WLPb: A Very Special Thank You

So, its official- GearTrap has built and successfully operated the World's Largest Pedalboard! Last night in Nashville, the hundreds in attendance at our first NAMM Party were privy to gear history. We made our first of many attempts to set the record for the WLPb and were completely successful.I'll be divulging more details in the coming days, but for those of you who are wondering, the WLPb consisted of 142 pedals. What's more, it sound great! What's the secret? I'll never tell.

Anyway, onto more important matters- I owe a huge thank you to a lot of people so here we go-

First and foremost, to Aljon "Tone Freq" Go. Without him, it would've never happened. To say "he's the man" doesn't come close to covering it.

Also, thanks to John Chandler of Pedaltrain. John helped us take a good idea and make it a reality. He came onboard and dedicated countless hours of his time and his fantastic brand's name to the effort.

Thanks to ALL our sponsors!
