    I was thinking... Im gonna use a JoYo American Sound, always on, and i want to use a pedaltrain Jr (all the extra space i can get is awesome) so why not mount it to the bottom? Has anyone done this? It seems like it would be pretty easy

    I used industrial strength Velcro from Walmart to mount a Voodoo Labs 4x4 under my pedaltrain 1. If you are worried that Velcro wouldn't hold, use the 3m dual lock - don't use too much though as it will be near impossible to pull apart.

    Sounds like a good idea, but won’t you miss tweaking it? I use the Blonde and tweak it every single gig . . .

    +1. I hear the Character series has a very high tweakability factor. In fact, the controls are supposedly very, very sensitive.

    Having a similar unit underneath a board may save you some space, but it could surely bring you loads of agony in return, when you're on your knees at the gig, turning the board over to administer minuscule tweaks all the time.

    I wouldn't do such a thing.

    I wouldn't do it either. You're going to need to tweak it often depending on where you're playing.

    Even if you're always at the same gig, it just helps that there's some fiddling of knobs

    I'd consider it. You can lift up the board, tweak for the venue, then set it down and play. I'd probably use zip ties to hold it on.
