    Now after seeing Tecx's Board I'm interested to know if any one has a bigger pedalboard.

    Now I think the rules should be:
    This has to be your pedalboard that your using not just a couple of friends board that you've stuck together.

    We will be measuring the area of the board not just the length

    You must provide measurements of your board so we can calculate are.

    BTW Tecx's board is 6510cm squared.
     
  2. tsk tsk, it's not the size, it's how you use it.... :smug:

    Here's my pedalboard:







    I used to use pedals all the time, but one time a pedal went out, and to fix it, I just pulled out all my pedals and plugged right into the amp. I played a couple notes and thought, wow, so that's where all my tone went! I guess if you have true bypass in all your pedals, it's not an issue, but I didn't.

    I'm not against pedals at all, but I just don't have any occasion to use them at all. I'm producing a guy who loves to use a Rat pedal, and his bass sounds great. But for me, eh...

    Just incase people are getting mistaken this is a not a show your pedalboard thread this is purely for the dimensions of your board.

    My current area is

    512 inches squared
