Length and Width
The length and width define the overall size of your pedalboard specified in inches. Our pedalboards have a protective molding around it’s perimeter. This molding occupies a small amount of the pedal board edges however you can typically place pedals very close to the edge by overlapping the molding a little bit with the pedal. Keep in mind if you have items that extend past the pedal board edges, your case will need to be made to compensate for the overhang.
Flat, Low Profile: A couple of examples are shown here. This is by far the most popular model we sell. The top pedalboard surface is very close to the stage at less than 1/2″ in height. This makes it very ergonomic to play and it’s the closest thing to having the pedals directly on the stage floor. Our low profile design has the most rock solid feel under foot. It’s the best design for flat, single level pedalboards on the stage floor when using Velcro or other self-gripping fasteners. If you will be screwing your pedals down, read on…
Flat, Plank: (not shown) This is similar in appearance to the “Low Profile” version in that the pedalboard is flat (not angled) and is used in three basic ways… (1) An alternate design for when you need a very stiff “plank” to span your pedalboard across a keyboard stand or similar situation. (2) We may use a Plank style when we are building an elaborate multi-level pedal board. (3) If you will be screwing all your effects to the pedal board, the “Plank” (and the “Angled” version as well) use a thicker plywood material that will take screws better.
Angled: We add a rise to the back of the pedalboard to create an angle on the pedalboard surface. We use similar materials to the “Plank” that are more stiff to support the span of the angle and also works well if you are screwing pedals to the pedalboard. If you are getting a case for your angled pedalboard, you typically want to get the accessory compartment option with a depth that meets or exceeds the rise amount of your angled pedalboard. The angled part will go down into the accessory compartment using the space in the case very efficiently.
Velcro Loop: Features a premium grade Hook and Loop fastening system. (1) Heavy-duty nylon Loop fabric is laminated to the pedalboard panel and covers the top surface. (2) A supply of 1″wide, high bonding, Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) backed hook strip material is included. This attaches securely to the bottoms of your pedals, tuner, power supply, etc. Just cut to length and apply by following easy instructions. Our tests have shown this high tech adhesive to have excellent bonding strength to a wide variety of surfaces and withstand adverse conditions. (3) A supply of 1/2″ wide plain hook strip material, to be cut to length and used to retain cables, power cords, etc. to the pedalboard is also supplied.
ABS Hardtop: (not shown) The top surface does not have Velcro. Instead it has an ABS overlay that is laminated to the pedalboard substrate. Use this if you will be adding your own strips of self-gripping fasteners to the pedalboard surface or if you will be screwing your pedals down to the board and don’t need Velcro.

“Gripping Grid” Footprint: The bottom of the flat low profile pedalboard has multiple low-skid, non-marring urethane rubber feet arranged every 4″ to 5″ in a grid pattern to insure excellent contact with the stage.
Pedalboard Panel: Made from a 1/4″ commercial grade Masonite type panel which has an extremely hard 4 layer urethane and alkyd finish. The very low profile of the pedalboard panel and the Gripping Grid footprint enable it to grip to the floor even if the floor is not perfectly flat.
Extruded Edge Molding: Made of high impact, virtually unbreakable, R-PVC that protects and finishes the edge of the pedalboard. Unlike aluminum, this basically eliminates sharp burrs that can occur over time due to the edges getting bumped around on the road which may cut fingers.
