The Pedaltrain Nano is meant to be a compact solution for musicians who use fewer pedals. At most, you can fit in 4 standard size pedals into this board, which has proven to be just the right number for many acoustic guitarists, vocalists, ukulele players, bassists and others.

The board itself features two rails of aircraft grade aluminum, which allows for basic side-by-side positioning of pedals.

It comes bundled with everything you need to setup your pedals and cables, including 36" adhesive hook-and-loop velcro for fastening your stompboxes to the rails, and assorted zip ties for clutter-free cable positioning.

Finally, the Pedaltrain Nano comes bundled with a basic soft case that lets you carry the pedalboard and the pedals conveniently in one bag.

  • Frame: Lightweight Aircraft Grade Aluminum 2-rail Setup
  • Inclination: Flat
  • Dimensions: 14" x 5.5" x 1"
  • Softcase Dimensions: 15" x 8.5" x 3.5"

  • Accessories: Assorted Zip Ties.

Pros

Many users describe the Pedaltrain Nano as being "perfect for what it is", a compact board for a small rig. Interestingly, many of the reviewers reported that they switched from a bigger board, in favor of portability and simplicity, and they found the switch to the Pedaltrain Nano to be an overall positive experience.

Cons

There were some who complained about to the Pedaltrain Nano's flat profile, and reported that they had to modify the foot of the pedal to make room for a power supply unit below the rails. Some users were not happy with bundled soft case, again pointing to its lack of a cable pouch. There were also a few users who were annoyed by the bag's side zipper opening, which requires you to slide in the board into the bag.

Overall

Although the Pedaltrain Nano remains a good compact pedalboard, we removed it from our recommended list in April 2018, after a detailed review of the category, because there were then more highly rated options which you can see in our guide to The Best Pedalboards.
