The low-profile OpenWing 13 pedalboard: A fine-tuned balance of light-weight portability and roadworthy durability. The simple design achieves seamless integration of pedals, patchbays, and power supplies with a minimalist aesthetic.
US Patent No. D792503
All Helweg Design pedalboards and cases are constructed by owner Michael Helweg in our shop in Lawrence, KS. Each Helweg pedalboard and case is hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail.
Helweg pedalboards and cases include a 3-year limited warranty.
The pedalboard's side wings and back brace form a protective frame while adding lightweight rigidity. The slotted wings act as handles and give easy access to integrated patchbay connections.
The pedalboard forms the back of the case, which fully covers the board sides.
At Helweg Design, we source the finest materials available.
We collaborate with other small US businesses whenever possible. Our exclusive side wings, mounting brackets, and risers are among many parts manufactured and finished in Kansas City.
