Nice boards everyone. I kinda scaled mine back a bit for summer concert season. Big board is better in the studio. Still versatile though.
Here's the latest version of my board. The Fuzz is interchangeable, depending on the gig. But everything else stays pretty much the same:
That is the perfect name. For me, not him (though it's really an effectionate term). Ok, really, that's all of us.
Always a work in progress for you Les, isn't it
Mine is always a work in progress on purpose... I don't gig so it changes studio project to studio project. If I were to take a picture of it now, it's empty... a blank canvas waiting for a creation...Yeah, unfortunately I think so!
I built my own out of spare hardwood flooring and 1x4s I had laying around. If you don't have spare hardwood flooring laying around, a box of hardwood flooring from Home Depot will be enough to built the biggest pedal board you can imagine... And cheaper than anything you can find commercially. You also get to make it your own custom size, and it will look nice.I just received a new demo pedal that demands that my canvas be wiped clean. And practice is in 3 hours. Simplify? Diversify? Or add another color to the pallate? Wait, now I need a bigger pallate! Crap!
I appreciate the suggestion! Yeah, I love projects like that and I'm probably going to do something similar soon.I built my own out of spare hardwood flooring and 1x4s I had laying around.

Back with a few photos. I've had a bunch of pedals, but ended up letting them all go when I moved into the condo. I've been adding things here and there. I will probably pick up a few more things this year if I ever stop buying guitars.
The new and less sizeable fort.
Got rid of the big amps in favor of some smaller ones.
I don't gig so it's easy for me to just leave the pedals on the amp and switch them out as I want. The pedals are only used with the clean combo. I do, however, use the Two Notes in the effects loop of the heads to get them into my DAW. I should also note that I play at low volumes, which you can probably discern from the knobs. No knobs were altered in the photo shoot. Stuff reacts and/or sounds differently at lower volumes, so I want to make sure I point out my volume levels before I talk about how a pedal sounds.
Left to right.
Strymon Ojai (power) - I love the size and power output of this thing.
JHS Panther Cub v1.5 (analog delay) - I wanted a set it and leave it delay that was still full featured. I went with this primarily because it was the JHS offering for the category. I dig their vibe due to the warranties and the fact they are also based in Missouri.
JHS AT (drive) - This is the Andy Timmons signature pedal from JHS. It's crazy good and highly recommended if you seek a nice dirt box that's warm and airy.
Two Notes Torpedo C.A.B. - This lets me use my pedals and amps right into my interface. The Two Notes stuff is a life savor for those that want the feature set.
Vertex Effects Dynamic Distortion - I heard some demos of this and ordered one the moment I saw them available. It's quite flexible and is the only dirt pedal I used that I'd say is, and I am trying to avoid saying transparent here, but...transparent. It doesn't sound or feel like I engaged a pedal. It sounds and feels like I engaged amp gain. The amp still has the raw sparkle and punch. If I gigged I think I'd have two of these. One configured for just a hint of breakup and another for my gain.
Vertex Effects Boost - Just like the Dynamic Distortion above, except this is a boost. It's a bit pricey when you start looking at other options out there, but I'd say this has it's own vibe and it's the one preferred when trying out boosts.
