Hey guys, so my actual concern for the next gig is transporting my pedalboard.

It's a custom sized piece of wood that I made into a pedalboard and it's quite big. I'm still wondering of the best way to transport it.

The thing is I dont have a car in this town so my usual hope is the subway which is fast and free.

I'm thinking of I could transport my pedalboard with as little hassle as possible.


Shoot opinions?

way to transport mine so two RR bags is what I use.

Reduce the size of your board?

Make your board in a box with a lid and a handle.

I wish I could do this but I never took this board as a serious investment. somewhere down the line i'll definitely do what you suggested but I don't think i have the time and funds now till the next concert which is on 22nd

drill through the wood and ziptie the pedals in place (may take two), so hole on each side of pedal.

i am not being an ass here, but do you really need to gig with that big of a board?

i understand that pedals are fun to mess around with at home or use for recording. i love moving pedals around, but i only gig with five pedals tops, two being OD's, a wah and a microvibe, and a proctavia.

Yeah cut back to the bare necessities. Knock up a quick board and find a bag, luggage type thing, at the Salvos as close in size as you can find. Throw some packing in there - foam, towel, blanket, w/e and off you go.

if i am gigging where i usually go there aren't any neon of florescent light near the stage (quite odd for a bar), they just have big signs. i throw the right amound of pedal cables and my 1 spot (battery in the proctavia), and pull out the one spot. with my pedals. keep the board seperate it and throw it together. i can do mine in two minutes max. again i am running less pedals, but i am a minimalist when it comes to gigging. take all i need (with proper backup for certain things).

the less you have the less to watch over for potential theft as well

I actually understand your point on cutting down to bare minimum. I do it myself most of the time except with bigger shows where I rather bring good amount of equipment you know since I'm playing for over an hour. Otherwise it's just a few pieces really.


Anyways, This board is already velcro'd up and everything so all I'm missing is a bag for it but I found a bag for it which is supposed to be a luggage bag for a suit or somehting that goes into your main case. Oh well whatever works right?

What is its dimensions? Get a pedalboard bag based on it. Your pedalboard is maybe a pedal longer than one of my boards used to be. It is wider though. Search here

This.

I built an extremely cheap and simple pedalboard from 2 pieces of wood, velcro and a can of spray paint (build thread here).

Then i bought a gig bag from Thomann, usually destined to huge multi-FX units like the Boss GT-100.
Turns out, it was still a bit bigger than it should, so i sawn off a bit of the top. Now it fits fine, as you can see from the pics on that thread.
