    I just put together a small pedal board last night for the Ampli-Firebox using a Dingbat Small and a Truetone CS6. I wanted something small and easy to carry that I can use with a Headrush FRFR 108. I haven't had much time to play around with it so there is some housekeeping and fine tuning to be done. I may want to get a couple of those short coils mentioned previously for a one or two of the tighter cable runs.

    Space was actually a bit less than I thought based on using the pedalplayground tool but I got everything I wanted to fit and I still have some flexibility. I can swap out the two mini pedals for a full size one, maybe substitute a chorus, or an EQ or some other modulation effect. The space for the White Spiral Boost could also accommodate any of my larger drive pedals like the Barber Direct Drive Super Sport, GCX, Open Road, or a Rat. The left channel jack from the Flashback is accessible so I could run a cable out to an amp for a stereo effect.

    The Dingbat has a lot of cutouts to accommodate cables and pre-drilled screw holes to make it easily compatible with multiple VD Labs power supplies. However I went with the Truetone CS6. The CS6 has three screw holes in the top of the unit to attach it to the underside of a board, and in general you need to drill the holes. You can only line up one of the screw holes with the pre-drilled holes on the Dingbat, but rather than drill two more holes, I used velcro and one screw to hold the unit in place and it's very secure.

    Looking forward to putting this little rig through its paces in 2020.

    Thanks, do you know who builds them? I tried to zoom in to the name, but couldn't read it.

    Thoughts on the Saturn VI? What amps are you running with this?

    What a badass rig.

    Real happy with the setup I've had for a little while now. Embarrassing and stupid amount of pedals have come and gone the past few years only to end up with all of my favorites that I should have just stuck with in the beginning.

    Just put this together.
    Ultimate support pedalboard.
    Waiting for a VL ISO5 which will clamp underneath.
    I know I've gone way overboard on this,but what the hell.

    Am I the only one on TGP looking for a Wah with top mount jacks? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I started my 2020 without a pedalboard and plan to stick with it. I'm going quite minimal with my beloved RMC10 - Mad Professor Supreme - Fulltone SSTE. Everything powered by battery and going right into a cooking Super Reverb amp.

    Slick board. I love Rawkworks stuff, but never tried an Eliora. I've heard it's pretty muff-like, do you find that to be accurate?

    I have been using an expression pedal hooked to my H9 for a couple of years now. It saves room on my board and I can get a pretty good tone out of it. Does it 100% replicate my RMC wah? Of course not. But the convenience factor cannot be overstated.
