My setup for this pedal board is GuitarBuddha WahFulltone OCD DistortionMXR Carbon Copy DelayTech 21 Boost RVB all powered by a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus. The build of this pedal board is really solid. It's just a tough piece of metal. The set up is really nice as well. The voodoo lab is mounted underneath so that all of the power wires stay underneath and out of the way. Since there are gaps in between the rows of pedals you can store all of your instrument cables underneath as well. This leaves a really clean, nice looking pedal board. The board also came with velcro so you can stick your pedals on to the metal. This was easy to set up. The velcro I got gets pulled off of the pedalboard occasionally but it has worked pretty well so far. I think this is a fantastic pedal board but it is pretty expensive. I don't use effects nearly as much as I used to so this ends up sitting in my room unused. If I were to go back and invest in a pedalboard, I would just make my own out of an old empty suitcase. This pedal board is high quality and could be used for gigging every night but not quite worth it for me.
Audiofanzine FR's review
I thought about building my own pedalboard for a long time. It would look like... a home-made solution. Then I planned to buy a Rockcase, but the user reviews on this website made me choose a Pedaltrain model and I don't regret my choice.
It was expensive but it's very sturdy and well-designed.
It provides me enough space for all my effect pedals, the fixation system works great, the wiring is very clean (all cables run under the pedals), and the soft case allows me to transport everything I need.
To warp it up: I recommend this product!
It's always painful to have to spend money for something that does nothing for a sonically (and I'll soon buy a power supply, same fight!).
However, it is relatively affordable Pedaltrain used compared to others. I relied on the junior initially but may have one for the same price, I did not hesitate for long.
And finally, not a single regret since once the pedals installed (fast and easy with the velcro) what it's convenient! Only 2 wires to disconnect reconnect, saving time and comfort crazy! Also everything is provided for the upgrade as, since you can add a power supply with the hardware provided, etc.
It is generally quite large, I felt very small with my 5 pedals (one ditto mini format), but it leaves room for future crises GAS (negative or positive? See ....) Very sturdy, strong, but not super heavy. Personally, it weighs less than my guitar when completed (but hey, it's a Les Paul ...), so it suits me fine. The carrying bag is practical and toned with his strap.
Only negative we now cover up: the cover, not very strong, which was rambling on the side. Nothing serious (it does not prevent the cover is closed properly), but it's a shame when we compare the strength of the pedalboard itself.
In short, nothing to throw in there, for the price it is a secondhand good deal, go for it!

patguitar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" well thought"
this is not the custom so you have to think carefully before we going to put the appropriate model.
The soft case is convenient for carrying around here on the shoulder (even if it's heavy) and for an amateur home-made -> REPEAT or home -> concert, that is enough. for a pro who entrusts his PB or who travels a lot, it is probably better to take the hard case.
In summary, a good product, even if ultimately very expensive for what it is.

AceLeppard's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super Useful!"
This pedalboard is dear to the extent that it is just a simple frame mtal, but it becomes quickly realize that this is indeed the quality that you pay: it's solid, and the cover seems to be also provided.
I got the power brick Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus power in order:
-MXR Micro Amp
MXR Carbon Copy-
everything returns nickel, There are even room for three pedals easily add standard size. Pedaltrain had the good ide to provide cornires mtal in to fix the Voodoo Lab as pdalier, but has apparently forgotten prvoir the holes for the mount: -1 point because for the badgers DIY like myself, takes time and effort supplmentaires, not to mention also that we must raise the same self-velcro (while adding mchamment becomes dirty). In return, we may have the velcro "factory" as we want!
Pedaltrain seems to offer a large enough, then you have to choose A model based on the place you need!
The report quality price ... everything is expensive but I think the quality that is paid. At least then there is quiet in terms of its hardware! I would do so this choice knowingly

zonzonzon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not bad at all."
After comparing the net different pedals, I decided for it.
what I like most is the angle, size, convenience, the possibility of a power supply meter below.
on the other hand like not having to stick or even the velcro on the aluminum structure is to be boring and I noticed that the velcro strips (very) slightly larger than the bars aluminum. it is an annoying because it was a small piece of velcro that goes beyond (1 or 2 mm ok, but hey ...). for the moment nothing moved, the velcro is excellent! I set him a homemade power supply and it works nikel. on the other hand it is too expensive for what it is (the aluminum !!!), even while it comes with. he travels a lot and the cover is good. settings one can move the pedals but that's normal, it's a soft-box.
Surely the choice I would do, despite some flaws, I think it's one of the best pedals on the market.

Zak58's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect but ..."
The angle, the possibility of a power supply in Desousa, space for pedals and cables below the quality of Velcro ... In short, the pedalboard is perfect for me.
However, there are negative points (it does not affect the pedalboard itself but must know!)
The price is frankly much. Fortunately, once you have one, for long.
The soft case: a little too soft in my opinion. It is lighter, of course, but the pedals are too well protected. I intend to enhance the occasion. Had I known, I opted for the hard case, but mégalourd indestructible. Think about it if you want it and if you Pedaltrain pedal expensive or fragile ...

8oris's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Solid, Simple and extremely simple"
§ § What thing do you like most/least about it? § §
the all in one solution: everything is there: Velcro tabs Tie food, softcase well done with a pocket in addition
Tabs attachments only work for a power VoodooLab.
A tad heavy (but it is also a sign of strength).
§ § Did you try many other models before buying it? § §
§ § What is your opinion about the value for the price? § §
Contrary to what is written in an earlier opinion, the velcro works great, the pedals do not move.
As for the settings of the pedals that can "move" is obvious when one chooses the model Softcase.
The structure is solid, and appears to be resistant to the blows of Tatana. Moreover, it is slightly tilted allowing easy access to the pedals at the rear.
For information, I put the pedals: a Radial Big Shot EFX, an Ibanez FL9, Maxon OD9 1 and 5 bosses and there is room for 3 or 4 pedals tight. In short, it is wide and so much more!
§ § Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? § §
To see the long term but in principle it is a big yes.

jcdc1967's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
What I love about the Pedaltrain (and more are not compared the briefcase boss):
- Robust frame and the fact that we can pass all the cables underneath. In the end it's so clean trs
- The capacity I have a wah-wah, the equivalent of five single and two boss boss double ... (Ie the equivalent of three pedals and more simple than what can be put in the briefcase boss).
- The cover: trs trs convenient way to store the cables and other accessories (with the boss you need a bag or briefcase and more). I prfr the cover for the frame with 10 pedals PSE dj several pounds. With the flight I was afraid that PSE trs heavy. I was right and I do not regret that choice.
Its default (and which are the benefits of the briefcase boss)
- Even with the velcro the pedals moving (this may have m'nerver
- As a cover, sometimes the rglages buttons move the pedals (so it must be his rglages checker before playing)
- No power supply
The solution I bring to the problem is that the velcro. What I like bcp in the briefcase boss, what are the foam pads that are drawings for boss pedals (single and double), but that can also be plugged in to dcouper p pedals of other brands.
1). I was lucky to find a foam plate 5mm thick (do not) than I first dcoupe the size of the Pedaltrain in which I then r alis dcoupes of the locations and size of the pedals.
2). In this foam pad then I dcoup notches 1cm-square height of the passage of power cables and jacks for each pedals.
3). I removed all pads that are under the pedals so that the surface is very flat (keep them for future resale possibe ca change ... often find a guitarist
4). I chose to work with double sided tape plutt the velcro
When all this silent prt, I put strips of double-tape all along the 4 "strips" of the Pedaltrain. First I placed the foam plate, then the pedals in their locations and I ended with the cables ... The tour silent jou ... ca is not likely to move
Let's be clear with the double-tape ca does not move but you have to be on his shot because the advantage of all velcro is that you can change the config of the pedals. In my case I set my pedals and I have not changed for two years so ... But if I change, I must dcoupe a new plate, etc ... The manipulation takes an hour.
For food, I have the pedals boss TU2 tuner that can power other pedals (8).
In the end I will not 8 the solution of the foam and I prfrais the briefcase boss (despite the lower capacity. Amlioration With that I bring and I put 9 I would do the same choice without hsiter. I am also slowly tempted by the MODEL pro ... Unless the boss does a suitcase so that puts more pedals.
