    It was an answer to your question i.e. do not go with the flat model.
    BP.
    p.s. The angled version is better than flat or tier.
    p.s.s. Vote has been cast!

    Here's what I have, and it's great for a small board. Comes with a tote bag to carry your board and all cables. GPTBLK-large.jpg

    I run a "one-spot" to power my pedals. but there's room underneath to install a power supply that stays hidden.

    Angled for sure. I built my own and didn't angle it and i wish i did. Been meaning to cut it on an angle but been too lazy to take it all apart.

    This is a great starter pedal board. I started off with this for several years before upgrading.

    Don't the knobs on the TS get in the way of the treadle of the other two? Just asking:)

    Is it well built? I came across some negative reviews regarding the built quality and the poor power supply (if you pick the powered model)

    Angled. Preferably with a nice, wide slot on the back, for routing cables, storing power supply underneath and keepin everything in place.

    Angled, with room for the PSU underneath and holes for the cabling on the mounting surface.

    Mine seems to be well built, I've had no structural issues with mine. But, I do not gig, I'm a home player that occasionally will jam with some friends. So it doesn't get much abuse.

    I don't gig too... but I have 3 kids under 4 years old... worse and more dangerous than worst drunk gig fans !!
    So I am really considering aluminium board

    I have a 4 and a 2 year old, I can definitely relate. The only thing my girls want to do is rock my wah back and forth for me while I play. And, they make me play the same 12 bar blues shuffle in E for 15 minutes while they run around and dance. Good stuff!!!

    I had same minor issues till I got the flashback delay which is small. I spent half a day looking for it till I found it in the kitchen! Now I put my pedals on the amp head while I am not using them !

    My daughter recently managed to change and save the changes to my main Amplifire preset... argh! :D
    She's just 11 months old. I wonder if there's a way to just turn off the physical knobs...
