  • NPBD: Mini Board



    This one is built on an old school Holeyboard courtesy of stratguy23

    Signal chain is: Pitchblack -> Pickup Booster -> Phase 90 -> Maxon OD-9 -> CH-1 -> DD-2, while power is provided by a Visual Sound One Spot.

    It's similar to the board I used with my 2555 years ago, when I only used the lead channel and rolled the volume down for cleans. I could use it with either Jubilee, but it's mostly intended for my Lead 12 Mini Stack. While it's true that these are mostly rejects from my main board, they ended up working well with the Lead 12. I leave the Lead 12 set at the edge of breakup and slam the front end with the OD-9 for essentially a JCM800 tone. The Pickup Booster can be used as a lead boost, or on its own without the OD-9 for a mild breakup. I ended up not liking the CH-1 with my other amps, but it's quiet and sounds pretty good with the Lead 12. The Phase 90 and DD-2 need no explanation.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

        Very functional I could definitely gig with that board. You seem to have everything covered in a neat footprint.

              I really built this board for my Lead 12


              It doesn't have a loop, so I have to run the entire board out front. I likewise don't use the loop in my 2555 because it isn't buffered and sounds pretty lousy with stomp boxes (rack processors sound fine though). I've never tried the loop in the 2525, so I have no idea whether or not the issue(s) were fixed.

              I tried the Phase 90 after the OD-9, but liked it better before. I tend to think of Billy Corgan or Mike McCready when it comes to phase, and they run theirs in front of a distorted amp, Jimmy Page too.

              I have both a DD-2 and long chip DD-3, and the DD-3 is on my big board. This board will seldom (if ever) leave the house, so I'm using the DD-2 here since it honestly looks almost new. When it comes to non-programmable delays these are my favorite since IMO they combine the best elements of both analog and digital sounds. I have the DD-2 set up for a sort of EVH Echoplex sound, but with a bit more definition and punch.

              BITD I bought the CH-1 because it was cheap and quiet (almost zero hiss) when run into the front of an overdriven amp. Once I got my hands on a silver screw CE-2, the CH-1 disappeared into a box for over a decade. I prefer the CE-2 with my Jubilees, but the extra high end sheen of the CH-1 works really well into a dirty amp with the volume rolled down. Did I also mention it's quiet?

              I have a Boss FRV-1 on my big board, but I don't have a reverb here because the Lead 12 just isn't clean enough for it to sound decent. This is a back to basics board that more reflects the school of thought that I came from, rather than the more diverse palette of sounds I tend to prefer now.

                    I know it's solid state, but throw a TS in front and you've got a mini JCM800 that won't leave you for deaf
