      This pedalboard delivers. I read some of the negative comments about this pedalboard but I have not experienced any of them. It worked the first time I pligged it in. I play this through a Crate Half Stack using a couple of Fender Stratocasters and they sound great. Pedals include a Vox Wah, Boss T-Wah, Boss Comp/Sus, Hardwire Metal Distortion, Boss DF-2, Ibanez Tube Screamer, Boss Bf-2, Ibanez Pt9 Phaser and Boss DD-2 in that order with lots of room to add more if chose. When I am not playing, it's relatively silent. Fair warning though, this is built like a Mack Truck so it's heavy...eat your wheaties! I love this thing!!

      I had this board for a little over two years, and loved it to bits, but over the past few months, I've started getting an unacceptable amount of hum when running through the inputs or the power supply (powering pedals or amps). Spent a few weeks trying to diagnose it, but I wound up having to stop using the power supply entirely.

          This is the probably the best pedal board I've ever used. My friend bought two of them and ended up giving me one.... FOR FREE! I must say, this thing has tons of room. I am currently running about 10 pedals on this thing and I feel as if I could add more if I had more flexible connectors.. like maybe a couple of lavas

          My only complaint is it not having an off/on switch so you could leave it plugged in and not being able to leave plug ins plugged in. Other than that it rocks!!

                I was very pumped when I got the board...until I hooked it up and plugged it in.I'm guessing something electrical was wrong..Very loud 60 cycle hum.I returned it,no questions asked and will try another one.I will try the replacement board.I'm sure it will be fine.

                  Iv'e had this board for five years with no issues. Well made and very durable, great for the gigging musician. Lots of room for pedals even the larger ones like EHX.

                    Comments about SKB PS-45 Professional Pedalboard:

                    I have owned this board for 3 months and it is very well built. It comes with different types of electrical cables and this proved useful as I have 2 pedals from the 80's. It is large enough to fit 8-12 pedals depending on the ones you own and the elecrical outlets are usefule if you need to connect another power supply. It also has the ability to connect 2 amps to it. My only 2 issues are minor, one is that the velcro does not stick to the pedals well enough, even after they have been throughly cleaned and the other is I am a bit of a neat freak and the wires and electrical cables are difficult to control the way they look. I have tie wraps and velcro trying to tame the way they look. Overall this is best board I have seen available and I would recommend this board. I happy with the purchase.

                          The PS-45 is a good pedalboard with a number of strengths but there are better options at a similar price. The case is super sturdy - probably the best aspect of the board. I used the patch bay and never had any problems with it. The power supplies are not isolated so it's possible to experience some noise. I also had one of the power supplies stop working. The wall outlets are great for plugging in different kinds of effects.

                          After using a PS-45 for a few years, I switched to a Pedaltrain Pro powered by Voodoo Labs supplies. For a very similar price you can get a Pedaltrain with gig bag (not as sturdy as the PS-45 case but durable enough for the vast majority of applications) and a Pedal Power 2. That allows you to have isolated power and to run you patch cables under the board. No matter how tidy I tried to make my PS-45, it always looked messy. I love my Pedaltrain - only wish I had made the switch sooner.

                          Comments about SKB PS-45 Professional Pedalboard:

                          if your looking for a pedal board, and you have the money, buy this board. you won't be dissapointed. i do a lot of gigging and for the ammount of pedals i use the size is great. this things gets tossed around quite a bit and still rocks. look no more this is the right product.
                          Couldn't be more satisfied with this board. super duarble, and plenty of room for all the pedals i use. built in power supply is probably the best part. comes with adapter cables for pedals and velcro to keep them in place.
                          Super duarable. lifetime warranty. nuff said.
                          a bit exspensive, but you cant beat how well made they are, and the built in power supply. totally worth the money.

                          Should have boult this years ago. Go big, so you can add pedals. Better investment that way.
                          Very nice & has good instructions. Only complaint if any, is no power switch. So, the whole thing powers up when you plug it in.

                          Nice little DC cables incl to save buying batteries all the time. One cable goes to the 9V battery port inside a stomp box - in case there's no DC plug on that pedal - only one of these - the other 8 are normal DC cables that plug into yout stomp boxes. Velcro strip also included, if you want to hold things in place.

                          You can go out into two amps and also have stereo effects loop going in the background outside your pedal chain.
                          Some reviewer said it had a weak floor - it does not. It's a solid place to stomp. The whole systrem is built very nicely - VERY RUGGED!
                          This is worth well more than it's listed for. Get one while you can! SKB never let me down yet!
