Overview

Often imitated, the original Furman SPB-8 was the first stereo pedal board on the market. Furman now offers its successor, the SPB-8C Powered Pedal Board. Featuring a hardshell case, more outlets, improved jacks, and a streamlined look, the SPB-8C improves on the innovative design that made the original pedal board so popular.

Pedal Board
The SPB-8C pedal board features heavy duty metal construction that will handle the most forceful stomps you can offer, as well as stand up to the rigors of the road. At the heart of the SPB-8C pedal board is a light yet rugged polycarbonate platform in combination with an extruded aluminum chassis and an ample 13.75" x 26.75" Velcro sheet. This durable construction ensures secure, non-slip performance of your effects boxes and pedals.

The SPB-C's stereo patch bay contains eight 1/4" switching phone jacks featuring sturdy metal bushings, connected in two stereo loops. This allows a single guitar or instrument input to feed multiple mono and stereo effects boxes, send and return from remote effects, and feed up to two amplifiers simultaneously. From modest to highly complex patching demands, the SPB-8C allows nearly unlimited set-up flexibility.

Powering your pedals, amps and other gear, the SPB-8C offers two levels of surge and short circuit protection, as well as Furman's standard level of RFI/EMI filtering. Furman's SPB-8C is quiet, powering DC pedals without hum, due to the high quality toroid transformer employed. Each DC output is rated at 120 mA, as well as being individually protected against shorts, guaranteeing that if one pedal goes out, the rest will continue to function. Further, these DC outputs are individually isolated, eliminating noisy ground loops. The SPB-8C also includes four AC outlets, spaced widely enough to accommodate bulky "wall wart" transformers.

Hardshell Case
The Furman SPB-8C features a durable polyethylene hardshell case. Built to cater to the demands of the working professional, the case is large enough to accommodate the pedal board and all attached effects, allowing the musician to keep all pedals and stompboxes patched and connected from gig to gig. A retractable handle and inline skate wheels allow for easy transport, while heavy-duty latches ensure the case will remain securely closed when not in use.

works great

Comments about Furman SPB-8C Stereo Pedalboard:

I played my first gig using this pedalboard and it works great ... it's very durable and the power conditioning is of the Furman standard. I briefly owned an SKB pedal board (the SKB PS-55)featuring the cable tester and the direct line 6 connections), and within the first day my SKB had a short circuited 12V output. I took it back the next day and picked up the Furman. When in doubt just go Furman. My only throw of caution to the wind is that this model of the SPB has slightly weaker velcro than the previous one.

Almost there......

Comments about Furman SPB-8C Stereo Pedalboard:

I had the older version ( Furman SPB-8 ) but the bag fell apart after a year of use and the power strip went bad....I decided to try the new SPB -8C and after about a year use of this, I am happy to report that the case seems indestructible....the wheels and handle are great....I've used the patch bay twice for running stereo and that worked great as well...the detached cable also helps with packing up and doesn't get in the way like the older version....but I do have 2 gripes...the first is that occasionally, the pedal power supply cables provided with the unit eventually go bad...sometimes during a gig..you can usually tap where it plugs into the strip and make that determination...and my 2nd and biggest gripe is that the adhesive on the velcro provided is useless. It lasted about a day. No prob with the velcro sticking sticking to the board...ya just can't get the velcro to stick to the pedal...so I cringe every time I open the case and see my pedals all over...which the purchase of this board was supposed to alleviate....I suppose if I can find better adhesive then I will be happier, but shouldn't Furman find a better adhesive to include on the velcro?
