WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE: YOU HURRY to get you gear on stage and hooked up, only to discover that you've forgotten the extension cord needed to run power out your pedalboard.

Constructed of 16-gauge steel, and measuring 23"x 19"x 4", Pedal Jeanie features a perforated "matrix" design that makes it easy to place your pedals where you want them and quickly make the connections. On the front underside of the angled board is a panel with ten DC outputs (each with an LED), which are configured to power eight 9-volt and two 12-volt devices. Additional 12-, 18-, and 24-volt pedals can also be powered via an optional line module.

A heavy-duty stomp switch turns the power on, and a battery level indicator glows green, orange, or red to indicate charge status.

Pedal Jeanie also features a stainless-steel handle for easy carry. Options include soft padded cases, hard cases, and a handy car charger.
