Some of us get a thrill out of finding great tone on the cheap. I'm curious to see some of those boards. Here's mine: I got everything at GC on blowout sales. I made the board from a piece of wood I simply painted flat black, attached industrial strength velcro to the top and rubber feet to the bottom. It fits nicely into a small plastic case I found at work...powered with a VS 1 spot I got with a GC coupon and tied together with Hosa patch cables. I use a 2001 Peavey USA red stripe Transtube EFX 112 which has digital reverb, tap tempo delay and a bunch of really nice sounding footswitchable effects, so it allows me to experiment without spending extra cash. Trem, flanger, phaser, auto wah, octave, chorus and rotary speaker are all there and I paid $350 for it a few years back. I figured it would save me some cash through my fickle phases, and it has. I'm not cheap...just have a full house and not a lot to spend, although I am a stickler for good tone. I thought this might be fun and offer some ideas to others.
