PT-1 hard case question

I have a PT-1 pedalboard full of pedals. Since I tend to be a bit clumsy I have the pedals in the back row on risers. This helps so I don't turn knobs with by big ogre feet. However, this makes it very difficult to close the hard case. One of the latches is already broken. I use a wrap around the case when I am traveling.

I have removed some of the foam from the inside top of the hard case. What are my other options here? I'm afraid that I am damaging my pedals on the top row. They case closes very tightly on the knobs.

I am gigging and practicing. Constantly, so I need something reliable without spending a fortune.

Thanks!

You might want to get a shorter riser for the back row. It shouldn't have to be too high up. Maybe even just something that elevates where the footswitch is, not the entire pedal. So they'd be angled straight instead of angled to the board, if that makes any sense.

Think about putting pedals in the back row that are already taller than the front row of pedals. The case should close tightly, but not so tight that you break off one of the latches. If that's the case, I'd really recommend getting a larger case...

Another solution would be to get a PT2 and spread your pedals out a bit more.

Thanks for the reply. I would like a bigger board but I can't afford that right now.

The risers I have made do exactly what you suggested..bumping up the front end a but more.

What would you suggest I use for risers? I am currently just using some blocks of wood.
