1590A 1+1 Pedalboard
« on: May 22, 2019, 06:42:39 AM »
Finally finished up my complete pedal board filled with my 1590A 1+1 pedals.  This started earlier this year with the layout for the Micro Chorus and I just expanded on that and said "I wonder if I could make a whole board with just one knob (and one switch) pedals."  And here is the result of that...

Board itself is made out of finger jointed mahogany, with strips of dual-lock to hold everything in place.

All pedals have soft touch relay bypass.  Signal chain is:
I/O box
Siphon Envelope Filter (Micro V)
Medium Compressor (Dyna-Comp)
Swine Boost (Rangemaster)
Muscle OD (Dumble-like OD)
Straight Jacket OD (Marshall-like OD)
Spook Distortion (One-knob Big Muff)
Elevation Fuzz (Kay F-1 Fuzz)
Superstition Boost (One-knob Klon)
Muzzle Noise Gate (MXR Noise Gate)
MV-68 Vibe (Uni-vibe)
Rock Bottom Phaser (Small Stone)
Spectator Chorus (Micro Chorus)
Jormungandr Delay (One-knob Delay)
Reverb_1 Reverb (One-knob FV-1 Reverb)
Epicenter Tremolo (One-knob Tremolo)

That looks amazing. How about noise ratio? Since there is a lot pedals in line..

So neat too, your a one-knob kinda guy then

I wouldn't say I'm a total one-knob guy, I just wanted the challenge to see if I could make a functional pedalboard with one-knob pedals.

No noise, its really quiet.  Even the gain pedals are really quiet stacked together, the noise gate isn't really needed...

you are a madman Dan!

So you have all 1 knob, and if I'm not mistaken you easily have a board of 1590a 4 knob pedals (maybe thrice over by now). What is next?

Yep, next in line is a board of 4-Knob 1590A's.  I have them all lined up ready to go, just need to make the board and wire them up!

Super cool!  I like how the pedal board matches your amp.

That build is impressive. Very clean and professional. I think if I really had a choice, I would want no knobs. Once I find the sound I want, I don't feel the need to obsessively tweak. A wah is about the only thing that needs adjustment on the fly IMO.
Money may exists in your general areas. Make that pennies precipitate!

The two pedals with the knob and switch reversed are driving me crazy... ;)

But seriously - what dedication. I'm seriously impressed, especially giving the soft touch bypass. Who's did you use?

I knew somebody would mention the two that are off, it does kind of bother me too  ;D

The relay bypass is based off the Coda Effects bypass, and it works really good!
