Pedal Train Pedal Board with Evidence Audio SIS Plugs and Monorail
I thought we should post a few of the things we regularly get through the shop. We sell Pedal Train Boards and stock the Nano+, Metro2, Classic 2, Nova 24 and have access to everything, usually within a few days.
I like to try and keep pedal boards as simple as possible from the setup side. I have also had masses of pedals come in on boards with broken sockets or intermittent faults. This is almost always caused by repeatedly plugging and unplugging cables.
The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 has an IEC output which can be used to power pedals with a mains in. You cannot use it to power your amplifier. The Quattro just has an external plug with a transformer inside the pedal. I used an IEC connector to replace the plug which can remain permanently connected to the power supply. I also retained the 5ft of wire in case the customer wanted to revert to original at some stage in the future.
Another advantage of the Voodoo Labs products over the Carl Martin Pro Power is they are easily mountable underneath the Pedal Train boards with abracket kit.
The smaller Pedal Train Boards, which don't have a riser at the back, will not be able to take power supplies underneath.
These are solderless plugs designed with one of the highest grade copper cores in the industry. In terms of signal strength there really is nothing better in my opinion. The build quality is superb and the plug heads are among the smallest available.
I make them just using a sharp craft knife for stripping back the cable. Once you have made a few it doesn't really take very long.
If you would like to know more about the SIS and Monorail leads it is worth having a read of our review here..
If you are absolutely terrible at 'hands on' there is another good option. It won't save you very much money but their cables are incredibly easy to make with just a push in coax. Have a look at the Planet Waves GP-KIT-10.
Pedal Board Owner
As a Guitar Tutor, Higher Education Lecturer & Session Musician, Simon Westaway spends a huge part of his week surrounded by music. This often involves the need to use his pedal board at various rehearsals, studio sessions or gigs. I wanted him to have an easier time on arrival. Instead of building and powering the proverbial 'train set' of pedals each time, he could just plug in one power lead, a few cables and get on with it.
This may only save a few minutes but when that is either rushing at the start of a gig or when packing away at 1am, simplicity matters.
