I'd like to find a small pedal board that will accommodate just two pedals.
Any suggestions? Thanks
If you're "woodwork" handy, your best bet is building one. The smallest pedalboards you can buy (from my knowledge) fits four pedals.
Both Boss and Gator make 3 pedal boards.
For just two pedals my suggestion would be Home Depot.
Yes I agree with the above folks. For just 2 pedals I think just get a piece of plywood from Home Depot or Lowe's, spray paint it black and put some Velcro on it. That was my main pedalboard for the first decade of my playing career.
If you want a premade aluminum one, you can find some inexpensive ones on Amazon by Donner or Ghostfire. I have a Ghostfire mini board for my small pedals and it's been reliable and solid.
I have that Boss 3 pedal board. It works nicely.
Why are smacking your forehead. Is my question inappropriate?
Super small, I'd look at cutting boards... or maybe a pre-finished board from Lowes/Home Depot.
Double sided tape the two pedals to each other. Done!
Actually, you might want to look in the flooring section of Home Depot or Lowes. There might be sample pieces that are the right size for you. Otherwise, just grab a small pine/oak/poplar board and cut to the length you need. They have lots of sizes available.
Someone here once recommended using a pedal riser as a board. Pedaltrain makes a 1,2 and 3 pedal risers for cheap. Turn it around and you have perfect angle for your 2 pedals.
I did the same thing. Got a board and cut it to 7"x12". After that, just for visual nit-pick, I spray painted it black and used spray adhesive to cover it with some paisley fabric... a lot of clear coat to then seal that. I did add a strip of 1"x1" to the back bottom to offset the flatness. Works good.
I don't think it's inappropriate. As a matter of fact that response was kind of inappropriate.
For me a simple piece of hardwood cut to the right size and finished according to your liking would do it.
I used a small piece of birch plywood. Cut it to size, sanded the edges, spraypainted it black, and mounted some small rubber feet I stole off an old pod xt live. 3M dual lock to hold the pedals. Works great.
Do you really need a board smaller than a Pedaltrain Nano? You say you want it for only two pedals; does that include a tuner pedal or are you using a clip on? Anyway, here is one of my small boards (two pedals + tuner). A nice thing about the Nano is that it is designed for their Volto rechargeable battery to fit underneath. One of these is velcroed to the bottom of this board, and it's great not to have to hunt for a power outlet.
That actually looks like a pretty good option.
That was the only pedal board I've ever used. Zip ties to hold everything in place, just barely big enough (custom fit) to hold three pedals, I used it for over fifteen years.
i just use a boost and delay. that’s it. I plug straight into my amps. 3CM.
i just did what others suggested. home depot. you only need a small piece of ply wood.
same here! rubber feet, velcro & painted black.
