When deciding on a pedalboard, there's a bunch of cheap crap, a bunch of pseudo-custom and uber-expensive options, and then there's Pedaltrain. High quality aluminum construction, at a somewhat reasonable price, with the choice of a soft semi-padded bag or a rugged tour case. (Personally, I opted for the tour case. Considering my pedalboard contents are worth WAY more than any bass or amp I own, it seemed silly to cheap out on the case.)
The new Classic line has an open front (as opposed to those teeny holes), and well-ventilated ribs, with plenty of room for 2 rows of pedals. The included velcro is usable, and setup is easy even for the novice. The one complaint I would have is that there is no "built-in" accommodation for the power supply. Pre-drilled holes under the pedalboard that would accommodate at least the most common power supply form-factors seems simple enough. But that is a minor quibble. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with the Pedaltrain Classic 2, and if (when) I buy a second pedalboard, it will almost certainly be another Classic 2!
This is one of those purchases that might seem really, really boring and OTT but so totally worth it every time you set up to play. The case is one of the best parts about it as it has a shoulder strap and is incredibly strong even with the whole board maxed out with pedals. I love that you can run all the cables under neath the gaps but the guys at PedalTrain had the brains to include all the velcro you could need for the bottom of pedals and the top of the board.
