RockBoard Releases Pedalboard Range for 2018

RockBoard Releases Pedalboard Range for 2018

The innovative slot-based design works equally well with standard mounting solutions as with the new RockBoard Quick Mount pedal mounting plates.

Markneukirchen, Germany (December 13, 2017) -- At the NAMM Show, January 2018, in Anaheim, California we will present a complete new RockBoard pedalboard range including accessories. The new 2018 RockBoard pedalboard series has been completely re-designed. Setting out to create a pedalboard that is lightweight, rigid and rugged, allowing for the use of a multitude of pedals as well as power supply mounting solutions unique to this ingenious aluminum construction. Based on only one folded, cold-rolled aluminum sheet for the board frame, this design needs no welded seams. This makes the board surface completely plain and gives you more pedalboard space for your money. U-shaped vertical support braces offer additional stability without adding too much weight.

The new RockBoard pedalbords will neither bend nor wiggle. The innovative slot-based design works equally well with standard mounting solutions as with the new RockBoard Quick Mount pedal mounting plates (sold separately). The slots also let you easily hide cables underneath the surface for a need and tidy setup. Additionally, any power supply can either be mounted underneath the board surface, or using the optional RockBoard The Tray universal power supply mounting solution. All RockBoard 2018 Series models (except Duo 2.1) are compatible with the RockBoard Module patch bays. With seven sizes ranging from 46 cm (18 1/8") to 102 cm (40 3/16") in width we are sure you will find the perfect board for your needs. All sizes are available with either gig bag or flight case.

The following RockBoard models and optional accessories will be available from January 2018 onwards:

  • RockBoard DUO 2.1
  • RockBoard TRES 3.1
  • RockBoard QUAD 4.1
  • RockBoard QUAD 4.2
