Please Stop Saying: “Worship Pedalboard”



There aren’t a whole lot of things that make me roll my eyes, but the term “worship pedalboard” is one of them.

I think the effects pedal industry has reached a serious saturation point, where everyone is going for that same sound, using the same combination of boutique pedals, the same grey gigantic expensive digital delay pedal (if you have the matching reverb processor, minus 100 points!), with that same volume pedal front and center.

They’re just pedalboards, folks. If you primarily play at church, that’s fine. But what you’re stepping on is a pedalboard…not a “worship pedalboard.”

Part of me just feels like there are a bunch of rich Christian kids out there who who’ve gotten hooked on this hobby and they’re just so happy to be doing God’s work. Take away their pedalboard, and they will lose their identity…

I don’t know how to end this post/rant.
