    oh thats just evil :twisted:. Guess they will only be able to critique the guitars, amps, mics, cables, picks, technique, tone, and color of cargo shorts...

    Well I didn't build it that way for that reason but I did enjoy it once I saw what was going on.

    Hard to see in this photo - Ikea Gorm board painted black with velcro, fits perfectly into my flight case, even with my additional blocks along the backline to raise the M5, DE-7 and SHO

    I would love to build something like that. You got details/instructions or a website you got instructions and parts from?

    ^^^^^.... Not really. I modeled after Trailer Trash boards.

    I don't mind helping you out if you need to find parts and what not. I even have some extra locking jacks....

    That's why I love this place. I'll be in touch via pm. I've been looking for a project since I've completed my additions to the ol' pedal board.....for now.

    Folded it out of scrap sheet metal, screwed it together and spray painted it. It's my poor mans pedal train and it only cost about $20!

    Made a quick design one evening and made it at my boss' shop. I really didn't have a good grasp on what I needed in order to make a good pedal board but I tried anyway. I had four pedals at the time and was getting tired of setting them all up at every rehearsal. I used 5/8" birch ply for the body and 1" pine for the slats inside. This thing is REALLY heavy! Like 35-40 pounds. The thick ply was a rookie mistake but for now this is it. I routered the edges of the top and bottom so they would fit nicely. I can remove the slats where the pedals sit so that I can get to the electronics below. I'm using a one spot daisy chain to power most pedals but a few. I was later able to add a power bar inside also. Believe it or not I didn't save much money making this. I spent $120 on materials and it took me about 1 1/2 days labour. But it's built like a tank and it works and it's my first so I like it.

    Functionally that's not such a bad idea with a few modifications thrown in...:p
