Gator GPB-LAK-1 Aluminum Pedalboard Small (15.75" x 7")
The Gator Aluminum Pedalboard series wins the heart of many guitarists with its white, orange and green color options, but don't fret if you're a hardcore metal guitarist who want black on everything from your eye shadow, to your guitar, to your nails - they do offer one in black.
Instead of utilizing rails, Gator opted for a solid but thinner profile, while providing streamlined perforations in just the right spots for clutter-free cabling.
This particular model is 15.75" wide, which is enough width to carry up to five regular size stompboxes side by side (with cables).
To secure the pedals, it comes with adhesive hook and loop strips, while the underside features no-slip rubber for stability.
Finally, it comes bundled with a polyethylene storage bag.

Most of the high ratings that this board received are from users who are impressed with its combination of slick looks and durability. Some even report using the board at home for mounting compact mixers and other gear. The included carrying bag also got a lot of praise, which is not surprising since Gator is known for their quality gig bags and instrument cases.
Not much in the way of complaints, other than a few who caution that most guitarists will probably outgrow this small board.
If you're looking for a slick looking board for your minimalist pedal setup, then the Gator Aluminum Pedalboard Small is a reasonable option. However, you might like to see the slightly higher rated options which replaced it on our recommended list in December 2019 which is in our guide to The Best Guitar Pedalboards.
