Blackbird Pedalboards

Blackbird Pedalboards, which just started business in 2009, is a new comer to SEGAS. However, that didn't keep them from grabbing the highest award in their category at the expo.

Blackbird makes highly customizable pedalboards, where you can take control of details from the color to over all layout. You can pick a tolex to match your amp, or a wood to match your guitar, you decide what materials to use and how it would look like all without sacrificing functionality.

Blackbird Pedalboards filled their booth with several of these customized boards and immediately caught the attention of the attendees. The pedalboards on display highlighted Blackbird's combination of good aesthetics and practical functionality. This won them the 2011 Southeastern Guitar and Amp Show - "Best in Show" and "Best New Product" award.

Even the performers and fellow exhibitors had something to say, and to quote Mike McAndrew of Pigtronix Effects: “Instantly, I was very impressed with the demo boards, their overall presentation, and the intrigue of having my own custom pedalboard built to my specs. I have since ordered and designed my own custom Blackbird Pedalboard and I can’t wait to receive it!”. Andy Wood who performed that day summed it up by saying: "“Blackbird makes some mighty fine lookin’ boards”.

The 2011 SEGAS had over 2000 attendees and over 50 different vendors. The other winners that took the "Best in Show" in their respective categories are:

  • Best Amplifier: Blackfoot Custom Amps
  • Best Vintage Guitar: Music Room Guitars
  • Best New Guitar: Guitar Logistics

Blackbird Pedalboards are available at different prices depending on size and material used, current pricing starts at $110 at 15 x 20.
