    Hello everyone. I am looking to build a new pedalboard to replace my plywood/carpet board.

    I am leaning to build a pedaltrain style board (slats, angled with room for powersupply) but I really want to go for a clean as possible look with no visible cables running around. Kind of like the photo below.

    However, I also change pedals very often and don't want to have set, predrilled holes. Therefore I am thinking of getting a black material to cover the top. I was thinking of some kind of black fabric which velcro would stick to and I could cut little slits for the cables.Something like black landscaping fabric

    Any suggestions? or has anyone had this same issue? More explanation needed?

    When I had a homemade board made of plywood, I just used carpet for what you describe. The velcro stuck to it and I could cut small slits into it for power and signal cable. Pedals on top and all the cabling went underneath. It worked great and you couldn't see where I cut the slits into the carpet when the pedals were removed.
