Thanks Andy....

I think I might just build one like that!! They pretty much show you how to construct it!

Guitar Parts Canada has Pedaltrain boards.

I recently built a super nice board using a Radial Boneyard and George L's for all the interconnects

.....I don't know, but I'll ask......the finished pedalboard looks so clean.....at first glance it looks like it's isn't functional (like a video or an ad):)

Hey Andy.....

I just read the propaganda on the pedal board. It looks good to me. Do you carry these? And, do you think there is enough room under the board for a Voodoo Labs pedal power and a AC power bar? I noticed that Bryanjetboy has his power supplies on top. That is the crucial thing for me. Getting those power supplies OFF the top of the board. (because I use too many toys):D

cheers

Two words: pegboard, zip-ties.

Or is that three words?
the hyphen makes it a single word.

i just built mine from scrap plywood at work. so i actually made money making my pedalboard. and i could easily modify it to resemble one of those tonebone boards

Say hello to my $3 pedal board I made this afternoon. Sick of throwing my pedals into my gear bag, then having the settings all messed up the next time I use them.

$2 for the handles, $1 for the rubber feet, old piece of plywood, black spray paint I found at my dad's (when I was using his table saw to cut said piece of wood), and a handfull of velcro strips from work.

As you can see, by both the board, and the b-rated effects on it - I am cheap (thrifty?)!

Hi Pete, I'm e-mailing you pics

OK so I put 'em on a page at the site, let's see if this works






Andy

I ordered one right after your post here.
Then yesterday I'm told they don't make them anymore:(
I'm bummed.
Oh well at least between your pictures and the one's online, I can "clone" it.
Of course that would mean I'd have to find the time to do that.

cheers
Pete

They are pretty easy to make yourself. I bought a great metal case and Canadian Tire. I found some carpet and a nice board at the recycling area at the dump. I haven't put everything together yet because I have been busy, but I'll basically be looking at under $30 by the time I am done.

I guess different people's idea's of 'cheap' vary. I find the prices on pedal boards ridiculous.

When it comes to brand name boards though, this guy makes some nice ones for decent prices: http://www.nycpedalboards.com/

And http://www.rondomusic.net has the cheapest boards/cases by miles. Their shipping prices are a little high, but I have bought items from them before and they are good quality for the insanely low prices.

i reccomend building rather than buying. you get a board more suited to your needs that way. i think the general rule for building your own is to lay out your pedals how you want them, take note of the specs, and grab some plywood from rona or home depot and cut it to those specs. if you don't have a power saw or something like that in your garage, hand tools will get the job done all the same and cost less than a pre-made board. there's nothing wrong with pre-made boards. they have a lot of benefits like onboard power supplies and what have you. they're just one size fits all, and they cost more than building your own.

that said, if i was going to buy a pre-made board, i'd go for a pedalpad
