if so, have you got any pics and/or tips?
I want to for kicks.
Before I do it, i'm going to write it all out. I want to make it REALLY REALLY clean and organized. I would like some tips too.
EDIT: A quick google gives me this.
I made one for myself, it has a hollow bottom , so when I'll have all my pedals , I'll be able to drill the holes to hide the jack and 9v cables, My only regret is that it is a little bit small but hey, Ive got two EHX pedals so it looks small!!!
I'm very happy to have it
I bought a gun case and modified it for pedal board/case. Here's the case http://tinyurl.com/7ugja Notice that for pedal board usage the case must be upside down, ie. pedals will be attached to the cover of the case. As you can see the fastened gum feets to prevent the sliding on action.
Modification was easy. I took it to the suit case repairer and told that I want folding side raplaced with case locks, so I can remove the cover from the case. Here's pic http://tinyurl.com/c438n
After that I ripped that soft material from inside the cover. Like I mentioned, the cover is actually the board. I glued 3M dual lok fastener into the cover and bottom of my pedals.
Here's pic of the board with some pedals attached http://tinyurl.com/5r56v
There's also cases for rifles if you have more pedals
First question: yes I have
as for pics, look at the megathread "post your pedalboard" to see the stompbox porn.
Just a warning little dude, sometimes an angled pedalboard takes some serious adjustment to get used to. I prefer mine flat.
Yeah, I kinda took that into consideration. I don't like angled neither. What i'd do would just make it elevated on both sides, because I think it's cool to have space on the bottom to put in cords and power supplies, etc etc.
Think about stepping up too... don't go too high. My other ex-guitarist did this, and he was always complaining that it was too high. I reminded him that he made it and should shut up.
I'm happy to know that you've got my back.
I think before I nail anything in or anything, i'll experiment with what I like. It won't be too high, just high enough so I can route some cables behind it. The bottom would be able to attatch on and off to adjust the routing and whatnot.
