You thought that the Patriots and Atlanta was a fight?

THAT WAS NOTHING COMPARED TO THIS.

IT IS NOW TIME FOR THE 2017 BATTLE OF THE BOARDS


___


Stay tuned for more updates and specifics.

The submission date will be on Sunday March 5th.

Start crafting the boards of the gods.

trashed.

SUBMISSION DATE: is March 13 2017
EMAIL TO: ugbotb2017@gmail.com
MUST BE .JPEG, not over 2MB
A piece of paper with your UG NAME and date must be shown in the picture. Nothing fancy, a sharpie and a piece of printer paper or a sticky note is fine.

CATEGORIES! *potentially subject to change due to lack or excess of applicants*

1. SMALL 1-6 pedals
2. MEDIUM 7-11 pedals
3. HUGE 12+
4. Pretty Pedalboards. whatever you want, make it look good.
5. MFX Boards (this is exempt from the rule regarding MFX pedals stated below*.
6. Budget/Noob Boards. Can't hang with the big boys? Not a concern in this category.

Rules:

There are to be no MFX pedals if they are digital with display and used for PREAMP modeling only. they do not count. if they are used exclusively for mod/delay, that is fine. think strymon, eventide, or a MFX just used in the loop.
2.Tuners count as a pedal.
3.Footswitches for an amplifier or expression pedals for a discrete pedal are not counted as a pedal, they are welcome on your board though.
4. All pedals must be powered and connected to count.
5. An actual 'pedalboard' is not required, you can lay them out on the floor if you want to.

*Rules subject to change if you reason with me and the board. i am sure that i did not cover everything here, so communicate with me on here and will get this figured out.*

LETS GO!!!

What does one define as being 'budget'?

My board total is worth about £1000. Fairly poultry compared to some.

<$400-500? it is up for discussion, with a 1000EU you would likely fit in on one of the main categories.

I guess if I do it im sub 200...

Do noise gates count? Dumb question yes, but they are more tools than effects in my eyes

Also, if the amp's footswitch controlls an effect, I think it should count. Because my amp's reverb is why I haven't snagged a verb pedal yet.

yes noise gates count.

reverb on an amp doesn't either. at that point its in the amp. not a pedal

trashedlostfdup I would say sub 4 or 500 should be fine. Not sure many people here would willingly have full boards of the cheapest pedals out there, most of the cheaper stuff would be boss, digitech, mxr etcetera run with a daisy chain. And that adds up quick.

If you're taking a phone pic and your camera isn't amazing you're probably fine. My phone has a 12mp camera and after all the compression it ends up being about 3Mb and that's before resizing it.


If you're taking uncompressed pictures or RAWs then you will start hitting the double digits.

You to make a "show us your Katana/Line6 rig" thread.

Btw...after my mini practice session with that pedalboard into Laney LC15 small amp, I'm thinking going with pedals again...there's some immediacy and I swear, the delays sounded a lot more lush and realystic...plus one intermittent cable made it a nightmare

That's a shame.

It'll still be some time before I finish repainting the pedal. So if the contest goes ahead with my pedal still unpainted, then so be it.
