PEDALBOARD RIG-RUN-DOWN
NOVEMBER 2012
INPUTS
The Guitar Signal can enter the pedalboard in two ways;
1.
via a guitar cable to an INPUT Neutrik ¼” combo Jack on the right-hand side of the pedalboard, or
2.
via a LINE6 G30 Wireless Receiver
Those two options are switched using a custom manual A/B switch attached to the Input side of the G30 Wireless
receiver. From the output of the A/B Switch, the Guitar signal is sampled by the INPUT half of an ISP Decimator
G-String Noise Gate.

WAH
The GUITAR OUT of the ISP Decimator G-String Noise Gate carries on to the CAE (Custom Audio Electronics) Wah
pedal that is mounted to a G-LAB True Bypass Wah Pad (TBWP) that places the Wah in the signal-path when
pressure is placed on the Wah Pedal. (Since the TBWP is switching the Wah Pedal On/Off, the CAE Wah has been
forced “ON” using a plastic washer on the Wah’s On/Off switch.) The CAE Wah also has a modification for external
access to the “Q” potentiometers for the Yellow and Red Fasel Inductor.

PRE-AMP EFFECTS SWITCHER
The output of the TBWP feeds a G-LAB M4L MIDI 4-Loop Switcher that can true-bypass switch the following
effects, in various combinations, into the signal-path via MIDI control Changes emanating from the G-LAB GSC-2
Effects Controller… [Here are the Pre effects: Guyatone MOm5 Octaver, Voodoo Lab Proctavia, Voodoo Lab
Superfuzz and MXR QZ-1 CRYBABY Q-ZONE Filter.] The last three effects are mounted to a hinged panel that when
lifted exposes the controls for three other effects explained below.

G-LAB (M4L) MIDI LOOPER
PREAMP
The above four effects precede the MESA-BOOGIE V-Twin Tube Preamp pedal where the main “tones” are
generated. When the V-Twin is in bypass, the clean tone is generated in the guitar amp which is set to the clean
channel. The other two V-Twin Switchable modes are CRUNCH and BURN which add various increasing amounts of
overdrive to the Guitar Signal. A Plexiglas Cover keeps the control settings from inadvertent changes.

POST-AMP EFFECTS SWITCHER
The output of the V-Twin Preamp is connected to the G-LAB GSC-2 Effects Controller Input. The GSC-2 has an
additional six True Bypass Loops that can be accessed in any ON-combination of the following six effects via GSC-2
Presets… [MXR EVH PHASE 90 PHASE SHIFTER, Voodoo Lab SPARKLE DRIVE, Voodoo Lab MICRO VIBE and BOSS
BF-2 FLANGER (Japan), CE-3 STEREO CHORUS (Korea) and DD-3 DIGITAL DELAY (Japan)]. The last three effects are
hidden under a hinged panel that was referred to above. All of the above Boss effects have been modified so that
they are “ON” when the pedalboard power is turned on.

The GSC-2 can also send MIDI Program and/or MIDI Control Changes to 3 external devices…the GSC-2 controls the
above M4L 4-Loop Switcher in this way, via MIDI, to switch in the four effects preceding the V-Twin Preamp. There
are also four Amp Control jacks on the GSC-2… two of those Amp Control outputs are connected to the V-Twin
Preamp to automatically switch V-Twin channels (BYPASS and CRUNCH/BURN) on a preset basis. The TUNER
Output of the GSC-2 feeds the input of a Sonic Research ST-200 Strobe Tuner and the final OUTPUT of the GSC-2
feeds the DECIMATOR half of the ISP Decimator G-String Noise Gate.

