Ask Zac Episode 28 - How you can get the most from a Grab & Go - Fly Pedalboard

April 17, 2020

For years, I lugged around a huge pedalboad that weighed as much as a combo amp. With making multiple trips to my car for all my gear, I started getting weary of the big board. Through doing the Truetone Lounge interviews, I got to see quite a few large boards, but I was most intrigued by the players that got the most from small pedalboard. The two minimalistic cats that stuck out were Guthrie Trapp, and John Leventhal. Both had small boards and both created a variety of wonderful tones with simple rigs. It was then that I decided to make my own, minimalistic grab & go board.
