Manage your pedals without busting the bank

It's a situation that any guitarist or bassist will be familiar with: Your live effects setup goes from two pedals to three, then suddenly to four. And before you know it, you're stuck with the hassle of connecting and disconnecting them all individually. Fortunately, Gator has an affordable solution to hand with the GPT-Black. Measuring 420 mm x 305 mm, this slightly slanted wooden pedalboard has space for around six pedals, which can be fixed to the board using hook-and-loop tape - so once your cable connections are in place, they can stay that way. What is more, a fixture for mounting a multi-pedal power supply is provided on the underside of the GPT-Black, and the board comes complete with a black nylon carrying case. The spacious pocket on the front of the case is also perfect for storing all manner of other accessories.

Keep your effects in order

The GTP-Black features a sturdy plywood construction and black Tolex covering. It provides a 420 mm x 305 mm surface for your pedals, which is completely covered with female hook-and-loop material and angled towards the player. Two long strips of male hook-and-loop tape are included to allow pedals to be fixed in place. Four holes for fixing screws are also provided on the underside of the board, allowing multi-pedal power supplies like the Gator G-Bus-8 and others of similar size to be permanently mounted. The power supply's output cables can be routed to the pedals via the small slot at the upper edge of the board. The design of this pedalboard not only gives you more space for your pedals, it also lets you keep everything tidy and makes tangled cables a thing of the past.

One for the minimalists

The GPT-Black is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a basic board for a small number of pedals that won't break the bank. It can easily accommodate four to six standard-size pedals (e.g. Boss compact effects) without making too much complicated tap-dancing necessary on stage. If patch cables with flat connectors are used and the pedals aren't too wide, it should even be possible to fit up to eight pedals onto the board. This will increase the risk of accidentally stepping on two pedals at the same time, however. The hook-and-loop covering lets you position your pedals in whatever way to want, and if one of your pedals breaks down, you can easily remove it from the signal chain during a break in the set.

About Gator

Gator, or Gator Cases, is an American firm founded in 2000 by father-daughter team Jerry Freed and Crystal Morris in Tampa, Florida. Initially, Gator began with a modest range of moulded plastic guitar cases. From there, they expanded the product line to include case and bag solutions for the whole field of instruments and equipment. A wide variety is covered: Instruments, microphones, and all aspects of live performance, including lighting equipment. At the same time, products for other media areas such as photo and video are also available. All products are made of high-quality plastics, wood, textiles, and EVA materials. The Gator companies also include flight case manufacturer Viking Cases and guitar strap manufacturer Levy's Leathers Ltd., as well as Gator Rackworks and Gator Frameworks.

More space on stage

The diminutive GPT-Black is particularly suitable for gigging on very small stages, where every inch of space counts. The board's lightweight nylon carrying case is padded to protect your pedals and, unlike a cumbersome hardshell case, it is remarkably easy to transport. It is worth noting that the carrying handle is permanently fixed to the board, and it protrudes through a slot in the case. This has the advantage that the board can easily be carried on and off stage with just one hand, without needing the case. Once the board has been put back in its case, all manner of other accessories can be stashed inside, and the capacious front pocket provides space for things like instrument cables, power cords, and even an additional effect pedal.

Good, cheap Board
Johann459 14.02.2014
The board is really good, but I had to stick some parts of the cover, which stood away. It took me only some minutes to stick them, so in the end, it doesnt really matter.
The reason why I bought it was the size and the cost-performance ratio, as it is much cheaper than a pedaltrain.
I can put 5 Boss-Size pedals (eg. BD-2) a Wah Wah(CryBaby) and the PowerPlant Junior on it. You can also use the Gator Power Supply and fix it at the reverse side of the Gator GPT so you can use one more Boss-Size pedal. I fixed every pedal with velcro and it holds without problems. I removed the rubber pads of my CryBaby to lower it, so it fits better into the Bag.
The included Bag is better processed than the Board. I have nothing to criticize and the Board fits in perfectly. But you have to use the right technique to get it in.
There is a hole for the carrying handle of the Board in the Bag, so the weight doesnt last on the Bag itself.
The weight is acceptable, since the board is small and made of wood.
I have the Gator GPT since 3 months. I would buy it again.

Simple and works

This is one of the best things I have ever bought. I had previously used digital fx and swapped to pedal based effects with the intention of getting a big pedaltrain board or the like but never got the cash together for it and decided to chuck this in with an order as it was 35 quid. And its the job. Didn't think I'd be able to get that many pedals on it. Currently have 7(8 including external tempo input for delay). Its also been chucked in and out of the car and home and band room and venues a billion times since I've had it and still going as good as the day I got it. Pocket on the front is well handy for keeping spare leads and whatever even though after you've got it fully setup up theres not much room but still enough for a few leads, ebow, slide and spare strings. Sayin all that I'd stil recommend it even if you've got 2 or 3 pedals. 35 is not a whole lot to part with to make your life that much easier.

Less is more

I love these Pedal Tote boards - sturdy, simple and comfortable to use both on stage and in the studio.

I already have the big brother of this board but got a little sick of carrying it all the time (it's a little cumbersome even if it is a great piece of gear) and opted for the smaller version.

It?s a nice chunky board and, like its larger counterpart, has a screw-mounting facility for a multi-pedal power supply on the underside, though I place mine on the top side (just my preference); the Velcro material covering is sturdy and well-attached, and the whole board is angled slightly backwards to make the pedal tops visible when playing standing up, which makes it great for live playing too.

The bag it comes with is nice and light but still very sturdy and the pocket on the back is a lot more spacious than it looks. I definitely recommend trying one of these out ? it?s perfect for me and amazing value for the money (and hey, it? wood so it?s pretty eco-friendly too!).

Solid mid-size pedalboard
Anonymous 21.02.2017
This pedalboard is a solid piece of plywood covered with tolex material. This one is built with quality and really built like a tank. Perfect for gig musicians that want to have mid-size pedalboard. The surface of this pedalboard is completely covered with velcro that allows you to put pedals at any position and order. Another advantage of this option is that you can?t be stressed that pedals will have little space of velcro contact and will fall off the board. Velcro for pedals is also included so there is no need to buy it additionally - provided amount of velcro is completely enough. However, the ONLY disadvantage is that wires should be placed above surface. The only gap is in upper part of board - for power wires that could lead to power block placed at the bottom of pedalboard. Space there is completely enough for putting mid-size power plant. It has also 4 screws that allows you to bolt-on original Gator power supply which I find nice to have.
Carrying bag included. Bag has additional pocket that can be used for cables and other related things - it?s quite big and even some additional pedals fits inside. Height of main pocket where pedalboard is stored allows also to put more pedals that didn?t fit on board. Rubber legs on a back of bag allows you to place board on stage without taking it from the bad and not be afraid that bag could be teared apart. This also I find very smart solution that saves time on stage for setting your rig up.
