Pedal boards, i'm no expert, I would quite like to build a smaller one that my current double-row Pedal Tote one which is a bit big and shit to be carting about to rehearsals and gigs.
My general feel is that the dudes from That Pedal Show have convinced a generation that they need massive switching rigs with multiple power capabilities and filters and and and...
A simple pedal train board, a decent power supply and patch cables is all most of us will ever need really.
When I finally bought a board, I made sure that I got one that was slightly on the smaller and practical transport size, so that I've been forced to make a choice about real estate and what I do or don't need. If I want something new, somethings gotta come off.
Currently run - Tuner>Volume Pedal>Vox Wah>Small Stone>AYA BM70 Fuzz>DopeFX Dazed and Confused>Shin-Ei FY6>Belle Epoch.
That plus my power brick all fits in nicely, plus cables, capos, picks and blow.
