Fender’s first foray into the ‘board market is a pretty sleek-looking unit, which features a precision-machined, anodized aluminum chassis and a universal mounting bracket that promises to accommodate all popular pedalboard power supplies.
As pedalboards go, it’s pretty straightforward, though has the added bonus of a cable management system made up of rear-facing metal loops built into the ‘board’s undercarriage.
It aims to provide an effective solution to any unruly cable-related problems you may have, and kindly arrives with an assortment of zip ties and cable clips for extra efficiency. Hook-and-loop mounting tape is also included with the unit.
Fender’s Professional Pedal Board is available in three sizes – small, medium and large – which aim to accommodate smaller travel-minded setups and larger gigging rigs. The small and medium measure in at 18” and 24” wide, respectively, while the large boasts a width of 32”.
Perhaps just as exciting as the ‘board itself, though, is the none-more-Fender tweed hardcase that can be purchased separately to house your pedals.
Available in a trio of coinciding sizes, the tweed case is effectively a downsized guitar case, featuring plush “red poodle” interior lining and securing straps that let you access a “Play-In” option.
Price-wise, the ‘boards weigh in at $169, $219 and $269, respectively, depending on the size you opt for, while the relevant cases can be bought for $199, $249 and $299.
Each pedalboard arrives with a soft carry case, so the hardcase is extra. But, boy, is it a purdy extra.
