Hey guys, hoping someone can help me out here. Here's the problem: pedal boards. Not so much the pedals themselves, not which order to put them in, or any of that stuff, but the board itself, the solution you use to assemble your pedal board. It's really hard to find any kind of pedal board that actually works as well as it should and for a reasonable price. So, I'm going to design and build a better solution that doesn't cost the earth. I've already got a few ideas, but I could really use some out-of-the-box thinking about what works for you....? How do you attach the pedals and the power supplies? Do you have a way of keeping all the signal and power patch cables tidy? Is there a better option than cable-ties, and why? If I use any of your ideas I'll let you know and I aim to post some pictures of the build while in progress and the finished article. So, go on, give me your weirdest wackiest ideas! --------------------- (In case you're interested, here's what I've found so far...) I LIKE: Carry-cases like the ones Stagg make - that's convenient! Best way I've found to attach pedals is using cable-ties across the width of the pedal. Board needs to cater for mains power supply Needs to be easy to reconfigure Need sufficient space all round for connections to and from pedals Pedal-mounting surface needs to be uniform in size but I do need extra space for wah Needs to be fairly rugged. PITA: Any commercially available boards that will take cable ties only work if the ties go across the length of the pedal, which sucks: all those switches and dials just get in the way! All decent commercially available boards are hideously expensive! Most commercial boards are set up for velcro. Velcro just does not work IMHO; the glue nearly always comes unstuck when you try to move the pedals. Alternative method: drill a hole in pedal base unit and screw that bad-boy down to the board. It's a load of hassle compared to cable ties though and probably will invalidate your pedal's warranty. Did I mention the price? Some of these things are up in the hundreds of pounds for a couple of lengths of wood or steel... seriously...?
