Given that we punters here at tgp have sleepless nites wondering if our timmy or ocd or ldo would sound that much better with directional patch leads, i thought that its time for the ultimate in pedalboard pornography...

Show us ur neat boards! The ultimate corksniffers wetdream! something that looks like its airbrushed to perfection! Where every cable is perfectly placed or hidden away... Like those trailer trash gallery photo's... :)

My L.A. Sound Design board is wired so beautifully it is like a work of art:

I have swapped out the Hartman fuzz for a Durham Crazy Horse, the Smokey Signal is gone and replaced with an XTS precision Multi-Drive and the COT Lil China is replaced with an original silver box COT50 with the "50" stamp on the top. Amazing tones from this board and quiet too.

Yeah, I'm a neat freak. Everything has to be at perfect right angles, with no cords showing...

Thanks Michael-it sounds equally beautiful. I am a dirt fanatic thus the reason for the 7 dirt boxes although each has a specific role-the Octavia is obvious, the Crazy Horse does a great thing with a big brass slide and open G, the MkIII is a perfect, non-woofy tonebender but I have recently discovered thanks to TGP's smogfalls, that it nails a classic Billy G. ZZ Top tone. The XTS is the perfect fat, juicy Tube Screamer and my go to lead pedal while the Textosterone is a secondary lead pedal and also gret for rhythm comping with or without some beautiful boost help from the COT. The plain silver pedal is a Pablo Chupacabra from Mexico that our own wichit of Guitar25 got me-it is a prototype and does a nice thick Knopfler-esque double stop Money for Nothin' tone and also wails for screaming distoriton solos-it has so much headroom that running the level much beyond 9 a.m. is out of the question. The Nova Delay sounds gorgeous in the parallel loop of the X-Blender-like a rack delay system and the Echomachine is the perfect Echoplex impersonator.

JMarck, thanks for the compliments. Anyone who ever gets to the Philly area is welcome to check it out. David Phillips and Matin Golub at L.A. Sound Design out in Burbank deserve all the credit for the build. It is even better now with the changes mentioned in my first post-the Smokey Signal was a great Dumble pedal but the Multi-Drive goes from TS-9 on steroids to Eric Johnson tones with ease and the new older still COT50 is so cool-expensive but cool! The Crazy Horse is also very versatile and different from most fuzzes. I forgot to mention in earlier posts, the Empress Trem is phenomenal and has so many options it is unreal!

nakleh, that board is very clean, where are the power cables or are you running batteries?

My DIY IKEA Gorm pedalboard is pretty neat. It's also really NEAT!

There are almost no exposed cables or wires, except for the tips of the connectors:
