Pedalboards -n- Pedalboards

Posted in Stuff on April 27, 2010 by bigsmokey

Hey Musicians- Tired of looking foolish dragging a giant flightcase loaded with a stadium sized pedalboard into small room gigs? There is hope. For a very affordable price I can make you a custom vintage-vibed wood pedalboard to meet your small room needs. No more fighting for space on The Family Wash stage and catching hell from the pedal steel player. I use pine board or birch plywood with a urethane finish for durability. I stain to color or paint solids, and drill to match your pedal layout. Turnover is seven days if I am in town.

Here are photos of my current pedalboard, a knotty pine top, poplar sides and a western amber finish; and a custom pedalboard that I mounted into a vintage western briefcase for Derek Hoke. If you are interested, please contact me.
