    The guitar world's favorite pedalboard, improved!

    Often imitated, the original Furman SPB-8 was the first stereo pedal board on the market. Furman now offers its successor, the SPB-8C Powered Pedal Board. Featuring a hardshell case, more outlets, improved jacks, and a streamlined look, the SPB-8C improves on the innovative design that made the original pedal board so popular.

    Pedal Board
    The SPB-8C pedal board features heavy duty metal construction that will handle the most forceful stomps you can offer, as well as stand up to the rigors of the road. At the heart of the SPB-8C pedal board is a light yet rugged polycarbonate platform in combination with an extruded aluminum chassis and an ample 13.75" x 26.75" Velcro sheet. This durable construction ensures secure, non-slip performance of your effects boxes and pedals.

    The SPB-C's stereo patch bay contains eight 1/4" switching phone jacks featuring sturdy metal bushings, connected in two stereo loops. This allows a single guitar or instrument input to feed multiple mono and stereo effects boxes, send and return from remote effects, and feed up to two amplifiers simultaneously. From modest to highly complex patching demands, the SPB-8C allows nearly unlimited set-up flexibility.

    Powering your pedals, amps and other gear, the SPB-8C offers two levels of surge and short circuit protection, as well as Furman's standard level of RFI/EMI filtering. Furman's SPB-8C is quiet, powering DC pedals without hum, due to the high quality toroid transformer employed. Each DC output is rated at 120 mA, as well as being individually protected against shorts, guaranteeing that if one pedal goes out, the rest will continue to function. Further, these DC outputs are individually isolated, eliminating noisy ground loops. The SPB-8C also includes four AC outlets, spaced widely enough to accommodate bulky "wall wart" transformers.

    Hardshell Case
    The Furman SPB-8C features a durable polyethylene hardshell case. Built to cater to the demands of the working professional, the case is large enough to accommodate the pedal board and all attached effects, allowing the musician to keep all pedals and stompboxes patched and connected from gig to gig. A retractable handle and inline skate wheels allow for easy transport, while heavy-duty latches ensure the case will remain securely closed when not in use.

    *****Disregard my previous review if MF doesn't delete it,....the 5 stars threw me off, didn't notice it was a 10 point rating system.***** This thing is very solid, great unit. Pricey, but I'm glad I went for it. Very easy set up, and you avoid all the chaos of making your own junkyard pedalboard, ..........very neat, organized, a must have for me. Sturdy suitcase handle, telescoping handle, and latches. Wish it had some way to attach a padlock to be able to physically lock it, but that is about all. Good sized, big enough to fit plenty of pedals...maybe 8 or so, depending on how many double/triple size pedals you have, however, small enough to be manageable as well. Everything is top notch. The latches are about the only hint at a weak spot, held in with rivets, however, they are still heavy duty, and I am very good at nit-picking. I work in the communications industry, and I have seen many of these types of cases, and they are almost indestructible. Very glad I bought it, without a doubt....cost a good little mint, but with teh protection, ease of setup, features, it is all worth is. Fantastic unit. If Furman would add some way to padlock it and swap out the current heavy duty latches for some super-duper heavy duty latches that aren't riveted in, it would be absolutely perfect.

    FIRST ONE: wired up fine and sounded fine. However the fabric seemed loose on the board and of low quality. Then the pull out handle broke off in my hand! The first night! SECOND ONE: wired up fine and the fabric felt the way it should. But I've got a huge noise problem. Haven't been able to isolate it yet. I love the concept and it's bigger than it's SKB PS-45 competitor and better with the addition of the wheels and handle. However in the final analysis, it seems to fall short of "Road Worthy" in my opinion.Now here's the part where I tell you about my gear. A/B switch at the top (A - LR Baggs D.I. for my Tom Anderson Crowdster)/ (B - MXR Dyna comp - Volume - Fulldrive FD2 MOSFET - Dunlop 95Q - Line 6 MM4 - Boss RV5 - 3x Boss DD5 - Boss TU2 out to Mesa Lone Star) I play Les Pauls and a Jazzmaster. I haven't given up yet, still going to try to get this thing to work. I'd reccomend buying it, but be prepared to take it back.

