Anyone know of a good carpet/cloth to cover a pedalboard? It needs to be any color as long as it's black, and velcro has to stick to it very well. I thought this would be a no brainer until I bought some inexpensive black carpet and velcro hardly sticks to it at all!

Help!

sorry to hear...personally, i'd paint the board a flat matte black and use Dual Lock. :)

I got 50 pieces of dual lock (2" x 5" rectangles) for 30.00...

that being said, i'd recommend going over to Home Depot and getting their commercial grade velcro stuff. works awesome.

Trunk liner from an auto upholstery store. Cheapest stuff you will find, and works great. Most places have different colors, thicknesses, and velcro stickiness...so take your velcro along to test.

Or boat carpeting. It's pretty cheap and very durable. It is the stuff you find in fishing boats (ones that have carpet, anyway). It is pretty cheap.

Thanks everyone. I looked around at some carpet stores and found some black auto/marine carpeting that velcro sticks to nicely for .78 sq ft.

I appreciate all the suggestions.

Once i found dual lock i have never messed with that silly velcro stuff ever?
It's good for things you don't move, but if you change your board a lot, you just end up with lots of wasted dual lock because the join between the sheets is stronger than the adhesive...

If you use a putty knife or screwdriver to remove pedals, Dual Lock lasts just fine.

Small amount of dual lock is all you need. 1/2" wide strip on the top and bottom of a standard MXR box is all it needs.
Dual Lock is superior in about a dozen ways to velcro. Just my opinion.
