Pedal Board

My latest Pedalboard. Took some photos of how I like to make them. None of the companies I've looked at make their pedalboards small enough for what I need, so I make them myself! :-)

I like to use these "pedal cranks" to connect the pedals. The pedals can be close together, and they never screw up at a gig.

Checking to see if the pedals fit on the plywood. All good!

The finished pedal board with everything screwed down.  The Flashback delay pedal doesn't have the metal links holding it down because it only has one large screw in the middle of the bottom, to remove the back. It's OK, though, it's being held in by the pedals on either side.  Looking good!
