If you’re a gigging musician and have to pack up the gear and setup you know why I’m posting this. Currently, I have a couple of road cases for my gear, pedals, etc. I do NOT have a pedal board, and I feel like it’s finally time for me to pick one up. The idea of popping the top off of a case and basically ready for rock is starting to be very appealing.
I’ve looked a few models, and I think I want something simple and rugged. I’ve seen the ones that are powered, angled, etc, but something simple is very appealing to me.
Doing some looking, I saw the Road Runner effects pedalboard, and I think this might be thing I’m looking for. Do any of you have any recommendations?
Here is the official description about the pedalboard:
The Road Runner pedalboard is the safest and most convenient way to transport your valuable effects pedals to and from rehearsals and gigs. The base of these solid aluminum pedal cases are fully lined with Velcro while the lid is padded with thick nub foam. Road Runner includes self-adhesive Velcro tape for securely mounting your pedals. The pedalboard case features a nickel-plated steel spring handle, heavy duty hinges, and chrome plated butterfly locks.
