Pedalboards

Not every harp player uses a pedalboard but I find it convenient for the few pedals I do use. Here's the pedalboard I use for nearly every gig. I've gone through a few configurations and this one seems to work best for me:

Pedalboard

It starts with a Pedaltrain Mini pedalboard. Here are all the pedals, numbered per the picture above:

  1. Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus -- the is an excellent pedal power source and has worked great with all sorts of pedal configurations, including 18v pedals, reverse polarity pedals, etc.
  2. Samson Airline Wireless -- This is one of the original Samson UHF guitar wireless systems. I've used this for years and has worked like a champ. I'm not sure what will happen now that the FCC has rearranged the available frequencies. I guess I'll continue to use it until I start getting too much interference or the FCC police show up at my door.
  3. Kinder AFB+ -- When you play with bands that can get pretty loud (and I do) or need to plug into a guitar amp with a lot of gain, this anti-feeback pedal is a lifesaver to allow you to hear yourself on stage. As long as the amp has some cahones, I can turn up just as loud as the guitars. I've seen some discussion group threads about using this pedal with a pedal power supply. Since each power output on the Voodoo power supply is isolated, it's been working perfectly for years. I connect two separate power outputs to the 9v battery connectors inside the pedal. This required a slight mod but it was very easy.
  4. Lone Wolf Harp Delay V2 -- This is the 2nd generation of the Lone Wolf Harp Delay and my real workhorse pedal that's always on. It's the best delay pedal I've tried for harp.
  5. electro-harmonix Micro POG -- This is a polyphonic octave generator that will generate both a sub-octave and an up octave. It produces some really cool horn and organ-like sounds that works great for some songs. I don't use this pedal often but when I do it sounds pretty cool.

 

Okay, I built this pedalboard simply because I could. It had to be done. I put together a bunch of different pedals to see how well they would work with harp. I only used this board a couple of times (and got quite a bit of crap from the other band members). I've since disassembled and used the pedals elsewhere. But it was cool for a while:

Pedalboard

This one uses a Pedaltrain JR pedalboard. This pedalboard is set up so that the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power Plus 2 can be mounted on the underside of the pedalboard. Here are all the pedals:

  1. Samson Airline Wireless -- This is one of the original Samson UHF guitar wireless systems. I've used this for years and has worked like a champ. I'm not sure what will happen now that the FCC has rearranged the available frequencies. I guess I'll continue to use it until I start getting too much interference or the FCC police show up at my door.
  2. Electro-Harmonix micro POG -- This is a polyphonic octave generator that will generate both a sub-octave and an up octave. It produces some really cool horn and organ-like sounds that works great for some songs.
  3. Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble -- This is a versatile chorus pedal that provides a really shimmering sound.
  4. Boss RT-20 Rotary Ensemble -- This is a very cool pedal that can create a variety of rotary effects. When used with either the micro POG or the Chorus, it creates a very cool organ sound. Besides, it's worth having it just for the cool rotary lights.
  5. Roland EV-5 Expression Pedal -- This pedal is attached to the Rotary Ensemble and controls the rotation rate, making it real easy to control the rotary effect.
  6. Lone Wolf Harp Delay -- this is the first generation of the Lone Wolf Harp Delay. I like the V2 a little better, but this is still a great delay pedal for harp.
  7. Lone Wolf Harp Attack -- this is kind of a neat pedal that I don't use much but it can add a little bit of edge to your harp amp. However, I really don't need it with my Mini Meteor amp. However, I can use just my pedal board and plug into the PA or powered speaker. It produces a nice, distorted Champ-like overdriven tube sound without an amp.
