New pedalboard preview
#1
So I ditched my big board and I'm building myself a smaller board. Here's a sneak preview:

[Image: 1d2d7a0cf3af4b5a400da03acd51a238.jpg]

Obviously, I've still got a lot of work to do, but I'll give you a brief rundown. The controller at the bottom will control all five of my analog pedals (minus the wah) and have control over my midi pedals in my effects loop. It also has a tuner mute and most importantly, control over the amp's channel switching. In total it can store 60 presets, of which I can recall 5 at any given time with the switches on the bottom. So I can set up a nice bold clean on switch one, a fuzz into the clean channel on switch two, the dirty channel of my amp with a nice tape delay on switch three, a fuzz with a phaser on switch four, and a liquid solo tone via my Flux five on switch five. Additionally, I'll have that little metal box next to it set up to control the solo function of my amp, so I can get a solo boost on any tone I have the controller switched to.

I'm going to try my best to make this really nice looking as well. I'm going to make risers for each pedal with a little channel to the center so I can route the cables under the board both to and from the power units and back and forth from the switcher, so no cabling will be seen. I'm going to paint the whole board. What color, I'm not sure yet, but I've got a beautiful green, a root beer, a black, and I'm thinking of getting some silver. Also, I did this to the edges.

They will all be masked off and painted a different color. I'm leaning towards doing a rising sun in green and black with silver for the edges, but like I said, I'm not sure yet.

This is going to be fun. I've got the effects send and return, amp control, power, and main board out (I'll be plugging straight into my wah) all in the same spot.

Unfortunately, it looks like I'll need to rent a drill press because it turns out that you can't get a spade bit through 3/4 maple ply by hand. I'd buy one but I have no space for it.

There's definitely going to be a graphic. It's not proprietary, but it's a throwback to my very first board.
