Let's see your pedalboards!
« on: Time Format »

I'm contemplating building a custom pedalboard, so I could use some ideas.  So....

Let's see your pedalboards!

Guitarbuilder has already has a thread for his; let's share some photos here.

Okay, here goes....I bought this case;


Which you can buy at Rondo music for $50 using this link
http://www.rondomusic.com/pdc410fbk.html

All my cables fit inside the box's lid, I just pile them on top of the pedals.

Contents of the pedalboard include:
Front row: ADA MXC footswitch, Quad switch, Boss V-Wah
Back row: Nady 201 wireless, DOD A/B Box, Ibanez TS-9, Boss TU-2

The MXC and Quad switch are color coded:
Red = Solo / Boost
White = Clean patch
Yellow = Dirty patch
Blue = Delay

I know I've discussed this before, but my Quad switch toggles individual FX in my rack (Boss GX-700).
1: delay
2: solo boost (usually done with the EQ)
3: wet (chorus or modulation)
4: wild card (special FX for specific songs: harmonizer, tremolo, whatever)

The A/B switch simply runs the signal from the dedicated instrument cable (going from the wireless into the wah) to a separate instrument cable. That way, if the wireless battery dies during a song, I hit the A/B button and use the cord instead of my wireless pack.

BTW: The pedals in the back row are on top of small pieces of 3/4" plywood, painted black and covered in velcro

This is my current setup.

Crybaby 95q (Robert Keeley "Mello Wah" mod)
TC Electronic Helix Phase
Black Arts Toneworks Black Forest Overdrive (Colorsound Overdriver Clone)
     This used to be my mainstay, always on. My MP-1 has rendered it a bit useless, but I still keep it on the board.
MXR Analog Chorus
TC Electronic Flashback X4
Custom Audio Electronics Line Driver

I've got quite the collection of pedals built up so it'll likely change soon, but for now this is what I'm using. I'm still going straight into the amp though, I've not had the time to mess around with putting pedals in the loop yet.

Dante, that Rondo case looks like the cat's banana.  I have a case similar to that except the lid doesn't come off to use as a pedalboard.  So mine is just for transporting the pedals for now.

I may just make the board I'll need and size it to fit in a,cheap suitcase I can get from a thrift store...

I also made my pedal board myself, although I don't use effect pedals, with me it's all midi.

For my boss pedals I use a behringer case which is also nice,but don't use the behringer cables or supplied adapter.

I made a board to fit into a thrift store suitcase & it served me well for a great many years. I just recently picked up the pedal board case.

Green = Wild card (notice the ???? all over the green one?)

Well, finally decided to just shop a pedalboard and be done with it.  ::)  I figured that by the time I mess around making one the way I want, then find a suitcase for it.....the PITA and $$ can be saved by just buying one.

So I got this Gator Gator GPBBAK1 and so far it seems to be just what I need, with a fine carrying case to boot.  I have to get some new 90* patch cables now though.  The hodgepodge ones I'm currently using are just temporary since I was just spreading my pedals out on the floor for the time being.  The Donner isolated power supply works great and is fastened up underneath the pedalboard and out of the way.

Why not???

We're gear addicted people.  :facepalm: :banana-dance:

I put a couple of pictures of my main pedalboard and of the little chinese nanoboard...
The first one took me a while to be set-up and a lot of time spent buying, selling, testing, changing and connecting stomps.
Now it's done and it's a keeper.
I just sold the Antarctic White Fuzz (a clone of BJF Arctic White Fuzz) and I've to put in place a TC Electronic Sentry noise gate, but I've no pictures yet because I was testing the Sentry with the MP-1...
The other clone (K19) is a Klon Centaur with a couple of 1960 Mullard diodes for clipping...a blast of an overdrive.

The second one has been a funny challenge: put together a small, complete and cheap pedalboard with all that one needs and very good tones.

I've also a small bunch of other clone pedals around, but they are not for pedalboards and one of them is on sale.
I will keep a very good Zendrive clone and a Klon Centaur clone with 3 different clipping modes.
The other one is a double pedal with BJFs Arctic White Fuzz and Honey Bee with internal 18V voltage, but I don't need it anymore.

Have fun!

I know, I know - laugh because I still do  :lol:

But I hard wired these two pedals together and these are all I have used for the last 5 years into the loop of whatever I'm playing. Now it goes from the MP-1.  ;D

 Yeah I only use a gate and a little delay, never anything more - it gets in the way for me  ;D
