Hi forums

I'm about to get a pedal board. I'm planning on attaching the pedals using velcro. For those of you that do the same- which side of the velcro do you put on the pedals, and which on the board? I'm sure it makes little to no difference, I'm just curious.

Most people put the soft side on the board. There are some that put the rough side on the board since it picks up less lint.

Some people use 3M Dual Lock instead of Velcro.

Really good question. I myself have done both for no particular reason. I have settled on putting the softer side on the pedal and the harder velcro side on the board. My reasoning is that if I do it the other way and remove the pedal for individual use on a wood or tiled floor (stage or club/bar floor) the harder velcro side will slide around the floor more than the softer velrco. Of course you could think the other way that the harder velco will grip a carpet area better. I'm curious if there is a consensus among others. Good question.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

Just remember a little goes a long way on the back of the pedal. The first time I made a pedal board, I covers the entire back of the pedal. Hard as hell to get off and usually just ripped anything glued on the back of the pedal off

I regularly do both i think. lol. likely because I buy pedals used, and most have velcro applied already, so I just apply the opposite to my board. no logic here.

This is what I was thinking, it seems the most logical. Does anyone have a reason for it to go the other way round?

Put some of the blue or green painting tape on the bottom of your pedal before putting the Velcro on. It will stick well and when you remove the Velcro, the bottom of your pedal will be protected by the tape.

Great idea
