Simple (linear) Pedal Board

Post by yardbird mac » Sat Apr 06, 2013 10:11 am

Does anyone make a simple, preferably flat, or minimal slope, pedal board? Here's what I need... Due to a partial amputation to my left foot I have some minor balance issues. I need a pedal board that is linear (not tiered).

My effects chain for my FENDR DRRI is: Tuner - Wah - Compressor - Overdrive (1) - Overdrive (2) - 10 band EQ - Analog Delay - Stereo Chorus.

My Effects chain for the MESA/Boogie Express 5:50 (going through the effects loop) is: Tuner - Wah* - Compressor - 10 band EQ - Analog Delay - Stereo Chorus.

Another thought... is there a foot controller that would allow me to use these effects without mounting them on a pedal board (my apologies for my ignorance on this one!).

* In this case, the Wah won't be going through the effects loop.

Look for loopers. Like Rocktron Loop 8 floor. They can usually bypass effects pedals and give rudimentary amp control. Some are patch-programmable so you can use fewer switch presses to get multiple FX changes at the same time.

I realize this thread is super old but something like this would do the job:

You basically have 6 FX loops that you can turn on and off at will. You can leave the FX pedals on the whole time and just engage the loop when you want to use them. Its a pretty cool piece of gear!
