    Hello Tone Bender players!

    I'm very excited! Just bought a used DAM Sola Sound MKII Tone Bender in a very good condition.
    Should arrive in a few days. :)

    But here is my question...
    How to mount it on the Pedaltrain?
    I don't wanna put velcro under the Tone Bender because I want to leave the bottom plate in original condition.
    What's the best way?

    And just another question...
    Does anyone have experience with the Gigrig Virtual Battery in combination with Tone Benders?

    Thanks to everyone!!! :)

    It's an effects pedal, a very good one at that, stick some velcro on and enjoy it.

    blue painters tape - will adhere enough to hold the velcro and won't leave residue when removed.

    That's a very good idea! Thx!!! :)
    And what to do with the rubber feet and screws?
    Take the feet off and shorter screws?

    Second on the blue painter's tape.

    Side note: most guys who are in to the DAM tbs and other larger breakout boxes like that are generally a little old school and only have 1 or 2 pedals.. on the floor. Hence the feet. I love my DAMs, but have other stuff (like castledine, sonic vi, etc.) in standard size boxes for pedalboard use.

    if you have some tin snips and some thin sheet metal, you can cut yourself a new bottom plate for it if you don't want to velcro the original one.

    Don't forget to take your shoes off before you stomp on it

    Funny, had the same first world problem today. one of the old school guys who ran only a boost, wah and echoplex for years. New gig needs a few pedals. So bought a Pedal train 1 today. I was going to run soul bender big box, or go Guitar, Damm then into my switcher I use to to bypass it all, but found it would fit on the board so in the same dilemma. One thing the screws in the Damm are ******, more self tapping the machine screws and will easily strip, the way they are drilled into the casting is 1/2 assed so removing the feet and using another screw might be a real issue. Thinking just velco or run it not on the board, as it a battery might be best.

    Put some velcro, these things are made to be played.
    If you bought it for an investment leave it as is and have it outside your board.

    I think the idea with a replacement bottom plate is the best.
    I'm thinking about to try the Virtual Battery with the Tone Bender.
    And when it's working good with the Bender, I need to cut a piece into the bottom plate for the cable.
    And that's the reason why I don't want to use the original plate.
