    Looking for cool ideas. I've got two 30mm ammo cans I'm thinking of rigging for a cool portable pedal board sort of thing. Post pics :)

    First attempt - didn't like exposed wires / plugs. Drawbacks - no way to swap pedals. 2nd Gen in design, will have plates to fit pedals. A bit more swap friendly.

    A friend wants to build a attenuator with an ammo can - I think hot rod louvers would be cool in more ways than one.

    The Blue has so many uses. I use it for OD jazz or to tweak the Heavy and now a EQD Palisades - the real push behind the board redesign.

    That's a pretty cool concept, Russ. Looks nice and clean but like you said, a pretty absolute commitment to the pedals/order.

    Nice idea, kinda half way between a traditional pedalboard and a Cornish system design

    Wish I had a picture.. I had a ply plank with a large-hoop rug glued to it, handles on each side, and little grippy feet. Looked awesome! But I needed a case... The rug worked like the hoop side of Velcro so could just stick stuff all over it. My pedal train was just convenient... But absolutely not as cool.

    My challenges were:

    • Dual boards to straddle the leg of a mic stand in the middle
    • Minimize the overall depth to fit more easily on small stages
    • Integrated cases -- just pop off the lid and go
    • Compact and rugged for easy transit
    • Integrate two TBP loopers (VooDoo Lab Pedal Switcher x2) in minimal space
    • Hide two Ciokolate power supplies
    The cases are Pedal Pad AXS Road Buddys, but everything inside is totally custom.

    I dig. I also dig what I'm guessing is a Les Paul goldtop upper left :)

    Thanks! Actually it's a LP Deluxe Hall of Fame Edition with gold all over ... front, back, and neck. I think it was meant to be a collector's item that never really appreciated ... so I got it through GC from a collector that never played it in like 10 years. I've since put some miles on it, and potted the mini buckers to stop the squealing. It's really heavy, but sounds and plays great.

    Not to hijack this thread. sorry.
