Very cool.

I'm building a rack set that's a bit similar to yours, so I'll be looking into the thread from time to time ;)

My setup is (also Gilmour/Floyd fan here):

Guitar (mainly Strat with EMG DG-20) --> Wah (Cry-Baby) --> Buffer --> Rack

Rack: GCX with 8 pedals in loops: Whammy, Demeter Compulator, Tube Screamer, Chandler Tube Driver, BYOC Large Beaver (Muff clone), EHX Small Clone, Boss EQ7, Boss CE-5
From there into my G-Force unit and then out.
Power comes from Voodoo Pedal Plus 2 and Samson PowerBrite PB10.
Expression (volume and whammy and maybe more is done with 2 expression pedals - Ernie Ball)
So it's a lot like your system.

What pedals are you going to be using?

I'm building my own pedals, I have exact trace copies of the circuit boards, i'm going to etch my own boards, and solder the components....

Colorsound power boost 18v version - For this I have copied exactly the circuit board from a version 1 power boost, and I've managed to source all the period correct components including the tropical fish caps. I just need to etch the board.

This is my pcb layout http://www.freestompboxes.org/download/file.php?id=28564

Rams Head big muff - This is going to be copied from the circuit from this web site http://www.kitrae.net/music/Images_Secret_Music_Page/KR_V2_74_no_3_schematic.jpg

Again i'm going to source as best I can vintage correct parts.


Silicon Fuzz Face - This is a direct copy as used by Gilmour at Pompeii.... Again vintage correct parts, so I'll be using carbon comp resistors, etc....


I'm undecided whether to buy an electric mistress or make one.... I have the circuit diagram for a 18v mistress, so may use that. but sourcing the parts is not easy, especially the SAD1024 chip. So I may just buy a clone kit.

My wah already has the reverse wah mod for the seagull effect for echoes.

I may also at some time buy a catlinbread Echorec pedal..... they are brilliant, and a great alternative for a vintage sound delay. Especially for early floyd stuff
