  • Pedalboards?

    Who do you all like for actual pedal boards? I had a PT Pro and hated that the case was separate from and heavier than my loaded board and I don't want a soft case.
    I was looking at NYC Pedalboards but wanted to know if there's a similar company that can do it better/cheaper (I'll most likely need a custom job) not that there's anything wrong with their boards. Thanks.
    OK, I'm insane - but I'm still sane enough to know it.


    Good deals with awdwon, captions87, sonicarchitect, boytbpc, Firebrand, psyphr, itkindaworks, etawful, bmoncbus, Daryl Chaney, vintage-freak, Claytonjohn and a few others that I can't be bothered to remember.

      Pedaltrain... you'll go back.

      If you want the pedals all on a flat surface that just has a lid to go on, get the better quality flight case options from hybridcases in New Jersey. I've bought cases for various things (custom sizes) from them on several occasions and can definitely recommend them.

          But then he'd need a heavier than the fully loaded board case, or a soft case that he wouldn't want.

            I've got a Pedaltrain PT-1. The case is light and gets the job done. If all else fails, maybe go with two PT-1s or PTjrs

              I'm enjoying my pedaltrain... the problem with the flat board pedalboards is that too much surface area gets eaten up by your power supply and cables. I still have my flat surface but I use it for synths... I was able to fit a lot more on a smaller board with the pedaltrain than the flat case because the power supply sits underneath and you can hang cable ends off the edges.

              being able to rout cables underneath is a bonus, tho mines still a mess cus I can never keep a pedal combination for too long.

                Exactly my problem with the home-made Ikea boards that people are so proud of. Saving money on a board by itself is cool, but not as cool as having something that safely protects pedals for transport.

                    The pedaltrain pro weighs 7 pounds empty. The case weighs 33+ pounds. About 40 pounds empty. Add pedals you are looking at 75-100 pounds.
                    WARNING: TC Electronics Pedals Are NOT REPAIRABLE. Instead of fixing my switch they wanted to charge me $72 plus shipping on a $99 pedal to replace all electronics, when only the switch was defective. This is their blanket repair policy on ALL repairs. They have no replacement switches. The switch is on the board so substituting a different switch can't work. Do not buy pedals from companies that cannot repair their own switches.

                      tHIS. I had a cheapie flight case type pedal board and hated it. Now that I have a PT, I can buy more pedals I don't really need.

                        I've been using a custom NYC pedalboard for about ten years. It's heavy but nearly indestructible, it's been through many bands, gig, jams, bars etc. Once the velcro padding got loose and the NYC guy fixed it for free, he has also sent me a couple of handles when they wore out. He ain't too friendly (he's all business) but he really supports his product 100%. Loaded with the top on (ready to transport), it weighs about 50 pounds.

                          in general hard cases are gonna be heavy. you can't get around that.
                          pedaltrain boards themselves are pretty light, and you can't rag on them for wanting to put 15 pedals on the board.

                          I have a pt-pro with a soft case... and a diy board that I made that fits a keyboard case.
                          i'm a fan of the diy board that fits a keyboard case. I'm keeping my eye out for something to replace the pt-pro right now.

                              Granted, but it makes too much sense to me to not make the board and case separate things like Pro; so much extra weight.
                              Pedalboard with a lid, it's as good as it gets.
