HERE IT IS GUYS, it hath been two been years since the last, some of us have been prepping for it since the day of thy last. A new chapter shall begin in the BATTLE OF THE BOARDS.

here are the catagories

*Small* BOARD OF THE YEAR - 1-5 pedals

*Medium* BOARD OF THE YEAR - 6-10 pedals

*Big* BOARD OF THE YEAR - more than 10 pedals

*Pretty* BOARD OF THE YEAR - aesthetics do count for something, any number of pedals.

*Excessive* BOARD OF THE YEAR - do something stupid and extreme. Maximum 16 pedals.

Here are the rules.

*each user can submit two boards.
*they must have a picture of YOUR board WITH a piece of paper stating your UG Name and what you are entering for.
*email them to UGBOTB2016@GMAIL.COM before 2-28-2016 with YOUR ID AND BOARD AND CATAGORY IN SUBJECT LINE.
*i will (trashed) orgainize them into catagories. you (forumites) will vote.
*all pedals must be both powered and connected. NO EXCEPTIONS. however, they do not need to be on a specific board.


MARCH SHALL BEGIN ANOTHER ERA IN THE REIGN OF THE BATTLE OF THE PEDALBOARDS...

all hail thy pedal.

Are you counting amp footswitches, and if so, do they count as one pedal no matter how many buttons?

I don't use pedals anymore (GASP), but I always found these fun to look at and I entered in 2 as well, I think. Might've been one that never actually got to voting though.

Anyway, hopefully there are some nice entries! ^^

Footswitches don't count. If there is one component that does not alter the tone at all itself it doesn't count. So A/B boxes and switchers and footswitches don't count.

dspellman - i am counting on you to put in a solid entry in .

Okay, I have a patch bay, aux switch, volume, and expression on my board. Do those count? Because if all 4 count I'm at 18 pedals... The Aux and expression could just count with just my delay it's attached to as one pedal? The patch bay is basically for routing to the board so it could be part of the pedalboard itself. Then my volume could count and I'd be at 16 pedals. That legit? Hahaha

[quote="trashedlostfdup[/quote"]Footswitches don't count. If there is one component that does not alter the tone at all itself it doesn't count. So A/B boxes and switchers and footswitches don't count.

Is it cool if I leave my amp footswitch on there just for aesthetic purposes? I'm guessing you're just talking about what contributes to the pedal count? I would still be in the small category anyway since I just have 4 pedals - the amp footswitch would make it 5. I made the footswitch box myself out of some scrap metal from my dad's junk pile that was super rusted and as I was sanding the rust off I thought the pattern looked really cool and decided to not sand it all the way down and clear coat over the rust. We welded sides on it and I used saltwater to purposely rust the weld lines on the edges so it would match. It also has some extra holes because I was thinking about adding another switch for something and then later decided I didn't need it which kinda sucks, but whatever. It looks pretty cool and I'd hate to have to take it off and leave a big blank spot.

I'm entering my board in the Small category and the Pretty category. Can/should I send two separate pictures?

Only the volume pedal counts. The others are extentions of the rest of your other pedals and/or don't alter the tone.

You can leave your footswitch on for aesthetic purposesls, no problem. It does not count towards the count.

For two entries, i want one pic per entry. Please make sure you have the name and category on both pics.

That gives me an idea for a new pedal design.

You know how it sounds when you listen to someone's voice on the other side of a fan? Do the same, but with the guitar's signal being processed through a fan...of a stack of crisp $1000 bills mounted to a Rolodex housing.

Most expensive pedal ever and works as a bribe as well!
