    I'm doing this beach gig where sand is becoming an issue on my pedals. Besides wrapping with clear plastic kitchen wrap, are there any commercially produced products that allow you to still see all your pedals, but keep sand and debris out of the switches?

    definitely relevant to my interests. mainly so i can cut down on my pedal polishing to maybe once every couple months.

    I don't know about clear, but I snagged a cover from these guys and it turned out great.

    No more dusting pedals for me.

    I think the best way to go is Saran Wrap premium. A fairly robust but cheap, workable solution to keeping my switches from being completely clogged with beach sand in 3 months. You can still see your tuner and work the knobs as well as switch pedals.

    I wonder if those "Food Saver" vaccum-pack machines from the infomercials come in 'industrial size'?

    Alternately, why stop at just the pedalboard? Sand is also getting on you and your guitar.

    I've used transparent tarps or shower curtains before at rainy gigs.

    Found the perfect solution to keeping the fine salt and sand out of my switches on the beach gig:

    These snap over your pedals, stay secure in the wind, and you can still see your knobs and lights well enough to know what's going on.
