    Title says it all. My band mostly practices at this point with a gig every now and then. This happens when you're in your 40's and everyone's got kids! Not really looking for a road worthy board.

    I'm looking for something that will hold around 6-8 effects and a pedal power. Just sick of taking it all apart and putting it all back together.

    Does the Pt Jr. fit a PP2 underneath? I don't think that it does.

    That's a good question Josh. Does anyone know? I don't want to use space up top on a jr. for a PedalPower.

    Iam not sure i dont use power supply but there is some room under the rack. If your handy you could mod it to work with a piece of plywood and some spacers were the rubber feet go. Or a nice piece of metal. ive seen them used for 60.00 dollars in the imporium.

    I am an idiot. I keep forgetting the pile of stuff to sell in my basement!

    I have one of these never used:

    http://www.rondomusic.com/pdc410c.html

    Not nearly as sturdy as a pedaltrain, but big enough to hold two rows of pedals. . . . . and very cheap.

    PM if you're interested. . .

    I do know from experience that it WILL fit a DC brick. I know it's a glorified daisy chain, but I never had any issues with it.

    You might also check out LYT pedalboards.... Very cost effective and look really sturdy.

    I've got the smaller Gator board with their power supply. $100 including the supply. I've never had any problems with the board, the gig bag or the supply. The supply also has three 18V taps, which is nice. My only complaint is that I wish they had a medium size, as this one is a bit small (I can get 6-7 pedals on it), and the big one is huge.

    i'm in the same situation as you... i bought a pedaltrain 2 with the soft case and it's perfect for my needs. right now i have it powered with a one-spot... but will eventually bump up to a PP2.

    If you want a nice looking and very well made board check out pumaboards.com he makes great boards at a very reasonable price.
