    So, the growing pedals I've been needing for my cover band has gotten to the point that my little homemade plastic sheet I was using before just wasn't cutting it.

    Found this guy on craigslist for $50 and pounced. A BIT big...but super tough and easy to close up for transport....

    What's keeping the pedals in place? Is the board covered in velcro?

    The fabric inside accepts the harder male velcro on the bottom of the pedals.

    Plus there is a pillow type pad at the top of the cover that presses softly against the pedals when closed up.

    Great find for $50. It looks pretty similar to the NYC Pedalboards, which I've always liked.

    I googled DC case and I was able to find a DC pedalboards website, but they look different than yours. Do you have a link to the company that made your board?

    Sorry, can't really find anything online myself. The logo says:

    "DC Case - Alva, Oklahoma" with a drawing of the capital building behind it.

    Might be a company that doesn't exist anymore.

    Regarding the thread title: I've known enough guitarists to know that a pedalboard is not a sign of maturity, so don't get too excited. :)

    But the board is great -- nice CL grab!

    Interesting. I googled them in Alva Oklahoma and I found a, "DC Case and Cabinets," but it seems like they're out of business. But it definitely seemed like it was a small, privately owned company that didn't do mass production.

    Looks like you might have gotten a handmade pedalboard/case. Nice find.

    I think Robert Keeley bought it. The case company that is.
