    All I can say is WOW! A while back, I asked all of y'all what a good pedalboard would be for me. After getting tons of good suggestions, I settled on a Trailertrash pedalboard. MAN....am I glad I did. The construction on this thing is unbelievable. It is quite as a mouse. NO increased hum. The layout is impeccable. I COULD NOT be happier.
    James "Rooster" Olsen at Trailertrash is such a pleasure to work with. This guy can do anything.
    Thanks so much James!:dude Here's a couple of pictures.....

    Looks great! On a side note, can you tell me about the TC chorus? Have you ever been able to compare it to a Choralflange? I had a Choralflange but am considering getting a TC one now to try. Thanks!

    Do you have to pay extra for color matching cables? I mean matching each individual pedal...I saw one done that way by them and it looked nice.

    In a word-amazing. I cannot wait to finish my TT Board up. As soon as a few more pedals arrive-they will all be on their way to Rooster finally. PM sent but tell us about the size and also the finish-looks like hand tooled leather?

    That looks great. I really like the western tooled leather look. What do they use for power?

    The plug ins on the side are very cool too!:BEER

    2 questions, how are the pedals mounted to the board?

    How is the powersupply mounted to the bottom. I imagine that answer #1 is velcro....

    beautiful just beautiful

    Looks absolutely perfect. The only reason I hesitate to do that is that I change my pedal config a lot.

    The good news is that it appears there is room for an entirely new row of pedals.

    very nice. I wired up my Trailer Trash board and it was a real bitch to do. I would probably let James do it, rather than mess with it myself in the future. I may have my top replaced with a glow top in a few months or so. I'm going to plan a trip to Nashville next time I go see my sister in law and I'll be bringing my board with me for James to work his magic on.

    I really dig these boards.

    Does anyone know where I can get a recessed AC plug like this?

    Thanks! :BEER

    I'll bet you have luck at mouser or digi-key. I built a pedalboard out of diamondplate 4 years ago and used one of these, and I think I found it locally.

    Nice one Charles...the fine Corinthian Tooled Leather probably matches one of your past & present NAYLORS!:dude
