I've been using the large board for 6 years now... and it looks it. The aluminum is beat, but no punctures. One of the feet came off the lid section, but fortunately not the board. It doesn't look pretty after the first couple shows, but it works very well.

I've looked at other budget boards that are cheaper and seem to be of similar quality, but they didn't have the feet on the board. The feet help keep the board from sliding around on a stage quite well. This is important, as a sliding board can a) make it more challenging to stomp on pedals, and b) become a safety hazard. Also, the budget boards say they use double-sided tape. The floor on this holds Velcro VERY WELL as-is. You only need the hook side of the Velcro. There's some included, but I'd get some industrial Velcro brand strips from any hardware store.

Seems like a cheaply made pedalboard, but mine's gone through hell and back. The lid is high enough that I keep all my cables in there when I'm transporting (18' guitar cable, 30' guitar cable, speaker cables for 2 amps, power cable for one amp, extension cable for the OneSpot, and I keep my mic stand pick holder in there).

I like the lift-off lid design way better than the PedalTrain that have the lift-out board. Seems like a pain, and you're moving more stuff around than necessary. I shy away from pedalboards with built-in power supplies as they are heavier, and if the power section goes, you just have an over-weight board. It's also the lightest pedalboard I've ever had.

I never had any problems with the "thin aluminum." Sure mine has dings and dents in it, but I've used it for two years and none of my pedals have been damaged.One thing that annoyed me is that the lip on bottom of the pedalboard (where your pedals lay) is too high. The beginning and end of my effects loop have to be at least 3-4 inches away from the edges for the 1/4" to fit without being bent. I guess the easy alternative would be just to buy some right angle cables, but I already forked out $100 between my Monster Cables before I got the board. That said, this is the cheapest board I've found that includes a hardshell case. But if I could do it again, I'd probably get a Road Rage or LYT pedalboard

    Comments about Road Runner Effects Pedal Board:

    I really like the lift-off top, and there is a large amount of room on it. But it's not as sturdy as I'd hoped. It's fine to lug around locally, but I would be very careful traveling long distances with it. It would be worth it to pay more money to get a sturdier set-up if that's what you need.

      Bought this to use with my acoustic guitar pedals. Works great. I like how it is an all in one system. I use a Pedaltrain Volto for power to my pedals and it works great to save even more space.

      Very roomy, holds all my effects and my voodoo power supply. Light gauge metal dents easy, I wouldn't check it with an airline, but for the price it's excellent.

      A light weight but very sturdy pedalboard. It holds all the pedals in my chain and with the floor being a little inset the lip keeps the pedals from moving all over the place even without velcroing them down.

      Comments about Road Runner Effects Pedal Board:

      Ok. I bought this as an alternative to my large pedal board. This one could possibly support two rows of 4 dod/boss sized pedals. A little tight on the input/output ports if you use standard straight 1/4" jacks. Velcro provided and like all Velcro, sticks real well until the case gets tossed around in the van a bit, the everything comes loose and when you open it you are greeted with a ball of pedals & cables. Yay.
      It could use a 1/2" step on the back row. My feet are pretty clumsy and the lift would help me zero in on that tiny on/off switch. The case seems a bit flimsy against my ATA cases. I also have the roadrunner 7 guitar case... It's the same. Low level short lifespan stuff. Will work until I sort out what I need & have a custom case made. Not a bad product for the money.

        A bit heavy. The rim of the base is about 1/2 inch too high. Could use an egg crate pad twice as thick to hold the pedals more securely. However, these issues are minor and pretty easy to adapt to. It is pretty cheap to add extra foam too. Glad I bought it.
