    Just a simple question after i got my board set.

    How much does your board weight?

    I've came across a 66 lbs monster, and despite loving every pedal, not feasible for me to carry it around.

    Glad you came to the effects forum to let us know you don't use pedals.

    I estimate mine at around 5-6 lbs.

    Yes, 30 kg = 66 lbs.

    I think i have a problem. I mean, i see lots of big boards around here, and i was amazed that everybody carried such heavy boards around. Got mine for a week or so and i want to split it in half.

    Estimatives are just fine! No need to weight it, but people will start getting curious. :D

    Schimmy how many pedals do you have on your board?? How much does the board weight it self?

    I've actually wondered this. I had a PTJr for a bit and just didn't like the weight when it was filled up, so I try to keep the gigging boards to 5 pedals or less. Guesstimate my main board is around [del]7 lbs[/del]. EDIT: huh, after seeing the pic below, my Nano can't be over 5 lbs. Maybe my plywood version is.

    good question. I did a few gigs with a soundscape-y band recently and the bag with all the pedals (no board) weighed almost as much as my 1x12 Avatar cab. Not really fun in crowded public transport.

    I am down to 6 pedals now, with the main offender in terms of weight (Whammy) replaced by a Pog. Probably 10-12 lbs or so now?
  13. Well I am currently researching pedals for use as I'm not completely closed minded to the use of effects. :)
  14. Over the years mine has gone up and down from none to rack loads.

    Right now its only 1lbs (Boss CS-3).

    But it may grow again soon (tuner and board).

    estimating mine at 5-7 pounds. I run 3 pedals. Korg pitchblack tuner A fuzz wren and cuff pickle pie b or a blackout musket, And my wireless reciever if you can count that as a pedal...
  16. Nope, but it counts as weight. ;)

    About 7-8 pounds.

    It's residing in a backpack thanks to impending cane-use post knee surgery

Roland gr-20, SA MWBD2, OC-2, filtertwin, tlc, tc flashback, SA exp pedal. I did have an m9 and a morley tm stevens wah on it. I'm trimming back now, before my back trims me!:bag:
