How to Choose a Pedalboard in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Look For One That Fits 5 - 10 Pedals if You’re Building a Board for the First Time
  2. Choose a Pedalboard With Power Supply Mounting for Quick Assembly 
  3. Opt For a Slanted Pedalboard to Fit a Power Supply Underneath 
  4. Pick a Pedalboard That Weighs Less Than 5kg for Travel and Gigging
  5. Seek Out Additional Accessories Like Gig Bags, Velcro and Wire Ties  

1. An Average Pedal Measures 7 x 3 x 6cm: Check How Many Pedals the Board Can Fit

 1. An Average Pedal Measures 7 x 3 x 6cm: Check How Many Pedals the Board Can Fit

The first thing you have to consider is the size, as this will determine how many pedals it can fit. Of course, this depends on the size of the pedals you own, but your average-sized stompbox is around 7 x 13 x 6 cm. However, pedalboards come in all shapes and sizes, from smaller boards that can fit 4 or 5 to larger ones that can take 15 or 16


 
Our only piece of advice would be to think about how you would like the finished board to look in the future and choose a model in line with that rather than one that caters for what you've got now. The likelihood is that later down the line, you’re going to make many other pedal purchases and you’re going to need more space.

Got a bit of extra space? Check out our 10 favourite delay pedals!

2. Choose a Pedalboard With Power Supply Mounting for Quick and Convenient Assembly

2. Choose a Pedalboard With Power Supply Mounting for Quick and Convenient Assembly

Usually, these come in the form of pre-drilled holes on the underside of the board. From there, you’ll need to pick up some extra brackets and a few screws, but it means you’ll be faster assembling your rig when it comes time to play. In turn, this means more time doing what you love and less time mucking around. 


Finding out whether a pedalboard has space for power supply mounting can be difficult, especially if the pictures don’t show you the underside. To help you out, we’ve answered that question in the specification tables below each product. 

Don't forget! You're going to need patch cables to chain everything together

3. Opt For a Slanted Pedalboard to Fit Your Power Supply Underneath

3. Opt For a Slanted Pedalboard to Fit Your Power Supply Underneath

A pedalboard can come in two different construction forms, either slanted or flat. Deciding between the two often comes down to personal preference, as some people find one style more comfortable than others.

 
However, slanted styles do have a slight advantage – they allow you to fit the power supply for your pedals underneath the board, which in turn allows you more space on top of it. These designs can even come with mounting options for the power supply, meaning you can neaten the whole board up as well as cutting down on time when setting up.


In defence of flat boards, they do often come as part of a hard case. Having a hard case is a smart option if you’re a frequent touring musician, as they’ll offer better protection for your gear. That said, these types of cases can be bought for the slanted boards too.

Not all pedalboards come with a built-in power supply. Click here for the 10 best!

4. Pick a Pedalboard That Weighs Less Than 5kg for Travel and Gigging

If you’re frequently gigging, touring or even taking your board to record or practice with other musicians, then you’re going to want to consider the weight. Of course, this will vary depending on the size of the board you choose and what type of case you opt for. 


Board weight can range from less than a kilo to over 5 kg, and when you consider you’re likely going to be carrying your guitar as well, this can soon add up to a heavy load. 


We would recommend that you consider going for a soft case if you’re walking with your equipment often as it won’t be as heavy. If you’re driving or using public transport to get from A to B, then you may be OK with a more cumbersome hard case. 

5. Look For Additional Accessories Like Gig Bags, Velcro and Wire Ties

5. Look For Additional Accessories Like Gig Bags, Velcro and Wire Ties

While the pedalboard is the main bit of kit we’re looking for, it's always good to try and find products that have a few extras thrown in too. 


  • Gig bags: come as either a soft or hard case and, in some instances, you can choose which you would prefer. However, the hard ones will likely increase the price of your purchase.

  • Velcros: for sticking pedals to the board, so if it comes with the purchase, it means you don’t have to worry about buying some separately and risk getting strips that don't really work.

  • Wire ties: for tidying up the wires underneath the board. Although it’s rare, they’re a welcome addition as they can make arranging your power and signal chain much more straightforward.
