    Hi folks

    I am searching for a 2nd hand pedalboard in the market. If my budget is around $100, which one will you choose?

    Pedaltrain Jr? SKB PS 15...PS 25? or other boards?

    Actually, i would only put one volume pedal and 5 pedals on the board.:dude

    For a board that small, why not make it yourself? Go to a hardware store and buy a small shelf, a can of black chalkboard paint, and 2 drawer pulls. It'll cost you $12.

    You can get a brand new RockOn pedalboard with gigbag from Reverend for $89+shipping. I've got a wah, 3 ODs, Fuzz, Chorus, and tuner on mine - if 2 had smaller enclosures, I could fit another box on mine. A great board IMO...

    I really dig having the rear shelf - makes reaching the 2nd row of pedals much easier. Underneath is enough space to stick a little 'gig box' with extra strings, picks, slides, etc. Great board for the $$$, IMO...

    I got a used Pedaltrain (1st version full sized) for $99 a year or two ago... I'd look for one of those.

    I did think to make one by myself. But Its difficult to find a bag to fit the board

    Ebay for around $49 I think. I'll double check it and get back with the cost. Added the second tier, and Gator makes a padded mixer bag that fits it perfectly....

    Hey Brian,

    this is Alan.

    I think you are better off with a board that dosen't come with power supply. You can get a One Spot power supply for pedals from Visual Sounds, it can supply up to 1700 mhA for 9V dc pedals which is quite alot, check out Visual Sound's hp.

    +1 on the visual sound power supply. I use one of them to run the whole board.

    The board is 24"x12"....
