Pedaltrain Metro 16 SC Pedalboard with Soft Case PT-M16-SC (16" x 8")
Pedaltrain's Metro series features the same powder-coated aircraft grade aluminum railings that are favored for being lighter and stronger than conventional plywood boards.
The main difference that the Metro series offers is its 3 railing configuration and non-angled flat profile. The 3-rail design is specifically meant for musicians with pedals that have different shapes and sizes. The top rail is ideal for accommodating taller pedals, or for positioning compact pedals horizontally.
The same standard Pedaltrain features apply, including the use of adhesive back Hook and Loop pedal fasteners, bundled zip ties and a padded cordura nylon gig bag.
You can avail yourself of the Metro 16 TC if you prefer one that is bundled with a hard case, and you can also check out wider variants, the Metro 20 and Metro 24.

The Pedaltrain Metro 16 SC is rated highly for its rigid build, and for the convenience it offers. Many guitarists find that the 3-rail design made pedal setup easier, while keeping the size and weight manageable. Most of the positive ratings are from musicians who have small to medium size rigs, and prefer their pedals on a non-angled board.
There are a few users who wished that the price was a bit lower. While a few complain about the lack of bottom space, but this is an obvious physical limitation when compared to other angled Pedaltrain models.
The Pedaltrain Metro 16 is a very good pedalboard but it just missed out on securing a spot on our recommended list when we updated it in December 2019 - it was nudged out by other Pedaltrain boards which you can see in our guide to The Best Guitar Pedalboards.
