These features will streamline your rig. The days of the chinese fire drill during setup and tear down are over! Creativity peaks with custom pedalboards that have all the options you need to best serve your musical purpose. We offer many I/O options to accommodate the needs of all levels of music makers. These I/O options are proven to increase productivity, playability and are simply 1000% useful.
Audio and Media
The most common I/O selections are AC power ports and instrument connectors(1/4″). We accommodate for stereo in’s, out’s, DI connections, pre-amp hookups, multiple amp outs and any other signal routing needs. Audio/media connections such as XLR, 1/4″ Instrument, USB, MIDI, Firewire, Ethernet, SpeakerCON and many others can be ported into your board. These ports are punched into the board in the early stages of the build; we counter-sink these ports, so it’s important to make your I/O choices prior to placing your order. We’ll answer any questions you have regarding placement, additional uses or possible configuration questions that may arise.
NOTE***Our I/O options come with optional miniature name badges to easily identify which connector is which. Not only are these really frickan cool, but eliminates any guess work from having multiple, similar I/O inputs/outputs.
We offer several types of flush mounted AC connections. The most popular is a male IEC connector pictured here. These are commonly used for connecting wall power to the side of the board, then a pigtail would connect to a pedal powering device on the under side of the board.
***We can accommodate for international power requirements***
Another popular option is a locking L5-15 NEMA connection. By choosing this option, we will send you the necessary power cable that connects to this style connector.
Regardless of which power connection you choose, we will install an IEC pigtail that runs to the bottom side of the board to feed thirsty power supplies. This connection type is the most common type of power connector used today. If you require a different type of pigtail, we can accommodate for little or no additional fee.
****THE POWER CONNECTION ON OUR BOARDS ARE NOT MEANT TO POWER ANYTHING EXCEPT PEDAL POWERING DEVICES, DO NOT CONNECT ANY HIGH DRAW DEVICES LIKE AMPLIFIERS,PA SYSTEMS OR THE LIKE TO THIS PORT, SERIOUS INJURY AND/OR DEATH COULD OCCUR. THIS ALSO VOIDS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES THROUGH WEST COAST PEDAL BOARD, AND/OR ANY 3RD PARTY COMPANIES*****
When you select ANY AC power port option, included is (1) one 18 gauge 6′ power cable. It has an standard wall outlet plug on one side, then the other end accommodates for whatever AC input you chose to have on the board. We have a great selection of various length power cords as well.
