      This pedal board is pretty straight forward. It's nice has a good design with the whole board being Velcro, and works just fine. With all the negative reviews, what do you expect? This pedal board is a good small size for someone who doesn't have too many pedals and the feature that powers the pedal built into it is great. It's a great pedal board for the standard home user, don't expect this to be road worthy.

      I've had this pedal board for nearly a year now. It would be perfectly fine except for one fact. SKB switched suppliers for the AC Adapter, the one that comes with it now is HORRIBLE. It causes a loud buzzing that just kills the sound. The other guitarist in my band has the same board, same pedals, we tried his adapter, the buzz goes. He has the older one....I called SKB, their customer service is very nice. They sent me another of the same adapter for free, but it has the same problem.

      Also one of the zippers on the bag has broken already. Seems to be cheap quality.

      This would be a great board but SKB seems to be knowingly shipping out poor quality adapters and do not have a solution for it. They want me now to send in my board for a new one. The problem is with the adapter not the board!!

        Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedal Board:

        I basically threw away money buying this pedal. I dont normally write reviews, but since I wish I had read them before I purchased this thing, Im leaving one. The whole point of this board was to hold the few pedals I have and power them on a small board which is all i needed. well, as soon as i hooked it up, i had the most terrible hiss, i couldnt even play over it. so after trouble shooting i realized it was the power supply causing the noise. so i bought a voodoo labs power supply to run my pedals hiss free and it does an excellent job. the only problem is now that i have to put the power supply on the board, i cant use my basic pedal set up, and i dont use a lot so the few i do have are necessary for me. so now i will be getting rid of this junk and will be reading reviews before every purchase i make in the future.

          Board is nice size and weight and is attractive looking, but I got an electronic squeal through my amp when I used. I put batteries in all my effects pedals and no noise or squeal. I then bought a T-Rex power supply. Very quiet. All power channels isolated. Will build my own board and use T-rex supply.

          Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedal Board:

          I bought this Stupid Deal and regret it. It is very noisy unless you open it up and repair loose wiring. The Velcro sticks to the board but won't stay on your pedals at all, leaving a gooey mess on the bottom of the pedals. The pedals will not stay in place and will end up piled on the bottom of the case if you travel any where.
          The carrying case feels like it is going to fall apart and mine has. If you don't need to move the pedal board it will serve its purpose.

          Not too big, not too small, just right.

          The body is made of rugged plastic.

          Fits in tight quarters, but can hold a lot of pedals.

          My only gripe, and hence the 4 star rating: The carrying case has an outside pouch for extra cables and such. They put the zipper on the top of the pouch, as you are looking at the bag. Problem is, you flip the bag open, kind of like a hood on a car, and now the zipper is on the bottom. So as you are packing up the pedal board, everything that is in the pouch spills out.

          I was loading it up to go to the studio, and had to stop several times to repack everything. Not a big deal if you know EXACTLY what you want to bring, can load up the pouch and zip it shut first. But if you are like me, and constantly thinking of things to add or subtract, it gets to be annoying. Had the zipper been on the side, it would've worked better for me.

            The board is what you would expect. Fine for home and occasional light duty gigs. All the terrible reviews about the AC adapter are spot on. The adapter is noisy. Used another higher quality one we had at the house. SKB must have brought a pile of these awful adapters into inventory, or they would have substituted by now. Plan to replace the unit that comes with the board.

            Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedal Board:

            I initially liked the integrated approach of this design with the inbuilt power distribution, cary case, 8 pedal capacity and all at a reasonable price compared to other pedalboards.

            However once I received it, I was very disappointed with the overall quality of the unit. The power supply was very noisy particularly with my Line 6 Echo Park which made the power supply unusable for this pedal. The connectors are of very low quality - both on the power supply and also the power leads to the pedals - and during my first use, the power supply connector to the board broke rendering the whole board useless. This is definitely not a product for anyone doing any level of gigging and needs their stuff to work night after night.

            MF did me a solid and allowed me to swap this out to a higher priced board and separate power supply that hopefully is a little more robust and less noisy - I guess you get what you pay for...

            Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedal Board:

            This compact powered pedalboard is ok for a first effects setup, or a home studio board that isn't moved around for gigs. The bag is junk, the input jacks for the pedal cables are poorly constructed, and the AC adapter cable is too small for the input on the board. On the positive side, the board itself feels pretty solid, the power works well and is reasonably quiet, and it's small enough to fit in a cramped home studio or crowded rehearsal space. This board provides up to 500 milliamps of power and comes with velcro strips you can cut to fit your pedals which helps secure them to the board.

            I'm a bass player and wanted something to hold my toys. the board itself is cool.....but the CASE they give you should NEVER be used. The .05 cent zipper is ready to break with a breath and the opening faces down when the handle or strap is being used.
            Considering SKB normally makes OK Cases this shocked me.
            The fact they even give this bag away is unconscionable considering the weight and cost of what its going to hold when loaded.
            The Boards fine... but when you buy it do yourself a favor and throw the bag/case out. dropping all your favorite pedals due to bad design and junk zipper anit worth it.
