It only seems to be a problem on some pedals, on others it sticks like a mofo. I have a few that are absolutely fine, until you go to remove them and then the adhesive peels off, leaving the velcro strip on the board.

Cable ties are uurrrgggly. Perhaps with velcro its the move and remove and change thing which weakens the glue?

If you're having problems getting velcro to stick to the rubber of Boss pedals you can just pull that rubber bit off and put the velcro straight on to the metal surface.

I'm sure one of the DIY FX sites had a whole lot made and were selling them to TPG blues lawyer types

A trick for removing pedals without weakening the velcro adhesion - slide a bread knife along the pedalboard under the pedal. I've swapped and changed pedals lots of times without the velcro coming unstuck.

Powergrip / 3m dual lock are awesome. They're a bit expensive though and you do need very small pieces on the pedal otherwise it can be hard to get off. Velcro glue melts and cable ties are ugly.

I don't use many pedals or move them often so I just screw them into the board (bike chain style).

I reckon its the heat that makes the Velcro slip... my house gets pretty hot during the day in summer (gets over 50degrees in the ceiling and we have a DVS pumping that in), loosens the glue, gravity does the rest.

Might look into the 3m stuff, but best option is probably to modify my expectations and store my pedalboard flat in summer.

I've been talking to this company and saw them at NAMM too.

The product is utterly brilliant,their mounting solution is great and having the modular end panels with jack connections etc is something I've had on my board for years and wished someone would do it commercially.

The only thing that has slowed me down on bringing these in is the fact that once you factor in the board, all of the mounting plates, and shipping over here, they end up being not a cheap pedal board at all. Most NZ customers seem to prefer shopping on the budget end of the scale, so I'm not sure how viable it will be to sell them in any great number.

But yeah. Brilliant boards.

You sum it up pretty well. Good to know they're in conversation with you Matt.
