    Like this one here: http://www.pedalpad.com/Pedal-Pad-Pedal-Boards-Standard.htm#axs-xl

    This is their larger version, internally it measures 36" x 13" which is larger in terms of width than a PTPro, but its depth is less. I like the idea of putting multiple power supplies underneath. Can you with the PTPro or PT2 put 2 power supplies underneath? I know it comes with mounting brackets for one, but with the PT Pro, it seems like you might need two of them. I use a BBE Supa Charger and DC Brick currently.

    Anyway, I don't gig out at the moment, so I just want something that is flexible for home use, but strong enough and versatile enough if/when I do gig out. I was thinking of going with 2 board (I have 2 home made at the moment) but I don't like it. I prefer one board.

    Just curious as I seldom see anyone using these boards, it seems most people are using the Pedaltrain, which are nice, and I may end up getting, just looking at options.

    I'm using the Pedal Pad - although I always forget which model designation it is. Anyway, the power supply is well-made and reliable and the tiered set-up works really well for me.

    It's in a state of disarray at the moment, but here it is:

    Even better, I bought it on eBay for $30! One of my better scores!

    That is a great score. I never see them used for sale. The AXS models don't have the power supply included like you have, and the have a flat surface, not those shelves like you have. Both are pretty cool. I just rarely see anyone using them here, and they seem really decent, prices aren't bad at all. Seems pedaltrain has the market both here and ove at HC.

    I use the basic 26" wide AXS, not the oversize one or powered one. I have a PP2 and several varying voltage wall warts on a power strip, all underneath the top. It works great, have a Picwah, Zendrive, OCD, SmallFry, Ltd, Tone press, trem, RCboost, and a Axess MFC5 midi pedal all on the mounting surface. Works great, indestructable.

    I've got the smaller AXS, wanting to upgrade to the larger so i can have my amp's footswitch on it too. Hiding a few goodies underneath, including my power supply.
