What are the different choices available for Pedal Boards. They best designs and value.

Which ones make it easiest to organize and hide the spaghetti?

Any experience with boards that offer intergrated onboard power management.

Do they offer the same quality as having a seperate power management like the VooDoo Power2+.

If you where going to start over knowing now what you didn't know then which way would you go?

Thanks

There are so many makers out there and so many designs. I would go with something without onboard power. Pick up a Pedal Power or DC Brick to power your pedals. I am looking into Angstrom cases on Ebay. Looks to be a pretty good deal....and sturdy too. I had a PT Pro and that thing was so freakin' heavy!! I had a crappy SKB case and that thing fell apart. I now use a hard suitcase from the 60's and made a pedalboard for the inside. So far so good...

Get this: http://www.raveonguitarworks.com/pedalboards.html

Michael's a great guy who builds these simple boards to your directions and dimensions and puts on a material that holds your pedals really freakishly well. It's unreal. I've already bought three of these with different dimensions from him. Just get a double padded cover from Studio Slips for it and you're set.

Happy Pedaltrain user here. Light and strong, easy to change pedals around and with some creative wire tie placement you will have no spagetti. Newer ones have been modified to fit a Voodoolabs Pedal Power that I also strongly recommend.

I've had two NYC pedalboards and while they tend to need attention to carpet gluing after a period of time, they've worked great for me. A 2nd tier for the back row is a must and it's a great place to hide the PP2.

The first house I lived in was in Peabody, near the North Shore Mall. I've lived in Peabody, Hamilton, Essex, Danvers, and Beverly. Then I moved to Telluride and Boulder.

Do you play in a band in Bevtown?

MKS Pedal Pad. 2 level, plenty of space and on-board power. A bit heavy....but very rugged construction.

neil, you're in Beverly? I grew up in Beverly.
Not to take this too far OT but.

That I am, started here, went round the world and came back. You don't happen to ski do you? I hit Boulder on a road trip to Tahoe a few years ago, really liked it there. Currently without a band, looking to get something going w/my brother and some friends but time is a bit short lately. Had a couple craigslist horror shows recently but still trying to give it a run. Small world this internet is:dude

Same here, especially if you're a bit obsessive about the cleanliness of your board... because you stomp on it with dirty shoes all the time, grit and debris can accumulate on a pedalboard. With the pedaltrain it just falls through the slats :)

That's what I use, too. Big, heavy, built to take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. No issues what so ever with the power supply or the patch bay - just happy sounds all around.

I've Taken a closer look at the Puma and NYC, plus the MKS pedal pad. I'm Liken all three- with NYC having alot of adaptability.

The MKS is looking Americsn Tourister tested by Bonzo the chimp-- it has

Thats something I'd like to fimd outmore about.

I currently use a Gator board but the pedal train seems to be the better buy unpowered because you can just use a one spot or the voodoo labs power supply. If I could do it all over again I'd do the pedal train over the gator board. Best of luck in your choice.
