Hey guys, I've been playing for a while and have a large collection of pedals. What pedal board should I get?

I was thinking: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/SKB...oard?sku=544735 but it's real expensive.

Any cheap ideas guys?

Thanks,

Jonathan

I have: Fulltone Full Drive, FullTone Deja Vibe, MXR Zakk Wylde OD, Ibanez PT-808 Phaser (old skool 70's one, it'd bad ass), 535q Crybaby, Boss Chronomatic Tuner, Ibanez Cs-9 Chorus, MXR Dynacomp, Boss Digidelay, and when I'm lazy I just use my PodXT all through a Mesaboogie F-50 mmm

I was thinking about making my own, but what about the power situation?

I dont know, it seams little heavy, and a bit pricey. Check out the Boss BCB60, and see if this one is heavier. If it is DON`T buy it. Also check if your pedals need more than 100mA of power. If they do, then this is not a good choise.

If it's still on the board, so to speak, check out these as well:
Stonecastle Pedalboards

That's what I'm planning to buy, but I'll wait to febuary since there are new modells out then with less weight and a little cheaper.

I prefer customized pedal boards and power supply,

Plus it's cheaper I guess. smile.gif

Save $$$ and build your own, unless you need some extravagant hunk of wood/metal that they're going to charge you a small fortune for.

And custom power supply as well,20 euros.

It's messy with cables atm,ready for closing the case wink.gif

Here's a couple of pics of mine....It's completely ghetto, but first and foremost, it serves it's purpose with no problems, and second, if I wanted to elaborate on it, it wouldn't be a problem. I think it cost me a grand total of $15. The wood came from an old stereo cabinet that I found in the shed when my wife and I bought the place, the only thing I actually paid for was the carpet, the epoxy and the door stops. The door stops are actually the perfect thing for giving it the proper angle.

Personally, I'm looking for something in line with what Muris has. When you're done playing, just snap on the top and you're ready to go. Great look on your's as well Muris. smile.gif

Perhaps i should check up on prizes for materials and consider to build my own. Desicions, decisions.... smile.gif

I have never used single pedals or a pedal board , I have only used multi fx pedals , isn't it easier to have one multifx pedal where you can program your effects? I mean it for live purposes too. Sorry if its a silly question.

It's easier for sure,less cables etc.
But it's matter of tone and what player prefers. smile.gif

Multi FX are awful things. I only ever buy single pedals as then you can choose the best. Multi FX creates fake awful sounds.

So you can have the tone of your pandora PX4, but improved. When zou record in the studio do you use the pedal board , or how do u manage zour effects? And how do u to achieve the same tone playing live?

Sorry for all this questions , me firts multifx pedal was a Korg A4 , then a Korg A100g and now the tone port , so this is a new subject for me.

Thanks.

Try the Boss BCB60 if its not too small. Good pedalboard for small money. You can check out the review here. wink.gif

For gigs I use pedal board above and gear below

For recording,well it depends,if I record line(no mic) I use only bottom unit from rack Roctron Prophesy,
(it'll soon be replaced by Triaxis and G-Force) and maybe volume pedal,wah,compressor and whammy.
No need for midi controler.

And if I record miced then I use whole gear from pic above and some pedals,depends again. biggrin.gif
