    I've reached to point where my crap no longer all fits in my backpack and need to make a permanent home for my gear.

    I've looked at the Pedaltrain Mini and I think I could get everything on there... barely, it'd be kinda cramped.

    any advice?


    also, where do you guys get velcro in quantity?


    here's what's going on the board:

    Crybaby
    3-button FS for Orange Thunderverb controls
    Orange FS-1 (for the AD30)
    LoopMaster ABY
    TCE HoF
    Carbon Copy
    TU-2

    that's really it. the HoF and CC are both in the AD30s chain, and not the TV50's. the Wah and Tuner are for both (duh).


    I'd like to eventually add a Line6 M5, and maybe the expression pedal that goes with it, but otherwise, not really feeling like I need much else.


    thanks guys, I'm still a total noob.

    Go to the Pedalboard Planner website to see if it fits. I don't know if they have footswitch sizes though.

    If you buy a Pedaltrain, it comes with an okay quality velcro.

    I would get a Pedaltrain 2 and call it a day. It's a pretty common choice for medium size boards. It'll leave you some room to grow as well.

    You can get industrial strength Velcro in a big roll at most hardware stores.
