Those BB pre amps are great!  I have a BB+ and an AC+, a Wampler Black '65, and a Diamond Fireburst for high gain distortion.

Agreed. I think the one I want is the BB+, if that's the red-ish one.

Here are my drive boxes (minus the Black 65, which was in my chain.)  The big gray one is the Neo Ventilator, the Leslie Speaker simulator.

Just FYI, the BB+ is a beast!  Both channels are hotter than the original BB pre amp.  Channel A (right side) of the AC+ is more like the original BB pre amp, especially with the comp button pressed in.

Sorry the pic is blurry, but you can definitely tell what is what.

Ok, so here's the Black '65 along with the T.C. Electronic Alter Ego Delay.

The one I am familiar with is the smaller one which my friend has and he also has the AC+.

He has the BB pre amp.  They make the original BB, they also make one with a mids boost.  There is also an Andy Timmons signature model.  You can't go wrong with any of them.   Like I said before, if you like the sound of your friend's pedal, the BB+ isn't really going to give you that. The AC+ can give you that sound , though.

All I have right now is Line 6 Pod Farm and a Champion 600 that I modded (not sure if that's the right word for it, none of the original parts in the preamp section are still there) and replaced the tubes with Tungsols.

Hi there, cool stuff all you people!

Over the years i became totally fed up moving around big racks and speakercabs, so i made myself a mini rig with most of the essentials for rush tone, but very light weight.

Posted Image

The pedalboard: chi wah wah > xotic bb+ > sonic research turbo tuner > byoc trem > byoc phase90 > coolcat chorus  > tc flashback. All pedals except the wah were rehoused for reducing amount of total size. Now, the pedalboard nicely fits in the back of my amp: groove tubes soul-o-single 1x12.

Pretty good idea.

Thx Rushaholic!

Xotic pedals are great! The sp compressor is on my to do list!

The idea for rehousing was about saving space, but also about needing as less as possible patchcable. Each cable incl it's 2 plugs sucks a little out of your tone. The pedal on this picture contains bb+ > tb-loop > tc flashback. This way i keep my signal a little cleaner and healthier.

Yep!  I saw rushfanNlv's post where you said you had rehoused a few pedals.  I see the BB+ controls on the right.  I see the controls for the Flashback, as well (I have the TC Electronic Alter Ego, which is a Flashback with two different modes that replace the lo-fi and dynamic modes on the Flashback.)  What is the 4th switch for?  Did it just come with the housing?

BTW - I also have a Music Man guitar, a John Petrucci 6 string with a piezo bridge.

That is a great guitar, if i had to choose just one guitar for everything, that might be it! :)

The fourth switch on the pedal (third actually ;)...) is a tb-loop. It allows me to insert my tuner and modulation box (trem/phase/chorus) in and out the signal chain.
