#monopfx: Best pedalboards of October 2022

What new effects pique your interest? Or perhaps you’ve changed it up completely to chase after your new musical inspiration?

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 October.

Pedalboard Classics

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

Our Pedalboard Carbon is a stunner when done right and that’s exactly what we are seeing from this immaculate arrangement from KMA Machines.

Quality over quantity is the name of the game here. This signal chain gets its reverb and echoes via the KMA Cirrus, and octave effects courtesy of the KMA Moai Maea. Tone for days!

Jonathan Cariaga makes an appearance on the blog once again and this time he shows off his newly updated #monopfx setup.

This Pedalboard Medium houses his trusty “Strymon Trio” – The Strymon Mobius, Volante and the BigSky. Here’s a complete breakdown of this setup:

  1. Origin Effects Cali76
  2. TC Electronic Polytune Mini 3
  3. BOSS ES-5
  4. MXR Poly Blue Octave
  5. Analogman King Of Tone
  6. Vemuram Jan ray
  7. JHS Pedals The Kilt V2
  8. Boss Waza Craft VB-2w
  9. Vertex Effects Boost

Finished with clean and efficient cabling, this #monopfx is every guitarist’s dream.

Chris Cochran sure knows his way around a comprehensive #monopfx build. You might’ve seen his #monopfx builds in our past blog posts but this time he is back with some new pedals.

What’s great about this board is the easy engagement of pedals. Worrying about bumping pedal knobs when stomping on your foot switches is a thing of the past now, thanks to the GigRig Quartermaster loop switcher. With each pedal labeled clearly, you’ll never miss a note on your next guitar solo

A closer look at his Pedalboard Medium reveals a trio UAFX setup – the Astra, Starlight and the Golden. The Kingtone Blues Power, The Duellist, and the Wren and Cuff Violet World Fuzz take lead guitar duties, while MXR Script Phase 90 and the PastFX Elastic Mattress sit in the modulation department.

This #monopfx has got to be one of our favorites so far!

Here’s a build you don’t see too often. Pink is power!

There’s something special about starting afresh on a DIY-painted #monopfx for your new band. This pedalboard build by Hamish Michael is unlike anything we’ve seen before.

Hamish’s #monopfx is leaning towards the wackier side of things, running pedals like the Hologram Electronic Microcosm, Dr Scientist The Atmosphere and the Meris Polymnon, just to name a few. Other notable pedals include the Dr Scientist Frazz Dazzler, EHX Superego+, Old Blood Noise Fault V2 and Float, BOSS FV-30, The Montreal Assembly Count To Five, Hotone Krush, Chase Bliss Audio Blooper and Generation Loss MkII, Red Panda Lab Tensor, Walrus Audio M1 and R1.A #monopfx with an assembly of unconventional effects always keeps us on the lookout for more interesting and eccentric builds to feature in our next blog.
