Deluxe Gorm Pedalboard
Materials: Gorm shelf, Dioder LED bar
Description: This might seem a little decadent, but aside from its practical use it is excellent musicians living room decoration.
All in all I have three “Gorm Boards”, all made from the same Ikea product: the Gorm shelf. I always pull out the outermost planks and refix them again a bit farther apart from each other so cables better fit in between and to have a slightly larger real estate. Stained or painted it – white enamel spray paint in this case. Added rubber feet (get them from any hardware store or case and rack builders). Essential Velcro.
Now it doesn’t really help seeing things on stage but the Dioder bars were just something I had to try. They fit beneath perfectly and with a little cable management they become invisible, too.
