    So I built my own pedal board. I didn't want to pay a lot of money, so my dad gave me an old briefcase of his. It's made out of EEL-SKIN! It's really cool. The whole bottom is soft velcro, and then I put small pieces of hard velcro on my pedals and put that on. I velcroed the power strip to the top of it. I have the power sources stuck on the power strip. The only problem is closing it, it doesn't just close without having to unplug anything like I wanted to. Also, it's kinda hard bypassing my BP-200 (any ideas?)

    Crappy Pics!

    Take everything out of the bottom, and put a piece of wood in there. Angle it towards you, and put the power supplies underneath.

    Use 90 degree jacks instead of the barrel type.

    my Punch Factory has a 90 degree one, but I dont' want to shell out more money for my BP-200.

    Anyone have any suggestions for bypassing my BP? It's kinda hard.

    The loop box would help me bypass my BP-200?

    That's what it's for. Put the BP200 in the loop and voila, bypass switch.

    I'm still confused, what do I do with a looper? Program one effect in it or what?

    Just put the BP200 in the loop and use the switch to bypass it.

    The loooper has an in, where you plug your bass into, and an out that leads to your amp. When the looper is disengaged, that is how your signal flows.

    When you hit the switch, the signals goes out the hole with the triangle, goes into your effect pedal, and then goes back into the other hole with the triangle, and then that signal goes out the out jack.

    +1 on the Loooper.
     
  12. that back on the briefcase needs to lie down, during a gig it just seems like it'll close up on you while playing and you'll have to screw around with it. unscrew those joints from teh case and then it's pretty failsafe

    Hey thanks all for your looping help! I'll just find a link where I can build one (or buy a cheap one.)

    About the case standing up: the joints lock so i'm not too worried about it falling.
