The Gator GPT-BL-PWR is the smaller version of the GPW-PRO-PWR, with space for up to 8 regular size pedals.

The frame follows traditional plywood design, albeit covered in tolex for a more premium look.

The face of the board is covered in velcro for attaching your guitar pedals, velcro strips for the pedals are included in the package so you can setup your gear right out of the box.

It also has a sloped design that allows for a G-Bus 8 power supply to be secured under the board, with cables that can power up to eight 9V pedals and one 18V pedal (and 2 more if you get extra connectors).

Finally, this 16.5" x 12" board is bundled with a carrying case with a nifty pocket for storing compact gear and even cables.

Features:

  • Frame: Plywood Pedalboard Covered in Tolex
  • Inclination: Angled
  • Soft Case: Nylon Padded Carrying Case
  • Dimensions: 16.5" x 12" x 2.5"
  • Weight: 9.8 lbs.
  • Power Supply: G-Bus-8 with 8 x 9V, 3 x 18V Outputs
  • Accessories: Hook-and-loop strips, 9 x 24" straight end cables to power pedals, 8 x 9v & 1 x 18v cable

Pros

Rugged and easy to carry around is a good representation of actual market sentiment. Many are satisfied with the pedalboard's solid build and feel, and almost all users agree that the included carrying case is road worthy.

Cons

Some users express concern over the bundled G-Bus-8 power supply, warning that the thin power cable may give out at the most in-opportune time, especially if you're not careful with handling.

Overall

Traditional plywood based pedalboards have declined in popularity and aluminum boards now get higher ratings from users resulting in this coming off our recommended list in December 2019. To see those more highly rated options, go to our guide The Best Guitar Pedalboards.
