    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Why not make your own? I did and it works as well as any I've seen.

    i just took a big plank, attached "feet" to it, attached large strips of velcro to it and then velcroed my effects and the power strip to it. I get compliments all the time on it, though it's hardly a work of art.

    Hey, dumpster-diving has it pluses, you know! ;)

    I have used homemade jobbies in the past, too, but I recently picked up a PedalTrain. I haven't gigged out with it yet, but it seems like a nice setup, and the case it very tough.

    Ditto. I got the NYC Gigman Plus. I'll post a pic this weekend. It's verry nice and reasonably priced.

    Here is mine (2 tier) made from plywood and velcro with a no-slip mat attached to the bottom.
    (it is an old picture, my effects are different now, but I allowed flexible room on my pedalboard to accomidate changes). Plus only cost <$40 total for all materials

    (Just recently posted this on HC, sorry about this crosspost)

    You could always do some DIY, it's not that difficult. Here's some pics of mine, just a piece of plywood with speaker cloth glued and stapled to it. Initially I used velcro (grips like crazy on the cloth) but I got tired of the pedals moving around (the glue on the velcro didn't work very well) so I put some metal bits in the corners of the pedals and screwed them down. Rock solid. The case is a cheapo camera/tool case ($20) which I put some leftover detachable hinges in. The board leans on the hinge screws so it sits at a convenient angle. That also gives some room for cables underneath the board in addition to the big space in the lid. As you can see I'm an EBS junkie. I hope they never make any new pedals. :)
