SKB Redefines The “Affordable” Pedalboard

SKB Redefines the “Affordable” Pedalboard

December 14, 2009

ORANGE, CA - SKB Corporation has consistently met or exceeded the needs of their customers and the new SKB-PS-8 is right in line with that philosophy. Customers asked for a simple, powered pedal board for under a $100 and SKB delivered!

The 1SKB-PS-8 Powered Pedalboard is injection-molded from eco-friendly rubber modified styrene which provides for a very durable and rigid, yet lightweight platform for guitarist’s effect pedals. The 1SKB-PS-8 features eight (8) built-in 9VDC output jacks and an external transformer rated at 500mA of total current. The large 19” x 12” hook and loop surface allows for secure pedal positioning up to eight (8) standard size pedals. All cables are included for powering the most popular pedals. Also included is a heavy-duty ballistic nylon carry bag with exterior zipper pocket and adjustable shoulder strap.

“Customers looking for a pedalboard solution that is simple to setup, yet has enough power to run their battery powered pedals, are going to love this board!” stated Steph Maffei, SKB Product Manager. “In the past, guitarists had to sacrifice quality to get a pedal board in this price range. With the PS-8, they will have a pedalboard that will be able to take the beatings of nightly gigs and still perform as expected.”

The new SKB-PS-8 board itself is covered by SKB’s unsurpassed no-fault Million Mile Guaranty™ (Lifetime Warranty). The electronics carry a 5 year warranty.

The 1SKB-PS-8 will be available January, 2010 from authorized SKB dealers at an estimated street price of $99.99 (US).

If you need more than a zippered bag for your pedal board, SKB will be offering the
1SKB-SC2613 Soft Case as an alternative to the standard gig bag. The SC2316 consists of rigid EPS foam interior surrounded by a heavy-duty canvas exterior with exterior zippered pocket. Pricing and availability for the 1SKB-SC2316 is not available at press time.
