Stormleader's review"Decent pedalboard after some mods!"

Boss BCB-60 Pedal Board
I got the BOSS BCB-60 pedelboard in a trade, and it's what I currently use on stage. Stock, it can only hold 6 standard BOSS pedals, or 4 pedals and a wah. Pretty sad eh? What I did was I took out the foam, and put Velcro and a riser in the back. This way I can fit MUCH more onto the pedal board. The board itself is built decently, it's a very sturdy plastic, and the patch-bays are metal with metal jacks. I haven't had any problems with the patch-bays yet, no tone sucking, etc.

The power supply that came with it is good, for a daisy chain that is. I had to switch to a BBE Supa Charger that has isolated outlets because I was getting ground loop hum. That said, if you aren't running pedals in both the effects loop of your amp AND in front of your amp you should be fine.

What I don't like is that the latches on the case do seem a little flimsy, but so far they've held up just great. Pretty much everything on this case seems fairly high-quality in general though, and being BOSS, it probably will hold up great over time.

Overall, I am very happy with this pedelboard. It has served me well, but BOSS could have improved the original design by not using their silly foam system that absolutely wastes so much space. Would I recommend this to people? Well, somewhat. I am currently building my own pedalboard that is both bigger and angled, and I can build it cheaper than I can get the BOSS pedalboard for new, and I know it will be exactly what I want. So, if you are handy with tools, I suggest you build your own. If not, the BOSS is a good board to get.

A true wonder!

Everything has been thought-out...
Several parts can be removed for a clean cable run and to match several non-standard pedal sizes... You'll need less than half an hour to fasten your pedals (5 pieces in my case) and that's it!

Pedal and cable chaos belong to the past. I don't need to spend a quarter of an hour setting up my system at the beginning of each rehearsal anymore...

You only have to plug the guitar cable, the amp cable and the external PSU.

Based on my experience I would surely buy this product again! And I regret not having bought it earlier!

Boss BCB-60 Pedal Board
First, connector level, we have:

-INPUT Jack, in which branch of his guitar.
-SEND Jack, which we go to the first pedal.
RETURN A Jack-in which branch the output of the last pedal.
-RETURN B Jack, RETURN A Jack idem.

Note that you can use either ... or 2 (see tip that I posted some time ago!)

-A OUTPUT Jack, to go to the amp if the pedals are in the RETURN A.
-OUTPUT B Jack, to go to the amp if the pedals are in the RETURN B.

You can also use 2 (style preamp and FX Loop ... also see tips)

PSC-IN Jack where you plug the power supply provided (note that this is a 1000m / A, which can feed between 6 and 10 pedals).
OUT DC-Jack, which share the multi "spider" that feeds the pedals.

Level accessories, everything is also provided: 5 patches short, 3 long patches, cable 6 spider maze and alim 1000m / A 9V ACDC!
I said not to have known buzz or other noise with these accessories ...
There are also 3 pre-cut foam + a spare!

Its outer dimensions (mm): 670 width. x 370 prof. x 100 high.
This gives internally for some pedals 630 x 230
Finally, this case weighs 3.8 kg


I used this for 2 years Pedalboard ... at home and rehearsals only.
I had no problem with. I sold it in excellent condition ... The guy who bought it for me here certainly could talk!
So when I see opinions that squarely bury this bag, I do not completely agree. After that, do not be a nag, and take care of his gear a minimum!
Nevertheless, it is true that if you turn 150 days per year, it may not be the best investment ... I admit it! But someone like me, go to the small repeats once per week and leaves the floor at home in front of the cabinet, it must be done expressly for the screw up!

Ultimately, its main drawback is not being able to put a few pedals, small format ... It is certain that those who have a pedalboard with all the different effects that exist will go their way.
Personally, I: a wha (and yes!), Tuner, EQ, chorus and delay.
I used the 2 outputs, one to the amp, the other in the loop (see tips)

Wha on, it is sufficient to oter skates and put some velcro to stabilize nickel ... it fits, even if it is limited in height ... Usually the case is closed only during transportation is not it?

You can also turn to foam and Velcro everywhere. At this point, without Wha, you can easily get 4 and 3 Boss MXR level format.

I also liked the chute in which cache son spider and long patches.

Everything is connected ... there remains only "plugger" his guitar and put the power supply into the socket.

So it is not a Pedal Train (soft case or hard case), but it does the job well.
This review looks only at me but I wanted to share it with any interested because, I repeat, it's worth it!

Zique good at all.

