Custom Boards Part IX - Lead Dress
Attaching all the cabling to the pedalboard frame is the most demanding, and most fiddly, phase in a project. But it’s also the most rewarding! It’s kind of addictive to fiddle around with the adhesive cable-retaining clips. I’ve been making my ‘boards in this way for years. Each finished project is like a little piece of art, and easily recognisable as the work of one specific maker. Sometimes I stare at a finished ‘board for several minutes, before deciding to try and change the position of one of the clips. Sometimes I even change it back to the way it was. To me attaching the cables is a spiritual thing, like imbuing the pedalboard with the best possible kind of feng shui.
