Planning for a good Friday

Recommended Posts

Got the parts,

Got the day off tomorrow,

Got no more excuses ...Ā 

Any bets how many connectorsĀ I solder in placeĀ without firstĀ slidingĀ the screw-on cap onto the cable? šŸ˜Ž

They always looks so tidy before the cables get involved!Ā Ā  If they would "standardize" pedal in/outs a bit we could avoid all this mess and use these!

Thank you! Ā

As a fellow sufferer, I can confide in you thatĀ I was up all night fretting (see what I did there?) about the pre-made Strymon power cables that I couldnā€™tĀ cut to a custom length like the instrument signal cablesĀ ... šŸ™€

Feelin' ya!Ā  Effective, judicious application of zip-ties.Ā  Sometimes we have to work within limitations.

I don't know how I missed this thread, but I'm glad I finally found it. You did some really nice work there, and soldered connections are so much better on a pedal board! One of mine is still solder-less (George L) and I need to remedy that! Thanks for reminding me!!!

The guitar signal goes from mono toĀ stereo after the Strymon Deco, so the wiring gets doubled up after that. TheĀ orange boxes underneath are (Lehle P-Split) signal splitters/isolators that allow me to route the Left and Right stereoĀ signals to my (stereo) amps as well as the (now-isolated) Strymon Iridium amp simulator that feeds to my recording interface. I needed the signals going to be my recording interface to be galvanically (transformer) isolated to eliminate the ground-loop hum I otherwise get when I try to feed my amps and the recording interface at the same time.Ā Ā The Lehle P-SplitsĀ are very cool (and small šŸ‘šŸ»)Ā splitter boxes (built like tanks - made in Germany) that have transformer isolation.Ā

Thought I would also post the wiring diagram(s) in case there is more interest.Ā  I have two different ways that I use my pedal board:

1.Ā  When I'm just playing around to a backing track or whatever, I like to have the delay and reverb effects in the signal chain after the Srymon Iridium amp simulator.Ā  This setup allows me to pipeĀ nice-soundingĀ Iridium-amp-simulatedĀ signals with Delay and Reverb post-amp into my laptop, and play along with headphones. This setup has a very high WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) due to the silence in the house.Ā 

Ignoring the mono compressor and overdrive pedals that are in front of the Deco, the signal routing for that setup looks like this:

2.Ā  When I'm recording (a rare event), I like to move the Iridium further back in the signal chain so I can record both the real amps and the Iridium at the same time with the same effects in the chain, and then mix the different amp sounds to my liking afterward.Ā  That setup has a very low-scoring WAF (which is why it's a rare event) due to the house-filling sound it generates.

The signal chain for that setup looks like this:

Ā 

I'm too cheap to spend the big $$$ on a Boss switcher, so I end up unplugging cables and patching some new ones in to switch back-and-forth between the two setups.
