For those that have a pedal board they operate with their hands, what do you sit it on so you don't have to lean over to hit a pedal/button?

When the band starts all of the lights dim and the club owner can't figure out why the cash register drawer won't open.

During the first power chord the AC goes out and the Emergency Exit lights come on....

Not As impressive but I also stick my pedal board on top of a road case. Not elegant but works fine.

Pedal steel case. I can reach while sitting, but still hit buttons with my feet while standing with guitar.

If I am using my pedal board with my NV112, I use this setup, which sits to my right, everything within easy reach. The small speaker stand is mounted to a bracket on the bottom of the pedalboard. The bracket mounts with 4 male threaded knobs that screw into metal threaded inserts like those used in furniture you assemble yourself. If I used my NV400, which the chassis is built into a head that sits on the floor to my right, and the pedalboard sits on top. Everything is prewired with a chord to go into the guitar, a cord to go to the volume pedal, cord that run from the Zoom multi-effects pedal to the front effects loop of my NV400 (the reverb died in the amp - I use the amp reverb in the NV112). I mounted LED light strips on the bottom so I can see the knobs on my NV400, and if using the stand, it shines enough for me to better see my fretboard in the dark. I use my phone for set lists, so I mounted a phone holder on the pedalboard.

A snare stand works well with a pedaltrain jr. Fits in the leg case, or you can backline them. Also very handy for when you need to get on and off stage quickly - tighten it up and you can just lift from the center of the pedalboard.

I use a rack instead of a pedalboard, but the folding keyboard bench my rack sits on would work just as well for a pedalboard--without having to put that little case under the rack.

On top of two milk crates, where I can hit the switches with my right hand. Room for the amplifier head as well.

I built my pedal board into a rack case with wheels on the bottom, power supplies inside. Works great!

I only use 5 pedals, including tuner. I have mine set up like Mike's, except I have my Quilter Tone Block mounted with them. Quick setup.

Think I’ve outgrown this now. New pedal board is a converted bass guitar case.
Cheers
