    Have any other bass owners put velcro on the bottom of their SansAmp Bass DI pedals? If so did you remove the rubber feet or leave them on? I am not sure if the velcro would stick without the feet since the battery cover sticks out. Let me know how it worked for you.

    Not really specific to a SansAmp, but I'll attempt to leave the feet on and see how it works. If the pedal doesn't stay put the feet come off.

    I'm pretty sure the feet on my VT Bass DI are still on it.

    I rip the rubber legs off of everything and use 3M DualLock to secure them on my pedal board...when necessary. The 3M stuff has a fairly high profile, unlike Velcro, and may "grab" with the bumpers in place.

    Velcro on the bottom. Rubber feet left in place.

    I rip ALL of the rubber feet off and Velcro the bottoms.
     
  6. Sometimes velcro will stick to the rubber feet. It just depends on what kind of rubber they used. That is, obviously, the easiest solution when it works.

    On my sansamp I took the feet and the plastic battery compartment over off.

    I use a small pedal board; I drill holes on both sides of each pedal and use a long, big-ass cable tie to go through the board and around the pedal to secure it. NEVER AGAIN will they move!!!!

    What did you cover the battery with? I keep a battery in mine for a backup if the power unit goes out.

    I want to do that but I switch out my wireless unit for different gigs and add pedals for other groups.

    I just placed the Velcro over the battery hole. I don't use a battery, I only use AC power via my one spot and daisy chain.

    Removed the rubber and the battery casing. Added extra glue to the bottom and stuck it in with the velcro for firm hold.

    I took the rubber feet off of mine. I have the BDDI velcro'd inside our rack box for PA because I have my wireless and rack tuner in that box and I run ampless. I also just power the BDDI with phantom power. That's a really handy extra in my book. One less adapter to deal with.

    +1 to this. I also removed the feet and battery cover then covered the battery hole with Velcro. The cover and feet went into the neat sansamp tin for safekeeping. I also power everything with a one spot and daisy chain cable.
