Diago Pedalboards




  • Diago Hardcase Pedalboards - Gigman, Showman & Tourman.

    Diago Pedalboards combine a lightweight and roadworthy pedal board and hard case, making them ideal for transporting your gear between home, gigs and practices. It makes set-up and take-down quick and easy, and is great for storing your pedals at home, so that they can be neatly hidden away from your wife/mum/significant other.

    Protection

    Nothing comes close to the protection a true hardcase offers. 1/2" eastern plywood and dense foam padding inside the lid keep your pedals protected from the rigors of the road - impact, scratching, dirt & moisture.

    Quality

    We wrap our 1/2" thick eastern plywood pedalboards in an attractive and super-durable polyweave skin, to keep the board looking great for a lifetime. We fit our boards with robust catches, high-quality hinges and steel corner strengtheners, and use a through-bolted amp-style handle for a really solid feel. Each board is assembled by hand in our factory and undergoes strict quality control for consistently fantastic pedalboards.

    Design

    The key to great design, is simplicity. Some boards come with bells and whistles such as a power splitter box (not even a power supply because you still need a wallwart - it's just a glorified daisy chain), an effects loop, or even a built in speaker. Why anyone would need any of these things built in is completely beyond us, so Diago Pedalboards do exactly what a good pedalboard should. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Flexibility

    Put whatever you like, wherever you like. All of our pedalboards are ideal for holding compact stomp effects, multi-effects, power supplies, wahs, volume pedals, channel switches, A/B boxes, and even DJ gear and synthesizers. In fact any combination of these, just so long as it all fits. See our Pedalboard Sizing Guide in the next tab for more information and check out the User Gallery below for some inspiration.

  • 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.
