Gator G-Tour Pedalboard-LGW Large (24" x 11")
With their experience in building instrument and gear cases, Gator is in a good position to build quality ready-to-use pedalboards. And that is exactly what they did with the G-Tour Large Pedalboard, combining traditional elements with modern reliability and portability.
It starts off with a plywood frame that can house 10 to 14 pedals, and features aluminum valance for added structural strength.
Your stompboxes are secured via 3M Dual Lock hook and loop fasteners, and it has 2 rubber grip handles that let you pull out the board from the case, for a more traditional flat on the floor setup.
Other features include retractable tow-handle, built-in cable storage (under the pedalboard), inline skate wheels, shock absorbing EVA foam interior, lockable latches, and protective ball corners that protect the case from impact at vulnerable edges.
Finally, a smaller variant of the G-Tour is available, in case you want something more compact but with the same road/air worthy features.
- Frame: Removable Plywood frame with Aluminum Edging
- Inclination: Flat
- Dimensions: 24" x 11" x 3"
- Weight: 12 lbs
- Pedal Fastener: 3M Dual Lock Hook and Loop

Many musicians tout the Gator G-Tour Large as a true roady worthy pedalboard. It is used by many to carry and protect different kinds of pedals, including big multi-effects processors like the Line 6 Helix. The G-Tour's Modular removable pedalboard design also gets a lot of thumbs up, while its tour ready hardcase give many guitarists the worry free travel that they deserve.
Some users caution that this heavy duty pedalboard is indeed heavy, they warn that you may end up damaging other gear, or injuring yourself if you're not careful. It is also bulky and will require a bit more trunk space than you'd expect. It also does not have the same setup ease provided by angled rail-type pedalboards.
The Gator G-Tour is definitely tour ready, get it if you're looking to carry multiple pedals to different venues and want the reliability of a solid flight case.