Boss BCB-60 Pedal Board
Mega problem: the thickness of the cover is too small. If you use a format pedals higher than the Boss, or even just a wah, well you can not close the board!
Morality: we need a padded gig bag. It increases the budget ...
Second criticism: the preformed foam sheets are perfect for the Boss, but again, if you use other pedals, it is better to use these plates velcro.On therefore pays for nothing, as the cover.
Poorly thought!

Seb666zombie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not bad at all! but some limitations"

Boss BCB-60 Pedal Board
I use it for 2 months.
I was using an old suitcase before, kind of business man briefcase.

The exterior of the boss is super tough plastic fasteners BUT seem fragile at the same time I did not long, however it does not feel the strength ... I strap the thing to tear it off anyway just in case, but I'm a little manic ... it is very resistant in the trunk of a car or truck, on the other hand I will never drive in the hold of a plane, IT'S NOT A FLYCASE!

The interior is well designed, I stalled 5 pedals in which two monsters (EBS dual drive and synthesize EHX bass) with no problem.
I think it would be good to change the diet, it does not generate spurious BUT it only gives the 9V 1A only and therefore not enough for my pedals.

The protective foam are very useful, even with pedals that are not the BOSS brand, once fit snugly, it does not move. One senses that the pedals are well protected, they do not balladent in transit.

Rail to hide jacks is truly magical!

The jacks are provided with excellent quality!

In use, it is a pedal board, once you've done the installation there is more to plug jacks and playing ... and that's really the best!

At the finish it is ideal for a semi pro musician who does not make international tours by plane, I'll just quickly change the power and it will be all good!

Boss BCB-60 Pedal Board
I used this pedalboard Boss Bcb60 about 2 weeks.
Post-Lyt 32, I wanted something portable, convenient, not too big and much food.
I chose this case as including a power supply, it allowed her to have under the foot pedals IMMEDIATE APRS transport.
Unfortunately, I feel that the power supply n'tait really not the height. I was soon ringing dsagrables trs, or DIFFERENT background noise when I passed by the pedalboard. The power supply is in my change.
Also, if prdcoupes foams are very practical for the boss, mxr or ibanez in standard, do not put no pedals largest dcouper these foams: a beginning do a lot of effort and dpenses for average benefits.
Something else: the plastic of the box is cheap trs, which leaves me doubts about his taking; you suspect that I could not vrifier this point ^ ^

I sold trs quickly to invest in a Pedaltrain + Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 plus. While not the same budget, but the real hardware that is reliable and what is expected of him!
I advise you to do so, or else take a simple box and to add a good power supply: FLEXIBILITY and performance will be much more to go with this pedalboard dcevant you ..!

Boss BCB-60 Pedal Board
tough, he never let him go, not hurt at all, no cracks, the cables are supplied with good quality (even if we buy more time), there's room unless you are a buff effect and tap, stereo output, can use it before the amp and in the loop, include a Wha or a volume pedal, good power supply ... short, it's all good, it's light and strong j'demandais no more!

super product that ages well!

It's the Boss, it's clear.

It opens, it configures its pedals as we see fit, it manages to do a proper by passing the cables in the gouttire (mention it specially for that matter) in order to have a cblage own (which is not always empty).

Once a cbl move, and it is cal will not s'abmer like a backpack.

Go I will do my shit disturber: It's always a bit much to lease back its jacks dpart properly, although all must struggle to hide in the gouttire (I'm manic-level organization).

The power supply is more than good, I have seen no sound dgradation (breath among other things) by using it.

I use this for about 1 month pedalboard and I'm hooked.

Most
- Super convenient every respect
- Security and took our pedals if Chres in its foam packaging
- We spend no time for any dcbler recbler 1 / 2 hour later (out of rpt 'back home ...) -> = BCB-60 Plug & Play <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" />

The -
- Bah plastoc appearance of something ...
- The clips I have to close the bag looks a little light, I am careful but I think if fit somewhere, it will l.
Level prices, it's bin good Boss, necessarily has a cot, but I think it's well damped plutt given the fact that all Jack, the garland and the power supply is provided
(-> Pay nine 111 shipping included, prices vary widely from one dealer to another I noticed this product, be well informed before investing)
I would do this choice? I think so.

A true wonder!

Everything has been thought ...
Several parties to dismantle the cables and proper pedals to accommodate non-standard ... Half an hour to set properly all these pedals (5 in my case) and you're done!

Finished the bulk disordered pedals and cable stuffed in the bag. Finished the quarter of an hour before each repeated for all and replace as much time when you return home or ...

He left with a cable from the guitar, a cable to the amp, and power supply.

With experience, oh yes I would do this choice! And I regret not having done it sooner!
