Pedal Mounting Risers now patented

Our pedal mounting risers—one of our top sellers—have been granted a US patent for their original design. This, in addition to the OpenWing Pedalboard and Signature Case, makes a solid trifecta of Helweg Design patents. 

For small businesses like ours, patents are not easy (or cheap) to come by. We'd like to give a big Thank You to everyone who has supported our efforts to get these great pedalboard accessories on the market. It's you guys who make all this possible and we truly appreciate you!
