    I have been using a Radial Boneyard board for a while and it has been everything I wanted in a board. The bag they sell for it is a Kaces keyboard bag. Look at the dimensions and you might find a nicer/padded bag for the same $, or close to it. It is one of those things where I bough it and never had a second thought. Well built, great covering, nice angle, plenty of room...

    kinda pricey but the pedaltrains are very nice, but I would say worth it.

    Rondo Music pedalboards are cheap and people usually are happy with them.
     
  6. go for the pedaltrains man... they rock... just choose one out of the 3 sizes and you should be alright...

    Great Quality, Great options.. Awesome prices..

    I'm gonna get a board from them, once I have all the pedals for my "micro rig" all purchased.

    They do custom work, too.

    I was gonna build my own pedalboard. I real big nice one with matrix board so I could route my cables through the board and such. I planned on having a lot more pedals than I have now, but after getting my Whammy, I feel set. What i'm gonna do, just so I don't have to put all my pedals in a bag and set them all up, is get a piece of plywood, drill a few holes, and zip-tie my pedals down.

    Ghetto-- but easy and it works. Oh yeah, did I mention it's cheap? :hyper:

    I've dealt with Mike a few times in the past and have always been utterly impressed with both his handywork and knowledge of effects in general.

    But for someone like me, it's a bad idea to get him on the phone. I swear we talked a few hours about Electro-Harmonix gear alone.

    If you are on a budget, you can ebay Rondo stuff for about $35-40. I ordered one but it is still in transit.

    Seemed like to me (and I have built many of my own) that building your own always left you a little open to accidental pedal damage. I tried to build one with a top once but could never find the right hinges. I always got my supplies from Lowes or Home Depot, but they don't really carry much in the way of pedal board material. ;)

    Anyway, I have been pedalboad-less for a while. But when I get all the pedals I want (two more left) then I am really going to get up with NYC pedal boards. I hear nothing but good things about their work.

    I know you probably dont want to hear this, but Im anti pedalboards. At least anti ac connectors. I made my own pedal board - painted, styled, and put handles and candles on it (yes candles - very cool idea IMHO). Well, the reason for my dislike is because they sometimes cause unwanted hiss/noise and because of that I am all about batteries.
    My 2 cents - Mike
     
  18. yea power supplys do add some hiss.

    i use the onespot daisy chain and ac plug it adds some his but it saves a bunch of money.

    meh I hate batteries... 9v gets pretty expensieve after awhile.. and I have one that's a 12v, and I'm adding one (hopefully) that's straight AC.

    I've never hada problem with noise from the transformer.. I use a Godlyke Power-All, and it's pretty quiet. Noise is always from some OTHER source in my rig *L*
