WalMart. Automotive department near the floor mats 'n stuff. It comes in a
3' x 6' piece rolled up in plastic for about $8. I've used used the 'real'
speaker carpet (it came in a 50' roll from a carpet and textile warehouse)
and this stuff is virtually identical; it's actually preferable because
velcro sticks to it better. You can get it in black, gray, blue or tan. Cut
it to size, then use spray adhesive and heavy duty staples to apply it.

At a hardware store.

It's easier to cover the pedalboard's surface with the same carpet you're
using on the case, then apply the 'hook' part of the velcro to your pedals.
They stick to the carpet just the same way as they'd stick to the 'loop'
part of the velcro.
