About

We spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to find that perfect tone. Yet we trust a $3 piece of velcro to hold a $400+ effects pedal onto our pedalboard. It's time for something new! The revolutionary Monarch pedalboard system uses a patented "track and vise" system to secure pedals from the sides of the pedal, instead of adhering some form of "tape" to the bottom. Velcro and Pedal tape wear out after a short while. Tie wraps can be sloppy and become brittle over time. Stompsters secure your pedals but only to wood boards that will eventually chew up the surface if you move your pedals around a lot.

You invest so much money into your gear. It's time to protect your investment with a Monarch Pedalboard. Just imagine, no more messing with taking adhesives off when selling a pedal or trying to apply velcro to a pedal with feet or a rubber surface. Imagine arriving at a venue and your pedals are right where you left them. No shorts in your signal chain due to your pedals moving around from worn out velcro. This is the answer!

The durable construction of a Monarch Pedalboard can withstand even the most grueling touring bands

Risks and challenges

The problem with starting any manufacturing company is all of the startup costs and initial tooling needed to bring the price point to a competitive level. This is where you come in. Now that we have made this pedalboard known to the public, it has become very apparent to us of the demand for such a product. We owe it to you and the rest of the world to bring this to a full manufacturing level. Thank you for your support!
