    I also googled 'royal blood pedalboard' and I think this photo gets us even closer to revealing the truth.

    The mystery green pedal is a Palmer Triage, after a bit more digging.

    As i guessed, its an amp switcher, although looking at the pic it appears he's looping some signals back into the board, so i think hes essentially using it as a loop pedal (not one of the overdub ones you might be thinking of).

    To be fair, the interview I read says it wasnt so much the gear that was the secret but the way he has them set up. It does look like a fairly sophisticated, not run-of-the-mill set up though. Ive seen a few covers on YouTube appear already so its obviously not THAT hard to get an approximation if youve got a bit of a head for gear

    cant load the pics at work, but just sounds like he has a POG and some fuzzy stuff going on, nothing too special, just routes some of it to different places so he can switch between the higher shifted sounds and back to create different textures.

    ive done something similar in my bedroom before and it does open up a lot more sounds.

    I fucking love um... 2 piece that makes that much noise is impressive.
    Saw them on John Peel stage and blew me away.

    He was on Soccer AM talking about his board.
    Says its really simple and really suprised no one can tell what he's doing.

    But most people who know even a tiny bit about guitar gear (ie know that a EHX Pog exists) can tell. I don't see what the big deal is with the board?!

    it doesn't sound all that impressive
    studio magic will help
    and live stuff, just run multiple amps and pedals
    bass player from high on fire runs his bass through both guitar and bass amp for more dirtier tones to take up the sonic space of an extra guitar player
    should check out Allusondrugs' pedalboards
    lots of lovely things going on there
