Show us your pedalboard

It is the Heavy pedal made by Empress out if Canada. Two channel high gain with built in noise gates on both sides. It is by far the best high gain distortion I've ever tried. Sounds like a modified Marshall. Can do scooped modern sounds, or more mid focused classic heavy rock sounds, which is what I like. If you're looking for high gain, you won't find one much better than this.
Sounds great but not something I need. I use my Triple XXX for high gain it goes way higher than anything I use.

Last year I got kinds of carried away and ordered a Schmidt Array board after years of procrastination due to the prices. Irony is, if I’d just done it years ago I woulda saved money on all the cheaper boards that didn’t quite cut it … ah well!

A few pedals have changed since these pics (JHS Fuzz replaced with a Mini Cry Baby, Heavy Hand with a Free The Tone Jasper and the EQD Arrows with a Fulltone Fat Boost) but the basic board setup remains:



I’ve also now set up the Victory V4 Sheriff connected to the ‘boards patch box such that you can 4-cable it to use the amps effects loop - with appropriate effects pre/post both the amps preamp and the Sheriff (in fact, the Sheriff bypasses the amps pre-amp and goes straight in the FX return when it’s engaged) - or just put the whole board up front of the amp for simplicity and the patch-box automatically connects what would be the send/return from the ‘board together so it all ‘just works”.

That was a fun morning, figuring that out …

I'm currently in the process of building a small pedalboard. With my main band. I currently only use a Jr. Barnyard for my electric guitar, but I plan on building an XLR-Mute for the dpa I use on my electric. So my Board only needs space for two pedals. I thought if I already put in the effort I might build something that doesn't look like anything you can buy off the shelf, so here's the current status quo of my Casino-board:

I love the look of the stained wood with the green felt!
The wooden frame is finger-jointed and angled. I'm still debating with myself whether or not I'm going to add an electrical plug for a music stand light.

Well, it's finally done:

I cut the Finger-joints by hand, and that took a lot longer than i had anticipated. I also messed up the Poker-Chip jackplates while drilling, but will replace them. If I were to do it again I'd make the board larger, as I barely could fit all the electronics inside. Altogether I'm kinda happy though.
