The redesigned boards use only one folded cold-rolled aluminum sheet for the board frame.


Markneukirchen, Germany (March 22, 2018) -- 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 pedalboards 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.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
