Available this spring, D’Addario is proud to introduce XPND, a game-changing telescoping pedalboard.
With its patented telescoping technology, XPND lets you instantly change the size of your board and the number of pedals – forever expanding your sonic potential and creating a board that continually adapts to your needs. XPND features aircraft-quality rails that easily adjust in and out, a unique cable management system. XPND is also fitted with hook and loop fastener tape, keeping everything neat while making swapping pedals super easy.
Available in one or two-row configurations, dealers and distributors will love the fact that these two models will cover the size capabilities of more than a dozen comparable products. Boards will also come unassembled for shipping efficiency, taking up less space—all in a visually distinctive package that can be transformed into a striking visual at the point-of-purchase.
The XPND product line will also include an optional Pedal Riser, allowing the player to elevate individual pedals that may be hard to access, and premium quality, optional Backline XPND Pedalboard Transporter bags for both models. The transporter bag will adapt quickly to any sized pedalboard, with customizable partitions that easily adjust to create a uniquely snug and secure fit.
“This has been one of the most challenging and rewarding innovation projects our team has ever completed,” states Jim D’Addario, Chief Innovation Officer. “This is truly a game-changer.”
