    I knew I couldn't go with soldered cables, as I was going to cut the cables to length as I went along. Last fall, Mark, of Lavacable, told me had new soldless plugs on the horizon that were superior to George L's. I did wait, and here is the finished product.

    It's very easy to set up: two AC cables run from the board. Three Lavacable ELC's run to two amps and my wireless unit. The entire thing takes a couple of minutes to setup. Finally!

    The only one that is slightly out of kilter is the KOTB pedal. Not eough side to side space.

    Yea that bothered me 2! lol But it boils down to either needing one less pedal, or a bigger board. Pop out that KOTB and pop in a Fetto, that'll doit.

    Looks like you have a guitar for each pedal, How do you like the Epi Revolution ? Did you Mod it?

    Nice Board, must of pulled a few hairs setting it up.

    Bring the Timmy right down to the front edge and you'll be able to straighten out the rest of the pedals... if you want to.

    Quite a selection of drive and swirl there, very nice. I just got these Lava ELCs on my board myself, they do rock.

    FWIW, I sold Fetto after getting KOTB. But Fetto is really good.

    Pripism, my Lennon Revolution is completely stock, and it's fabulous! For the rest of you, you're a tough bunch! Remember two things:

    1. The pedals may be a bit off kilter, but the operating switch is round; so, anyway you move the pedal, the switch is a constant!

    2. Who is going to see it but me? :rolleyes:

    Whatever works for you!

    Personally, I like order... my books lined up on a shelf with the labels in the same direction, post-it notes not piled on top of each other, shoes paired and neat, not in a pile, etc.. You'll find people in both camps, and I think you've just found some people who like things a little more neat than you. I mean, you went through the trouble of paying out the butt for a nice board, and hiding all the wiring to make it look neat... it just seems weird then that you didn't take the next step and... actually make it look neat.

    Who's going to see it but you? - How about all the people for whom you posted pictures of it on the internet to see? :p

    Ben, actually, I am a neatnik. Most likely, I'll give the board a once over when I have time, but right now, I am really pleased that the signal passes through each pedal fine, and it is SO quiet. Mark, you've created a great plug and cable combination.
