    Took me a while to decide on this one. They used thicker plywood for more strength, but it's damn heavy.....

    Mine is a Warwick Rockcase. I love it.
    It's low priced, light, elegant, practical and sturdy.
    I only have one reproach about it : it's all aluminum so it gets dents very easily.

    let me tell ya about a pedal board
    sorry no pic - my guitar player is good friends with joe calzone (yeah THAT calzone - he always bugs tony that he wants to come sit in on drums with us - no kidding)
    anyhow the pedalcase is bigger than a guitar case but around the same shape - the pedals are protected beyond belief but...............good god is it HEAVY :eek:

    An organized pedal board is a beautiful thing:

    Hi Timothy,

    It's a custom made board. The builder lives about 1 min. from where I live.

    Unfortunately he has closed the "board-business" down. But I think that he has 1-2 board left yet.

    I'll gladly buy and ship one for you.

    Just let me know.

    here's mine. I'm currently using a Furman powered pedalboard. I need to redo the wiring, it's gotten real messy over time.

    I seriously considered one of those, but I didn't like the fact that the input jacks were housed in plastic. I like the design though. I settled for the Tourmaster case. Freakin weighs a ton, but nothing short of a nuke blast is going to hurt it!!

    Thanks to folks for posting pics of their pedal boards. They look cool. It would be even cooler if folks would tell us what's on them and in what order. Maybe it's just me, but I can't always tell from the pics.

    ok.
    Signal chain is:
    bass
    loooper 1
    loooper 2
    ebs multicomp
    analogman clonechorus
    mxr m-80
    to amp

    loooper 1 is a simple a/b letting be put the signal into the Boss TU-2 tuner when I want.

    loooper 2 is a 3 loop jobby, with individual loop on/off switches as well as a master on/off. This lets me bring 1 to 3 loops into the signal chain with one press.

    From loooper 2, we have loops a, b and c

    LoopA:
    Digitech Bass Synth Wah (used as an octaver primarily)
    Fulltone BassDrive (or Barber Deep Fryer depending on my mood)
    Akai UniBass
    LoopB:
    Carl Martin Fuzz
    EBS Bass IQ (or sometimes Akai Deep Impact)
    LoopC:
    Boss V-Wah

    With the loooper, I'll sometimes bring in loops 1&3 or 2&3 in at the same time - to get overdrive/distortion/fuzz and wah at the same time.
