Hi guys!
I've been considering making a custom pedal board and I was wondering if anyone on here has done that before and has any tips or advice?
I was looking into getting a whammy pedal but they are pretty expensive and idk if I could afford one. Do you guys think they are worth it?

Anyways other than those two things what are everyone's favorite pedals? I'm looking to try out some new sounds. I currently only have a distortion, chorus, and octave pedal.

Let me know what you think!
Thanks

As far as pedals I definitely have always on its probably Tc electronic Hall of fame reverb and GLC digital delay.

As far as my favourite pedals go it's probably my vertex steel string, mad professor twimble and tc electronic mojo mojo overdrive.

I do have a pedal board with all the pedals I use in it but the board itself isn't exactly custom. I also have no experience with a whammy so can't help you there unfortunately 😅

    I have two pedals i will never let go of: My Dunlop John Petrucci Wah, and my TC Electronic Flashback 2 Delay. I cannot compliment these pedals enough. They are, in my humble opinion, the two best of their kind. Funny thing is, I'm saving up a considerable amount of money to buy a ton pedals when the SGS comes out. Speaking of, any update on the new amp?

    Depends on what kind of music you play. You might want to add a (Tube-Screamer) pedal. That add more gain, sounds more agressive. I have the (tube-screamer mini) because its smaller. And for the whammy, it worth it in my case. But again, depends on what you do with your guitar lol.

    For the effects, I have a Boss MS-3. It's a multi-effect switcher. Cost a lot of money but I'm very happy to have it. With that, you can have a lot of effect like (reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, rotary, and many more) all in one unit. Very cool for live performance.

    I purchased the board 2 or 3 years ago. I got a good deal. Make sure you get good.cables that won't tangle up. My effects mixer cost me 500 or so dollars but came with the whole board package. I just had to buy the board itself. Was a great promotion.

    Made a pedalboard that turned out a bit heavy for my taste so I use it as like a display platform for my fav wah pedals, I recommend just diving into it and learn from any mistakes.

    my personal favorite pedals:

    I got a boss ms3 recently so Im going to take one of them off and then add a wah (Probably my crybaby from hell. although my favorite wah is the weeping demon, its just a bit large for pedalboard)
    Also a RAT and ts9 (or ts7) are must haves!

    I love my digitech drop Pedal. Changing Tuning without retuning your guitar! I also have a wah Pedal.

    Heard a lot of good Things about the Horizon precision Drive if you're into metal. Also Syn is releasing his first Pedal 😏😏

    I have a couple pedals. It's really good if you want to make your own tone. Just go with whatever you want according to what you like playing and your musical tastes.

    No updates on the new amp. At contest time, Syn had hinted at promo pics by year's end, and that has not materialized, so presumably the tentative ship date in February or so has slipped as well.

    Gives me time to get a few more pedals to pump through it. I haven't had pedals since I moved to my first rack unit in 1991 or 1992, so it should be interesting.
