Grid 1 Launches the Pedal Jeanie Jr. Rechargeable Battery-Powered Pedalboard with a Smaller Footprint

July 6, 2011
<img src="/Portals/0/PJJr1.jpg" alt="img" style="float: left; margin-right: 9px; margin-bottom: 9px;" />Earlier this year, Grid 1 launched a battery-powered&nbsp;pedalboard called the Pedal Jeanie at the 2011 winter NAMM show. Since&nbsp;then the company has been busy keeping up with demand. &ldquo;We did not expect&nbsp;our sales to ramp up so quickly&rdquo;, commented Grid 1&rsquo;s President Kevin Frazier.&nbsp;&ldquo;We make all our battery-powered audio products here in Northern California, so it&nbsp;does not take long to produce more units. We decided to fast track the&nbsp;production of the half- size Pedal Jeanie Jr, as many dealers were asking for a<br /> smaller board size. The Pedal Jeanie and the Pedal Jeanie Jr&nbsp;are in stock and shipping to dealers now across the US and Mexico&rdquo;.<br /> <br /> The Pedal Jeanie Jr is ultra quiet and not susceptible to AC line noise.&nbsp;It comes equipped with a battery level LED located on top of the&nbsp;chassis. The LED glows green to show full battery status, then glows&nbsp;orange to show low battery, and finally will glow red to alert the user&nbsp;to charge the pedalboard. It can be charged while it is in use, and offers universal power so the Pedal Jeanie Jr&nbsp;can be charged anywhere in the world! An optional car charger is also&nbsp;available.<br /> <br /> The Pedal Jeanie Jr supports six to eight effect pedals. It has the&nbsp;same power and DC connectivity as the standard Pedal Jeanie. The unique patent-pending matrix&nbsp;design offers a multitude of layout and configuration options.<br /> <br /> The Pedal Jeanie Jr pedalboard measures 23&rdquo; x 11&rdquo; x 4&rdquo;, and is constructed of&nbsp;heavy duty 16 gauge steel. Under the chassis there are 10 built-in&nbsp;DC barrel connections that make it easy to add&nbsp;pedals and keep the top of the pedalboard clutter free. Next to every pedal connection is an&nbsp;LED fault indicator light to make it a snap to find a shorted pedal or trace a potential hook-up&nbsp;problem. <br /> <br /> The wedge shaped design and open&nbsp;bottom keep the weight to a minimum and offer&nbsp;many set-up possibilities. A stainless steel handle&nbsp;is provided for easy transport. All DC power&nbsp;cables, tie wraps, batteries, and battery charger&nbsp;are included. Suggested retail is $299.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> For more information about Grid 1 please visit <a href="http://www.grid1.com/" target="_blank"><strong>www.grid1.com</strong></a> or call 800-928-7144.
