I’m always down for any pedalboard innovation. While Temple Pedalboards aren’t a face-melting brain fuck of originality, they have their own approach to pedal mounting that could prove useful depending on your setup. Temple doesn’t seem to have a custom case to transport the boards though, so that’s a strike against them.

Browsing their site after the fact though, I did take notice of their USB Power unit, which is an adapter to send up to 2.5A of juice to your smartphone or tablet from your pedalboard’s power supply. That could be pretty useful for those of you who integrate iPads into your live setup, which is becoming increasingly common.
