It's not a "pro quality" pedal board. I'm not a pro, so that's fine. I put my pedals on it, they stay put, and they're powered when I plug the board in. Can you argue with that? No, you can't. It's cheap, so expect it to wear out at some point. If it does, go buy another or save your nickles for something more expensive and hopefully more road worthy. I'm not too rough on my gear, so I've been pretty satisfied so far.
Pretty good in the way of features: carry bag (pretty good quality bag, I haven't had any issues with it), ample velcro to work with, a good amount of power to go around, a fair amount of room for typical size Boss or Digitech sized pedals. It does what is says it will, power your pedals and keep them still (as long as the pedal stays glued to the velcro).
I'm giving it a little ding on quality only because the power adapter is a little flimsly. I see this unit developing a short before the rest of the board shows any kind of wear. I read reports of the board seperating from power strip, but that wouldn't make it work any less. So far, It's held up to about 8 months of weekly use.
For the money, it's hard to beat this. In hindsite, I might spend the money on a standalone power supply unit and just make a board out of 1/8in plywood or something. But, I'm lazy, so there's very little chance of me actually doing all that. With this thing, I put all my pedals on it and it just worked. I might buy another to put some other pedals on it. It's so easy to just plop this thing down and plug it in, you don't even have to take it out of the bag if you don't want to (at some gigs, you might want to just leave it in there. stuff just walks away too often, ya know).

As a loyal customer, I'm so bummed MF thinks it's ok to sell this piece of junk. I got it as a Christmas present. I was excited, having never owned a "real" pedalboard before. Fast forward less than a month, and the power supply has completely separated from the board. The board is covered with little wood chips, caused by the screws wrenching themselves free from whatever sliver of substandard wood the board is constructed of. In addition, the foam padding has started to peel off the bottom of the power supply, where it rests on the floor. And this after only about 3 practices. I'll be looking into a refund, for sure.

Comments about Musician's Gear Powered Pedal Board and Gig Bag:

I ordered this board because the previous board I ordered from Musicians Friend is on back order until March. Of course no one told me that. I had to open a chat to find that out when I received shipment of part of my order. I have had other pedal boards, and this was going to just be an addition so I could build a back up board. I didn't want to spend much. Here are the issues. (1) The zippers are just cheap, cheap and hard to unzip. (2) But the BIGGER issue is the design. When you unzip the case the board the "pedal board" comes out of the case like a slab of flat plywood. No angle. No metal. Just a flat piece of board covered in a black felt type lining. I know it's inexpensive but I expected something better than this.

    I bought one of these 15 years ago because I found the prices of other pedal boards absurd. This hasn't let me down once. Save your money and get this perfectly fine product.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Powered Pedal Board and Gig Bag:

      I purchased this as a birthday present for my husband. When he plugged his pedals in, it turned off. We thought it was a fluke and sent it back for an exchange. We received the second pedal board and it had the exact same problem. As soon as he plugged in the pedal...and I say pedal cause it only took 1 to turn it off. It's a big problem when you buy a POWERED pedal board and the POWER part doesn't work. Skip this purchase, save your money and buy the roadrunner with a One spot or similar hookup. This was so disappointing to me...nothing like buying a birthday present that doesn't work!

      Comments about Musician's Gear Powered Pedal Board and Gig Bag:

      I read a lot of these reviews and I have sollutions to the top two complaints, the poor construction and poor sound (on later models, apparently). For poor sound, I didn't even mess with it, I just bought a 1 Spot Combo Pack - preferred because they have a great clean sound, probably would have bought it even without the bad reviews. As for the poor construction, mine came with the electronic portion already pulled away from the "board". Very light weight, likewise, the screws pull out easily but think about it, you want it to be light. The solution for this is cheap, you get 5 #6 bolts 3/4" in length along with the nuts. You use a 9/64" to drill through the holes. I would recommend leaving the outer screws to start, do the middle three then do the outer ones. Use an xacto to lightly pull the felt away from the bottom of the bolt, add the nut and tighten. If you are the type of player that literally stomps on this thing, I'm sure it will just break the entire board part. Reinforce it with a thin strip of wood such that the electronics don't actually touch the stage/floor, probably a 1"x2" piece of wood (which is actually 3/4"x1.75"). Hope this helps.

      This is a very nice case for the money! To get the next level of similar type case you will have to spend three times the money. I have had mine now for well over a year. It is loaded with pedals and heavy, but has held up for the most part. The shoulder strap came loose and I had to reattach it, but otherwise all great. I am very happy with it. I have had no issue with the power supply humming or the strip detaching. I practice with my band weekly and we play 6-10 gigs a year. I have done this with no problem and still working.

                  Comments about Musician's Gear Powered Pedal Board and Gig Bag:

                  When using the included self powered adaptor the FX chain picks up a "Loud" 60 cycle hum. This product is unusable. If it didn't cost half of what I paid for it I would return it. I will probably try and jerry rig my own power source and just use the board without the self powered feature
