I’ve mentioned it time and time again I like simple designs. Simple to me means reliability, dependability and ease of use. This can be with pedals, amps, guitars, etc.Â Of course, options are good too, but I definitely gravitate towards straight and simple for the most part.
StageLitePro has come up with a very elegant and simple way to solve a common problem on stage. Especially for those touring musician, bar scene musicians, worship band musicians that find themselves on a stage many times a year. Lighting can be rough at times. We’re not talking about the stage lighting that the audience enjoys, but lighting to help you function on stage.
Often times when the stage goes dark and you need to adjust a pedal or diagnose a problem with the pedal board and you’re slightly blinded by spotlights or you’re in the pitch black between songs/sets, this can be a major pain in the butt. StageLitePro came up with a nice solution for this. They’ve made a “pedal guard’ with lighting. In a nut shell, it’s a shield facing away from the stage, your pedal board would slide into it, and the shield or guard is lit with LED lights. Very simple and works well. I did some tests with a Pedaltrain PT-2 pedal board loaded with pedals it lit the pedals beautifully. It’s not distracting or noticeable from the audience’s point of view and lights up the board perfectly!
StageLitPro makes a Pedal Guard Pro (24″ x 10.5″ x 8″) for larger boards and a Pedal Guard Compact (14″ x 6.5″ x 2.5″) for smaller boards. Additionally, they make a Set List Pro (14″ x 6.5″ x 2.5″ which could work with loose pedals (not on a board) or as the name suggests, set lists, lyrics, etc. The guard is made with 10 gage black matte powder coated aluminum, and built super tough! As I mentioned, the lighting is a row of LEDs powered by 9 volt battery or AC.
For this give away, I’m giving away 2 units – a Pedal Guard Pro (9V battery powered) and a Set List Pro (AC powered). The Pedal Guard Pro sells for $99 and the Set List Pro goes for $69 – so the total value of this give away is $168.

I was thinking about tough stage conditions while writing this post – strobe lights, darkness, cables all over the place, cramped quarters, etc.Â So the question isâ€¦. “What is the most embarrassing stage incident you have experienced? If you’ve never been on stage – what would be the most embarrassing stage incident you could picture happening to you?”. I can’t wait to read these answers!
