The LiveMaster is a new pedalboard that lets you pick and choose what effects you want on it and when with complete control.
From Chinese effects company Biyang comes the LiveMaster, an awesome new way of creating a custom pedalboard. The LiveMaster allows you to pick and choose from 40 micro effect pedals which each slot into the pedalboard and can be switched out with any of the others.
The LiveMaster comes in 3 different editions which respectively hold four, seven, and ten effects. The mini effect modules slot into the board with a spring-locking system which eliminates the busyness of a board made up of pedals and wires. Which is another point, the pedalboard requires just one input and one output no matter the number of effects you have in the board.
The 40 effect modules includes everything you could want including Distortion, Boost, Chorus, Phase, Looping, Delay, Reverb, Compression, Tuner, and so much more. As they’re all connected in a singular chain the LiveMaster also helps to reduce noises from cable connections and strengthens the line signal. More effects are planned to be released.
The chassis for the effects is made up of lightweight aluminium and offers a true-bypass. Each module slot has it’s own footswitch so you can activate and de-activate effects live, as well as the option to program it as a tap-tempo. LiveMaster also features an internal memory so you can save patches.
So I bet you’re wondering how many hundreds this pedalboard will cost you. It’s actually incredibly cheap with the chassis going for between £47/$65 and £99/$120. Getting a big collection of the modules will cost a bit more at between £23/$19 to £34/$48 each, but the beauty of it is that you can just select the few you want or build your collection one at a time.
