

Everything is true bypass, and I rarely use more than one effect at a time.

The engine of a 747 isn't the sound I'm looking for. More like Waylon Jennings. Laughing

Maybe b0b you could give a classic example and I'll see if I can get in the ballpark and sound like a pedal steel rather than Hawaiian.

I often use a phaser or a Rotosphere. I'm going to add a delay pedal. Which should go first in the signal chain?

I've always put the phaser or Rotosphere last. Would it mess up the effect to hav ...

With the right tuning, the main challenge is learning to slant the bar - an essential technique in any case. To my ears, the "right tuning" needs to have a high G# string. That string really ...

I don't think you're disagreeing with me at all, Stefan. You're not using the low B in your video, and all of things you're doing would sound the same if you had a high F# on your 1st string. I use t ...

The Roy Wiggins E13th was the direct precursor to the pedal steel E9th tuning:

The first pedal made the C# string unnecessary, so they added the middle F# in the early 8-strin ...

Maybe if steel players learned to play more styles and techniques, instead of just being the "country sound effect", they would be included in more of the "modern" country bands.

I actually prefer playing rhythm parts to soloing. For me, contributing to the groove is much more satisfying than soloing. Your mileage may vary.

The fewer musicians in the band, the more you have to play. It's as simple as that. In a 6- or 7- piece band, you can sit on your hands until the leader points at you. In a quartet, things can get aw ...
