More and more, guitar players everywhere are choosing to go with custom pedalboards in place of more boring mass-produced ones. However, with these custom boards becoming increasingly popular, you’re probably wondering what makes a good custom pedalboard.

In our opinion, a good custom pedalboard is one that allows you to customize every aspect of the board, including the size, color, finish, and additional features.

What Makes Pedal Pad Custom Pedalboards Better Than All The Rest

The main draw to building your own custom pedalboard is that you have complete control over every aspect of the pedalboard’s design, however, if you are planning on building a pedalboard by yourself for the first time, you may be surprised how difficult it is to pull off. 

Building a custom pedalboard requires a certain amount of skill when it comes to carpentry and electrical work, and while you can learn these things skills by yourself, you might end up feeling disappointed with the quality of your board if you’re learning how to do everything on the fly. And that’s not to mention the time, effort, and money you’ll likely spend during the building process.

That’s where Pedal Pad comes in. Instead of taking the risk and spending hours on building a board that might not turn out how you want, Pedal Pad’s professional board builders have the skills and expertise to take your pedalboard vision and turn it into a reality.

When it comes to creating your dream board, Pedal Pad is the company guitar players everywhere trust the most. Here are just a few more reasons why other pedalboard companies just can’t compete with Pedal Pad custom pedalboards.

Handmade and Built to Last

Every single Pedal Pad pedalboard is handmade in our factory by our talented teams of custom pedalboard builders who give special attention to every detail of the board’s construction, so when you order a Pedal Pad pedalboard, you know that your board will look and function exactly how you want it to. 

Still, when you put that much thought into designing a custom pedalboard, you want to make sure that it’s durable and will stand the test of time, so we use only the highest quality Baltic Birch wood and ATA-approved fittings that ensure that every board we produce is built to last.

The Perfect Size to Fit All Your Favorite Pedals

The most important function of your pedalboard is to house all your favorite effects pedals, so having the right amount of room on the pedal deck is essential. While you may want to leave a bit extra space for expansion if you want to attach a new pedal somewhere down the road, not every guitar player wants to play with 20 different pedals all the time. 

No matter if you’re the type of player who only wants a few pedals on deck to dial in their tone or you’re a full-on shoegazer who wants to have a beast of a pedalboard that intimidates the guitarists in every other band you play with, with a Pedal Pad custom pedalboard you can ensure that you have the exact amount of space you need.

Pedal Pad pedalboards are an all-in-one pedalboard/hard case solution, and one of the beneficial features of this design is that it leaves plenty of your for storage below the pedal deck. This ensures that the cables in your pedal chain have room to breathe and allows you to store all your extra cables, zip ties, and pedals down below so that you never have to worry about forgetting something at home.

Pedal Pad aims to make settings up and tearing down your pedalboard as easy as plugging in and playing, and one of the ways they do that is by allowing you to add power inlets, outlets, and switches to your board. 

This, combined with all that extra space below the pedal deck, makes it easy to add an integrated power supply that can be kept plugged into your pedals and the board, making powering your pedals way easier.
