NEW Scott Henderson Pedalboard aug 2012


Here is a pedalboard I did for Scott Henderson.
Scott was looking to re-create a lighter and more efficient version of the pedalboard he had been using for the last few years.

The original pedalboard that Scott had lacked convenience. He needed to check his batteries daily to ensure that pedals would not die while on stage, and removing batteries from pedals required that pedals be removed from the pedalboard. He also needed to unplug the input from each pedal before and between performances so that the battery life would be extended. Additionally, Scott felt concerned about the positions of his pedals on the pedalboard platform, making them susceptible to damage (with jacks on the rear on the pedals often getting hit).

When Scott saw the Vertex Custom Battery Box that Michael Landau had (pictured below), he was inspired to incorporate something similar into his rig, allowing him to consolidate space between the pedals (no need to unplug the inputs to each pedal), and more easily replace batteries.
Vertex Custom Battery Pack with ON/OFF switch on the exterior (houses five 9V batteries).

Hi Jan,

No, I haven't used it yet. That will be on my gig at Baked Potato on Sep 8.
