Show us your pedalboard

Post by Bg »

I know a couple of guys here have built their own. I'm looking for ideas, also wondering what to put on it other than my 12 overdrive pedals ;) I don't know whether I can go purely with pedals though as I love to blend effects with the expression pedal on my Zoom GFX i.e. move smoothly from a chorused guitar to overdrive/distortion with echo....
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

Well here's my board.
It's made from a briefcase.
To make it:
1) Go nuts on the briefcase, detaching the lid from the rest of it, removing the hinges etc.
2) Cut piece of wood size of the briefcases interior
3) Cut little supports to hold the wood elevated
4) Drill all the holes into the board for all of your wiring
5) Get carpet (or preferably Veltex, would I couldn't source) and stick that onto the wood
6) Stick everything down with velcro, and there you have it.

I love it, very practical, because you can just chuck the top of the briefcase on, and away you go with it.
(Oh yeah, sorry about the large pics)

what I am more interested to know is, how do you do the flash guitargeek thing. I am aware of the site but have never found/worked out how to make one's own rig up... any help appreciated :)

Oh and that looks the business..

I love making them, changing them. I just bought a sheet of ply from placemakers, some glue, some felt and chop and change them.

This is my current set up but its about to change considerable

The beauty of the jekyl and hide is you can hit both buttons at once with your foot to turn both on at the same time or turn one on and one off at the same time, quite handy. The left side button is the tube screamer which is run as a fat boost and you can hit that and the delay with one step too.

Just go to guitargeek.com, save the picture of a rig that looks a bit like yours, also save the pictures of the rigs that contain all the pedals you want

once they are saved open them with microsoft paint and copy and paste all the bits into the one you want. Use the pencil tool to fix up the fine details with the pixel zoomed right in. Its fun

Well, I just search for the pedal I want, find it in a rig that is on the site, printscreen, crop, insert into my rig, repeat x10
Takes quite a long time, good fun though :)

If only the guitargeek server wasn't so fucking slow..

EDIT: dammit beaten to it
