  • Pedalboard Build

    I'm looking about building an acoustic pedalboard. I want to use a Venue DI as the basis of the build. I'll put a few pedals in the FX loop (chorus, verb, maybe delay) and I want to put an LR Baggs Align Series Session pedal in the loop as well. Where would be best to put it? Early? Later? I know I normally like gain (like OD and distortion) early, but this is 'saturation' and compression. I feel like maybe I want it last so that all the FX ahead of it get the saturation and compression treatment. Thoughts from anyone who's had success with this combo?

    Hey KeefX,
    There are definitely a few ways to use the Session with something like the Venue (for EQ). I personally prefer to run the Session first, or as early as possible. Then I can use EQ later in the chain to balance out the signal or cut any remaining problem frequencies. Some people like to EQ first and then go into the Session for the "cherry on top".

    For me, the saturation is best used early on, especially if you are using "wet" effects like reverb, chorus or delay. The saturation early on adds depth and texture to the guitar, letting the other effects do what they do best.

      Excellent. Thanks for your insight.
      Given that, where does the Venue's EQ appear in the chain? Before or after the FX loop?

        The EQ is before the FX Loop on the Venue.

            The more effect pedals you use, the more you need a pedal board. Even the most basic unpowered board can provide a useful platform to hold your pedals securely, provide cable management and keep everything from sliding around onstage.

              The thinking behind the modular approach was to build a small pedalboard frame with a fixed but accessible power supply and a removable top section shareit apk.
