They don't need to be if you build one yourself.

Plywood and velcro isn't expensive. DIY FTW!

And some laquer finish never hurt either .

Also, I put 2 rubber feet on [where the V's are - underneath the board].

Search for threads by "R_H_C_P" then, he made a thread about a nice simple but effective board.

Well, here's what I do...

1. Get a 12" x 24" (or w/e size you need) piece of birch plywood (good stuff)

2. Apply a couple layers of laquer/varnish and, if you want, paint, to the board.

3. Buy 2 rubber feet (w/ metal bases), put them underneath the leading edge of the board, and screw them down from above (lolololol).

4. Any other customizing...

I'm currently making a website on everything to do with pedal boards (build, what pedals, etc.), I'll show you when it's done .

Don't buy the materials if they're too expensive. Improvise. My board is made of a panel from an old bunk bed, various parts from a wire mounting kit, and feet and screws I nicked from my old amp.

to DimeTime:

(IE basically crashes from lag everytime I try to quote that message..)

I found a good piece of plywood the right size but paint it?
plywood is rather rough so I'd rather just cover it up.. what about velcro so the pedals can stick to it o.O
and ooh at the bases, wouldn't of thought of that

thanks :P

I wanna' see the site when it's done, sounds cool.

Ya, for sure man.

Oh, and I didn't paint mine, but I guess you could if you wanted to...
And yes, I used velcro; fuzzy pieces on the board, rough pieces on the bottom of the pedals .

Good luck .
