Tough Challenges Test Creativity
SKB has been designing innovative pedalboards for guitar enthusiasts for more than 15 years. To keep up with technology and the needs of guitarists of all genres, SKB came to Nectar to develop the world’s first AC/DC pedalboard with a built-in combo amp featuring a 6” Eminence speaker. A fully powered, fully portable pedalboard that would accommodate up to eight 9-volt DC pedals.
Nectar’s Success: Experience-/Process-based Solutions
- Nectar provided all the engineering development with a highly stylized and accessible design ready for production.
- Nectar developed the Footnote’s design utilizing research driven conceptual imagery and full form functionality.
Positive Results Exceed Expectations
The guitar pedalboard category was becoming cluttered. Some designs offered superior protection, while others offered advantageous price positions, and yet others offered better power supply capabilities. Listening to the market, receiving feedback on the products development during the design phase, the SKB/Nectar team captured all the critical elements in this one high performance pedalboard. It can be taken anywhere: on stage, on the street corner, in the garage, or with headphones plugged in for a private session.
