    I was just wondering what you guys use to store/display your pedals, while keeping dust/dirt off?

    While I hate referring to my pedals as a "collection" (as I'm not a real collector, per se, nor do I wish to be one as I actively use all of them), I keep them on this cool glass shelving unit that I got at Ikea. Looks really cool, but dust does attract to them... maybe get something similar and cover it w/ plastic wrap? lol. :messedup

    If I'm not stepping on them, they're closed up in the pedalboard or in a box in the closet. I don't understand the "display" part....you mean like in a glass case or something?

    I think he means something like a case, seeing as he doesn't want dust to get in... I just have them "on display" 'cause it makes more sense to me having them ready to go at any time since I'm constantly swapping them out on an minutely basis, lol. Then again, ones like "THE ONE" need to be displayed, LOL. You know what I'm talking about !
    :D

    Yeah.
    Whatever i put in boxes (or cases when it comes to guitars), i have a bad habit of not using.
    I like leaving all my pedal out so i can quickly play around with them.

    I sewed me up a bunch of little quilted fabric 'pedal cozys' to keep the dust off.

    This is the best thread ever. Hilarious, yet tasteful.

    I couldn't imagine displaying pedals. That would be like displaying screwdrivers or pliers. Play the guitar, people!
