A pedal board is a convenient way to organise and transport your arsenal of effects pedals. Whether you’re simply running a tuner and an Ibanez Tube Screamer or a fleet of stompboxes that would make Kevin Shields sweat, a pedal board is an essential ingredient of your guitar rig.

A pedal board is an incredibly useful, simple and reliable piece of equipment that can make playing gigs, rehearsing and recording with effects pedals a lot easier. By mounting your pedal collection to a pedal board, you can leave them set up, patched in, powered up and ready to go at a moment’s notice. Plus, many pedal boards are slightly titled to make stomping on your guitar pedals more accessible - especially handy if you’re regularly switching effects on and off whilst performing. As well as making setting up your pedals quicker, a pedal board is a much safer way to transport your stompboxes than carrying them around loosely.

When putting together a pedal board, make sure you have enough patch cables to connect all your pedals together and a pedalboard power supply to give them juice. If you’re serious about your tone and want your pedals to sound their best, an isolated power supply will ensure lower noise and a cleaner sound overall.

How do you set up a pedal board?

First, make sure all your pedals are securely attached to the pedal board. Velcro and cable ties are usually provided with a brand new pedal board so you can start putting it together straight away. It’s also worth having a think about the signal chain and how your pedals will interact with each other depending on the order they’re in. Next, you’ll need to connect them all together with patch cables. Finally, you’ll need a power supply, ideally an isolated brick that supplies power to your pedals individually. Many pedal boards come with a mounting bracket that makes incorporating a power supply more straightforward.

What is a pedal board for?

A pedal board is a solid surface that allows you to arrange your array of effects pedals and keep them all connected. It’s an essential piece of equipment to have if effects pedals are a fundamental part of your sound and you regularly gig or rehearse.

Why are pedal boards expensive?

Whilst pedal board can seem like a large outlay, it’ll likely be something you only purchase once. They’re incredibly rugged and usually made from solid metal so they can take on the rigours of regular use with ease. Smaller pedal boards are more affordable and portable so you don’t need to go for the biggest one available if you’re only using a few stompboxes. Companies like Pedaltrain offer their boards with either a soft case or hard case so you can opt for the soft case version if you’re on a budget and aren’t taking your board on tour.

What’s the best order for my pedals?

There are no hard rules when it comes to setting the signal chain of your pedals. Tuners are traditionally at the beginning to get the cleanest signal and the most accurate tuning. A tuner can also go right at the end of your rig to act like a kill switch, though this is less common because you need to make sure pedals that affect pitch like chorus are switched off whilst tuning. Gain pedals such as overdrive, distortion and fuzz tend to follow the tuner. Modulation pedals can go before or after dirt pedals depending on how you want them to sound. Mod pedals are more subtle before dirt pedals and more pronounced after them. Delay and reverb pedals are often right at the end of the chain. Although a distorted reverb or delay can sound cool, it can become chaotic and noisy very easily.
