@Pepe - I would have included the overdrive pedal you sent on the tour a couple of years ago, however, it is in deep storage and impossible to get to right now.
Nice to hear that you considered putting it on the board. ;)

Very cool!
I have a massive board I built in the mid 90s when I was a 25 year old that didn't mind moving large, heavy gear. It's 3/4" ply, approx 3'x4'. Loaded, it's about 75 pounds, but hundreds of sounds!
I need to find something along the lines of what you have here, as it would fit everything nicely and be way less cumbersome.

I had about 10 pedals on a piece of hardwood plank for the longest time (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=10&start=80#p3352). I found I was adding pedals at the front of back of the chain regularly.

When this board came up at the local Cash Converters I let it sit there for 6 months until the price came down to a level I couldn't refuse. I would never have paid full retail for something like this but at the used price it will make a big difference.

The 9VDC regulator is fed from a linear (not switched-mode) wall-wart with a nameplate rating of 12VDC and 700mA. Unloaded the wall-wart puts out 18VDC.

I wanted to ensure the entire power-supply chain was linear, hence the linear wall-wart into a 7809 regulator.

Cool board Laurie!
What is the pedal left of the 000 serial HZD?

Great effort Laurie! I love to geek out with the explanations, ordering etc. :D

My biggest struggle is pedal power, eliminating noise but not spending a fortune doing so!

I've always built my own power supplies for boards. Including the aluminum box and all the cables total cost less than USD$35

Building them myself i can use huge filter capacitors and control cable lengths and runs.
