So after a LOT of hunting, I of course found the best option on craigslist (surprise surprise). Scored this Pedaltrain Pro with case for $80, brand new in the box. They sell for close to $200 in stores. I was originally gonna go with Rondo's pedalboards but the price difference btwn that one and this one ended up being like $10 and this thing is really professional quality. This thing is really solidly built and I have full confidence that it would hold up under intense touring.

It doesn't take up too much room but it has a lota space on it. All of my pedals fit comfortably with plenty of room for more. I HIGHLY recommend Pedaltrain pedalboards. Here's a pic or two:

Considering the smaller pedaltrain sells for like 30 bucks more than I paid for this one...didn't make sense to get the smaller one when I know I'm gonna keep on gettin' new pedals

Haha, I feel you on that one dude. The Polytune is AWESOME. I absolutely love it. Tuning is a breeze.

Of course I know that. The problem is i live in an apartment, have pretty much none of the tools that would be needed to do it, and it would never be as professional quality as this. When you have the money to get something of professional quality and know that youd only be able to build one thats amateurish...what's the point?

delete the review, post clips.



just take something and tap it on the board.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Get one of those new Germanium Big Muffs and that board is full. Hahah.

Haha, I don't like fuzz pedals. I think right now on my list for future purchases once the guitar fund fills up again would be a flanger pedal and maybe a chorus, although the mod switch on the Carbon Copy more or less does that.

put that rubber duckie on the board if you want more quack out of it.

just ask quailman.

Haha nah man, the rubber ducky must stay on the amp. It's been on every amp I've owned since I started playing in '99. It's actually the secret to getting "that" tone that every player wants. Don't tell anyone

i like your set up. what's that pedal in the middle of your board above the classic distortion?


Thanks man. It's a custom built footswitch for my Mesa :-)

Yeah, it's a tremoverb so you can't really get footswitches from Mesa unless you buy 3 or 4 separate mesa "stompbox" style switches...one for channel, one for reverb, etc. Since I thought that was really dumb (and i hardly use the tremolo), I just had a custom one made to switch the channels and the reverb on/off. The company is "Switch Doctor", I highly recommend em. Great price, shipped to me in like 2 days, and just a great company to work with.

Within the price range, the Malekko Ekko 616 and the Carbon Copy are the best, so a friend and I decided to do a side by side demo. Conclusion was, that the CC was darker, and made the tone a little more harsh, while the Ekko mellows out the tone and is brighter in comparison. The other noticeable difference was that the Ekko would start to get a little funky on the longer delays, the last note would sort of wobble a bit. This added to the more organic vibe we both thought the Ekko had. The CC's repeats were much closer to that of a digital delay, more accurate.

Hope that helps, sorry for hijacking.

No hijacking man, always good to help out our fellow UGers . I tried the Ekko as well and actually experienced the OPPOSITE of what you did. The role of the amp in all this really shouldn't be discarded.
