I have tried arranging my pedals on a board and just placing them on the ground and packing them in my bass case. For those of us who have the option, do you prefer having a board to put your pedals on, even if you only have two or three; or are there people who refuse to use a board and let your pedals be free to roam the stage? What Are the pros and cons of each for gigging and practice? I have recently reduced my number of pedals to the point where they can all fit in my bass hardshell case. So I am boardless for now to make packing and traveling simpler.
