A look into our pedalboard wiring process! This one utilizes a customer supplied Friedman pedalboard. Custom brackets, drilling mounting holes, and the wiring all shown in this one.


We made some custom brackets for this pedalboard. The brackets allow more pedals to be positioned on the top tier of the board by allowing some to overhang. The brackets support the overhang and keep the pedals from wobbling or falling. This clears up room on the pedalboard for cable routing and allows us to leave an open pedal spot for trying out other drive pedals.

All gear mounted underneath the board is drilled down and secured to the pedalboard. Any additional holes we drilled were all countersunk to ensure the dual lock and pedals sat flush on the top of the board.
