The origin of PEDALBOOTS® is in Linz (Upper Austria). The idea of the inventor and CEO Peter Vollath was to create a professional alternative to anchor floor effect equipment, without the use of glue or tape and without damage during the mounting as well as protecting the equipment during transportation. Due to the great demand through hard-working musicians, this idea was developed. In the mean time PEDALBOOTS® are available for just about all floor effect equipment.
It soon turned out that keyboarders and drummers as well as percussionists and cellists were having problems on the stage as well as in studio. The constant sliding of the sustain-Pedals under the keyboard and the sliding around to the drum sets, the percussion instruments or cellos while playing was a much talked about subject in the music scenes. With the development of the PIANOBOOTS, DRUMBOOTS and CELLOBOOTS, a solution to this problem was found that until then could only be solved with the use of Gaffa-Tape, heavy rugs or by damaging the floors.
By now PEDALBOOTS® are known to well-known professionals in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Germany among others and are used daily as well as „on-the-road“.
A simple model out of modelling clay is used as template for the production of the prototypes. The version of PEDALBOOTS® produced today was first modelled in this way, and was introduced to the world for the first time in 2010 at the Frankfurt Music Fair.
