Very Simple Pedalboard Build [With Yet More Pedal Indecision & A Gig Too!]

Published 18 Mar 2022

Welcome to the show! In this video I pick up from a previous show where Dan helped me pick a small bunch of pedals for an upcoming show. For a recap, that video is here:

Having chosen the pedals it’s time to build the board, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to go over some pedalboard building basics.
Erm, except then I choose some different pedals… and then change them again! If nothing else it’s a reminder why simple, modular pedalboards can be so much fun - swap things in and out as you choose with minimum hassle.
Anyway, having finally decided, I do a little bit of pre-gig prep and head to the show!
Massive thanks to Neville Marten and Adrian Nash for having me along at their show. Also thanks to Komedia Bath for being such an awesome venue with wonderful, helpful people.

Why did the Clockwork Echo stop working? No idea. I will investigate when I get some time.

Enjoy the show!
