Got a new one under the tree this morning. Gotta make room on my big board now
Re the Flashback toneprints. You can make and save your own using the toneprint editor (free software). However, they cannot be shared.
i've tentatively retired my blackboard stealth pedalboard, which has been my gigging board for most of my tenure in my current band, mainly for two reasons:
1) lately i'm finding i've slimmed down my use of effects, especially in the band. there are a couple of pedals that have basically just been sitting idle for some time, and i haven't felt the urge to replace them with something else.
2) while the board itself isn't too cumbersome, when it is packed in its case for travel, it's quite bulky and heavy.
so i've swapped the stealth with my pedaltrain jr. which i'd used at home up to this point. with the addition of @rmfroyd 's floridian fx 1590g pedals, i was able to put together a hopefully more manageable and efficient setup that retains the effects i do use regularly.
amt wh-1 "japanese girl" wah>
floridian fx major tom tremolo>
floridian fx call of cthulhu fuzz>
isp decimator ii>
ernie ball volume jr [tuner out to polytune noir]>
boss dm-2w waza craft delay>
electro harmonix holy grail plus reverb>
this still leaves enough room for my amp footswitch, on the side of which is attached my tc helicon mic mechanic
everything is powered by a voodoo labs pedal power 2 plus. the mic mechanic's adapter is plugged into the courtesy outlet on the brick
it's been a fairly seamless transition from my ehx worm to the major tom tremolo
the cthulhu fuzz is the wild card of the bunch. up to this point i've basically stuck to one clean tone and one dirt tone provided by my amp. the idea is to use the cthulhu for a lighter/smoother drive sound, but at this time it has no specific task to fulfill.
the ernie ball volume is a space hog compared to my amt volume pedal, but it is far more usable in terms of sweep. the amt is essentially only useful as a mute
i LOVE the sound of my ibanez echo shifter but it does have a large footprint, and i'm prone to nudging the rate slider with my foot when stomping it. the boss does a pretty good job capturing the same sound. it is however VERY touchy - the slightest adjustments make a world of difference. i'm not sure i've found THE sweet spot yet, but i'm close.
it is a little bit of a challenge getting used to the new arrangement as far as my foot movements. i'd gotten to the point where i pretty much didn't ever have to look down at my old board from sheer muscle memory. last night was my third band practice with the new board, and it's getting better.
the stealth has taken the pedaltrain's former spot on the home rig. i cleaned it up as best i could and am happy with its current layout.

I don't actually have a board but here's my meager collection I make noise with in the back bedroom/workshop of the dead.
hof reverb, cheap delay, THE RAT, ehx pitch shifter, mini crybaby.
I have a Donner looper pedal around here somewhere too.
My pedalboard does everything for me so it's rather extensive, but I finally finished it minus one killer octave fuzz I have on the way...
I don't think there is room for one more killer pedal!
Here is current pedalboard today....may be different tomorrow or soon after.
Top Row: BBE Sonic Stomp - Digitech Polara Reverb - Wampler Faux Tape Echo - Digitech Ventura Vibe - Boss TR-2 Tremolo - Wampler Ego Compressor
Mid Row: Wampler Tumnus - One Control Anodized Brown Distortion - Xotic SL Drive - Xotic Soul Driven - Love/Hermida Dover Drive - EHx HumDebugger
Bottom Row: TCE PolyTune - Mad Professor Mighty Red Distortion - Gold Timmy - VFE Dark Horse Distortion - Skreddy ScrewDriver Mini - Keeley Super Phat Mod OD
It changes less and less.....but I still fall out of love with pedals often.
I'll find a way . But yeah very happy with this rig. Everything works really well together and the ISP keeps everything nice and quiet. A few excrare ones on this board too so
Thanks! I have this baby incoming, got an amazing deal on a brand new one on Ebay (less than half of retail). Going to have to figure out a way to make it fit, but I've been considering swapping my Paul Gilbert flanger for something a little smaller to make some more space. I don't use flange enough to warrant it taking up 2.5 spaces on the board!
Ehx stereo electric mistress ftw!

Never been a big fan of EHX stuff to be honest, always felt there was better stuff out there for the same money (at least for what I like!).
Probably going to end up with a Subdecay Starlight flanger. We'll see .
Here is the current iteration of my pedal board with my Floridian Lonely Housewife added. It should stay this way for a while.....
I love the Retro Channel Fuzz.....wish I still had one!
Current and mostly permanent setup:
Guitar>loop master switcher:
A>spark>Cantrell wah>Korg pitch black tuner>orange rockerverb mkiii.
Rockerverb Loop :
MXR microflanger>Floridian FX Darth phaser>Floridian FX Major Tom tremolo>digitech nautilua chorus>TC alter ego delay>digitech Supernatural reverb.
Rockerverb is driving the 12" Eminence Swamp Thang in the Mills Custom hatchet amp, as well as the 12" Hellatone 60L in the standalone Mills Custom Thiele cab.
Kemper is hooked up to the Atomic CLR active wedge.

A little late to the pedal party, but here are mine.
Looks good. How do you like the gfs pedals? They are made by Joyo, right?
Thanks. I've tried a lot of the GFS pedals and I like them. I read they are re branded Biyang pedals; built like tanks. I find them very versatile. Wish I still had the Brownie pedal though.
Your right, it is Biyang. I had my manufacturers mixed up.
Just snapped this pic of my small board:
Didn't I just do this?....but now with wah and volume pedals
