Furman SPB-8C stereo pedal board

Often imitated, the original Furman SPB-8 was the first stereo pedal board on the market. Now Furman is proud to offer its successor, the SPB-8C. Featuring a new hardshell case, more outlets, improved jacks, and a streamlined look, the SPB-8C improves on the innovative design that made the original pedal board so popular.

Pedal Board
The SPB-8C pedal board features a heavy duty metal construction that will handle the most forceful stomps you can offer, as well as stand up to the rigors of the road.

At the heart of the SPB-8C pedal board is a light yet rugged polycarbonate platform in combination with an extruded aluminum chassis and an ample 13.75” x 26.75” Velcro™ sheet. This durable construction ensures secure, non-slip performance of your effects boxes and pedals.

The SPB-C’s stereo patch bay contains eight 1/4” switching phone jacks featuring sturdy metal bushings, connected in two stereo loops. This allows a single guitar or instrument input to feed multiple mono and stereo effects boxes, send and return from remote effects, and feed up to two amplifiers simultaneously. From modest to highly complex patching demands, the SPB-8C allows nearly unlimited set-up flexibility.

Powering your pedals, amps and other gear, the SPB-8C offers two levels of surge and short circuit protection, as well as Furman's standard level of RFI/EMI filtering. Furman's SPB-8C is quiet, powering DC pedals without hum, due to the high quality toroid transformer employed. Each DC output is rated at 120 mA, as well as being individually protected against shorts, guaranteeing that if one pedal goes out, the rest will continue to function. Further, these DC outputs are individually isolated, eliminating noisy ground loops. The SPB-8C also includes four AC outlets, spaced widely enough to accommodate bulky 'wall wart' transformers.
