Little Holey Vengeance Pedal Board – Followup 1

I mounted my power supply and did a little cabling tonight. I thought I’d post a few photos for anyone interested. There’s not much on the board yet, but you get the idea.

I chose the tried and true Voodoo  Labs Pedal Power 2+ as my PSU.

Strapped in

I strapped it in with a nylon web strap so it can be easily removed to get to the switches on the bottom if the need arises.

I cut this off of a longer piece and melted the end so it didn’t unravel. I finally got to use the heat knife attachment on my soldering iron.

I also adhered some of the same close celled foam I used inside the channel strip to make sure the PSU didn’t slip at all.

Rough PSU wiring

This shows some basic wiring and pedal layout. The PSU wires are pretty long but I may have to make some custom wires to reach the far right side of the board. Voodoo Labs sells all the parts for them. Notice that there is room for a second PSU if it is needed below the shelf. Also I discovered that if I ever want to really pack some pedals on that board I can fit two full rows of the smaller pedals across the bottom. They’ll fit fine directly above one another. Lining them up with the holes could be tricky but I can always drill more!!

These are just some examples of how I’ll cable the board. I intend to keep it all color coded for identifying each loop’s signal chain.

That’s it for now. I’ll post some updates periodically as my pedal collection grows.
