When I look at this forum, I see a forum that is much more fractured than other guitar forums. So, I thought a way to change the atmosphere would be to host a pedalboard competition!
The categories would be:
Best small board (3-5 pedals)
Best medium board (6-9)
Best Large board (10 +)
And then, we could do subcategories like neatest board, biggest fanboy board etc, etc...
So, post in this thread any ideas or anything, and then PM me a picture of your board with your username somewhere in the picture (written on a piece of paper is probably best) and what category you would like to enter.
I'd be really interested in getting this thing started!
If the mods could sticky this, that'd be great!
Deadline is one week from now! (Next monday) April 28th.

Um...I kinda mean pedalboard as in a board with individual effects pedals on them.
But I guess you could enter the small board competition...anyone else?

Wait, do you mean the actuall pedals or just the board?

I'll go for the small board (i use 4 pedals)

I mean the whole package, but obviously emphasis on the pedals

Sure, just PM me a picture.

Oh, and I forgot to explain the voting. Once I have a sufficient response and a suitable amount of pictures, I'll start a thread and everyone will vote for their favourite from each category, and then I'll do one final shootout with the finalists.

I keep my pedals all loose, but I suppose I could forward you a pic of the tangled mess.

Post the boards in the thread using IMG code, and then once the deadline is reached, make a new thread with a poll. Thats kinda the only good way to do it.

Lame about the camera, fine about the wood. I don't actually have a pedalboard; it doesn't really matter.
Quote by thellamaking
Wait, would the footswitch for my Laney be classed as a Pedal?

Uh...no. Do you have any other pedals though? I'll get back to you on that though.

Sorry man, but thats totally pointless.

And is there any interest in cleanest board, biggest fanboy board etc?
#24
so how is the judging done, by pictures of how cool they look, or by the sounds they create?

Well, it will be forumite-driven. So people just vote on what board they like best, depending on what ever factor they deem appropriate.

However, if I do decide to do the "Biggest Fan boy board", and the "Cleanest Board" categories, then people will obviously vote on the board that is the cleanest or has the most evidence of fan boy-ness.

Yeah sure, dirtiest board would be great. I'd obviously need at the very least two board per category to run it.

COME ON PEOPLE, PM ME! I need your pictures and whatever category you wish to enter. If you want to enter one of the "whimsical" categories as well as best small, medium, large or whatever, thats fine too. I'm going out now, but I expect my inbox to be full when I get home.
#28
reets, im in for medium. can i not just post a pic here?

i doubt i'll win, cuz theyre not in an expensive name brand flight case i never move them though

that and its a bit messy

depending on how long the competition runs i might angle them and run cables underneath, just for the 1337ness

theyre on 2 cunningly scrounged lovely beech effect boards though

I wish I could man, but my board is slim pickins, all I could win is Lamest Board. I'm a minimalist as far as fx. The less needed to get a sound, the better for me. I do love looking at other people's boards though, I have nothing against a huge chain at all, it's all about the end results to me.
