    2-inch pedal riser specifications
  • Each package includes a riser pair, wood screws, and hardware for directly attaching one effect pedal—no Velcro required. The versatile design accommodates a wide range of enclosure sizes. Two mini pedal enclosures of the same dimensions can often share a riser pair.

    Risers can also support a plywood panel to create a solid raised tier. A quality 3/8" (9 mm) thick plywood panel stays rigid without center support up to about 12" (30 cm) long. Add more risers to support longer panels.

    The 2" riser height allows clearance for a full-size pedal enclosure as well as many patchbays, DI boxes, buffers, and other devices not requiring foot access.
