This bad boy is even raked a little bit to offer some more comfort and the ability to pretty much hide the patch cables behind the wood.

EDIT: By popular demand



And just to answer some questions. It looks like some of the pedals have two inputs and outputs linked together because if you shove the patch cable under that board (to make it neater) and push the pedals towards each other you'll notice that with certain brands of patch cable that you can make a very tight connection no wider than the actual jack of the cable.

I get the power to the board from a boss PSA 9v adapter that is fed into my korg ptichblack and is daisy chained from there into each of the pedals. There are an extra 3 connectors to the daisy chain that are electrical tapped to the back waiting to be used.

TL;DR
Daisy chain on top, single patch cables with pedals forced closer, velcro to keep pedals attached.

Took a total of 30 minutes. There's no reason anybody shouldn't have a pedal board. This was the easiest build I've ever done and not only does it keep things organized and packed tight but it makes for easier transportation.

its not hard guys..

just a few boards longways and a board every foot or 2 for support going vertical. you could make it out of pine

edit: congrats on the economy pedalboard. looks neat. i might try something like this after i move

Nice man, I might have to try this once I get enough pedals

Well obviously... but I want to know what the chords are connecting the pedals together, and to the power supply. I also want to know what holds the pedals to the boards...

first part, probably just short patch cables. second is probably a daisy chain or two, and lastly, velcro is what most people use. am i right TS?

Thank god for you, Jared. Half this thread was about to get a huge face palm until you showed up.

... what?

Dude all it is is 2 long pieces of lumber screwed onto 2 wedges of wood. It's really not that complicated.

Did you read my post you quoted at all?

I was simply asking what you should do if each individual pedal you are using has only 1 Output Jack and 1 Input Jack... as in the picture the OP has 2 Input Jacks, and 2 Output Jacksn on each individual pedal....

TS, what wood DID you use? pine? i'm assuming as pine is like 3 dollars for a 6' 2X4

edit: warhead, it's a looping thing i believe you dont have to us all 4 jacks. i usually only use 2. i've never spent the time to learn the aux parts yet.

You don't run each pedal out separately. You link them through each other, then run the last one to the amplifier.

There are not 2 inputs and 2 outputs. The two ends of the plugs are just really close. It looks like there are tw0, but one is the output from the previous pedal, and the other is the input to the next pedal.

The wire running at the top is the power supply.

^ Exactly.

sorry about misreading your post, odstwarhead, I was just a little confused about why you were having so many questions about something as simple as a pedal board.
#22
i need to make something like this, right now my pedals just sit on the ground and move all over the place. nice, easy solution.

this is a brilliant idea, and something that i really need. unfortunately, psychology currently owns my soul (and my time), so a project like this will have to wait, but this is definitely going on the list as a Christmas project.

EDIT: by the way, i know this sounds stupid with a design so simple, but could you possibly take some more detailed pictures and give a brief description of how you put it together? I'm putting this link on my calender for December so that i'll remember to do this lol

EDITEDIT: yea, i know that i'm stupid wanting pics and stuff, but i'm very visual and very bad at putting things together correctly.

That's the exact setup I'd have except I'd mod the flanger to be momentary on and there's no OD.

Nice board. Looks real simple.

I had a ts9 and my bad horise is stuck on permanent ON mode (gonna have to add a momentary dpdt switch to the base).

I used to have about 8 pedals, but I didn't use the phaser or the eq I had, and at one point I had a MD2 and a MT2 which both got sold when I got my first real amp.

If only I had any money to buy more pedals with lol. All I have at the moment is a Crybaby. I had to blow money I was saving for gear on parts to save my pc. But when I do have more pedals, I will surely look into this.

the only reason you would need a pedal board would be to organize/power pedals. a pedal board is basically a completely non-essential tool, but certainly useful...only if you have pedals.

the only way this could be easier is if it was just one single wood board. no need for cutting or screws to hold it together.
