Do you know about the biggest guitar pedalboard? The record-setting pedalboard has a total of 319 effects pedals on a total of thirty-four individual pedalboards. Who created it?
Meet guitarist and YouTuber, Rob Scallon. Rob Scallon decided to create the world’s biggest guitar effect pedalboard that comprises of 319 effect pedals on 34 different pedalboards. He did this project in collaboration with the Sweetwater campus. An associate of Scallon joked, ‘What could possibly go wrong?’ He also answered his own question by saying, ‘The same thing that could go wrong when you put four pedals in a row.’
To complete the project, the team took on the help of the pedal manufacturers and people that are in the business of making the pedal systems. Scallon said, ‘We have the best experts here.’ The team kicked off the project by starting to organize the pedals by type. A rule that the team followed was to make sure that no pedal was being duplicated. The second rule that the team had to follow was to make sure that all of the pedals were in a single signal flow. Afterward, they had to conduct a demonstration where they had to show that all of the pedals worked and final play a gig.
That was quite a lot to achieve, but the team was able to pull it all off quite successfully. Even the gig was a success! However, that is about all that we will be telling you over here. For the rest of the project and details, you will have to check out the video below. So, what are you waiting for? The record-breaking gig featuring the world’s largest guitar pedalboard is something that should not be missed. Check out the video below and do let us know what you think of it!
