How big is your pedal board?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by soundoholic, Jun 28, 2005.

  1. I'm putting together a pedal board right now, so I'm figuring out which effects I like together and what not. I seem to like every pedal I own. I'm starting to get worried that my pedal board may not be so gig friendly with how big it's going to be.

    So how big is your pedal board(WXD)?

    I was thinking of buying or building a pedal board to something like 28" x 16".

    Sadly, mine only has 2 pedals. I"m working on building it though. When i'm "done," it will be pretty huge.

    Whammy, Wah, Distortion, Phaser, Tuner, oh the GAS...
  3. 18 x 12 or 12 x 18 depending on how you look at it, mine won't get any bigger, i made it that size to limit the amount of effects i'd let myself use for a gigi...otherwise the thing would be huge

    Well Tecx wins this with his new board but I have the pedaltrain pro which is 32x16x3.

    Its pretty damn big

    I usually stick with a 12x24 but I've used bigger and smaller.

    I plead guilty.
    I was just too lazy to do it.

    Bigger than it should be but not as big as I'd like! :)

    I use a NYC Pedalboards 'Gigman' 23x14x5. It's not full yet but when I decide on a few more effects I might need to get a 2nd level riser for it. I really like the flexibility of their design.

    I dont feel I need to compensate ;) Sometimes I stomp the ground when the guitarist hits his distortion just to look cool though. :bassist:
  14. 60cm X 40 cm but it´s getting smaller and smaller everyday ;)
    I have to build new one in near future but GAS is running wild and my set up is going through changes.(again!)

    Yup, I lay down a chalange...

    40" x 24" x5"

    its BIG!



  16. 24x12x6 with a power strip with a 20ft cord. always room for me to put my crap where ever I want it :)
  17. I use a Radial Boneyard and it is big, but I really like having some space to arrange pedals. I also use a Boss DD-20 and a RC-20 and they take up a lot of real estate. The Boneyard is something lime 15"x35" and has a nice tilt to it. I don't use the holes yet, but the covering is super tough and really grabs that velcro.
