#monopfx: Best pedalboards of June 2022

June has come and gone. Have you purchased any new pedals this month? Perhaps you have discovered a new pedalboard hack?

Maybe you’re visiting this blog because you’re seeking inspiration for your own tone adventure?

Whatever your reasons are for dropping by, come join us as we take a look at some of our favorite pedalboards from the month of June.

The Lite Heavyweights

Do you believe that less is more? Musicians that belong to this camp turn to boards like our Pedalboard Lite to keep things trim on their tone hunt. No extra baggage is allowed here — every effect unit counts.

Justin Brewer’s Pedalboard Lite is giving major Stormtrooper vibes. This #monopfx is nothing but simple. Two pedals – HX Stomp and Keeley Compressor Mini.

All the tones you need for an acoustic gig in a single carry.

May the tone be with you.

Pedalboard Classics

For the players that want the essentials and a little more. Here are our favorite Small and Medium builds of the month.

This incredible #monopfx was built by GitRig Customs with scrupulous attention to detail. Each pedal was laid out carefully allowing for easy access to every knob. Take a peek underneath this Pedalboard Small and you’ll find cabling work that is completely unreal. This definitely cured our OCD. As we all know, getting multiple pedals to fit on a smaller pedalboard is quite a feat, but the guys at GitRig Customs still managed to pull it off perfectly.

All the pedals on this board are the stuff of dreams for pedal nerds and it certainly looks like a compact all-in-one ampless stereo rig.

Here’s a complete breakdown of this stompbox assembly: a Wampler Tumnus, TC Electronic Sub n Up, Protein Dual Overdrive, Mooer Yellow Comp, Walrus Audio MAKO M1, Strymon Timeline and BigSky, and the Line 6 HX Stomp.

The end result? Possibly one of the neatest Pedalboard Small builds we’ve seen in a long while.

Jonathan Cariaga is back at it again with another comprehensive #monopfx build.

A closer look at his Pedalboard Small will reveal a quadruple Strymon setup – the Flint, Dig, Mobius and the BigSky. Other pedals include Jonathan’s tone essentials like the Vemuram Jan Ray, JHS The Kilt, Boss Waza Craft DC-2w, Origin Effects Cali76 and the TC Electronic Spark.

We can only imagine the massive ambient sounds coming out of this #monopfx. If you’re ever in Belfast, look out for Jonathan‘s future shows, and don’t forget to tag #monopfx and @monocreators on Instagram.

All the way in the land Down Under, this #monopfx build is done by the folks at White Sound Design in Sydney, Australia.

Of course, the brain of this pedalboard is the Morningstar MC6, controlling the HX Stomp and the Strymon Timeline for quick and seamless preset changes. This #monopfx also sports the Xotic EP Booster, Dunlop DVP4 and the Wampler Pedals The Paisley Deluxe.

Another thing worth mentioning is they have drilled out the “O” in MONO on the pedalboard’s back panel to make way for the Zuma’s IEC output. The immaculate cable routing also deserves notable mention. Well-thought-out cable work is always handy when troubleshooting any particular pedal chain.
