PEDAL BOARD DOCTOR
If you’re a pedal board novice or like many of us and have been playing for years and still continue to get your ever expanding collection of effects out one by one at every gig and take longer than the drummer to set you gear up then you need the pedal board Doctor. From choosing the right board, getting the layout right and then powering it all up the pedal board doctor can help you customize your board to meet all your switching requirements.
The prospect of building your own board can seem overwhelming, especially if your collection has grown out of control so we are here to help. All you need to do is bring your pedals in to Westside MI on the Denmark Street day Out, Saturday November 28th, choose a board from our extensive collection of Pedaltrain or T-Rex boards. Then choose the right power supply to fit your needs, custom cut your patch cables to fit and then sit down with the doctor and get it built!
We keep everything needed, Pedal Train & T-Rex pedal boards, power supplies by Voodoo lab, T-rex & MXR. Voodoo Lab switching systems. We also have all the other pedal board essentials such as MXR & George L’s patch cables, Velcro, link cables as well as LOTS of different effects if you need to add something tasty to your board.
