    Ok, you can't really see it, but there is a PedalTrain pedal board under there. I got sick of my huge ass pedalboard (3'x4') and sold it. So here is the first step in a more modular apoach. Dig it?

    (I will be cabling it all up with George L's later on.)

    yeah, the pedaltrain is great. I too downsized recently, from the powered MPS pedalpad.

    The pedaltrain is slightly too small for me, so I'm also trying out the Furman SPB-8 powered pedalboard which is only slightly bigger but now I don't need to use pedalboard space with power supply.

    I've discovered the PedalTrain is the perfect size, provided I don't want to put it back in the case. I wasn't about the compromise pedal arrangement just to fit them in the case as is, so I have to un-velcro the wah when I am putting it back in the case. Always a compromise with pedals - but ultimately it's worth it.

    So why the urge to take the EBS, Mammoth, and MicroSynth out of the rack? Have you considered velcroing the Pedal Power to the bottom of the board, or is there not enough room under there?

    He sells cabling kits, basically lengths of wire which you cut to the length you need plus plugs you put the wire into.

    It's great for pedalboards, where you can need lots of differing length cables to get everything connected together.

    I picked up a Pedal Train a couple of months ago. Great buy. The case that it comes in is quite nice. I appreciate the extra room in it for my cables and extension cord.

    Later, Tom.

    Because that rack weighs around 200 lbs. This is a little more mobile.
