I'm looking at building a massive pedalboard & want to see how people have tackled the 'real estate' problem. So, if you got 'em, flaunt 'em = lets see some massive pedalboards!

Serious question. What would happen to your signal if you turned all those pedals on at the same time?

Good heavens. That thing's bigger than half the counties in Texas!

I remember this - wasn't it a fundraiser for something? World's Largest Pedal Board, raising awareness for something or other.

Anyway - I don't know if this qualifies as massive, but I did manage to cram 19 pedals onto a SKB PS-45 Board once. It was ridiculous.

I built an insane pedalboard once (I'll dig out a picture later). The main upsides were that it was a very enjoyable project and its cool having so many things to play with in front of you.
The downsides were:
1. Weight - this thing was about 50kg
2. Bulk - as it was so long, I could barely get two hand around it to lift it from its side handle. I had wheels on one corner like a suitcase so could pull it along but need a second person for stairs etc. Getting into a car boot involved levering in using the bumper!
3. Expense - I had a custom case with built in angled board with upper shelf made to my spec but that cost a good £300 I think. Then you have the cables, power supplies, ways to mount them to the board etc assuming you have the pedals already.
4. This may not be a negative as I turned it into a masocistic pleasure but you get ridiculed like a mother****er! Every gig I turned up to got immediate piss taking by sound engineers/other bands etc. But i enjoyed that - you just have to join in taking the piss out of yourself for being an OCD twat with too much money on show - you ain't gonna make any hipster thrift store friends!!!
