Novo means "a new beginning" in Latin, and Pedaltrain's Novo Series five-rail pedalboards are exactly that, a fresh redesign of their market-leading pedalboard design. Thanks to Pedaltrain's modified rail system and open front design, mounting pedals and power supplies is easier than ever. Even the smallest pedals make an incredibly strong bond with this rail system. Novo 18's five-rail design is perfect for players who use true-bypass switchers or need an extra rail to accommodate a variety of pedal configurations. And, as always, Novo 18 is made with Pedaltrain's signature featherweight aircraft-grade aluminum.
This board was a much needed upgrade from my old pedalboard, which was a cutting board with godlyke power grip that fit in an old typewrite case. Has all the space i need, plus PLENTY.
This is a great board that offers a couple of big advantages: first, it allows you to keep your cables tidy, a problem I've always had in the past with more traditional pedal boards. Second, the slanted angle is perfect for those of us who need to be able to easily reach that back row of pedals without having to do the delicate tip-toe dance. Third, its super sturdy aluminum construction allows you to mount a power source under the board, thus saving valuable space. Fourth, it's pretty dang roomy, and I've found I have more room than I even need--a good quality in a board since so many of us gear geeks are constantly expanding our arsenal. The price may seem a bit steep at first, but as soon as I got my board set up I knew it was worth it.
I used to work with a home made wood pedalboard I made for myself when I had pretty much half the pedal I own now, so it was about time I made an upgrade to this simple tool. I found the Novo 24 to be affordable and the perfect size to build up a new pedalboard that could have everything I need on it, plus trying to plan different pedalboard single chains in Pedaltrain's website let me be sure I could easily add some pedal I am looking to buy soon. If you ever need to add or change, it has great space, if you have tons of pedals it is easily a nice size for you to find a perfect combination without having to buy a huge pedalboard. Plus the soft case is more than enough for gigs in town or roadtrips.
