TN, USA -- With 142 different pedals, 13 loaded pedal boards
and truckload of guitar cable, Jaux King's pedalboard sets
the world record for the Largest pedalboard.
The device performed as expected, without
any glitches or noise problems, before a crowd of approximately
300 invited industry professionals. (enlarge
"The night was a smashing success," says Jaux
King, one of the founders of GearTrap.com.
"We had a little bit of noise when we first fired
it up last night, and it was a little worrisome. But we were
able to reconfigure a few things and it all worked great.
It actually sounded as good as my little setup
at home. We had two noise suppressors in the chain and they
made all the difference."
Now that he's achieved one goal, King says he's
already thinking big about next year. "We're already working
on breaking our own record," he says. "We have an undisclosed
goal in mind. Suffice to say, it's going to be ridiculously
bigger than this year's board."
