    Friends of gearpage, I hope you all are having a glorious day! I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I've recently started making handmade pedalboards for my friends and many of them have suggested that I start marketing and selling them to rest of the population. I only have two pictures on hand right now, I'll put more up later. The jacks on the side are neutriks, contrary to what is seen with a wired DC power jack. I'm coming up with some other designs. Basically, I'm seeing if there is any interest in the craftsmanship and style. I would sell them for about $200 at 3-4 set sizes prebuilt or custom order (size, material, jacks, etc). Thank you all, and I'll put up some more pictures once I get home. Have an awesome day!!!

    If you have any ideas or suggestions, by all means, please post them! I'm always open to criticism! Thank you!

    Hey, I think its great to have more of the "small guys" creating quality products for other musicians! So nice job on the pedal board it looks great, looks similar to one I built recently.

    Im a little confused as to the features and what the jacks are? Are you including power at the $200 price point?

    Mojo, thanks for checking it out! So far, I've been putting in Neutrik solderless 1/4" jacks. The DC power outlet is wired with a standard female end cable. I hadn't thought about including power since most of the guys that I've made them for have Voodoo power supplies or GigRigs that I mount underneath for them. Most people like them because of how stunning they look with natural/stained wood and gold or chrome hardware while being simple and incredibly durable. I would definitely be willing to include power supplies (if that seems like a good idea) as long as I know how many pedals are being powered. Typically when someone has me build one they'll just have me put the pedals on for them and solder some Mogami/Switchcraft custom patch cables so that everything looks purty, lol. That way its ready to go for them! :)

    Thanks was just curious! Id imagine you'd find guys who'd be interested in both with or without power so nice to have the option... I am offering some custom built cabinets myself for just a short while, so I definitely do appreciate the hand craftsmanship, good luck to you sir!

    How does one carry it to the gig? Is it made to fit a readily available case or bag?

    I usually build a custom ATA case for them. Some of the designs I've made include a case built into it that latches onto the bottom. Thanks for asking, I probably should have clarified that to begin with!
