Orange, CA(May 26, 2011) -- SKB Corporation's latest innovation is the 1SKB-FN-8 FootNote – the very first amplified pedalboard. Featuring a built-in 5W combo amp designed by legendary amp designer Gary Sunda and a 6" Eminence speaker, the 1SKB-FN-8 FootNote is like no other pedalboard on the market.

The injection molded pedalboard features a 9” x 12” mounting surface which is sloped for easier access to the rear pedals. The 1SKB-FN-8 FootNote can power up to eight 9VDC battery powered pedals with the supplied power cables. Additionally, the FootNote features a 1/8” AUX/MP3 stereo line input for external audio playback and incorporates the same cable tester found on the 1SKB-PS-55 StageFive Professional pedalboard. Included is a Headphone Output for monitoring or silent practice and a Line Out that is ideal for live or recording use. The internal speaker on/off switch is independent of the Line Out and Headphone Output modes for maximum flexibility. One of the most unique features is the Speaker Out that allows the FootNote to drive an external 4 ohm speaker load. The FootNote can run on AC with the supplied thermal protected power supply or DC power using 6 D-Cell batteries (batteries not included).

The pedalboard has a street price of $179.99 and will be available in mid-August, 2011. For those that want a carry case for the 1SKB-FN-8 FootNote pedalboard, a rolling soft case will be available as an accessory.
