Homemade Pedal Board

I decided to make a pedal board this past weekend, so I went to the hardware store and found a flat, rugged surface that I thought would work well as the base. I think it’s a piece of material from a stove, or exhaust vent, or something, but I’m actually not sure what it was intended to originally be used for.

I also got some 2-inch wide strips of velcro, which I attached to the surface. Then I cut squares and added them to the bottom of each pedal. I already had the 9-volt power extender, and the whole thing came together pretty quickly. Seems perfect for sitting in front of the amp, or using on the desktop. It even has some spongy material on the bottom so it doesn’t slide around.

Not sure how easy it is to follow the signal path in these images, but do you think I have these in a good order?

It’s this:

tuner > compressor > preamp > fuzz > overdrive > phaser > delay/looper > amp

One thought on “Homemade Pedal Board

  1. Way to be creative! I actually need one of those stove vent filters. 🙂 The one I had fell apart when I tried to clean all the grease off. I have no idea about how the in-between order of pedals should be, but it makes sense that the tuner would be first and the looper would be last.
