Laser-Cut Stomp Board for Guitar Pedals, with Mounted Mini-Amplifier, via @MindTribe

Have tools, make awesome. That’s the summary of this project by Kyle Tucker from Mindtribe who constructed a stomp board for guitar pedals. It’s coated with Danish oil for a beautiful finish, and even includes a mini-amplifier mounted to the board for immediate practice sound joy! Read how Kyle went from one design to the next and see some of his build shots along the way here at the Mindtribe blog. I’ve definitely been at a number of concerts and watched musicians – specifically guitarists – take minutes on end to set up their pedals, and wondered why they didn’t build a solution similar to this – the slight increase in room to transport everything around seems like a minimal trade-off for the time saved to set everything up for each practice session or performance. (Also it looks cool!)

Here at Mindtribe we have quite a few musicians spanning a wide variety of instruments. I myself have been known to hold a guitar every now and then. And sometimes I even find myself wanting to make sounds with it. I mostly play acoustic, but when I do play electric I like to be able to change the guitar’s output. I really enjoy large dynamic ranges in one song. To accomplish this, we guitarists occasionally have to make use of little metal boxes filled with electrical engineering magic, and it is often we need multiple boxes. These magic boxes of course are called effects pedals. I have been acquiring a few over the years, and now that I like to use more than 1 at a time, I felt it was a good idea to build a pedal board.
