I'm a bassist in constant move between gigs, home and rehearsals. I used to have the pedal train mini but found that as my interest in effects grew so did the number of pedals, and the pedal train didn't quite cut it. The soft case wore out pretty quick and it was uncomfortable to connect disconnect take out of the bag and back in. Especially when my way pedal had to be stored separately.
So after looking into better pedal boards I came across this Diago Gigman, looked ok, a bit pricey, but with great reviews.
The day I got it, I'm being serious I did not imagine it would look this great! Since I've been carrying it I'm only getting compliments on it. All my pedals fit nicely as I have space for even one more. Padding is excellent protection and my pedals don't move an inch while being carried. Just take lid off connect power and play. super efficient. only con is its quite heavy. But if you're used to carrying a bass in a hard case it's no big deal. Great board definitely recommended!

This is my first pedalboard case. I think it's good, but not great. The things it has going for it have been pointed out by other reviewers - it is fairly lightweight, extremely sturdy, good size to fit a handful of pedals, the hardware is smooth to operate and feels sturdy. I have great confidence that this thing will hold up well to gigging. However, I had enough disappointments with this case before it's even gotten to be used out that I wish I had chosen another one. For starters, the latches are chopping up my shoe soles, and I have to perform a "twinkle-toe" maneuver to hit my pedal switches. It requires some concentration and dexterity that I just don't want to do while playing, so much that I am going to re-mount the latches on the side of the case. Second up, the lip on the bottom edge that faces you is just tall enough to be inconvenient. My pedals clear it, but I'd prefer not resting the arch of my foot on it when getting ready to tap a pedal, it just feels awkward. The last annoyance is that my pedals slid around and the velcro came off the bottom of a few pedals while this was stored upright in a closet in my apartment after just one week. The velcro on my pedals actually slid around on the pedal itself and some just fell off completely. I thought I was reasonable about putting the velcro on too - I cleaned the pedal surfaces with rubbing alcohol and cotton to get it squeaky clean and let it air dry before putting the velcro on, and they aren't even heavy pedals (Tech 21 overdrive boost, boss TU-3, and voodoo labs iso 5 slid the worst, but my ditto x2 stayed in place). Maybe it's just the finish on the pedals, but I'm not about to sand any of them down just to get the velcro to stick. Regardless, I have to figure out a place to store this flat, so that I don't have to re-lay-out my pedalboard every so often (which is the reason I bought a case to begin with!). Overall it's a good piece of gear that would be great with a few practical modifications.

Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

Love it. It's a beautiful board and it does what it's supposed to do and really well.
It's simple and the latches and everything are high quality.
this thing is built like a tank and you can immediately tell it's made of high quality materials.
I wish it came with a power supply but ah well. I bought the diago power supply along with the board and I love it!! Its small and fits off to the side yet powers all my pedals without any problems. Considering this thing gets tossed around a lot and still looks new 9 months later I say it's worth every penny.

Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

Solid build, simple design, large enough for many pedals + power supply (like voodoo lab pedal power), and not too heavy. Excellent!
straightforward design.
Very high quality. Built to last, and looks good as well.
Well worth the money.

A solid, well-made pedal board at a great price

By Junebug

from Portland, OR

Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

This thing fits tight like a clam shell. The profile of it is slim, so it's easy to pack into the truck to take to shows. Because the slides are so sturdy, it's easy to prop up on your mic stand if you want to add a little elevation to your board, or save a little floor space. This is one of those great buys I was really happy I came across.
Great construction, sturdily-built, nice chrome corners, strong and simple hinges and latches. It doesn't come with an on-board power supply.
I'm buying my second Diago pedal board, so that now I will have them for both my guitar and bass rigs. I'd purchased a cheap pedal board before for my bass, and now the thing is falling apart. I had no question in my mind which board I would buy to replace it. The Diago boards are solid wood construction--there's no twist to them, they don't warp or dent like metal ones. The thing opens and closes like a dream, every time, for every show. The hinges are simple, sturdy and easy to line up, even in a busy gigging situation, where it's dark and everyone's trying to get off-stage quickly. The latches are simple and sturdy. The minute the case is closed I never worry about the safety of my pedals. The felt and foam components stand up well to repeated velcro-ing, as I change pedal configurations.
I don't anticipate having to replace this board, ever. Unless I back over it with the truck.

Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

Nice piece of win for those who don't use a lot of pedals. it fits 10 of my pedals including a wah, tc nova repeater, and big roger mayer fuzz pedal. i wouldn't recommend if you use a fx loop and straight into the amp at the same time though because the pedals fit in tightly. and i love that its completely flat and covered in velcro, which i prefer the feel of a flat board, even though it gets messy.

