    Does anyone know where I can get some blank (no holes drilled) boss enclosures?
     
  2. I've never seen any smaller builders use them, I've always assumed they are made for Boss/digitech more or less exclusively.

    Yeah, nobody has the nifty little hinged pedal I want.

    I don't want to have to scavange from old pedals and deal with the pre drilled holes.

    I'm also after the awesome battery access boss pedals afford.
    Edit: now I see the small bear box has a battery access. This is promising.

    Thanks for the Small Bear link.

    I think you'll find that the boss and digitech designs are probably patented - so it's not likely you'll find a third party blank.

    You could possibly look for and old beaten up model in a pawn shop, gut it, paint it, and use that. Ebay, sometimes throws up some cheap non-working pedals that might make a good doner.

    Wow, that looks the identical to the Chord brand of pedals.... that's why they're so cheap!
