"best price, good board"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Not much to say about a pedal board, case and power supply. This is a really good board, seems very strong, I wouldn't use it as a jack-stand for a truck, but maybe a motorcycle, but it's only about two inches thick, so never mind. It's made of blow molded polypropelene and seems very rigid. The set-up comes with a velcro carpet attached to the board and two pretty long velcro loop strips (cool). As far as appearance, it's black. It's a lot better than having wires and stomp boxes layin all over the place.
The bag is made of typical gig bag material, straps seem to have adequit stitching, not super heavy duty like car seat belts, but pretty good. Time will tell on this. It has a side pocket that's large enough to carry guitar cords, extra strings picks etc. It has a "free" made in china sticker on the inside. lol.
I don't have a lot of stomp boxes so this is perfect size for me. I use a crybaby wah, a boss CS-3 compressor, bad monkey tube overdrive, and a T-rex reverb. Not just to brag, but to let you know that the power supply has plenty of power for these with no problems at any settings (seems to have room to spare). I get no buzzing or humming from the power supply (it's usually a few feet away from the boxes) . You could probably cram one more pedal on the board if you want. The daisy chain for the power supply only supports 5 boxes tho. Speaking of the daisy chain, it has 90 degree, size "N" molded in connectors. Kind of cheesy. If you know how to solder and have a radio shack nearby, no problem. Eventually these will have to be replaced/repaired. Refer back to the "made in china" sticker.
Overall I give this product great reviews because for the money you can't beat it. And ZZOUNDS has the best deal on it.
I am a bedroom musician with mucho decades of experience. I do an occasional jam with the house band at a local nightclub on open mic night and have a bedroom recording studio. This bag and board are perfect for me.
