As one of the most frequently used pedalboards on the market, the BCB-60 Deluxe from Boss stands out above the rest with high versatility and the ability to store just about any type of guitar pedals, as well as the fact that it includes pretty much all the necessary accompanying gear in the listed price.
From design, through hardware and sturdiness, all the way to pricing, the manufacturer hit the sweet spot with this item, and we very much understand the popularity of this model. We took it out for a spin, you can check out our thoughts in the review below. Let’s go!
Yes, that’s a plastic body (molded resin to be precise), but that really shouldn’t dishearten you. While we agree that plastics can’t beat metal (and metal looks cooler, too), this item’s casing is still perfectly capable of taking on any amount of punches during transport and keep the interior safe, and that’s what matters the most.
On the inside, we are looking at a signature Boss padded interior that you can customize to fit just about any pedal you can imagine, going from compact micro pedals all to way to a massive twin pedal. We like this freedom to shape up the inside of your pedalboard and make any device fit, it gives a felling of a customized board and just takes the level of practicality through the roof.
On the aesthetic side, we have to say that the BCB-60 can hardly match the charm of its metal peers, but it’s still solid enough to get a pass. And considering the hardware selection we’re about to dive into, we believe you won’t care too much about the looks.
This is where the Boss fella really shines and secures a position of one of the leading pedalboards and an item we thoroughly recommend. In the electronic segment, the product features an onboard adaptor capable of powering up to 7 devices at the same time. The outputs, returns and power supplies are well sorted out with quality wiring, so no complaints there.
And now let us focus on one of the absolute strongest points of this dude – the included cables and extra equipment. With most boards, you should consider yourself lucky if you land an adapter that’s included in the price, but in this case not only will you get the power supply, but also ALL the necessary cables.
Specifically, the price covers three pre-cut insert cables, a single spare insert cable, five short L-L cables, three long L-L cables, as well as an 8-pin parallel DC cord and a user manual on how to get everything up and running.
In total, we really can’t put in any complaints after the price tag is taken into consideration. For under $200, you will get all the necessary equipment to connect your pedals into a single board, with high-quality wiring, versatile interior and a sturdy casing.
The looks aren’t the product’s strongest side, but only because plastics can’t beat metal. Apart from that, the aesthetic side is just fine. We thoroughly recommend taking this fella out for a spin, there’s a good chance you’ll love it!
