I'm starting to collect some pedals (cheaper than collecting guitars and amps ) and I'm in the process of "designing" a small, modest pedal board. I have some MDF, some oak veneer plywood and regular playwood in the garage. I think MDF (although heavier by far) would stand up well to abuse. The oak veneer plywood actually takes stain really well and might be a cool look (well, the parts you can actually see). Right now all I have is: Bad Monkey - Crunchbox - ISP Decimator I'd like to add a nice chorus pedal, delay and possibly switch out the BM or just add a Timmy eventually. So, 5 or 6 pedals tops. I'm not sure if I want them all in a row (longer board) or main ones on the bottom row, effects/less used ones on top row (shorter board). I guess I could make 2 and test them out. Do you prefer your pedal boards on any type of angle? Or are you using them just as a one piece solid base? I guess just adding some strips of velcro should do the trick.
