    If you are looking for a pedalboard for about 6-8 pedals for HOME USE only, so get it.i would change the stock adapter to a better one like 1 Spot. (It is daisy chain and not 8 power supply like voodo lab and so) The bag is a joke, thin, not protective and looks like the it won't carry the board with the pedals. Because I need it for gigs so i change it to Pedaltrain JR.
    So as I said, only for home use.
    As I said , the borad is cool. 8 cables from a power supply (daisy cahin), a massive but light board cover by a female clacro. BUT the bag is a joke. SKB are the bast case company in the world, they can do better with the case...
    It can hold 1 wah pedal ( the vlacro cannot hold it, or you need the get something like Stompin. I planed to drill 4 holes and connect it with long shaft screws) and about 6 boss/Mxr type pedals
    Again the board is cool. The bag is a joke. The power adapter didnt work! So i took it back and the store gave me a new one....I thought the if it Made In USA , at least they have a QC that check the power adapter before the ship it (it is a cheap chinees 500ma adapter). SKB give 5 years guarantee.

    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 Pedalboard:

    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.

    Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedalboard:

    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.

      Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedalboard:

      I have had this pedal board for almost a year now. I gave it an average rating because it's, well... average. It will serve its purpose of housing pedals and allowing you to get your power supplies down to one source. There is some noise, especially if your wiring in your home isn't great. I had no problems, but I hve read that some people have had issues with noise. I did have to open it up and resolder the hot lead back into the power adapter jack. I went to engage my wah and the whole board went dead and came back on... I imagine if this wire was soldered poorly that there could be other issues with quality as well. If you're having power issues or noise - check the solering and make sure it's all solid. Could be a bad ground connection.

      Anyway, like I said, it's a decent pedal board. The adhesive on the velcro doesn't stick to any of my pedals... The velcro is stronger than the adhesive. The inclusion of a 9v battery to 9v ac adapter cable was very nice!! I have a Sovtek Big Muf Pi that eats 9v batteris... not a problem anymore though.

        this board is really great, and the power supply is awesome. It had no trouble powering up 8 pedals. It just had trouble housing 8 pedals! Would have also liked a harder case - like the ps45. I ended up trading it in for a PS45. Most guys will love and keep this board - esp if they have only a few pedals

        Not Gig Quality

        By JAT

        from Atlanta

        Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedalboard:

        Bad product from a quality company, simple as that.
        Like someone else said, this board is just too noisy to use with anything other than bang around at-home solid state rigs. A fundamental lack of grounding somewhere.
        The only thing worse would be if is actively caught fire.
        You get what you pay for -- got mine for $40. Barely worth it as a surface to which I run OTHER power.

        Don't waste your money

        By NothinBeatsFender

        from Chicago, IL

        Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedalboard:

        I bought this last spring and had issues immediately. If you are a beginner to expanding guitar effects, it's the perfect learner's device, but the sound quality is terrible and it's manufactured very sloppily. The first thing I noticed when I plugged it in to my Fender Deluxe Tube amp is that there was a high pitched buzzing that never goes away so long as your instrument is plugged into a pedal that's being powered by the pedal board. It's almost as though the circuitry is being picked up audibly by the tube amp. This makes recording Direct Input with this pedal board impossible. It sounds terrible.After that, one of the power sources just stopped working one day, the connection to the outlet only works if you plug the adapter in at a strange angle, and the carrying case's handle snapped while I was walking.Terrible product. Save an extra $100 dollars and buy a better version.

        Very nice case - made in the USA!Not too big or too small - makes a great gig bag.Was disappointed with the poor quality of other cases by Gator "The Bone" Road Runner and ElectroHarmonics. This one does a good job at a good price.

        Meh! Could Use Some Improvements

        By Nikiddawg

        from New York City

        Comments about SKB PS-8 8-Port 9VDC Powered Pedalboard:

        First the good: Plenty of real estate on this thing. It is BIG. I guess this could be a negative as well. This thing easily holds 8 standard sized pedals or 6 and a wah. The electrical components seem to be pretty decent.Now the bad: The hook and loop material on the boar itself starts to fall apart as soon as you try to reposition the pedals with the industrial strength velcro tape. It also pulls away from the board. Very low quality fabric. The bag they give you absolutely sucks. Absolutely lame on the padding. Offers no real protection. I picked up the bag by the handle and the handle ripped right off of the bag. Called SKB and they sent me a new bag (good customer service but apparently the handle ripping off must not be uncommon). What I didn't notice until tonight is that when the board dropped to the ground after the handle broke, the board split open (the screw holes broke) from the impact. Horrible. Possible fixes (other than the cracking of the board which I guess I'll have to get some heavy duty glue to repair): Remove the fabric that they use to cover the board and replace it with some HEAVY DUTY indoor/outdoor carpeting from your bigblock hardware store. Next, buy some 2" thick foam rubber and line the bag with it to give the pedalboard some protection. Once you've done that, THEN you'll have a decent powered pedalboard. Of course, by then, you've added another $20 to $30 in materials onto the price of the thing just to get it to be IMHO the way it should have been built in the first place.In the sub $100 price point, there aren't many choices out there. I wish there were more options. I'm beginning to think that the best alternative is to make your own.
