After looking all over the web for a pedalboard which wasn't too fancy, met my needs and nothing added and wasn't too costy, I decided to build my own, using:

-a plank of plywood stolen from my cupboard
-2 rolls of 15m velcro (wasn't enough sadly)
-6 rubber feet and 10 screws i stole from college
-got riffs? sticker

for all the screwing and tidying up i used:

-philips screwdriver
-a scissor knife (tidying velcro edges)
-scissors
-a filled up magnum gun (hammer)

some pics:

Birdseye view - I didn't want to space out the velcro, but i only could afford 2 rolls of 15m, and that still wasn't enough!!!

Dave Weinie - got riffs?

scissors for cutting the velcro,
screwdriver for the screws on the sides and for the rubber legs
the gun because it had a heavy barrel and made a good hammer, (i couldn't find a hammer)
the scissor knife for tidying the velcro edges

The pedalboard with the pedals!!!

That's all folks.

Looks handy... I take it there is velcro on the underside of the pedals too. What do the top two pedals do? (The one with four switches and the ACDC pedal)

The one with four switches is the amp footswitch, Clean, OD1, OD2, DFX on/off
AC/DC powers the pedals.

Quite scary that you have a gun, but no hammer......

Very nice work... I like the velcro idea..might even give it a try in time.

and it looks cool too!

:)


:peace

Off topic: How do you rate the whammy pedal? that one has always been a big question mark in my small budget.. I like the effect but is it worth investing in something I would rarely use?..and then I forget about it.. until I see another one!

lol for the gun.

Buy a whammy or i'll kill you!

Nah, it's awesome dude, I don't only use it for the obvious '+ Octave' but also for the harmony settings, that is of course until I go and get myself a POG, then it would probably be for the '+ Octave' and 'Divebomb' features.

The only thing I hate about the whammy pedal is that in the 'down tune' feature, if your guitar signal is clean it sounds terrible, cuts out a lot, very noticeable and you can tell the signal is being mapped.
