WATCH: Sasha Ivantic builds the ultimate wet/dry pedalboard

Building the perfect pedalboard is the bane of every musician’s existence, especially when you’re trying to fit every pedal you own on it. Thankfully, there are smarter and better ways to alleviate this problem.

Sasha Ivantic shows us how he optimizes his Pedalboard Small setup using only the essentials, future-proofing his tones like a pro. Picking out pedals can be challenging at times for a pedalboard with smaller real estate, but Sasha only chooses the effects that he needs and that will work well with his amplifiers. Once you’ve shortlisted your best pedals, it’s all a matter of elimination.

If you watch the video at 15:34, he cautiously arranged the bottom row of his #monopfx with the Kingtone Octaland, Dominion Electric Fuzz, Reeves Electro ZO, Spaceman Effects Redstone, ThorpyFX The Dane, and the Korg Pitchblack Mini.

The rest of his well-thought-out #monopfx features other powerhouses like the Neo Instruments Mini Vent II, Drybell Vibe Machine V3, JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk, JAM Pedals Delay Llama Mk. 3, and the GFI System Skylar. Finally, power is supplied by the Strymon Zuma and the Ojai.

Jump to 43:35 and drown yourself in musical bliss as Sasha shows us how glorious a wet/dry pedalboard sounds. Alternatively, you can watch the video in full for the entire build process. You won’t regret it!
