    Thanks man! Much appreciated, it was my sons idea (he's 10 years old). He filmed it, directed it, ha-ha.

    UPDATE

    The MXR is gone, should have a new pick today or tomorrow. I'll post a before and after. The OCD killed me and I couldn't stand how the MXR pedal was out of place.

    No, they only supply it in black. I already had a roll of Velcro in white, so I used it instead.

    Well here is my OCD in action, no not the pedal. The fact that the pedals didn't line up drove me crazy so I fixed that problem.

    I actually found a limited run Gravy pedal which is Tri-Chorus and Vibrato in one pedal. Plus it has tone print so I can beam chorus tones to the pedal. I left it with Andy Summers "Walking on the Moon" print.

    I'll have to do a review on my YouTube Channel because this pedal is insane. No wonder they are hard to find. Blows the MXR out of the water plus it has Tone Print and Vibrato. What's not to like?

    I did the making of the pedal board last week and got over a 100 views in a few days.
    I will link the video for those who want to make a homemade pedal board for $50.

    So without further adoo.

    How do you guys like the offset couplers like that? Was thinking about ordering some to try

    I had that Z coupler in my Amazon cart but I'm glad I got the Gravy pedal. It's so much better than the MXR anyway. Plus the power was on the side right where the output jack is. It is such a terrible design that I could not deal with it. I would have needed to a side hole just for that pedal, no thanks it had to go.

    They are a bad idea. When you stomp on one pedal you create stress at the jacks of the one next door.

    Unless they are the same brand like I have. I used the same Velcro on all the pedals so everything is uniform, no stress. When I had the MXR I had to double the Velcro on the back so it would line up.

    Same brand not an issue, different brands is an issue.

    I use the same connectors. I'm using Catlinbread & Subdecay pedals which are the same size & layout. If I need to use an offset connector I like the smaller brass ones.

    I'm gonna have to go with Waparker on this one. Although i didn't have the 'z' couplers, i used to use the standard straight couplers, they were very inconsistent in how round and straight they were. over time, i'd have to reach down and give them a turn to make a solid connection. i believe it does stress the jack inputs. YMMV. just my .02

    Here is the new pedal board YouTube video introducing the Gravy pedal.

    Of course I was going to play that famous early 90's riff, it's a chorus pedal, that's what you have to play with chorus!

    Love that PH-1r. Best phaser I ever had. The PH-3 was good too, but not as organic as the 1r, IMO.

    I use as many direct connects as possible (three on my current board with probably one more coming) and never have a problem, but I hard mount my pedals using bicycle chain links. Straight direct connects if identical pedal manufacturer, otherwise I use the offsets by mounting one pedal and then swing the other pedal to it's final resting spot for hard mounting. Direct connects with velcro is inherently a bad idea as mentioned above IMO.
