Custom Boards Part X - Final Testing
The final testing stage is the third phase that sees two technicians at work. The other two are the planning phase and the first testing stage. The finished ‘board has to withstand a stringent test protocol. It’s listened to, and fiddled with. We look for dodgy plugs and patch cables, as well as anything remotely loose. In some cases a little dirt may have gotten stuck to the plugs. If there’s anything at all amiss, we will notice it at the latest, when the signal generator is feeding its signals into the ‘board. Once we are finally satisfied that the system lives up to our exacting standards – and only then – will we sign off on the pedalboard, and give it our Custom Boards seal of approval.
