i'm looking to make my own pedal board. i could buy one of those skb or furman ones for like $200, and it'd be a lot easier, but that wouldn't be any fun. any way, i was wondering what i might need, and figured somebody else has done this before, and had some tips. i want to be able to take it from gig to gig, and not have to spend 30 minutes getting everything plugged in. i usually say screw it, and dont use any of them away from home because i get frustrated, and play clean anyway. here's what i figure i need: -power strip (or two) -some sort of non-slip rubber pad for the bottom -patch cables -two inputs jacks (one out, one in) -by-pass switch (because i play clean 95% of the time, and dont want to lose tone all of the time) -i'm thinking about trying to find a suitcase or toolbox, etc. and altering it...that's just a guess though can anyone think of anything else? any help would be much appreciated. i may just end up forking over the cash for a real one.
