    I'm estimating my main board, inc. cost of the board itself, power, cabling, and fasteners will soon reach $1,100. Just curious to see where this fits with TGP averages.(You can include gear purchase plans up to one year, but rack gear is excluded.) Not counting my rack, my main board is under $400 right now, but will likely be $1,100 by the end of the year.

    Yeah I started to add all of my board up and it was in the thousands. And I am thinking of adding more.

    Here's a new wrinkle: if you're over $2,800, you must post a pic!

    Quick, GAT, plug-in and play to chase away those blues! It reminds me of the "Casa Bonita" episode of South Park: "Well, was it worth it Cartman?"...."T-o-t-a-l-l-y...."

    Although I've gone through several thousands of dollars worth of pedals .. I settled on an OD and a Boost which cost me less then $200 together.

    Not including pedals, my board cost probably around $5000, or a little more.

    (This is what i can recall off the top of my head):

    2200 NGM custom pedalboard
    1000 ICELED UFO computerized lighting system, custom modified
    300 various hardware for board (wood, paint, velcro, glue, power strips)
    500 Dunlop Brick (x5)
    300 disco ball mirror sheets
    200 supplies for disco ball mirror enclosure
    300 George L wire/connectors
    150 various postage/UPS costs
    50 Loooper custom signal splitter for ICELED light system
    30 Computer power supply/fan
    25 digital clock

    With pedals, it's easily over $10,000 at this point and i'm still not finished acquiring pedals for it.

    Yeah, I have other pedals that I can't fit. I purposely keep the same board so I don't have more room.

    The funny thing is, I mainly use amp distortion and just a hint of delay!

    Pedal Power 2
    Footswitch for Ultimate Attenuator
    Footswitch for Axess head switcher
    Lava cables
    Pedal board and case

    Yeah, that's about $3200 not counting the Ultimate and Axess

    Holy cow, man. Your two boards look busier than a Guitar Center display case! All you need now is a sign that reads "Ask about our layaway policy.":BEER

    My main gigging board is about $2150. My plan is to add a secondary board with a Voodoo Labs Pedal Power AC, a Rotosphere and a TZF with a EV-5 expression pedal. I have the pedals, just need the board and power supply.
