The Big Mistake
Do you use guitar effects pedals? If you do, then you will probably use some kind of guitar pedal board, but did you know that using the wrong guitar pedal board could be damaging your pedals and preventing you from performing to your best, without you even knowing? You see the biggest problem today is that people spend so much time finding the right effects pedals for their sound, that they spend little or no time thinking about their guitar effects board.
The problem is that although guitarists use effects boards, the majority of them buy the wrong type of case which leads to problems and more money later on. The biggest problem is that guitarists are not aware of what they should be looking for in a guitar pedal board case.
Believe it or not there are loads of different requirements to consider before you can start looking to buy one. The trap most people fall into is that they start browsing the internet not really knowing what they are looking for and then end up buying the wrong case for their pedals.
The Easy Solution
Unbelievably, you do not have to spend hours analyzing each effects board available to you, all you have to do is use this solution before you start looking so that you have a clear idea of what you are looking for. By asking your self these questions you will save yourself time, money and avoid the common mistakes people make. Identify what you need by determining the size you need, how many effects pedals do you have? Do you need a soft case or a hard case? what is your budget? Do you need a power supply?
It amazes me why guitarists will spend hundreds of dollars on effects pedals and then spend little or no time looking at guitar pedal boards. It doesn’t make sense! If your spending that much, then it is only common sense that you should protect them to keep them in good condition, isn’t it? By taking these points (size, weight, budget, accessories etc.) into consideration you will be able save yourself time hassle and money by avoiding the common mistakes made.
However, remember do not rush into buying a guitar pedal board, take your time and have a clear idea of what you want before you start looking for one. Think like you were buying a new Gibson or Fender Stratocaster, you wouldn’t rush into buying one of them without thinking about it!
