Wow! That is a great idea! I have a Nova Delay that really cant get enough mA from a PP2+ and I would like to do the same to power that guy.I think it's a great idea. I've got a Whammy that is eating up way too much space, and I only use it occasionally. Sure, I could just put it on the floor, but I have the transformer mounted underneath my PT-1, so I'd like the pedal to be 'attached' to the board when I am using it. That would make a lot of room for some more stomp-on goodies.
Speaking of which, here is a little 'accessorizing/modding' I did: Hid the power supply for the Whammy underneath. Bought some lamp cord and small ends to create a short cord. Drilled a hole for the cable to come through underneath. The cap is on to cover the convenience outlet normally, I just removed it to show the AC plug. I also added some wire clamps that snap shut. So I can keep the cabling neat and not dragging, and it eliminates having to cut ties every time I change something on the board.
I did the mic stand thing to solve a very specific issue I was having (stage space). It also takes a little less time to set up than a regular stand, and is a LOT more stable than any mic stand I've ever tried, which is a nice ancillary benefit.When I first saw the pedal pal and the microphone stand attached to the pedaltrain, my first reaction was, like others "what's the point" and what a useless invention. But thanks to tonewave's comments I immediately realized the practicality of both mods.
I am not a pro or gigging musician and don't know what it's like to play on a stage that required a fast set up. But I often work as a stage hand at an auditorium and theatre so I do know what it's like having to change a stage in minutes, to keep a show on schedule or flowing. This reminds me of how I have to wait for players, who don't even have a pedal board, set up their 2 or 3 pedals before I can move mic stands and other things into position; it can feel like an eternity when the pace of the show is important to however is running it. The pedal pal and the attachable mic stand would definitely make life a lot easier for us stage crew! Kudos to both ideas!
I like the way this one was done a lot. I had the same concept but used the hardware from the seat of a cheap drum stool to hold the stand.Back to the original theme of the thread.....
We play on some pretty small stages, so I modded a cheapo mic stand base to mount on my PT2. It is rock solid, and fits in the HC.
any chance of doing a "quarter-wide" or something??? i really like this idea, but 7" of width is a bit much for my purposes.
