If you’ve ever tried to lug around a bunch of pedals to a gig, you know how useful a pedalboard can be. However, pedalboards can be very expensive. If you’re adventerous and want to save some money, you might want to try building one yourself! Rob Hampton of Heartwood Guitar did just that, and he detailed the build on his blog.
All I needed was a way to transport all my pedals without having to set them up and break them down every trip. Also, I’d shelved some of my effects—a wah, a volume pedal—because I couldn’t be bothered to fool with them whenever I wanted to move my rig. The pedalboard would finally give me the excuse to dust off those really useful effects and integrate them permanently into my signal chain.
