  • OpenWing Series Pedalboards

    - U.S. Patent No. D792503 -





    Profile






    Open = Access

    • Exposed patch cables are shorter than cables run through slots, reducing tone loss, weight, and cost.
    • Components are instantly accessible, expediting troubleshooting, maintenance, and alterations. Turning the loaded board upside down is never required.
    • OpenWing pedalboards retain the ability of our previous wedge boards to integrate patchbays and other components. The wing slots provide access to a multitude of replaceable units—never locking in one custom configuration for the life of the pedalboard.
    • Power components are isolated in the left corner, not running below effect pedals. This greatly reduces the potential for AC noise to infect signal purity.

     



    Lightweight Durability

    • OpenWing pedalboards are over 30% lighter weight than our former wood-framed angled pedalboards.
    • The back brace and side wings form a self-squaring structure that ensures a straight, rigid board deck.
    • Decks are constructed with premium 1/2" 9-ply Baltic birch.
    • The textured ABS deck surface will greatly outlast a Velcro top, yet stick-on strips adhere nicely when Velcro-mounting is desired. 
    • Industrial woven vinyl or faux leather upholstery is applied in a single seamless sheet. Edges are fully protected beneath the metal wings.
    • Reinforced thermoplastic rubber feet, manufactured in San Diego, CA.
    • Logo plates are made locally and inset to avoid damage. 
    • 1/8" aluminum wings are manufactured and coated in the Kansas City area.


  • Helweg Signature Pedalboard Case

    - U.S. Patent No. D802923 -

    Our original 2010 case blended innovative functionality with classic amplifier style and materials. Our redesigned Helweg Signature Case retains this functionality while upgrading to modern materials and time-tested luggage construction. The result is a slimmer, lighter weight, and higher quality case that brings modern durability to a timeless aesthetic.

    The Helweg Signature Case is fine-tuned for the local troubadour whose engagements include downtown-venue and bar gigging and/or serving on the church worship team. The Signature Case, available for small to medium pedalboards, can be carried like a large briefcase.


    Lightweight Durability

    • Durable thermoformed ABS shell structure with strategic wood bracing
    • 30% lighter weight than an all-plywood alternative
    • Industrial woven vinyl or faux leather covering

    Premium Full-Grain Leather

    Our handle consists of a heavy buck strap wrapped around a chunky, padded underside for unrivaled comfort. Dual-riveted ends and industrial stitching round out the robust design. Made by Anthology Gear Wear.
