Over the last 35 or so years, I’ve gone through quite a few pedalboards. From literally having pedals velcroed to a piece of plywood in the 70’s/early 80s to a rack of gear with MIDI switching in the 80’s/90’s to having four different pedalboards until recently. I lost those four boards this summer. The upside (if there ever is an upside to getting robbed) is that you are forced to look at what you need. And right now, I need less. My two new “pedalboards” in the photo below (acoustic on the left and electric on the right) are pretty darn minimalistic and I’m going to try to keep them (mostly) that way.
