Had a guitar pedalboard custom built for me. 18"x22". Not set for any touring, so a hardshell case would be overkill for my tri-state area car and subway needs. But I do want stability and protection. The board fits into this 1822 just right and, with a small towel as filler for one spot (height), the entire unit is well protected .Padding is great and the frame is rigid but still pliable. It's an excellent soft shell case option.
