    I have the last Gator Board, I like it, best bang for the buck, comes with a bag, power supply, and cables. Although it is particle board, prolly not built for a world tour.. I have since added my Line R G10 wireless too. one plug for power, and good to go!

    Im not sure of that exact make (pm him about it) but there are too many custom pedal board companies out there from trailer trash pedalboards to blackbird pedalboards to rolf to friedman to groundswell etc etc etc.
    Check em out they are all awesome and all a little different but be prepared to spend $500 on a board that size.

    Those arent in the same league as the guys i listed. Gator makes solid stuff but its very utilitarian. The ones i listed make gorgeous wood or tolex wrapped boards with locking nuetrix jacks and midi in and out and are just plain sexy. Imho that board isnt pretty enough for me. I know im vein and im ok with it.

    My A rig is on that board. I put the Line 6 G30 receiver under the board to save space.

    I love your idea for the power supply connector - I need to do that!

    Sorry didn't know you were being brand specific, just size specific.

    Hey Lefty...not gonna steal the OP's thread but just want to know why you running your BB with so much bass? I'm trying to dial mine in for my LP and right now am running gain/treb/bass at noon. What style music you playing?

    Replies are opening endless doors here :)

    I believe I am done deciding on ready made or built.. it will be a ready made... so now it is about wood or aluminium.. I see the aluminium looks more sexy actually.. so I am between the pedaltrain classic and gator GPB

    I am not aiming for a 30"+ board... 2 rows 20" would be perfect

    Yes very close.. looks so sexy !
    i am surprised with the price ($109 for the 24")... However, i feel the aluminium plate is very thin and weaker than the gator GPB and definitely the pedaltrain !

    It's dialed for a Tele. I roll it back for humbuckers.

    you'd think, but it's plenty sturdy. I think that even if you are pushing 300 lbs that board would be fine. I've seen several of them being used recently..

    the pedaltrains are fine. I have one, I hate the giant gaps in the board though. if you want to run mini pedals, they don't attach well because they don't span the cavern between. they are tough, though... way over-engineered if you ask me.
    they work, there's a reason they are kinda the standard... I'd take them over particle board, which is one beer spill away from failure.

    the other guy I play with a lot just swapped his pedaltrain for a voodoo labs pedalboard... it's great. also notice it TOO is aluminum, and doesn't even have the side bolsters to stiffen it, yet still plenty durable... the actually IS pushing 300lbs, and almost stands on it when he is using his volume or Wah

    This is my exact view on the pedaltrain!!

    This voodoo lab is awesome.. very close to the Gator GBP-BAK !

    My office colleague uses this for laptop... would that work ? :D

    Sure. I think it's known as the 'IKEA' board. I would drill some holes in it to run cables.

    Yes it is IKEA but it is plastic. I will pass by them and see if they have any stronger versions !!

    With the few pedals I have, I wouldn't even drill for cables !

    The IKEA one is so weak... it is so elastic :(

    This one is offered locally for less than $20
