Looking for a Pedal Board

I would like to know what pedal boards are available to hold a load of pedals and that can contain all the power/cables underneath to keep it clean.... I saw Trailer Trash and I like those, but I'd prefer the cables to be "inside" instead of dangling around... Also I'm planning on getting a Loooper, and I'd like for it to be "sunk" inside the board, not sticking up..... Does anyone know of a company that can do that? Thanks - E

Nope, I dont have a pic or a looper in mine. I use the same 2 level one that is at the top of the link I sent you. It's nice in that it has a power supply and you can store all the spagetti wiring underneath the pedals. As far as having a looper sunk into to a pedalboard, there's none that I know of that have something like that built in since loopers can come in all shapes and sizes. You may need to have one custome built in which case the link skiraly017 gave you may be more helpful.

I second the PedalPad suggestion... Very sturdy and clean design; excellent construction. Once assembled, you can have one clean and uncluttered setup...

Damn, this loooper situation is getting outta hand... I think I'm making it a lot harder than it should be... maybe i should just get a NYC pedalboard and get a 4 Loooper with a tuner mute for the 808, Klon, Octavia and Fuzz Face : then call it a day....

Hey deviltone,

I have the new SKB PS-45 power conditioned pedalboard:



This might be something you might be interested in.

Hamer95, It's nice, but not big enough... I'm looking in the realm of 32" wide and 16-18" deep.....and with a second tier.... like a NYC pedal board

i also had the NGM & it was great.A little big for my needs now & it was heavey,but realy nice & built like a tank.

As far as built in loops go.The guys that made the juicebox powersupply use to make a board with a strip of looper switches at the toe of the board.Nice idea.The wires went underneith & the jacks for the loopes where across the back.But they don't make them anymore + the board with all the loops & a road case was over $1000.Not surprised their out of production.

I think there are some pics floating around of Brad Whitfeild using one.

$1000?!?!? Jesus, if I had the know how, I could build my own pedal board of my dreams for less than 200$..... My cousin is a metal worker and can make anything.... If I gave him the specs on a board, it could be done in no time. . I just need to know how to wire it up and then make the Looper in the toe of the board....That'd be friggin' awesome... :D

For me, I don't know about a couple of the suggestions above... Way too much clutter. A double tier at an affordable price is the PedalPad, and they have them available up to 38". The optional power supply and line router are very good. I'm still doing some swapping on mine before I tuck the last cables underneath, but this is what the 38" is like... All subject to opinion, of course!

This list was compiled by someone else, but is pretty exhaustive. Many of the manufacturers had built-in loopers.

Brad Whitford and Joe Perry of Aerosmith use those plus about 25 other guys actually. The board did not go out of production because of price. I shut the business down out of choice when I moved 3 years ago and changed to a more demanding job. Subsequent proprietors of the pedalboard.com name just could not make the business work like I was able to. I still get several e-mails a month from players wanting to buy that board which was called the Modular Pedalboard.

Incidentally - we are bringing all of the ADL products back into production starting with the JuiceBox which will be available at the Arlington Guitar Show in October. My new partners definitely want to bring back the Modular Pedalboard System sometime next year.

Glad to hear it! I've been thinking about making the flight from Atlanta to Dallas for the Arlington show myself. Now I'm gonna do it, so I can wish you luck in person as you kick off your next new venture. I have used both the single and double SwitchBoxes over the past few years, and they've helped in a lot of ways.

What about Zakk Wylde?

The guy might be crazy, but his pedal board is simple, a 2 by 8 wooden board.

That is what I have covered in speaker carpet.

Sometimes ya gotta stick to the basics......