G-LAB (GSC-2) EFFECTS CONTROLLER
The DECIMATOR half of the ISP Decimator G-String Noise Gate at this point will squelch any hum/hiss/noise from
all of the effects mentioned to this point based on the Decimator G-String threshold setting and the presence of
the sampled guitar signal from the INPUT half of the ISP Decimator G-String Noise Gate as mentioned above. The
ISP DECIMATOR G-STRING has been repackaged into a Hammond 1590B Diecast box with a footswitch, LED and
threshold control.
The GSC-2 has a WAH PAD input that allows connection to the G-LAB True Bypass Wah Pad SENSE output allowing
a special GSC-2 MODE where other effects are added when the WAH mounted to the TBWP is activated. This
allows you to switch a preamp channel or add a Boost or other effect when you activate your WAH Pedal via the
TBWP.

FINAL BOOST and DIGITAL DELAY
The last effect before the Guitar Amps is the TECH21 Boost DLA Digital Delay pedal with TAP TEMPO, DELAY TRAILS
and separate CLEAN BOOST. The Boost DLA is not True Bypass, but, it allows the delay to trail when it is switched
out after a guitar solo; so there is no abrupt delay cut-off. The Boost DLA is used for solos to get delay, delay trails,
and 6-9dB of clean Boost when kicked in. The Boost DLA is modified with a control jack to allow connection to one
of the GSC-2 Amp Control outputs so that the Boost DLA can be switched “On” via GSC-2 presets. The Stock Boost
DLA Bypass switch is Momentary and the new control jack would normally be wired in parallel with the stock
Bypass switch requiring a momentary “pulse” to switch the delay on/off, but, since the GSC-2 Amp Control Outputs
can be set to Latch OR Momentary, and we are already using two of the Amp Control outputs in Latch MODE to
control the V-Twin Preamp channels, there is a requirement for a small circuit board in the Boost DLA battery
compartment, (installed between the added Boost DLA control Jack and the actual Boost DLA Bypass foot-switch),
that converts a Latch “pulse” from the GSC-2 to a Momentary “pulse” to allow switching of the Boost DLA on/off.
Since the Boost DLA’s BYPASS switch is still functional the Boost DLA can be switched in/out anytime without
changing GSC-2 presets.

The output of the Boost DLA is cabled to an OUTPUT Neutrik ¼” combo Jack on the right-hand side of the
pedalboard and feeds one or two MESA-BOOGIE 5:25 Express Tube Guitar Amps set to the Clean Channel. The
pedalboard OUTPUT is “split” using a Palmer PGA-03 “Y”-BOX Guitar Splitter which isolates the amplifier grounds
to ensure that there is no hum in the signal.

PACKAGING
All of the system components are mounted on a Furman SPB-SC Stereo FX Pedal-board/ Power Conditioner. The
SPB-SC is modified with an internal 12 VAC Transformer for two LITTLITE 12G BNC Gooseneck Lights and another
internal 12 VAC Transformer that feed power to the MESA-BOOGIE V-TWIN Preamp.
EFFECTS POWER
The SPB-SC Pedalboard has eight isolated 9 VDC outputs that feed various effects and the G-LAB GSC-2 has an
additional six DC outputs in 2 isolated groups. One of the isolated group’s outputs exclusively feed the Voodoo Lab
Proctavia as it uses a positive ground and must be isolated from the other effects. A separate LINE6 9 VDC power
supply feeds the Guyatone Micro Octaver.
OTHER OUTPUTS
The MESA-BOOGIE V-Twin preamp has a compensated recording output that has been cabled to a left-hand ¼”
jack labeled REC (RECORDING) that is handy for recording ghost guitar tracks in the studio. Another ¼” left-hand
jack labeled PZ (PIEZO) is fed from the RING of the INPUT Neutrik ¼” combo Jack on the right-hand side of the
pedalboard and caries a PIEZO Guitar Signal only when a Stereo cable is inserted between that INPUT and a Guitar
with a Graph Tech Acousti-phonic Preamp installed. That PIEZO signal can then be modeled using a Fishman Aura
16 imaging pedal and fed to the P.A. via a Radial J48 Direct Box.
