    I am building a bypass looper but need to find an enclosure. I have checked the Hammond site but they have nothing that meets my needs. I am looking for something that would accommodate 2 rows of 6 to 8 switches. I want a slanted or sloped front as well. I am also not against finding a use foot switch or floor board of some kind and gutting it for my needs. Any idea where I might be able to find such a thing? I hope that this makes sense!

    Thanks!

    That is where I am getting my info for the build. I just need an enclosure, I want it bigger then the one shown, and I am not handy at sheet metal work.

    I have been to the pedalpartsplus website and could use them if i can't find what I am looking for. Their enclosures are too small, only allowing for 5 loops total.

    I don't know, man. I think you could fit 6 loops in 10 inches. It may be tighter, but you can do it.

    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]The Keyboarder from action-electronics.com might do the trick. Would the metal be thick enough as it lists it as: "Base metal is .080 aluminum, Cover metal is .050 aluminum"? I want something that is going to be durable and stand up to some stomping!

    Loop-Master thanks! I couldn't tell if that was this metal or paper thin, bend with your hand kinda stuff. Seems like a small number, but I know nothing about aluminum!
