    I was really wondering, if you had a wah, 4 Boss sized pedals, one Mojovibe, and 2 Visual Sound (the baseball-diamond shaped pedals...kinda large) would they all fit nicely on a pedaltrain 2 board?

    If so, is there also room for a volume pedal (Ernie Ball)?

    Also, I really can't tell for sure, is the pedaltrain 2 (or any of them) raised at all at an angle...with the back higher than the front? If it is, is there room underneath to attach a Voodoo, or Big-John style 7 gang pedal power supply so it is out of the way?

    Are pedals all tie-wrapped, or velcroed? If velcro, is it the hook side on the pedal board or the loop side? Or do you attach it yourself?

    Any other things I should be aware of? I am thinking about buying one of the packages with the case as well.

    Thanks! If you can only answer a few of the questions, but I really need (in the end) all of them answered!

    Thanks in advance!

    I think you'll struggle to get all that on a Pedaltrain 2. A Pro might be better. But why not find the dimensions from the Pedaltrain site and do a layout on a piece of card or paper?

    You won't fit a VL PP under a Pedaltrain 2, but it will go under the Pro, with a bit of work. See here:

    There are photos on the Pedaltrain site that show the tilt angle.

    the velcro comes uninstalled, you choose the hook or loop side yourself.

    Thanks, I assume then that is the case on all models. Cool!

    Know about the clearance situation underneath, if there is room enough for a Big-John (seems to be same size about as Voodoo power) underneath?

    The Pedaltrain 2 board is

    24" x 12.5" x 2"
    or about
    61 x 32 x 5.1 cm

    I would just cut out a similar sized piece of cardboard and try it out.

    Thanks, will do. One thing though...that 5 cm height...is that at the highest point, at the back of the board? I see that the board is tilted, so does that mean there is 5 cm (or 2") clearance under it, or would I have to also take into account the thickness of the slats on the board?

    Yes. A bit less cutting needed because the Big John is a little smaller, but thre's really not much in it. As I said, forget about this on the Pedaltrain 2, you'll only be able to get it to fit on the Pro.

    The 5 cm clearance will only be on the front side, from there it`s gradually tilted down to no clearance at all. Btw I have the Pro model (having a 3" = 7.5 cm clearance).

    There`s a thread with pictures on how to fit the PPII underneath a Pro board;
