PEDALBOARD DECK & CABLE SLATS

Super Loop Deck Top

Our Super Loop pedal board deck top material is unlike most other “velcro” style products. Ours doesn’t loose grip, frizz or fray, it holds pedals super tight and is included on all Standard Line West Coast Pedalboards.  Its a low profile material that not only looks killer, but works great.  It’s the most popular way to secure pedals as it accepts the hook side of velcro found on most pedals.

Dual Lock Deck Top

The Dual Lock Deck is a clean black plastic top that looks clean and works specifically with Dual Lock and similar type fasteners.  Typically, the same adhesive backed material will be used on the pedalboard deck top and the back side of the pedals.

Cable Access Slats

Our angled boards include a standard format and pre-configured array of access slats for each size board we make.  These slats make it simple to route power and patch cables neatly to their chosen locations; extremely handy when moving, replacing pedals or adding new gear to the board.

Cable Access Slats – Custom

Does your installation require specifically placed cable access slats, holes, or cutouts? We can help! The process is simple and super technical.  Grab a piece of construction paper cut to the exact size as your board deck, then mark your slats/hole locations.  Slats are 3/4” wide, and should be no longer then half the size of the pedalboard deck.  All holes will be drilled at 7/8”.

***Tolex boards, leave .5″ or space around the entire border. Hardwood boards, leave .75″ on the player and audience sides***

TOLEX / TWEED / MULTI~TONE

Tolex and Tweed

Our Custom Shop has a large selection of tolex choices and various styles of tweed frame and case coverings. These materials are widely used in the finishing of amp heads, cabs, combo units, and… pedal boards!

Multi-Tone

2 & 3 Tone possibilities are possible with our huge selection of textiles. This is where we can really create with the endless design possibilities, creating a truly Custom & personalized rig.

  • Cording will be required to separate tolex or tweed color changes. The cording comes in White, Black, Silver or Gold. Cording creates a smooth transition between materials and adds a layer of custom to each pedalboard build.
  • We can arrange materials and create a multi-tone scheme that show striking and unique combinations of tweed and tolex materials. There are also options for using cording channels to separate a mono color of tolex or tweed for a very simple & clean breakup of a single color.

CORDING & PIPING

Cording, or piping is thin vinyl, we use it for most multi-tone or segmented boards and case work. Its a clean transition method used to join 2 different or identical materials together.  Also very classy used on solid color scheme projects for accents and pin-striping.  It comes in black, white, silver or gold.

HARD, SOFT & EXOTIC WOOD BOARDS

Many types of wood species can be used for the pedal board frame.  Most timbers are hand selected based on character and figuring, one at a time!

AUDIO & POWER

Side ports streamline your rig, simplify setup and teardown and minimize wear and tear of pedals.  We offer every option available to accommodate the needs of all levels and types of music creators.

AUDIO

The most common Input / Output selections are AC power ports and 1/4″ instrument connections.  Any type of signal route and interface are easily possible using side mount jack ports.  Connections such as XLR, 1/4″ Instrument, USB, MIDI and Ethernet can be installed to your board.

POWER

The most popular AC inputs are the 5-15 IEC connector and male Edison flanged inlet.  The IEC is most popular because it accepts a computer style power cable, where the Edison inlet requires an extension cord type.

Regardless of  power connection type you choose, we install the proper pigtail that plugs into your power supply.

INDICATOR LAMPS

FENDER STYLE INDICATOR LAPMS [Indy Lamps]

Indicator lamps are not only a stylish addition, but also provides a classic visual signaling power is running to the board and all the gear connected to it. Choose your favorite color lens while operating at either 110/120V or 210/250V.  The harness will work at both voltages, but the bulb is different for each voltage application.

PEDAL POWER DEVICES

Pedal Power Supplies

Quality power supplies are an important element in a smooth running pedalboard; isolated, filtered and regulated power help the pedals perform to their engineered level. All power supply sales include installation when purchased with a board.

If you are uncertain of which power supply you need, please call in with, or email us your list of pedals you have, or plan to have and we’ll tell ya what will work.

We sell and recommend Voodoo Lab and Strymon, primarily for reliability, true power output isolation and customer service/warranty in the rare case of need of support.

All of our angled boards(including the Angled Little Rock) have plenty of access and space to mount pedal powering devices and other gear to the bottom of the board. Our Flat Series are also compatible, simply mount the power supply anywhere on the top deck surface.

Our logo plates are customizable as well. Add your name, nickname, a phrase, band name and/or logo.  These come in Silver or Gold and Black.  By default, all West Coast gear comes with Silver and Black badging.  We offer indicator badges that help identify multiple Input/Output ports on the board sides.
