Final testing and finishing touches

Play your instrument while going through all your effects one by one. Make sure each pedal works as it should, just as they did during the first test. This step is mainly formal, but it allows you to listen that nothing has changed while you have attached and dressed the patch cables.

In some cases, the final installation of the patch cables can affect how a certain effect reacts to another, but this is very rare if you’ve been careful during the first testing phase.

Fluorescent Tape

You can mark some critical jacks in your signal chain with Pro Pocket Spike Stack Fluorescent Tape, which you can also use to mark your settings.

Marking your settings is important, especially if you’re forced to go on in a hurry or on a dark stage. You only have to take a few looks to be sure your pedalboard’s effects are adjusted correctly.

Weighing your pedalboard – packed inside its case – on suitable scales will give you an exact figure for flying to gigs. You can use same fluorescent Pro Gaff tape to mark the weight clearly on the side of your case (or gig bag).

Pot Stopper

On some pedals control knobs are prone to move out of position far too easily, for example if you hit them with your foot. In these cases Custom Boards’ Pot Stopper rings will prove a godsend.

Stoppers helps to keep your pedal settings intact but still usable. Rings also hide nicely under the potentiometer.

Barefoot Buttons

If you have trouble hitting the right switches or if you play without shoes, you can try Barefoot Buttons to smoothen your touch to the pedals.

IF THIS WERE A Custom Boards pedalboard, we would put our quality seal on the board, and then take a few pictures for our gallery. 

Now your pedalboard is ready to inspire you, and ready to face the rigours of regular gigging.


If you have purchased all the parts and components but get a feeling that you might not be up to the task after all, we can make your pedalboard for you, using the components you have bought from us. Don’t worry, we won’t let anything go to waste.
