  • Guys with DIY pedalboard.

    Or anybody who knows the fine details about their board, what degree of elevation do you like?

    What do you mean by degree of elevation? Do you mean horizontal/vertical/diagonal?



    Personally, I like the NYC pedalboards design and have somewhat emulated it with my DIY boards. Others like the Pedaltrain-type model.

      I mean from the horizontal how far do you like it the top to be raised compared to the bottom. I'm just wondering what is too much and what is not enough, although there's plenty of guys with flat boards, but you know what I mean.

          I have two boards with tiers and the higher tier is about 4 inches higher than the bottom. I find it to work just right because it allows me to fit power supplies underneath it and eliminates inadvertent stomping on the pedals in the back.

              My two tier board had about a 10 degree slope upward. Not very much at all. For 14 inches of board depth I only blocked up the back side 2-3 inches. My current one tier board is just flat.

                  Having owned a Pedaltrain in the past, I can't see any benefit to having a sloped board whatsoever other than being able to put a power supply underneath it. The thing is, sloped or not, the pedals are still on the same level with each other so it being sloped makes no difference at all. I'd rather have split tiers than a sloped board.

                    This is my most current version. The black peg board is attached to a laptop elevator, which is on hinges. That means when I sit it on a table top to dial in I can erect it like you see for easy access to all the pedal knobs. When on the floor, it's almost flat and can be angled all the way up to 90 degrees if I like. I'm putting a second one together now with a wah, a Big Muff, and a few others. All the pedels below are run off one Godlyke wall wart.

                        Mine are flat. No more than 10-20 degrees would be about right for an angled board IMO.

                          my perfect board would be like a helweg



                          i use a pedaltrain pro, but i wish a) the slots werent so damn wide, and b) it had maybe a inch or so more clearance underneath. and a bottom cover.



                          i designed a bottom cover, trying to get it made from sheet metal soon, and thinking about making some sort of leg extensions for that extra inch of height.

                            I saw a PT Mini that had some of those rubber chair leg protector things on the bottom of them that gave it about an extra half inch or more. I think they were part of the Brim mod for the Fuel Tank Jr to be able to fit under there.

                              I like enough rise to avoid hitting the front pedals when stabbing at the back. And I want enough room underneath to fit the supplies and a good bar.
