That's a one way to motivate lazy me to organize my guitar rig! Your board looks nice in this art but iirc, you stopped using boxes for the sake of modelling unit?

Are these the infamous sexy alu picks? If so, I'll give it my best smile.gif

I still have my pedal board! smile.gif I used to have two full pedal boards. I kept one and I keep adding to it smile.gif I still love pedals and love my pedal board. It's more about experimenting with tones and finding inspiration than anything else. I have a few new pedals that I"m going to make videos for. I got the accoustic simulator and cab loader from hotone as well as a audio interface from hotone that's small enough to fit on my pedal board. I've beceome a bit fan of hotone products over the years partially due to how economical they are. I'm able to trade a couple of pedals and get something new to try out every few weeks at local music shops. I love making gear vids and I love eperimenting with new gear smile.gif So I'll probably always have a pedal board and it will always be in constant flux.

Yes, these are the legendary Aircraft Aluminum picks that were hand made by our own VONHOTCH. Kris still uses them as well. String traverse is a breeze with these and they honestly making alternate picking much easier.

Awesome! I'd say experimenting and trying out gear is as much fun as playing guitar but it's a dangerous thing for collectors like me because I keep buying but not re-selling smile.gif
I'll submit mine this week, around Thursday.

My idea was too grand, I'd need to do it in the garden and would be very tricky sad.gif

All you gotta do is take a photo with your phone and put a filter on it smile.gif That's all I did. So far I'm the only entry, so any entry from you would great.

Yeah I know but my pedal board is a Helix LT, my guitars are spread along a wall and a rack and I have two amps so nothing like a few pedals like your pic. I was going to put all of my guitars in a circle on the floor and take the headstocks as the centre of the universe or something like that.

I have come up with another couple of ideas now though. Are we only allowed one entry?

Cheers

Phil

Dude smile.gif It's just taking a picture of some bit of kit, and adding a filter. You can take a pic of your fave guitar. I think you are massively over thinking this. Grab your phone, take a pic of your helix if you you like, add a filter in instagram or some app, there are tons of them and share the pic here smile.gif It's really that simple. I used a free app called prizma. I took the pic in the dark with no flash and it was horrible. Added a filter and bam! art

As it's a Von Hotch comp wink.gif



Todd, I think voting should be added when all pics are in for the sake of fairness and I say this after I voted for myself laugh.gif wink.gif

You get the pick of your choice for being the first one with the stones and gumption to actually put it in submission. Well done. Let me know which pick you like and I'll send it out. PM me. WE HAVE OUR FIRST WINNER!!!!
