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.
