    Hi guys,

    I have an old Ibanez TS-10, and would like to add it to my pedalboard, using Velcro.

    But, I'm having a bad time trying to get the old rubber off the bottom plate.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to how to get it off? Thanks!

    DGA - so, does Velcro stick well to Duct Tape? Also, is the template used in the video just made of paper?
    If so, I could make my own template. Thanks.

    Yes, can it works fine. I did it to all my Boss pedals.

    The first time I tried it, I printed out the template. After that I just traced my pedal each time I did one; it's not a big deal to have that guy's template. I've used regular office paper and also construction paper.

    I clicked on the "checkitloud" link for templates, and my computer says "it's not found on this server." Weird!

    On the TS 9 and 808's the rubber peels off in tact with very little effort. Save a re-attach with light adhesive. If it is stubborn might try a hair dryer and warm it up....peel the whole thing off.

    bluesoul - OK, thanks. I was able to peel of the thicker strips of rubber running along the sides, and then I turned the
    bottom plate over, and reattached it with the screws. Now I can put Velcro on. The thick rubber on it is extremely stubborn!

    Correction: I had turned the bottom plate over, and reattached it (without the plastic sheet that protected the back of the circuit board). But, I had no sound from the TS10. So, I took the plate off, and added the plastic sheet that had been in there, and got the sound back. Not sure why that happened. I turned the plate over, still with the thinner
    rubber on it, and with the plastic sheet. Now I have sound, so I can now put Velcro on it.
