Pedal Board?

Pedal Board?

Postby hmagman » Sun Mar 28, 2010 3:13 pm

Starting to collect a few effects pedals, now I'm looking for a pedal board to house them...

Any suggestions? [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]

Pedaltrain mini is my fave. The Jr is pretty small too. I like a small light board. The Jr has a mount for a power supply.

You really need to figure out what kind of real estate you need. Do you need a regulated power supply? will you be gigging it? Do you need a hard case?

A sheet of ply or MDF, a can of flat black spray paint, 4 rubber feet, and some black stick on velcro. Total cost, under $20.

For power, I just use a high capacity wall wart with enough juice to run multiple pedals. This entire board fits in an old plastic Shure drum mic kit carry case that I had in the garage.

Another vote for Pedaltrain. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

I'll echo what Steve said:

  • You really need to figure out what kind of real estate you need.
  • Do you need a regulated power supply?
  • Will you be gigging it?
  • Do you need a hard case?

To "B" or not to "B"... that is the question. ;)

Pedaltrain sounds like a good place to start...
Power supply would be good too.

Thanks again!

Lytpedalboards.com makes a decent board also. Although you could make your own using their design.

Pedaltrains are good boards, I have a pro and a Jr. I have a love/hate thing going with them though; on one hand I love the rail system for running cables and I like the space under the board so you can mount you power under it and not losing space on the board for powering which I find unacceptable for a pre-made board... on the other hand I do not like that the board is open underneath.

Also: DO NOT USE THE VELCRO THAT THEY SUPPLY FOR IT SUCKS!
