Here is the RockBoard® news at a glance:
RockBoard® PedalSafe® & QuickMount®
With the revolutionary and worldwide patented RockBoard® PedalSafe® system, the beloved effect pedals are finally protected from beer showers and other dirt. The robust RockBoard® PedalSafes® are transparent rubber covers with removable caps for easy access to the pedal controls and jacks etc. They protect your pedals and keep them in perfect condition. No dirt, beer, dust or sweat will get through while you rock! The PedalSafe® covers are clamped onto mounting plates that can be attached to each pedal board with screws or Velcro tape.
The PedalSafes® are also compatible with the RockBoard® QuickMount® system and each PedalSafe® is also available with the appropriate QuickMount® mounting plate for use with the RockBoard® series. RockBoard® QuickMount® mounting plates are available for a variety of pedal shapes without the need for Velcro. Simply screw them to your pedals using the screws from the back plates (or the longer screws supplied, if necessary) and click them into the slotted grid on the surface of your RockBoard® and simply remove them using the QuickRelease tool. The also new CableFix keeps your cables in place.
