Pedalboards can get quite pricey, at least for me, I've gotta save my bucks for other things like pedals, accessories, guitar mods, stuff that goes towards the band, and that burger king around the corner of my neighborhood...

would it be cheaper to just build one?

if so, i need some major help, i was just thinking of buying a cheap board of wood, and some velcro, and a surge protecter/extension cord, and then arrange them like every other pedalboard i've seen

is there a flaw to this?
i am a complete noob at pedalboards, it's not until now that i realize that i need one, so any help would be appreciated

thanks

i just finished mine like an hour ago
i just used plywood
made a base then made a raised platform.
took like half an hour
Now officially has too much gear to list

Our bass player did exactly what you are talking about, and it turned out great.

diy is a good way to go in terms of cost and customization


and in terms of just buying wood, industrial velcro, and surge protector thats generally how ive seen em done and thats also what i did, but theres nothing wrong with it although some people prefer more elaborate pedalboards

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

Go for it man. I did that, used an old board I had lying around, some velcro for the pedals and for the surge protector. It turned out great. Only real help I can give you is to leave room should you feel the need for more pedals and also to build it so that its comfortable to use ie, maybe raise at an angle for ease.
