    Here's my updated board, with the latest addition, a Digitech EX-7 Expression Factory, an ebay purchase. This fits the bill for me in many ways, as I wanted to add a Leslie, Univibe, Flanger and volume pedal to my rig, and the EX-7 has all those and more. I really like the Leslie and Univibe effects on it.

    My homemade board, just finished after many months of blood, sweat and tears. Has a "spring suspended" Peavey "Valverb" (tube reverb/tremolo) under the hood. No velcro, pedals secured with cable clip/fasteners (a first?). Front and rear doors are hinged.

    Hi, is the wholly roller worth it?

    Yah, I nearly choked on the price... :eek:

    The WR is built like the proverbial tank compared to a plastic Roland or M-Audio expression pedal. I don't know whether that'll translate into a longer lifespan or higher reliability; I have yet to kill an inexpensive expression pedal.

    There's a big difference in the "feel" of the WR. Rather than rocking back and forth, you push the roller back and forth. I find this to be a way more accurate way to control volume (which is what it's used for with the `rang). I think the roller would be a really bad way to control a wah, though.

    The big benefit of the WR on my board, though, is its size. It's a full two-inches shorter than the Roland and M-Audio pedals. This helped to reduce the size of the board. (Not that it's a small board, but it would have been larger without the WR.)

    Iago,

    Very nice work. I especially like the recessed "in" and "out" connections.

    What do you mean by "cable clip/fasteners"? Looks like something close to the bicycle chain link method.

    The continuous slots for cable feeds is a great idea too.

    And we share a Milk Box!

    Built the board out of some wood from home depot, spray painted it gold, and put some nice looking fabric on the front.

    I run this from my tele into my TSA30. So the amp has a built in Tube Screamer. I plan on running the hall of fame and the nova delay through the effect loop, but waiting on some extra cables to come in the mail to do that.

    Heres the order
    t1m buffer>Malekko Wolftone Chaos> Pigtronix Tremvelope> Dunlop VP-1> AMP

    LOOP: TC Elec. Nova Delay> TC ELec. Hall of fame Reverb>

    Amp foot switch on the side of the board.

    I'm pretty proud of it :D Probably going to upgrade my delay pedal to an el cap or timeline. just waiting on some funds.

    Hi Berek, you may have confused me with Iago (and thanks to both of you for the compliments).

    The slots in the top are a series of 1-1/2" and 3" slots. They look continuous when the pedals are installed. The clip fasteners are the type used for anchoring various size cables/wires. They are sorta similar to the chain link method. These are usually white, but I stained them for an aged look. They mount to the pedal screws, and then are screwed to the top with small screws. The screw heads are slightly hidden once installed.

    Tarnisher, that's a great use of compact pedals! Very nice.

    How are you liking the Blackstone?

    Thanks!

    The Blackstone sounds as good as it looks. It's two pedals in one, and they both sound great. If the red channel was capable of a bit more gain, I might lose the Black Secret (Rat clone), but I do make use of all three gain stages.

    That's what I'm aiming for, compact, clean, and mean. I always play with the BAMO brown channel ON. Love that thing.

    Tarnisher, really nice board with just the right essentials. Perfect grab and run rig for jams. How would you characterize the two channels of the Blackstone. What amp do you like running this board to? Just a super nice, sweet set up.

    Goldrush,

    Sorry for the name confusion. I see now what clips you mean. Kinda a lower case b, or p, or d seen in profile. Good idea. I guess you can get those in bulk at home improvement stores and such.

    Beautiful craftsmanship.

    Wow! Nice woodwork on the last post. Almost ashamed to show mine, but here it is. Made this about 15 years ago - lots of miles and a little beat up. Pedals have changed over time, but these have been on a few years. I try and keep things simple.
