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

from San Francisco, CA

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.

Really Good

By Wayne-3wWAF

from St. Louis, MO

See all my reviews

Sure, we all want a hard-case, but this board pretty much proves that you don't absolutely NEED one. Holds up really well. Gets your stuff there in one piece (after you velcro it, of course) and keeps it powered. The extra outlets are a GREAT bonus. I run eight pedals off this board (including one oversized one) and I could probably fit another one if I needed it. Excellent value, and it's a must if you're an effect-junkie.

Works Well

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I must say, this board never leaves my studio. So, I can't really talk about the soft shell case or how the unit handles the bumps and grinds of touring.However, for my studio use, this unit works GREAT! I love it. No problems. I run a large bank of pedals as well as two full racks through it.

Works for me

By DW-yfj8f

from St.petersburg, FL

Overall I like this board. I don't use the patch bay because it is too noisy. I think that may be caused by the power supply. The board is tough as hell and the velcro is as strong as you would ever need. The zipper did break on the bag but I can get that fixed. Also with time the screws on the back of the board that hold the power supply on may come lose and fall out. Try and check that they're tight everyonce in a while. I've been using it for three years and it's like an old friend to me.

Shweeeeet

By Quilemaul

from Las Vegas, NV

I am completely satisfied with this thing! After doing my research, I finally decided on Furman because my experience with their power conditioners. Man, what a treat this thing was to set up. Maybe it's just me (My pedal chain is PERFECTLY suited to this thing) but I don't get any noise whatsoever using the patch bay or included power supplies. Basic setup is as follows (An S indicates a stereo chain) : Gtr to input of patch bay, out to MXR KFK-1 EQ-->Rocktron Big Crush Comp-->MXR DD-11-->Digitech RP350-S->patch bay "From Pedals" connectors then I use the patchbay's stereo effects send and returns to go to a Line 6 FM4. Finally, from the unbalanced outs of the patch bay I go to an Ebtech HE-2-XLR Hum Eliminator. I think it's that plus the noise gate settings on my RP350 that may be clearing out all the noise, but just know, any noise any of the other reviewers are complaining about can be fixed if you put the time and effort into nailing it down and tweaking your tone

First the patch bay crapped out, followed by the DC 9V outlets. Velcro does not hold... now I'm stuck with a hunk of velcro barely holding together pedals powered by 9v batteries and patched together.

Outstanding!

By Rickytoons

This board has got it all. I have been looking for a board like this for a while now, and this is by far the best I've seen. I even made one myself once, and the noise problems I had with that. Furman is tops in the power conditioning biz, and it shows in this board. Furman also gives you a little more than you expect from their gear. I was very impressed by the array of power cords they supply. They thought of every configuration. Typical. The board is very solid and the storage bag is top notch. It has straps to hold down the board during moves and zippered pouches for cables, etc. If you're looking for a great way to move your gear from gig to gig, it doesn't get much easier, or better. Thanks Furman, again.

Noise problems

By SDplayer

from San Diego

I was really excited when I got this pedal board. I've had it about a year now. When I first got it it was very quite. But, now it makes noise when I kick in my distortion. I've checked it out and is definitly coming from the pedal board.

lame

By teleboy4evr

from Yucca Valley, CA

Definately not worth the money.. I bought this 3 years ago, and though it is still intact, it is NOT in good condition. The velcro does not stay on the board, and don't use the loop-through for the input, it causes a ground loop to make noise through your amp. The soft case is the worst, the zipper broke and it doesn't protect the pedals. The hardshell SKB is WAY better

More than I expected

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I was a little hesitant to buy this pedal board because of all the negative reviews that I read. But when I received it, it was 100% more than I expected. It is a decent size, I can fit a couple BIG pedals on there and I still have a lot more room. As far as the case goes, its not that bad. People keep knocking it off. If you don't take care of your stuff, its not gonna take care of you.Overall, this saves me a lot of trouble and does not create barely any extra noise that my pedals aren't.

Don't know what the complaints are about

By DarkKnight369

from Peoria, IL

See all my reviews

I only have had this for a few months, but it works great. I was tired of carrying all those pedals and tearing them apart just to re-assemble them later. This was the answer to my problems. It came with all the little power cords to get your setup running as well. I go through the patch bay with the Planet Waves solderless cable station, and everything sounds fantastic. My only complaint is I wish it had a hard case and they gave you more velcro. I like the hard case that the similar SKB has, however. The padded case means less weight and it has nice pockets to store cables, strings, and whatever else I need. If I tour the country and had this pedal board thrown around then I would see that being a problem. Otherwise great product.
