Diago Commuter

Ultra-Portable Softcase Pedalboard



  • Diago Commuter - for the guitarist on the move.

    There are times when a hardcase pedalboard just isn't practical. You might be travelling on foot, or on the underground/metro, swinging by for a quick practice after work, or playing an acoustic set where you just need a few pedals. The Diago Commuter is an ultra-portable and lightweight alternative to our hardcase pedalboards.

    Stomp with confidence.

    The Commuter features a 12mm thick HDF board, with a tough, satin black coating for years of use on the road. We added 6 rubber pads, for high rigidity and to distribute weight evenly for a sturdy, solid feel. Nobody wants their board to bend when they step on a pedal.

    Can you handle it?

    There's a built-in handle, machined right into the HDF board, for pulling the board out the case and carrying it about on stage. But if you don't need the handle, just stick your pedals over it - the Velcro goes right to the edge.

    Just the right size.

    The Commuter is both compact and portable, but is still a very useful size. It will hold up to 10 Boss-sized effects pedals, plus a Diago Powerstation or Micropower9 power supply. Crybaby-style wah pedals fit perfectly and you can check the Large Pedal/Multi-FX Compatibility tab to see if your other larger pedals will fit inside.

    We also added a deep pocket with zip closure on the front of the case, for your cables and other loose accessories, phone, or even a netbook computer.

    Secure Hook & Loop pedal fixing system.

    The Commuter features the very same super-grippy pedal carpet we use on our hardcase pedalboards. Unlike some poor-quality carpet, ours does not deteriorate or become fluffy with repeated removal of pedals - it'll remain grippy for the lifetime of the board.

    Each Commuter comes with 2m/6"6' of our self-adhesive pedal tape.

    Don't underestimate the strength of Velcro.

    When the self-adhesive hook tape is applied properly, your pedals will not come loose.

    Protect your pedals, wherever your music takes you.

    The Commuter's rugged carry case features a dense EPE foam shell and a hard-wearing 600 denier fabric covering for both impact and scratch resistance.

    Roadworthy Hardware.

    Heavy duty zips and robust ABS clips keep your gear safe and secure. The gigbag also features a carry handle and padded shoulder strap, both made from chunky nylon webbing. There's a reason this is used on mountaineering rucksacks - it's simply best material for the job.

  • Which Pedalboard is right for me?

    We often get asked to recommend a board size to people, and it's a difficult question to answer. We're familiar with thousands of pedals, and always happy to give advice and recommendations, but in general it really comes down to the specifics of your pedals, patch cables, power supply and how you want to have them laid out and wired together.

    Do you want all your pedals to be in one row? What order do you want them in? What kind of power supply do you have? Even something as simple as the type of patch leads you use can make a massive difference to the amount of space you need. Have a look at the User Gallery below for a bit of inspiration, ultimately though, only you can decide what's best for you.

    There are two ways we recommend deciding; use Method 1 if you already have a board size in mind, and would like to know if your pedals will fit inside; use Method 2 if you have a particular layout in mind and would like to select a board to fit your pedals.

    Method 1: Will a XXXXman fit my pedals?

    • Find some tape (Sellotape, masking tape, gaffer tape etc.)
    • Mark out a rectangle on the floor, to the size of the pedal board in question
    • Attempt to fit your pedals within the area, to your liking. Remember to include all power and signal cabling
    • Decide whether it's OK or not?!

    Method 2: I have XXXX pedals; what size pedal board is best?

    • Lay your pedals out on the floor to your liking. Remember to include all power and signal cabling
    • Find some tape (Sellotape, masking tape, gaffer tape etc.)
    • Mark out a rectangle on the floor, around your gear.
    • Measure the rectangle size and compare it to the 3 pedal board sizes
    • Decide which pedal board suits you best - you may have to revise your layout a couple of times to make the optimal use of space.
