    I got a Pedal Power AC a while ago, to power my FX-1, but until today, I didn't have time to reorganise the board. Here's the new layout.

    I used an axle grinder and a Dremel tool to chop a few more bits outs of the underside of my Pedaltrain Pro. It still feels very strong - the strength hasn't been significantly compromised.

    The pictures show the Pedal Power AC underneath the Pedaltrain Pro. Its auxiliary output feeds a Pedal Power 2, which powers all the other pedals on the board.

    I hadn't realised until today that I could get the BS-2 underneath the Pedaltrain, which is convenient, because with it up top, it was difficult to fit everything else on.

    Does the BS2 go at the beginning or the end of your chain? Also, why do you use a buffer when you only have three pedals?

    How do you know that RC is a buffer?

    Is it the case that you need to remove some the Pedaltrain to fit the PP2 underneath? I'd love to get my PP2 off of the top of the board.

    Huh? The BS2 is the buffer. The only pedals he appears to be using are the was, tuner, and Xotic boost. Im assuming the volume is done through the MIDI part of his board.

    Hi tfire,

    Looks good - nice job! I like the Buffer mounted underneath as well. I also just went through a bunch of Dremal wheels putting a Voodoo Labs Power Supply under my Pedaltrain Pro :D

    BillyK,

    The Pedal Power will fit under the PT Pro model quite nicely - here is a link that gives step by step instrunctions along with some helpful photo's as well...

    The chain is:

    Guitar > BS2 > Wah > RC Booster > Rack

    All the other pedals are on a rack shelf, controlled by a Switchblade.

    The BS2 keeps the tone intact on a long cable run from floor board to rack.

    Hmm, I have 14 pedals and might add another and I could put an axess under my PT Pro like yours. Would you reccomend the BS2?

    Certainly would.

    Having the Iso'd Out there so that I can run to a second amp is handy too.

    Does cutting out chunks like this compromise the strength of the board at all? I want to do this mod as well by I'm worried that it will significantly weaken the board.

    You'll do no significant damage. It's still extremely strong.
