some racks...

Post by mibu » Sat May 30, 2009 12:13 am

hi guys!

first I want to introduce myself - I'm mibu, from romania/europe. I'm a guitar player, guitar tech, racks builder, amps tech and graphic designer.

here are some of the racks and pedalboards I have done in the last time (all controlled by a Ground Control Pro unit):

thanks, man! I build racks since 1998... but don't understand this wrong - in romania the rack awareness is still not at the level of western lands. there are not that many guitar players wanting to have something like this, primarily because a deep lack of knowledge in the field. and this is what I'm doing for so many years - trying to raise the awareness and the level of professionalism of those guys making a living playing the guitar (and not only...).

laboga cabs are not bad, but nothing special also. they come loaded with china made V30's - they are by far not my favs, but in the case of the rack pictured above they were a good match.

hi, nice rack. any ideas on cleaning up the wiring for pedals in racks? i am going to be using two gcx switchers with 12 pedalsin three rack drawers or shelves, i want the two switchers together in the rack. i amm thinking of making some small patchbays to put with the pedals hooking the pedals up to them and making some snakes to go to the switchers from the drawers. i am a bit obsessive compilsive when it comes to cables being tidy. i am actually making some pedalboards to put in the drawers so that there will be no cable mess on top as all the wiring will be under the boards, kinda like the trailer trash boards. any better ideas?

man, you don't have to worry about those cables. just make a neat wiring and use those plastic catchers to anchor the cabling to the drawer bottom. and leave enough cable length at the back.
here is an example of a rack I have built for another client (cables are monorail from Evidence Audio):

What a shame. A guy on another forum had some HD video using a T/D eggy and switched to an Axe-fx in another video and you can hear it lost that warmth to it. I recomended him use the eggy in the Axe-fx loop.

You can get the cable mounting bases (1"x1" pk of 100) from Home depot or Lowes in the electrical dept.for $5 if you are in the USA.
