Another eye-popping gallery of pedalboards, submitted by PG readers.

When playing with is band De-illumination in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Sazzad Arefeen plugs into a TC Electronic PolyTune, which goes to a Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor and then into his 2-channel Carl Martin Octa-Switch. The Octa-Switch’s first channel is programmed as follows:

1 - MXR Zakk Wylde Phase
2 - MXR Super Comp Compressor
3 - Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer
4 - Wampler Triple Wreck Distortion
5 - Fulltone Catalyst boost/OD
6 - Boss NS-2 send on Octa-Switch input, Octa-Switch send on Boss NS-2 return, Boss NS-2 send on Octa-Switch return.
7 - MXR Zakk Wylde Black Label Chorus
8 - T-Rex Reptile 2 Delay

The Octa-Switch’s second output runs through an MXR 6-Band Graphic EQ and TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb before hitting the amp. Everything is mounted on a Pedaltrain Pro and powered by a Decibel Eleven Hot Stone. “It was pretty hard to make this board from Bangladesh,” writes Arefeen. “It took me almost two years.”
