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

André Maquera sure knows how to pack the pedals onto his Pedaltrain Pro board! The signal from his Line 6 X2 wireless runs through a TC Electronic PolyTune on its way to a Rocktron Patchmate Loop 8, programmed to provide these loops:

1. Ernie Ball wah
2. Wampler Ego Compressor
3. MXR Phase 90
4.Carl Martin PlexiTone and MXR EQ
5. Wampler Hot Wired (version 1) combined with Ego Compressor (“my lead tone”)
6. Way Huge Pork Loin overdrive
7. Bogner Ecstasy Red (or other distortion)
8. Zoom G2 Nu (for modulation and acoustic guitar simulation)

From there André’s signal hits a TC Electronic Flashback X4 and a TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb on its way to a pair of single-channel, 18-watt Haas amps. There’s a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus beneath the board.

Checking out the pedalboards of our fellow players never gets old—and there’s so much creativity on display in this latest batch.You’ll encounter classic effects deployed in imaginative ways … ambitious switching/effect loop schemes … and a vast menagerie of hip boutique boxes. Thanks for the ongoing inspiration, readers!
