Taken from [this interview ](https://www.musicradar.com/news/dan-auerbach-theres-something-about-playing-that-electric-guitar-real-loud-that-feels-like-home)which also discusses the studio pedalboard used by Dan: > Everything goes through that, except for the wah. It’s essentially a patchbay for my pedals and it’s easy for me to understand and work around. It’s made working in the studio with guitar pedals a lot of fun. The best tools just get out of the way and let you do your thing.more
The effects pedal board switching system Noel Gallagher is using in this version of his pedalboard (Instagram posted on Oct 2016) is the TheGigRig G2. Noel captions the photo: > "Thanks to Daniel at Gig Rig for building me a new pedal board. I shall be noodling now from here to eternity!" It makes sense that this TheGigRig switching system was used, since Daniel from Gig Rig built the pedalboard for him.more
Dan Steinhardt (from That Pedal Show) posted a picture of that switching system on a board on instagram, mentioning it was build for Graham: "A few tweaks but finished this #pedalboard and delivered it to its new home with none other than #grahamcoxon huge thanks to Joe@thegigrig for being a superstar and helping me get this done"more
"A true gear geek, Lacey did all the wiring and soldering on his pedalboard. When his signal first hits the board, an L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic DI sends a signal to the front of house. Another line runs into a GigRig Pro-14 switching system" - [*Premier Guitar*](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/21220-rig-rundown-brand-news-jesse-lacey-and-vincent-accardi).more

"It’s not that large a palette that I tend to draw upon. There are certain sounds that I love. I use a GigRig G2 at the front end normally when I’m writing and recording, and I’ve got a selection of stompboxes at the front end, like a Prince of Tone or King of Tone, Jester Overdrive, Analog Man Mini-Chorus, Keeley tremolo, and an Electro-Harmonix POG and Pitch Fork."more
"This is my pedal power supply system. It totally rules. Works all over the world, powers all my pedals, runs off of only one IEC power chord, and has cut to length cables for each of my pedals so it all ends up looking real tidy and nice. I also have different adapters/converter guys that power my weird voltage pedals too.. and those just connect to the regular 9v ends. This power supply system changed my world. I love it."more
G2 is, quite simply, the most advanced effects pedal board switching system in the world. G2 starts where the industry standard Pro/MIDI 14 left off, and is born completely of an obsession for squeezing every last drop of tone out of your pedal board without tying your feet, or your brain up in knots. G2 is beautiful, compact, unbelievably simple to use and has the cleanest most transparent audio possible.
G2 takes true bypass switching to an entirely new level using technology never seen before on a pedal board switcher. The most important difference is our 'Passive True Bypass Matrix'. This technology guarantees the most direct signal path possible with no loading of your guitar signal. Its truly amazing.Almost 10 years ago we released the world's first programmable true bypass pedalboard switcher, the Pro14. Every ounce of knowledge that we have gained during that time working with some of the best musicians in the world is now manifest in G2.G2 is an obsession realised, and we know you're going to love it.
