    looking for suggestions on how best to mount a boss se50 into the board. would rather not have to deal with a rack case for just the one piece...board is not a tiered setup yet, but i might try to build that in if necessary. any good ideas?

    also, im curious -- whats the best way to power a whole board for foreign voltage requirements -- change all the wall warts, or get a transformer at the power strip stage?

    thanks all...

    Just get a step-down transformer to provide 110 volts for your whole rig. Many times, when playing overseas the PA/backline company can often provide 110 volt outlets for you (if the tour is reasonably well arranged, that is).

    mount the 1/2 rack on the board and build a shelf over it so you can use the space.
