    The other thread has passed 1000 posts, and I was waiting for a Part 2 before posting the finished pics of my modded PT-Mini.

    The red & green footswitches are the 3 Aux switches for the timefactor. I was unable to find an enclosure to put all 3 in front of the TimeFactor. I wanted to find something like a 1590A enclosure but longer. However, I am actually happier with the result of separating out one button. I use the green one as tap tempo and it falls in a more natural spot for me on the right side of the board.

    Power supply is a VL ISO5. The extra power connector seen here is because I've been swapping the DLS out with a Lovepedal Eternity Burst. DLS & FD2 are getting 18V.

    The other mod is the cutout for access to the TimeFactor's outputs.

    And here's the full setup with expression pedal for TimeFactor plus the Eternity.

    I am waiting for a new "lipless" model; ordered one from a dealer directed by PT, but PT shipped an old style model.

    I like it! I actually picked this pedal up off a TGP'er so really my goal was to get the Morning Glory and the Charlie Brown was a bonus. I prefer the MG to the CB.

    I am using it with a 2005 FMT Korean HH configured Fender Telecaster w/ dimarzio pickups through an Egnater Tweaker (settings are Vint-AC-Clean-Bright-Deep) and it sounds great, like a Marshall Driving a Vox or Orange Cabinet and breaking up.

    Thinking about getting one?

    Yeah, me too. It's a shame our Dutch dealer has a delay going and they'll come in somewhere around January ...

    Here's my Mini as of today. Need to get the Malekko 616 fixed. It be fried, electron-wise. Slotted my VMSD in there for a gig last night. Space on left was for a Jam Man (until stupid me understood that it uses AC current and thus cannot run off a 1-Spot). Sheesh.

    Using 3M Dual-Lock instead of velcro and lemme tell ya, even for big pedals, you only need two little patches of the stuff underneath. Otherwise, you're gonna have to pull like a bear to unlatch the pedals.

    Also, I"ve seen a few people using what looks like the rubber feet from a walker or cane over the stock feet on these (or in lieu?) Do you just drill through the rivets holding the stock feet on? And where do you get the walker feet (and don't that sound silly; "walker feet?")

    Sorry to nudge the thread without contributing a picture of my own but I'm looking for some inspiration and I'd love to see more boards posted :) (Yeah I've gone through all of the old thread!). Maybe by this time next year I'll have a Mini worth posting with... Maybe :D

    Edit: I'll be using a Diago PSU on my mini when I get around to grabbing one... They offer 3000 mA and you can buy isolaters for the daisy chain if really needed but I was talking to one of the designers @ Diago and it said they're very rarely needed nowadays. Was thinking about a pretty moderate setup like...

    Guitar (USA Fender Tele 2005)> PolyTune (Prefer over TT for playing out, will be buying a TT in the future though) > Mad Prof Comp > Overdrive (Really have no idea yet... I love my amps overdrive I just find myself needing more) > EQD Hoof > Some modulation, perhaps a Trem or Phaser > Small analog/tape delay > Amp (Laney Lionheart)

    I recently downsized & kicked off everything I wasn't using much. I love the simplicity. It lets me focus a lot more on my fingers and less on my feet.
    Still gotta do the ISO mod, but it works fine right now to just stack the tuner on top.

    Ah! Thanks for this! It reminds me that I might be able to put my Pitchblack on my Burkey Flatliner SIX as well. (not sure if I need to do that, but it's good to see this, since you sometimes forget the obvious)

    It's a good quick fix, and still fits in the bag.
