    i just put my new board together. i bought a tmcases pb 3 (the dual board one) and went nuts buying 8 pedals in the last two weeks to fill it up (i'm sick). anyway, i just got finish throwing it all together and it weighs a ton! with everything cased up it has to be at least 70-80 pounds. my lazy ass is already having second thoughts about my pedal madness. how much does your board weigh?

    Lol! I know the feeling. I just built this one:

    It weighs 38 lbs. with the lid attached. If I add any more pedals I'm also adding a set of cheap swivel casters. I found a set at the hardware store that cost $12 and are rated at 60 lbs.

    Mine weighs so much, that I debate bringing it alot. It's a NGM Board with about 12 pedals and a switcher on it. I swear it weighs 100lbs...

    I ended up using two smaller boards, that I still can't carry due to a bad back....I may actually try using 3 of the smallest Pedaltrain boards so I can carry them around.

    That's why I have no interest in a road cased pedalboard. My RockOn board is nice and light with a gig bag that adequately protects for my purposes with minimal weight.

    i save myself a bit of weight by using an aluminum case, instead of a wood case.

    here's my layout, and this only weighs about 24 lbs.

    Voodoo Labs PP2 (also a big weight saver, if you think about it)
    Zoom ultra fuzz
    Boss DD5
    Line 6 tap trem
    Akai Headrush
    Line 6 DL4
    Effector 13 No Fi
    Boss TU2

    i use a 32" x 22" Warwick RockCase - spring loaded handle, pretty thick velcro inside, big fat rubber feet and very sturdy.

    Mine is an NGM. I've never weighed it, but I would guess it at about 50 pounds.

    This is why I went with a PedalTrain. I can also put a FX-1, Strobo and wah on the board at some point.

    Current config is : Vox Wah, strobo, OD808, Silver LTD, GE7, OCD, switcher, MM-4 and DD-3. Doesn't weigh that much.

    My board used to weigh 80lbs, but now I have transferred that weight to my 6 space rack. I have a 12"x 35" board now that I have in a small padded keyboard bag that weighs about 30lbs max.
