Here is the new pedalboard for Robben Ford put together by Vertex Effects. Mason from Vertex is doing work for some of the finest players going, including Tom Bukovac, Michael Landau, Matt Schofield … not a bad client list!
The signal chain of this board is as follows:
Interface (passive) > Korg Pitchblack Tuner > Lovepedal COT 50 Lil’ China > Tanabe Dumkudo > Vertex Boost (Prototype) > Vox Wah (Vertex Axis Mod) > Vertex Volume Pedal (modified Boss FV-500) > Vertex “Michael Landau” Modified Arion Chorus (stereo) > Vertex modified Line 6 DL-4 (stereo) > T.C. Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb (stereo) > T.C. Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb (stereo) > Interface (Stereo Outputs with Vertex Dual Output Buffers > ISO transformer on left output, and a polarity switch).
A new pedalboard for Buk designed by Vertex Effects> to approximate the previous one. The point being to have one for the road and one close to home for session work in Nashville. According to Mason from Vertex this is another huge board weighing in at close to 100lbs in the case. Quite an arm stretcher!
The signal chain is as follows:
INTERFACE (passive w/ master bypass) > Electro-Harmonix POG 2 > Boss V-Wah > Xotic RC Booster > Way Huge Green Rhino > ZVex Box of Rock (re-housed) > Nobels ODR-1 (re-housed) > Analogman King of Tone > Way Huge Pork Loin > Vertex GE-7 Equalizer > INTERFACE (effects break-out) > Peterson Strobo-Stomp Tuner > Neo Instruments Ventilator > Boss VB-2 Vibrato > Keeley TR-2 Tremolo > Dunlop Volume Pedal (Vertex modified) > Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man (Vertex modified/calibrated) > Strymon Brigadier (stereo) > Vertex EHX Stereo Memory Man w/ Hazarai (stereo) > INTERFACE (stereo outputs with ISO transformer and dual output buffers)
This is Kenny’s new pedalboard by boutique builder, Helweg. I can spot an Ibanez TS808HW, Analogman KOT, Dunlop Univibe, Analogman Bi-chorus, Chicago Iron Tycobrahe Octavia, Boss Tuner, MXR Blue Box, Butler Tube Driver, Dunlop MC-404 CAE Wah and a Jam Pedals Delay LLama … all connected via the Voodoo Labs Pedal Switcher. Nice work!

Just when you thought you wasted enough time on guitar forums, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc here comes something guaranteed to suck hours away from your life. The Pedalboard Planner, supported by Pedaltrain, is a new pedalboard mock up tool that allows you to design the pedalboard of your dreams. Just choose a Pedaltrain size and then select the pedals you’d like on your virtual pedalboard. Lots of pedal brands are available and hopefully they’ll keep adding to the list. When you’re done (are guitarists ever done?) you can save an image file of the full pedalboard. Oh my gosh this is addictive.
