Furman SPB-8 Pedal Board isn't bad overall.. I have had a similar problem with the zipper busting on the bag.. I have also had to change the guitar input jack and left/mono out jack.. as with the dc 9 volt jacks, i have replaced the second and third top jack along with the bottom left corner with higher quality jacks that lock to the board.. The input jacks for the guitar are made of cheap plastic in which the threads will want to strip overtime as you hand tighten them.. the 9 volt jacks are made cheaply, as to where, if there is slight tension on the jack with the chord between pedal and board ,the metel inside of the jack which completes the connections will bend slightly causing that pedal to lose power and think you have a bad chord connection which has happenned live on stage on a few occasions. I do not recommend this for the active on stage rock band with a crazy singer.. I believe higher quality parts should have been used for the price.. The Layout is great although i wish there were a power on lighted switch.. Word to the manufactuers, quality over quantity.. Quality will bring the customers back. Unfortunately I remain hesitant over purchasing any future furman products. They're batting 2 out of 3 for me. I believe they can do better.

I ordered this board from MF about 5 years ago to replace my SKB-6 (the original mass produced pedalboard). Initially, I loved it...more space, more power options, much sturdier, etc...Then, occasionally at gigs, I'd get this god awful hum that simply wouldn't go away, until I plugged my amp into one of the 120AC outlets on the pedalboard. I thought, at the time, "bad wiring at venue, oh well..."After a couple gigs that went this way, I blew my power tubes on the amp...figured, "oh well, factory stock tubes..."Then, after only about a year, it happened again. I thought to myself, "that's weird."So, I started looking into it. Everything had the sneaky look of improper grounding, thought to myself, "in a Furman?!"Long story short, opened up the insulation in the cord and realized that the ground plug was there only for show. So, I replaced that plug, and grounded it properly. Intermittently, I get a buzz, and my loopstation starts acting squirrelly, so every six months or so, I check the connection on the ground prong of the plug. That takes care of it...

This thing is a piece!

By P'oed

from Littleton, CO

I have had nothing but problems. I even sent it back to Furman. They sent it back in non working condition! Wait for the new one from Furman if you have to buy Furman and don't buy this unreliable hunk O' junk! Better yet consider a SKB PS-45. More money, but you get what you pay for!

Not good enough

By Fanoftheliving-61yJU

from Morristown nj

First the positive. It is well made and can house everything very well, a little better then the PSB25. But, again, as with all of these devices that patch bay isuseless - very noisy. I like the quiet power supply, but the batch bay is something that they need to work on, no good. I would not recommend this for the money.

a solution that works

By Negril

from Maryland

See all my reviews

I purchased one 6 years ago, and it immediately became part of my stage rig. Approximately 40 gigs per year, plus rehearsals and studio work. Never a failure, hum, hiss or issue. I carry and set up my own gear (I know, no roadies) and the soft case hasn't been an issue. When I fly, I use a Boss ME-50 so my beloved stomp boxes stay at home. The zipper on the soft case wore out 1st, but a trip to the dry cleaners solved that: the seamstress who does their alterations replaced the entire zipper for $10. I'm about to buy a new one, and leave my original one set up in my home. It's been an extremely reliable piece of gear, and has housed my pedals securely. No complaints at all. My gear:PRS Custom 24 or Taylor T-5Mesa Lonestar (100w head / 4x10" cab)Keeley Comp and modded BD-2,Fulltone Choral flanger,AC Booster, andvarious delay pedals all run via my Furman powered pedal board

Spendy, but very cool

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Plenty of room and power for lots of pedals. I have small pedals (mostly Boss) and the extra space on the board is enough to carry nearly all my band's cables and microphones. It cost me plenty of cash, but it was one of the best gear investments I've ever made. The built-in power conditioner is excellent. Highly recommended.

No other answer...

By Leon-y3GfG

This is simply the best and most reliable powered pedal board out there. I have always had nothing but success with Furman's products. I loaded mine with a Digitech Bass Whammy, a Digitech Bass Envelope Filter, an EBS Bass Wah-One, a Moog Ring Modulator and STILL had room for it's expression pedal. Love it. It's quiet, light-weight, and makes your guitarist with all his unorganized pedals extremely jealous. If you got pedals, get this!

DC power supply fried with the first 20 hours.

By Vince-MtP_e

from Albany, NY

See all my reviews

I took a chance on this "bag board". I wasn't so keen on the bag and cheesy zipper, I gave it a shot anyway. Full of pedals, it's rather cumbersome to get all four corners out of the bag case. It's a LOT easier to use a covered pedalboard that you position on the floor and simply remove the top cover. I didn't have problems with noise because I read reviews where people warn about using a separate power supply (such as the Hot Spot) for powering the loop-based effects. The problem for me was the transformer got so hot it almost burnt my hand when I touched it after I realized half my effects weren't being powered. The 1/8" DC outputs totally fried. I had this board for about 2 weeks and used it for less than 20 hours. I had it turned on for 4 hours before it toasted. The DC power section was only powering a Peterson stomp tuner, Steve Vai wah, and X2 wireless receiver (which is also battery powered and uses only 80mA). I couldn't risk trying a replacement and having it die on me at a gig, so I went with the SPB-8C,

perfect pedal board

By somanyamps

It is so much easier to transport your pedals, and keep the dials on the right settings, by using a pedal board like this. The spb-8 has so many sends and returns, and power sources, you can make anything work with it.

Quality issues kill otherwise decent board

By AustinWoodwrkr

from Austin

I thought the power conditioner features of the Furman board for the price would make this a great deal, but the 9v power supply was defective and wouldn't power my pedals. Unfortunately I didn't test the board before tearing apart my chain to move it over to the board so a lot of wasted effort. I didn't mind the boards weight, but I agree that the bag zipper seems lightweight for the task. I'm going to go with either and SKB or a Gator board instead.

I bought this board 6 months ago. It holds enough effects and has good clean power supply. The carring case is very nice also I'm very happy I bought it.
