    .... for now at least. Seriously though, it's packed tight and I'm so happy! For anyone that cares, here's the order

    DOD bass compressor
    BOSS ODB-3
    Digitech Bass Synth Wah
    Ibanez Chorus
    DOD distortion
    Morley Wah
    DOD bass EQ
    Sansamp BDDI

    I guess it's time to get a new pedal board.

    Nice setup.

    My pedalboard got too packed so I've pulled off the
    EBS Multicomp (its for sale). The EBS actually did fit, but everything is velcro'd down and it was a royal pain to pull all the input cables to preserve the batteries.

    Here'w where I ended up in order:

    Radial Bassbone - loop to Dunlop Bass Wah-Wah
    Fodera 2000
    Boss Tu2
    Sansamp BDDI
    Visual Volume

    Nope! Not convinced :rollno:

    you realise that to avoid buying anything else you'll have to renavigate any journey you have to avoid music stores. Stop buying any thin on content high on ad bass mags (sorry that's all of them) and also probably have to stop visiting these pages. :confused:

    I thought I'd cured my GAS. 'Till I realised that I didn't have to have just one pedal board. :hyper:
    You do realise that you have no phase/flange or tremelo :eek: You also NEED a slow gear and you're limiting you're self to just 3 types of overdrive/distortion I give it less than a month before you're looking for something with a stronger envelope than the digitech synth wah too. :D

    I'll give you it's not a bad start you have there, though :p

    As a note, PedalTrain is coming out with a new pedal board that will be 32"x16" and come in an ATA approved flight case with recessed hardware, handles and wheels. I don't know what the street price will be though.

    It's true. I talked to the PedalTrain guys about this.

    It took me getting a TC G Force before I got over my pedal GAS. I had 22 VERY expensive pedals on my board, and I was showing no signs of stopping.

    And now, 8 months of not having all those pedals.... the GAS is starting to come back! Gah!

  12. If you get DC plugs (just the plugs, no cables) and plug in the pedals don't draw any power from the batteries. Should be easier than unplugging every cable, right?

    Straight from the manufacturer. In fact, they're coming out with two new models and the existing one is being phased out. (If you're interested in the existing model, let me know and I can try to find a local dealer for you.) The other new model is slightly smaller at 22" x 12.5"
