Hi JMJ, I have a couple pro gigs I got offered coming up with a new artist, and well, I haven't played out much lately, and my touring experience is limited to vans and the DIY world This will be a pro level deal with a guitar tech, backline, etc. My question is, I only need 2-3 stomps for this thing--a Boss tuner, some kind of distortion, and maybe a chorus or octave at most. Is it totally "un-pro" to have these things loose? Do I need to set up a little board to house them, even if I end up with just a tuner and one stomp, or is it OK to do what I'm used to and just plop 'em down? I recall reading your gear for the Dixie Chicks shows, and you only used a couple things I think. What do you do in a case like that? Thanks!
