Trailer Trash Pedal Board
I wired up the pedal board last night and I am really pleased with the result. First up is a shot of the old pedal board:
And here are some shots of the finished pedal board. Much cleaner and much easier to use.
It looks great, but you also did away with the chorus and compressor (I think). Any reason why? Was it a space issue, or that you just don’t use them?
There was a noise suppressor on the old board. Never used it. I did put in the Analog Man Orange Squeezer — that is a compressor and I do use that one.
The VooDoo Labs Analog Chorus has a really annoying “feature”. It boosts the volume significantly when it kicks in. As a consequence, I never used that pedal either. Added in a wah pedal as I do find myself using it from time to time.
Most of my tone comes through my hands, the guitar and the amp. Outside of a bit of delay, I don’t make much use of pedals. Old school I guess 😉
That is positively the cleanest wired setup I have ever seen
I like that simple design! I looked into lots of prefab boards but they were all too small for my switching system, so I made my own.
I’ve got instructions on how to build my pedalboard here. Let me know what you think!
Loved your post on how to build a pedalboard. I also really liked your collection of pedals. Thanks for dropping by the blog.
Thanks, man! Hope your noggin’s OK…
I loved seeing your pedal board- i am in the market for one right now.
Was your TT pedal board a “stock” board? Have you done wiring before, and how hard is it?
Any chance of an email reply?
Hi Graham. I have sent you a pm.
How did you mount the power supply on the back of the board?
Very nice set up!
What size is this pedalboard?
