    Those pedals on huge risers and risers mid board look really awkward and kill an otherwise awesome board. :nono Just my personal opinion of course...

    Aesthetically I agree. But then again I wear a 13 quadruple E shoe. I really have no choice but to use risers if I’m gonna get my foot on a pedal. I also like lots of spacing so when I can’t see real well and I’m flustered I can get my foot where it needs to be in time, and is hassle free as possible.

    It is a great board but I understand your thoughts. I've put together some really cool home-made boards as well as commercial boards and they still don't look as professional as some of these. Part of the problem is I like to substitute pedals and move things around, thus custom cable lengths becomes an expense and all those cool looking cable tie downs have to be shuffled around etc. After a year or two it starts really looking crappy. The other problem is skill/experience. @RACKDOCTOR consistently, IMHO, makes the best looking boards around. He has perfected his skill with substantial experience, learned from his mistakes, and does it for a living plus he has talent. Only making 3-4 boards after joining TGP I am not in that league....yet :D

    I would like to build a board with access to unlimited cable, plugs and cable mounts etc. on a clean workbench with a couple pictures of @RACKDOCTOR's boards hung up for inspiration one day but I've yet to retire. First thing I gotta do is decide on the set of pedals I want on a permanent board though as I have about 40-50 pedals. :eek:

    This looks sweet. Can you give us a rundown of how the signal chain works as it looks like you’ve got the KoT in a switcher. Thanks

    I think your board looks pretty great! Although I have no direct experience of these particular pedals i am familiar with most of them from other sources (like TGP!). Pretty solid choice of pedals I think.

    Thanks! They all sound the way I want them to it’s the ridiculous vanity side that tells me they don’t “look” cool enough.

    I figure if Eric Johnson can be concerned with battery brand Then funky54 can be concerned with the color wheel.

    That is awesome. I am guessing whoever made that used to be a Telecoms Exchange Cabler....or similar.
