    I had to build a new pedalboard today. I went to Walmart, got my usual cuttingboard, went over to hardware and got my usual handles, then wondered if there were any tubs that would work to keep the dog hair and cockatiel crums off my pedals. They sure did and it fits like a glove...

    Ty, its definitely a easy on the wallet and I don't gig so I don't need anything heavy duty. Thought I would pass it along for us bedroom players :D...

    Never thought of it for a pedal board, but I do have 2 or 3 of those under a bed full of pedals.

    I love this. I must admit that I have never used a "board"; I just daisy-chain any or all pedals as needed, like some old clueless geezer. Good inspiration to me. Something to investigate & get together. Thanks!

    And can double as a weatherproof set-up for outdoor gigs! As a Vermonter, I applaud your sense of practicality and frugality

    Why is the dog eating cockatiels in your music room?

    Do you burp the lid when you close it up? It keeps you batteries fresh.

    yeah, everything is kind of sitting next to the bird cage and he likes throwing his food everywhere. My guitar room will be getting turned into a nursery soon so I am in the process of moving my crap. We have an old house and not many of our outlets are wired correctly, it just so happens the cockatiel is next to one. I would move him but he would get pissed because he likes watching TV. :lol:

    Great idea. Do you have a shot of your pedalboard out of the container?

    found a laptop bag for $10, cut a thin piece of wood for the bottom and velcro'd the pedals in. works great!