    Furman SPB-8C

    By Jeffrey Tayama

    from Columbus, OH

    Great board. BIG and a Tank, but worth the money and also, for protecting the hundreds of dollars if not thousands of dollars in pedals.
    What a tank! This is a tank in that it's BIG, but it is built like a tank. It fits a lot of pedal on it. I have a volume pedal, wah, DL4, distortion, tremolo, noise suppression, tuner and could fit a couple more. a couple of my pedals are big. I've tried a couple other cheaper pedal boards and those do not compare to this. I've only heard good reviews for this board.
    The wheels help so much b/c the board isn't light in itself and when you add pedals, even heavier. The inputs are great; very quiet, due to Furmans reknowned power conditioning. There are several configurations for single amp or two amps or remote effects. Unfortunately, I had the bad luck of getting a defective one, so when I played a show last Friday, the output to the amp was making a huge buzzing noise. Probably a faulty solder. I'm getting a new one shipped though. Reason why I know it was the output is because I plugged directly into the pedals and the pedals directly out to the amp and no buzz. Other than that though, the thing is great. No tone loss (beside the buzzing),

    I've tried a couple other cheaper pedal boards and those do not compare to this. Also, from rave reviews, I bought it and am happy, other than the defective one I received. I'm sure the replacement will be fine.
    As well, it does have a big price tag to it, but if you figure buying something like a Pedaltrain with Voodoo power supply/conditioner, etc., it would add up close to what the Furman SPB-8C would be and this board comes with wheels and a hard shell case.

    Professional Quality and Foolproof

    By Constellations

    from Toronto, ON

    If you don't want the hassle of routing everything to a power supply, mounting it on a separate board, fastening your pedals in place etcetera, then this board is for you. It really is an all-in-one type deal, and the quality is definitely of the professional grade. I play in a worship band and travel to different churches to play, and I needed something that would keep all my pedals in place, hold up for weekly gigging, and be top quality. Although this unit it pricey, it is worth every penny! Secure latches, solid case (casters were a huge plus!), heavy-duty Velcro and the power-conditioner shields me completely from 60-cycle hum: I'm a fan! Convenience and pro-quality make this a great upgrade for any travelling musician.I highly recommend it; it is expensive, no doubt, but it is easy to use and the craftsmanship is top notch. I've been showing it off to all gear-freaks after every show as my secret weapon!

    A little pricey, but the best pedal board

    By prometh

    from Toronto, Canada

    I was comparing this to the SKB one at the time of purchase. I ended up choosing this one as Furman is a company experienced with power conditioning, whereas SKB is not. In the end, I am very happy with it.

    Not what I had hoped

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I owned one of these until about 6 months ago. I have about a dozen pedals and having one board to store them and power them with is a great idea. However, this just didn't do what I wanted. First of all, the SPB-8C is just too big and bulky for a pedalboard. it doesn't even fit under a bed! Secondly, it has a problem that every single pedalboard I've seen has: It uses velcro to secure the pedals. For me this is a big no-no. I don't like having my warranty stickers ripped off by adhesive strips. There are better ways pedals can be secured to pedalboards that do not damage labels and void warranties.

    Best thing I ever did!!

    By Dusty--fmx1

    from North Dakota

    Being that I am older and can afford better toys I picked up The Furman. It was one of the best upgrades I have done in years. The only thing that I had problems with was the velcro would not stay on the bottom of my pedals. I was able to put to use some of the Guitar gear that I was not using because of the space on the board and it's features. Best thing I ever did!! Dusty

    Much better than the SPB-8.

    By Vince-MtP_e

    from Albany, NY

    My SPB-8 failed me within the first 20 hours. I exchanged it for this. This seems like much better quality, not just because of the hard case, handle and wheels. I use a Hot Spot power supply for effects going through the loop, so there's no noise. I'm not sure if I actually need to do that with the SPB-8C, but I did with the SPB-8. The velcro carpeting doesn't feel like it'll hold pedals as well as the SPB-8, but none have fallen off yet.I just got it today after exchanging my failed SPB-8. Hopefully this one fares better.

    Totally Worth It!

    By Shaner 701

    from Fargo, ND

    This pedal board at first seemed really high priced. I just started getting into using pedals, so far I have 5 Boss pedals, Line 6 DL-4, and my 3 channel Marshall Switch on there, and I still have room for a couple more. The Pdealboard is worth every penny. It is so well built, extremely easy to haul around, set up/take down. If you have spent alot of money on pedals, this things is the ultimate protector. I'm so happy I didn't settle for a cheaper one.
