Introduction: Simple Guitar Pedal Board

Picture of Simple Guitar Pedal Board

Rather than blowing the price of a new pedal on a pedal board I decided to make my own and put the money I saved towards a new DD-7. The board is made from pieces of pine from our back shed. The thin pieces are 18 x 45mm the wide piece at the bottom is an off cut from a shelf and is 18mm x 140mm. The five pieces are joined together with PVA glue and short wood screws then sprayed black. 
On the front I ran strips of loop velcro with matching strips of hook velcro on the backs of the pedals. I joined the two volume type pedals to the board by running cable ties round and over short lengths of bamboo cane.
If was going to make this again I would replace the 140mm strip with three more 45mm pieces. The gaps between the wood are useful for threading cables.

Ahh the Behringers. Great electronics. Good sounds. It's a shame the cases they are in break. I tend to put the electronics of em inside a better case.

This looks great! And what an awesome way to save some money! I would know, I just spent all my guitar money on a brand-new case, so I'll be looking for cheap equipment now. Thanks for putting this up, man! :)
