    Do curved pedal board cases exist from any company? Or even a boomerang shaped ones?
    I do a lot of singing and would much rather have my (8 or 9) pedals positioned better/tighter next to the mic stand.
    I've seen the dogbone (kinda small), but I'd rather it be an actual hard case with removable lid.

    I figure I'll probably have to build my own board/case, but my singer who's a former cabinet builder thinks that will be a real PITA task, which a 3-angle boomerang will probably be what I'll have to make. I just don't have time for projects.

    I had a boomerang shaped one in the past, was a nice idea but didn't work in practice you end up with a lot of wasted space.

    Best way is 3 PT Mini or Nanos ;) or depending on your needs 3 Grande's
  4. Maybe just make your own board whatever shape you want then just find a case it'll fit in. One of the drummers i used to jam with used a huge skb keyboard case for his hardware.

    The curved board is a nice idea. But a curved case wouldn't be practical. You wouldn't be able to stack it easily, rest it on its side, etc...
    You're better off getting a curved board (ala Holeyboards) and put it inside a classic rectangular hard case.

    All great idea fellas!

    Yeah this is what I had in mind;


    or even;


    Oh yeah, I'm afraid of that possibly happening too! I'm hoping if the dimensions aren't gargantuan, it *should* still pack okay in the back of the band's truck.
  7. There's a familiar shape! ;)

    If you can find an Ikea GORM shelf, find the corner shelves and a straight piece.

    3 rectangular boards hooked up with leads between should be a decent enough project/acquisition with little hassle.
  9. Bow case will fix ya up!

  10. Room for mods to make it work...
