Bass player, with the odd foot switch that triggers the dirty channel for my Orange guitar amp that my Les Paul runs through. Not much to see here. I guess I'm a minimalist.

The NUX Mod Core Deluxe had an exceptional Stereo Rotary effect but had been relegated to use with my small tube amp because the algorithm in the NUX MG-30 seems to be the same/just as good for my purposes.

I might have 2 or 3 pedals plugged in at most...
How much noise do you guys get with these huge pedalboards? Are there some tricks to keeping them quiet, besides noise gates? I hate noise gates...

A little bit of noise. Most of my noise comes from the fuzz bender. I love the pedal otherwise though.

I keep my wires and cables pretty neat under the board.

Outside of the hiss from high gain a lot of noise in a pedal board can be eliminated with a good power supply. There is a noticeable difference to me when using a few pedals with wall wart power supplies vs one of my board power supplies.

I have a Caline P/S that I've had no noise issues with and  now had for about 3 years. My home music room has a lot of things going on that could cause noise with a ceiling fan, monitors, and PC. It has a couple of 9-12-18v variable outputs and enough juice for my modeler.  You don't have to spend a lot to get a lot in a nice quiet P/S anymore.

I need to try Caline some time soon. You seem to have had good luck with them from what I recall in other posts.

I have my board torn apart to eventually reconfigure and I toy with the idea of once I figure out my next lay out, make a budget friendly version. Either that or I may do a full DIY clone board for fun.

If i was more electrical engineering inclined a simple foot switch upgrade would have made their Klon Centaur clone (Pegasus) as good as a Klon. I upgraded to that ODR-Mini which really agrees with my rig and playing.

The worst offender for me, is lighting on dimming controls.
Is there a power conditioner that shields against it; eliminating, or at least, suppressing it some? I already plug everything into a 90s Furman PL-Plus...
I'm an electrician; running a dedicated circuit wouldn't be the worst thing, if that would help. I just hate doing work at home.

Here is mine
Bottom row is what I use most of the time. Top row is stuff that gets rotated  around. A/B box is kinda in the works.
The GT-500 has nice thick mids, I like a lot for slide/lap steel stuff

I run a Morley wah directly into a Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister 40 which I mike into a macbook through a Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 audio interface. I control the HKs onboard effects wirelessly with an ipad and the HK app to dial up my tone and then tweak it further with the Apple logic pro effects. It ends up sounding better than any of my pedals.

How do you like the MOSFET Fulldrive 2? I just bought one of the older "Comp Cut" ones that I have yet to try out.

Not that I really needed it, but I had been looking at them for quite a while and found a deal that was too good to pass up.

Fractal FM9 for live use.  I have a few individual pedals that I like but the all in one box solution has been it for the last 7 years or so.

Pedals?  Who uses pedals?  Pfffffttttt... My Boss Katana Artist (with GA-FC controller) does everything I need.  Download BTS (Boss Tone Studio), the required Win 10 USB drivers, etc... and your mind will get blown, as you can quite literally click on, program and tweak, save, etc... something like 500 various pedals from Boss, MXR, Electro Harmonix, ProCo Rat, etc.. etc...  Edit: Okay, okay, so I have a Dunlop Cry Baby Wah plugged in.  That's only because I prefer to manually rock the wah myself, versus an auto-wah sound.

I use the Airstep Katana controller with my 50 MKII. I allows me to use my the Katana Librarian editor app via Bluetooth to my phone; I think Librarian is a better editor than BTS...
It also allows on/off toggling of boosts and effects and scroll between the 3 boosts and effects I assign to the patch.
As far as wahs, I use a Mission Engineering expression pedal and use one of the several wahs available in the app. When not using the wah on a patch, I can assign any parameter to it and set it's min/max thresholds; usually the reverb level or boost gain.

The MG-30, instead of having 200 pedals that are only marginally different variations of the usual pedals, has some of NUX's more recent pedals like the Steel Singer drive (not actually a copy of Vertex' SSS though it looks like it) and the Duo Time dual delay.  I also found recently there's a good Flanger/Chorus combo similar to the EHX Electric Mistress if feel compelled to play The Police.

Someone did a video where they opened up an Amazon Basics overdrive pedal and found that it was actually a rebranded Nux.

So, if you like Nux, keep an eye out for an Amazon Basics equivalent.

Cheap On-Stage board with a Mooer micro power supply.

Home made junction box that let's me use the fx loop, or run my time based effects in to the front of the amp, depending on where I plug it in.

Home made fuzz based off the Roland Bee Baa just replaced my Rat on this board

Sadly, I have no pedals. I sold all of them after a divorce.

I have some effects on a little Fender 20amp for the guitar, but it's basic stuff and amp modeling.

My next thing for the guitar is a RC 600 loop station. It has a lot of effects onboard, as well as drum kits etc.

I don't play through anything on my bass other than the amp.

Traded this for two cheap(er) guitars. Gonna sell my Boss Katana MK II Artist and just stick w/ my Peavey Classic 50+the pedal board.

The Plethora is neat and way more quickly user friendly than jacking around with an app+computer+plugging into the Katana.

I've got the mini one on my bass pedalboard. Eight 9v outputs and two 18v
Is pretty versatile given it's price and size.

I have the voodoo labs on my guitar pedalboard. It doesn't have any more outputs,
But they are are all isolated, and you have the option of using split cords and switching
To accommodate oddball voltages and current requirements. A handy thing if you
Switch out pedals frequently.

I have the benefit of getting into guitar late, so all I have is a helix and it's more than what I'll ever need. For home practice I have a Yamaha THR30II with an airstep foot controller, also awesome.
