We asked PG faithful to show us their pedalboards, and you delivered! In honor of our annual pedal blowout, we bring you 30 of our readers' personal stomping grounds.
"My messy collection of pedals needs to be tidied up a little bit, along with buying an actual board (Pedaltrain Pro 4 most likely), but as I'm not yet in a band, the pedals don't need to be transported all the time," says Michael Bauwens of Belgium. His chain goes as follows: Guitar (Gibson ES-335 or Tele MIM or non-Fender Strat), Boss TU3 tuner, Vox V847 Wah, Dunlop Uni-Vibe (plus expression pedal to the right of the wah), Boss DS1 Keeley Modded distortion, Dunlop JHF1 Fuzz Face, EHX Big Muff Pi w/ tone wicker, Behringer EQ700 (simply used for a little bass-mid boost), Rocktron Hush pedal, EHX POG2, Line 6 FM4 (plus expression pedal), MXR Carbon Copy Delay, EHX Nano Holy Grail, Boss RC-3 Looper (plus Boss dual footswitch), and into a Fender Blues Deluxe. The Electro-Harmonix Nano Bassballs (for his bass) goes to input B of the Boss RC-3 and then to a little Fender Rumble 15. It's all being fueled by a T-Rex FuelTank Chameleon. "Not all pedals on my rig are essential, but I like to experiment with sounds and having fun with what you do is what's important, right?"
