    I like them on the side because it lets me put another pedal directly above that one. And it keeps me from putting the two footswitches for adjacent pedals too close together, which has been a problem for me in the past.

    But that would mess up my symmetry!

    The much easier solution would be for a major corporation to change their manufacturing procedures.

    Catalinbread and Bearfoot could do this too. Or at least, it would be appreciated if possible.

    Dear MXR,

    I really like the jacks on the side. Please disregard the OP and keep the jacks where they are.

    Thanks,
    John

    PS: sorry OP.

    I hate jacks on three sides of a pedal. Two sides max, ideally one.

    (And yes, I have a lot of pedals with jacks on three sides. It doesn't mean I have to like it.)

    I'm with you OP.

    The side jack on the Ditto annoys me.

    I like it on the side because it's less prone to getting accidentally pulled out, with it kind of hidden and tucked behind the cable plugs.

    How do you know it's not because of the Timmy's side jacks?

    Like input on the right & output on the left, maybe it could be an industry standard to put the jacks all in the same place.

    so you want mxr a massive company to change just for your pedal board :spit yeh thats obviously the easiest option....

    why dont you just ask someone like molten voltage to mod it. or a local pedal guy to mod it and drill the top?
