I’ve used a few different types of pedal boards in my time, and now, I’m looking for something for myself. Over the last few years, I was cutting my pedal usage back, but lately have been increasing the count, yet again. Therefore it’s looking like it might be time for a pedal board.
On Twitter, @johnnygizmo give me a link to a pedal board planner he designed for PedalTrain. Obviously, I’ve been living under a rock, because I haven’t heard about this company, so after further exploration, I’m really interested in their design.
What initially caught my eye was the open frame design. This is a fantastic (and seemingly obvious) idea to route cables and power supplies below the pedals. The other feature that I immediately liked was it’s elevation. Seems like I’m seeing more and more pedal boards that are too elevated. I would prefer it to be close to the floor, especially for the front pedals.
PedalTrain pedal boards also come with soft and hard cases. They basically break up their models by size:
PedalTrain Mini – frame 20x7x2 inches
PedalTrain JR – frame 17×12.5×2.5 inches
PedalTrain 1 – frame 22×12.5×2.5 inches
PedalTrain 2 – frame 24×12.5×2.5 inches (This is the most popular model)
PedalTrain Pro – frame 32x16x3.5 inches
You can also get these with custom colors. Prices are very affordable, ranging from $70 for the mini and $150 for the Pro (w/Soft case).
If you own one of these, please comment. I would like to know more about these, to see if it’s a good fit for me as well as some of the other readers out there!
