    Well, it took over several weeks and a a bunch of phone calls to UPS and to RockOn but I finally got the thing. Not sure why it got so screwed up. Apparently, a combination of hurricanes and computer viruses at RockOn and then UPS ineptitude but anyway it's here.

    Looks great. Worth the wait. Hopefully the improve their order entry system because the product is a good one at a fair price.

    Here's mine - if you bought the smallest model from Reverend and want to put 6-8 smaller sized pedals, the George L's are just about the smallest profile connectors I've found. It REALLY helps if some of the pedals' jacks are offset (like on my Blue Boy). I still have room for one more on mine...

    lava cables. Set 'em and forget 'em. Mark uses top of the line quality products in his cables and I'm extremely happy with 'em

    What pedals are you using with your board?

    In the interest of saving space, I use George L's on my pedal board.

    Teese pic wah,
    RC or AC Booster,
    Fulltone FD II,
    Demeter trem,
    DLS chorus/vib,
    Hermida Zendrive,
    Future: Mojovibe (On Order, assuming Bob survives Hurricane Wilma)

    Not sure if it'll all fit though. May have to choose between mojovibe and dls chorus.

    How do you guys mount your heavier pedals like the wah pedals? Screws through the board into the pedal?

    I haven't felt the need to screw the wah down, the velcro they include is pretty strong stuff. I treat my gear pretty gently though, might be appropriate if you tend to toss stuff in your trunk.

    I don't toss stuff around but I don't want the wah coming loose and pulling all the cables off when carrying it by the handles. I guess I'll try it without the screws first.

    thx

    My wah comes and goes off of my board so I just took the feet off and put a strip of velcro down the entire bottom. It stays on the board just fine.

    Why wouldn't you just flip your existing plate over ?

    With the existing plate, the screw heads stuck out so that it wasn't flush with the board. Until I got th emounting plate I was never sure if my wah would stay put...

    That's what I did. The velcro patch on the board is wider than the pedal, so the screws don't hit anything hard to make it want to lift or not seat securely - and I used abot 2x the amount of velcro than what's pictured on that plate adapter. I can actually lift my whole board off the ground grasping the wah by itself...

    I am loving my RockOn PedalMax that I got thru Reverend.

    "How do you guys mount your heavier pedals like the wah pedals? Screws through the board into the pedal?"

    J, on my RMC, I flipped the bottom plate over (to preserve that great picture of Geoffrey Teese!) and put a long strip of high-grade velcro on. I went to the hardware store and got some flat-head screws to replace the rubber feet. Even though the screws stick out a tiny bit, the velcro still holds the wah great- you have to use both hands to rip it off!

    Enjoy the board!

    I use bike chain links on my RMC2. It works well, as long as you have a pedalboard with either thick enough wood, or enough clearance between the outer case and the deck wood, to accomodate the screws.
