Giggity Giggity, alright.
Feels like I was just here (I was!) but I have new toys I want to show off! Got my Black Friday-discounted Barber Gain Changer SR in the mail today and boy howdy does it sound good. Plays real nice on its own, goosed by the Timmy or saturating the Direct Drive. And because it’s a Barber kinda of day, I swapped my Animals Pedal Fishing fuzz out for the Barber Trifecta which had been on the bench for a while.
I also got an MXR Phase 95 a little while ago to replace my venerable Phase 90 - until tthen the longest-serving pedal on my board - and love it; all the phase tones I could want in a tiny yet usable footprint. In the same transaction I got an Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini and just didn’t like it. Definitely prefer my overdrives more open-sounding, like the Timmy and Gain Changer.
Also picked up a cheap Boss BC-2 Combo Drive because I enjoyed the amp-in-a-box experience of the DLS and wanted something Vox-y. It’s okay, not amazing. Gets me in the ballpark well enough. I moved both of those off my main board and onto a satellite board with some other utility pedals that don’t go to jams or anything. I regard them more as amp simulators than distortion pedals so they’re hooked up right before the amp input.
And got a few FIX Pedalboards risers to help with board ergonomics and fitting mini pedals over the slots in the Pedaltrain where they’d otherwise fall through. Efficiency!

Oh and I have a few mini pedals (Blues Mood, Blues Crab, Mosky SHO) on the way but I won't bother you with them unless they somehow make it onto my board...
Chrome waves I think you may have a problem?
Nothing terribly exciting, ditched the EP boost and Chorus and added some fuzzy goodness
Well hopefully this is the last config for this BS. All the sleazy dirt pedals are in one loop and can fight it out between themselves until needed and I have a clean line into a 57 Custom Deluxe which doesn't need pedals anyway.
Starting 2020 with this. The Broadcast AP is super great, sounds better than the Dual IMO. I replaced the Flint and Nemesis with the Collider, and I'm very happy with it.
The gray pedal on the right is a Farm Mourning Dove, a great take on a silicon Tone Bender.

Well, day off work and 70+cm of snow with wind gusts of 140km/h forecasted for today lead to this
