Evolution of your Pedalboard

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by El Raro, Mar 24, 2014.

  1. We all had to start somewhere. Whether it was a case of wanting to expand your tonal horizons or a serious case of GAS - one way or another your "Just a tuner" ended up turning into "Just a couple dozen stompboxes". Show us what your board looked like from its very beginnings to its current form.

    Here's mine.

    Pedal "board" circa 2009:

  2. in the beginning there was my BDDI Programmable. it got me thru many years of 'not really playing bass but thumping out a bass part on a demo track' now & then.

    then i found this place, added some pedals i had lying around & made a few upgrades.

    & dug out some others i wasn't using for guitar & added a few more

    then i swapped a couple things out & downsized

    i've since moved the placement around & added the Robot Devil back in, but i don't have a shot of that.

    Photo from my first gig with an actual pedal board after many years using a Boss ME-50B:




    The Polytope and the Grey Stache are still going strong, although the Stache is now disguised as the Fifth Element water stone (second from right on bottom row).