    Durable construction and thick nylon fabric cover. Well made and installed corner protectors. Protects the pedals well. Comes with plenty of Velcro tape. Fits the Mustang IV pedals perfectly. MS2, MS4 and EXP-1 Expression pedals all fit with room to expand. The most solid and easy to use separation hinge I have seen. Comes shipped in double cardboard boxes for safer shipment to your home. Expensive but worth the price for the durability and good looks.

      Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

      The Pedaltrain rigs are nice, but I wanted something different with more protection; take the top off, plug in and play. The Diago is extremely well built. Not much heavier given it's wood, but no more so than my Tele in its case. Covering is outstanding, hardware is top-notch. The entire board is covered in Velcro, so moving things around is a snap in any configuration I wish. Only "downside" is not being able to hide the power cables, but zip ties are my friend. Not a big deal. Great protection, easy setup. I love it.

      Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

      I have been playing guitar since 1979. I have always used a Boss BCB-3 and a Cry Baby Wah in front, and I still use that set-up for practice at home. This Diago "Gig Man" is just like a well made briefcase. The depth is perfect as your pedals are about half way down in the board without any trouble turning them on/off. Diago makes an AC power supply for their pedalboards, however I use a "One Spot". I have owned this pedalboard for at least 4-5 years. I attach my effect pedals with "Stage Trix" Velcro products. If you need to cram a lot of pedals onto this board, purchasing (2) right angle guitar cable adapters will allow you to use the most space as the straight end cables will not fit the input/output of your pedals because they are situated too low. Easy fix. What I truly love about the Diago "Gig Man" is the build quality is second to none and closing the pedalboard up with the lid on (2) quality "C" style hinges and fastening it shut with (2) latches just like a guitar case make this unit super easy to transport and it saves tons of time to set up and break down. 5 Stars highly recommended.

      Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

      Since there isn't a single powered pedal board on the planet that will power ALL of my pedals, I opted for a non-powered unit and added a Voodoo Labs power supply. I also found out that there isn't a single power supply on the planet that will power all of my pedals... So when all was said and done I ended up with this pedal board and all pedals are powered off a small power strip that I used Velcro to position/hold in place. I have some heavy pedals ( Boss RC-30, Morpheus polyphonic drop tune..etc) and I can turn the board upside down without any pedals moving at all.. they are very secure. There is room for all my pedals, a 6 outlet power strip, and I leave a 25' instrument cable coiled inside it ( so all I have to do at a gig is run the cable to the PA and I'm completely set up.

      I have a Audio-Technica System 10 wireless stompbox, Boss TU-3 tuner, Boss RC-30 looper, Boss FS-5U extension pedal, and a Morpheus drop tune pedal, the power strip, and the 25 foot instrument cable inside the board and it all fits... (that's about the equivalent of seven single sized pedals, plus power strip)

      The exterior has a really nice textured finish to it and good corner protection. The only fit and finish complaint I have is that the clips for the pedal latch had to be closed with pliers to keep them from falling off and one of the latches has a lose fitting bracket... first problem fixed, second problem I can deal with as long as it doesn't fall off down the road.. and even then, I can fix it..

      overall, a good quality product ..

        After shopping around, I decided to go with the Diago for a few reasons. I like to keep things minimal when it comes to my pedal setup and this great looking board with a study and sleek design seemed to stand out from the Pedaltrain and other similar style boards. It has a velco base and comes with a small package of velco tape as an unexpected added bonus. Perfect for the gigging musician that needs a "no nonsense" board at a good price.

          The depth of the pedalboard interferes with the input and output cables. If yoire going fit a full board in there you need to modify it. raise the lower section so you input output clear the lip of the case and replace the foam on the lid of the case with a thinner foam to still for he pedals.. also buy better velcro tape because the glue is weak on whay they provide and the pedals come off after short periods of upright storage. other then that the case is really good quality and looks awesome. id still recommend this board if you want to mod it. if not go with pedaltrain.

              Comments about Diago PB02 Gigman Pedal Board:

              This is a nice pedal board, well made. I think it is a bit over priced, considering there is no power supply. It's just a case. The velcro floor of the board is solidly attached; doesn't seem easy to damage it when un-sticking pedals. The foam rubber on the lid holds pedals really well. (Almost good enough without the velcro.)As long as a flat pedal board, of it's size, without a power supply works for you, I would recommend it. The only thing I would change in it's design is the way the clasp sticks up on the front edge of the bottom, when the lid is removed. It seems likely that the protruding catch might get bent, or catch on the bottom of my shoe. I'll have to work around it. I really like having my pedals organized, and now setting up will be a lot easier. All in all, I'm very pleased with my new pedal board.
