Pedal boards are devices are used for organizing and stabilizing guitar pedals, preventing the jacks and cables from everyday wear and tear, and storing guitar pedals for easy transportation. They have flat, padded bases for securing each pedal in place even when in use. They are made with extruded edges to protect the sides of the pedals from damage and to keep the pedals in place during transportation.

Choosing Pedal Boards (Buying tips)
Pedal board panel: Choose a pedal board with a low profile panel that allows the board’s grip to grasp even the most uneven of floors.
Edge moldings: To prevent sharp burrs from forming on the edges while traveling, choose a pedal board with shockproof extruded edges made of R-PVC material.
