    Wow, that's pretty ridiculous.

    I saw Ler Lalonde's on the Primus DVD (Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People - The Duchess) and it was pretty huge too.

    Both the guitarist and bassist from The Mars Volta have insane pedalboards.

    Hands down, Doug Wimbish. His pedalboard isn't just really long..............it literally surrounds him! :eek:
  7. I wish I had a scanner so I could show you Juan Alderete's board, it IS pretty insane, but seems much smaller and more organized compared with Doug Wimbish's board:


    I'm still just happy with my Terrible Trio of what my friend calls "Unholy Bass": Big Muff-->Digitech Bass Synth/Wah-->Boss Flanger...

    Mike Einzinger's is huge:

    Hammet's is ridiculous:

    Are we talking big boards or number of perdals? I think Juan Alderete has the most pedals I have ever seen anyone use.

    I've seen a picture of Wimbish's old pedal board and that chain was looooong. Trey Anastasio usually has a rediculous amount of pedals - I'll try to find a pic...

    Wow, they use pedals that folks here dismiss as inferior.
  16. I would imagine the guys from dream theatre and yes would have some big pedalboards.

    I think the DT guys have pretty much all rackmounted stuff. If John has MORE than what's in his effin' rack, well then I just don't know...

    Most I've seen is Mike Enzinger on the Morning View stuff. He had probably about 10 more pedals than what's in that pic from Red Rocks, and now with his 2nd rate band.

    There's some insane pics on NYC Pedalboards' website and also Dave at Loooper has some crazy stuff. Justin Meldal-Johnsen has a bunch too. He had a BP issue where it broke down his gear, and unlike Chaney (which is what I'd do if I had the $$), his is ALL on his pedalboard. Crazy.
