    Good luck! I have mine laid out have my power supplies but the layout changes daily which is messing with how I want to form my pedal board.

    I'm kind of expecting that too once I get it all figured out, maybe not that often but likely to change. That's why they use velcro I guess?
    Seeing everyones layouts though is a big help.

    One thing I like about the Temple Audio board is the mounting system that uses a sort of giant thumbscrew to keep the pedals mounted. It makes changes very easy.

    Pedalboards... I know they're really cool, but i hate them! :)

    I started with Tuner, Driver, Delay, Reverb and Clean Booster,
    then I passed to Tuner, Delay, and Clean Booster,
    now at Tuner and Clean Booster...

    Next step, if possible:

    Nothing.

    I feel really free when I play straight through my amp...

    If all of my amps had reverb, I doubt that I’d ever use a pedalboard. For years, I played a DRRI and that was my signal path. That’s it; a patch cord and an amp with reverb. As it is, my board has three to four pedals, one combining a Digital Delay with Hall Reverb, the second has a variety of Tape Delay and Magnetic Drum Delay emulations with Plate Reverb and a few other things. The third pedal is a Spring Reverb and, IMHO, the best sounding emulation of a Fender Tube Reverb Unit. The fourth pedal, which is not always installed, is a Tremolo, which I use when I’m not plugged into the Winfield Tremor amp. The last “pedal” is actually a latching switch which I use to control the tremolo on the Tremor amp. It also reminds me to feed the cat. :)

    My current board . Might change a few things . I like it off the floor as you all know by now I play at home and mainly sit . If I stood and gigged I would still prefer to have it on a stand . I just think it's unprofessional to keep bending over and adjust the pedals if need be IMG_1940.JPG IMG_1939.JPG

    I’ve thought of something similar, myself.

    Board is PedalTrain NOVO 18
    Stand is made by " On Stage " . On Stage Mix-400 Audio Mixer Stand . Think I bought it from MF or GC , but I bought on line not in store . About $115
    Although is rolls very well , be careful if you lift it as top half may pull away from the bottom half . Also depending on arraignment of pedals , there is a rail on the side of it . You would want to make sure your guitar cable does not interfere with the rail when going into the first pedal . My guitar cord goes to the first pedal which is my tuner pedal IMG_1943.JPG IMG_1942.JPG IMG_1941.JPG ( note the photos ) Mine is adjusted about my waist high .
