Hey guys. I currently have a pedaltrain mini which holds up to 5 pedals. I've finally decided that the mini is to small because I'm looking to incorporate a few new pedals which includes a hefty wah pedal. I am thinking of making a pedalboard with the same dimensions as the pedaltrain PT-2 instead of buying one. I have a few questions though:

1. What is the best wood to make it out of?
2. Does anyone know the dimensions of each specific 'rung' of the pt-2?
3. What are the dimensions of the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power II? (I am going to incorporate space for that just like the pt-2)

I hope you can help
Thanks
Carl

Thanks for the effort man

Are the rungs all the same size on every pedaltrain? Because i see youve said your measured your pt-2 but it says pt-3 on the pic. Just making sure

I would think so, since they're only different sizes to allow more or less pedals on it. I'd imagine they'd keep those dimensions constant.

One more question What are the dimensions of the top rung and the faceplate at the top (where the 2 holes are for putting the power cable through)?

Edit: Also, how far apart should the holes for the power leads be?

Cheers guys

Hi, did you get the exact dimensions for the PT-2 ?

What is the space between each rung ?
On the picture posted it says each rung is 5cm wide but it doesn't say the space between them.
Your help would be really appreciated.

If you want a Pedaltrain go and buy a Pedaltrain.

What's the best wood? The best wood is probably steel or aluminium.

If wood wood ìt doesn't really matter but may impact on how you would joint it. At the end of the day it's a board that you fix pedals to, everything else is just refinement.

Pedal train, and others, make theirs to be as flexible as possible to suit as many people as possible. You only need to suit you so you could get away with a piece of plywood.

my summer project is making a wooden pedal board - I was think of a nice finish wood like a maple/ cherry for the sides and a spruce / maple ( something to sand and stain ) for the top ( ill be putting Velcro over that anyway )

need to get the dimensions right to incorporate my current pedals, room for one or two more, and my amp footswitch.

a 6 /7 degree incline seems to be optimal

the gap between rungs only needs to be big enough for your power cables.... maybe 3/4"
