    Funny...I'm a blues player, but every once in a while I like playing with toys.

    My "stay at home rig"

    Dusky Electronics - Octa-Fuzz - don't use the fuzz (Nasty Sounding .... use octave with Dirty Shirley)
    Analog Man - Envelope Filter ... If I get Lazy and don't want to use wah
    MXR - Script Phaser - every once in a while you have to Van Halen! ...lol
    Snark - Floor Tuner - If you can'y see the letters you have to be blind.....biggest display

    Underneath the pedal-board - Truetone - Buffer (see 2nd pic) ... helps to keep your tone in tact.

    JHS - 3 Series Delay - Great delay for the money...recently replaced my DD3
    MXR - Bucket Brigade Chorus
    Freidman - Dirty Shirley Overdrive/Distortion
    Seymour Duncan 805 - Overdrive

    Dunlop - Craybaby 535Q

    Isolated Power - Voodoo Labs
    Pedal Board _ Accel Audio

    Images aren't showing, and right-clicking Open Image In New Tab just goes to a Google sign in page.

    Maybe a permissions issue? You see them because you have permission but no one else can see them.

    I can't see the pictures but I like your thinking with octafuzz. I also use clean octave with fuzz all the way down into overdrive channel of my Boogie. Different octafuzz tho, I'm using Kingtone Octaland Mini. Vintage character with such a great tracking.

    I'm looking forward to see the pictures, bud

    It is with me. I'm on the final board number 4 this year. First one ever with no overdrives (not to count the octaland mentioned earlier) ;)

    Pedalboards are great things - mine doesn't change often, but at the same time, it never seems to be finished. ;)

    There’s always a cable that needs tidying!:p

    Sorry Les, a cheap shot I know, but I judge you by my own level of OCD!;)

    No worries! Not in the least bit offended.

    For me, moving or changing a pedal also means having to order new custom length soldered cables with traditional plugs, because I find they last forever. The solderless kind were great for a short time, and then would crap out at inopportune moments. Like when clients were over!

    There are newer systems on the market than the one I used for years, but by the time these came out I'd made myself happy with soldered, traditional plugs and haven't had a single failure in the past who-knows-how-many years.

    So for me it's not so much cable tidying as cable ordering and installing.

    I always order a certain type of plug in s certain finish. They screwed up my most recent order, and sent the right cable, right plugs, wrong finish, so now everything doesn't 100% match. Anyone got a violin to play a sad melody?

    In former times, this would have driven me mad, so I'd have returned them and had the company send me the right finish. This time, I decided to live with it and not bother the good folks who make my cables up, have to wait for the shipping round-trip, etc. I just got on with it and made the changes.

    My wife said, "Who are you? Where did Les go?", when I told her about it.

    Thus my board is no longer 100% OCD-approved. I've been booted out of OCD Village and made to live amongst the sane people! :(

    On the other hand, weeks later I noticed that the world did not end. Go figure!

    Hey you’re the guy that encouraged me not to paint my homemade board a daft colour and for that I am forever grateful :D

    Wait, I actually gave someone sensible advice?

    I sure hope I at least advised using NOS paint...
