A pedal board is a great way to keep effects pedals organised and easily transportable. Commercial pedal boards vary in price, but it is common for musicians operating on a budget to build their own fully functional pedal boards out of common materials found at most department stores. Not all commercial pedal boards include a power source, but this feature can be added by attaching a cheap store-bought power strip.

  2. 2

    Cover the entire surface of the plywood with the soft or "looped" side of the Velcro tape.

    Turn the power strip so the bottom is facing up. Cover the bottom of the power strip with the coarse or "hooked" side of the Velcro tape.

  4. 4

    Select the pedals that will be used with the pedal board. Cover the bottom of each pedal with the coarse or "hooked" side of the Velcro tape.

    Plug each pedal into the power strip via its respective AC adaptor. Plug the power strip into a power supply to power the pedal board.
