    VERTEX - 12" x 24" Expandable Monster Pedalboard

    Here's a pedalboard that I did for my good friend Ken Vople of Ultra Sound Amp Sales in New York.

    Ken wanted a board that he could use for an upcoming Gospel record that he's recording and for some other projects. The intention of the board was to make an extremely compact pedalboard, with maximum expandability (it can network up to 4 amplifiers and an infinite number of effects through the effects break-out) . The dimensions of the pedalboard are 12" (deep) x 24" (wide).


    Vertex Tri-Buffer (one input buffer, three output buffers), Dry Output (splits the signal off of the guitar input buffer and sends to a amplifier without any effects for tracking purposes, specifically for mixing a dry amp back into a recording to add texture and depth to a guitar track), Effects Break-Out (separate send/return to insert a volume pedal, when desired, after the distortion pedals and before the modulation and time-based pedals), and Stereo Outputs (output buffers on both left and right outputs with an isolation transformer on the right output to prevent grounding issues and a polarity switch for optimum performance when using a stereo set up).


    Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+


    Interface (input buffer + split dry output), Kingsley Minstrel, Vertex Plexitone, T.C. Polytune, Interface (break out send/return to volume pedal), Vertex Landau Mod Arion Chrous (stereo), Strymon Timeline (stereo with expression pedal and MIDI Controller), Neunaber Stereo WET Reverb (stereo), Interface (dual output buffers on left and right outputs with ISO transformer and polarity switch)

    *MIDI Controller is from Disaster Area
    *EXP is from Pigtronix

    Heh heh heh.

    Here's an evil suggestion NAY! An evil proclamation!!!

    Make a switch bank, that relocates each pedal's stomp switches down to the bottom of the pedalboard! Get some panel mounted 2-pin connectors, open each pedal and swap them out. Then install switches, and run the wires back to the new connectors at each switch's previous location on their respective pedals.

    Then you don't have to reach your foot over all the other pedals and accidentally kick a knob out of position.

      You could just throw a true bypass loop switcher on the bottom and accomplish the same thing with a lot less work
