hey guys!

So I've built the guitars - I built the amp - I built the effects pedals... Now I have to build a board and a controller.

I got the pedalsync 9 system from molten voltage. I need a custom enclosure for it, a 15x4x2(ish) to house a switch for the tuner, the master controller, and 10 switches for the pedalsync stuff. Is there a place that can custom build an enclosure for not that much money?

More importantly, I have a lot of pedals - and it looks like sizable pedalboards are expensive. I'm thinking mine will need to be about 2 feet wide by 1.5 feet tall.

Is it worth it to build my own - are there templates online or best practices? I'm at the very beginning stages here, and there's a lot of riff raf on a lot of boards that's kinda hard to sift through.

Anyone have experience with this stuff?

This one has served me well for years of medium duty use. About the size you are looking for $100.

^^I was just going to recommend checking out Rondo Music for decent gear at good prices. Wink

Get to it! Then sell it to me for under $150.

Needs to be 25" wide by 18" high. I like purple. Wink hehe.

I think the build vs. buy may depend on how "finished" a board you're looking for. I built my own (http://www.reranch.com/reranch/viewtopic.php?t=53981&highlight=pedal) but by the time I sourced all of the parts I don't think I saved much money. I actually built two to help spread the costs of shipping and as noted in my post, if I had to do it again, I'd just go straight to the NYC Pedalboards site.

On the other hand, it's always nice to have something you've built yourself. If you're interested, PM me and I'll send you what I can find on my build as far as dimensions and sources.
