We got our YouTube channel back

With a little help from my friends… or with much help from people I partly didn’t even know before, we succeed in recovering our channel “delay dude”!

We want to thank everyone, who supported us.

But our very special thanks go to Philipp Ernst (Bonedo), who was so kind to spend hours to get in contact with the YouTube support. He was the guy who did all the bureaucratic paperwork with us.

We also want to thank Frank Prager. Without your mail and your comments, we wouldn’t even have started the fight.

And special thanks to Eirik (Living Room Gear Demos), Peter Grandl (Amazona), BoBeats, Hainbach and many, many more!

We are so grateful, because this channel means so much to us and so much to my beloved father, who is fighting the cancer and who must endure so many cruel operations these days.

Thank you all so much!

Tips & Tricks: Attaching pedals to the pedalboard

Tips & tricksWho hasn’t experienced the following: after a lot of work, you finally finished the composition of your pedalboard but when the pedalboard has to be transported, the question arises how to attach the small treasures to the board.

Here I would like to introduce diverse ways how to solve this problem.

Drilling and bolting

To drill holes into the bottom of the pedal and bolt them to the pedalboard is a cheap way to attach a stompbox to the board.
But this method makes it pretty cumbersome to change the pedals and, furthermore, the pedal will be destroyed.
Everyone who ever found a popular vintage pedal with a bottom that looked like swiss cheese knows what I am talking about.

Bike chain links

Another possibility to attach your pedals to the pedalboard is, to disassemble a bike chain and use the bottom cover screws to fix one part of a chain link to the pedal. The other side of the link can be bolt to the pedalboard.
This method is quite low-priced, space-saving and lasting.
But you will always need a screwdriver to change a pedal on the board.
And those, who are not willing to disassemble their bike, can also buy the small links which are offered by various manufacturers (f. e. Harley Benton Mounties).

Cable ties

If you use a pedalboard with holes you can also attach the pedals with cable ties to the pedalboard.
This solution is also offered by different manufacturers (Chemistry Design Werks).
But in my honest opinion, the visual appearance is somehow strange and you will always need a side cutter and new cable ties to change a pedal.


Velcro has become the standard for the attachment of pedals to a pedalboard.
For this technique you have to remove the rubber feet and fix one side of the Velcro to the bottom of your stompbox.
The counterpart of the Velcro has to be fixed to the pedalboard.
Velcro is quite inexpensive, easily obtainable and you will find different sizes.
Although the pedals can be removed/ changed pretty easily, this kind of attachment is relatively solid.
The great disadvantage is, that it is almost impossible to remove the Velcro residue-free and sometimes you also tear off labels or the coating of a pedal.

The second part of this series will be about special items which promise to keep every pedal in place.


PedalboardTo every guitarist, who use more than three effect pedals, it makes sense to think about how to transport and store the pedals in a rational way.
The need for a re-arrangement of the pedals before each gig or rehearsal is, on the one hand, pretty time consuming and, on the other hand, the permanent movement may cause a serious damage of cables or jacks.
But which pedalboard is the right one? Continue reading “Pedalboards”
