    Setup a BlackBird pedalboard today that I made a trade for last year. My whole goal was to simplify and go with the pedals I need.

    One of my Christmas gifts was a Volto III battery pack, and I installed it today. I had played around with it in other configurations, but it sure works perfect for this board. The Volto II holds a charge an amazingly long time, and I've never exhausted it in up to 5 hours of play time. No more power cords needed!

    Got some playing time on it today, and this combination sounds amazing thru the front end of my Dallas amp.

    That looks dope! Man, I just downsized my board on a whim a few hours before rehearsal. I love not having to bring a lot of stuff.

    I admire your straight forward, simple style, equally as much as your use of paisley.

    Amen! A single load-in trip...that’s the goal.

    Nice! I have the same model board from Black Bird, except mine was a DIY kit. Don't really miss the extra pedals and I do love the easy load-in!

    That's all you need if you know what tone you want, and your guitar and amp have been chosen wisely. I don't use delay and I do use a wah. Otherwise I could gig with what you have.

    Excellent! The nice thing about battery power is that you don't worry about crappy AC cables, and it's always clean power!
