    G.A.S. has hit me again and I ordered another pedal from Pro Guitar Shop in OR. This time it was the T.C. Electronics T2 reverb. I know it's a lot more experimental with its presets, but I have spring reverb in my mixer and a goofy wee Outlaw 24K if need be.

    I just couldn't resist the price on it. I have saved $217 CDN on the two pedals I bought at PGS.

    About the board... It can hold ten pedals. As the Trio isn't an effect, as such, I removed it to place the Guv'nor GV-2. Now I need a spot for the T2, so I guess the 24K will have to go.

    Or, superglue an acrylic extension onto my board. Or build a new one with a piece of 6" x 36" x 1/4" aluminum I have.

    That aluminum sounds tasty. 3ft to chop up any way you wish. There's a few things you could do. A 2 tier 18", or 2 tier 24" bottom- 14" top. As long as you can cut and join it.

    I thought about 21"-15" that would leave lots of room for the wah or a large pedal. Joining it would be easier if I could find or make thin but sturdy brackets. Unfortunately, in the end it's no longer than what I have but I sure do like polished aluminum. Perhaps an aluminum/acrylic hybrid with at least 48" of length.

    I've modulated down to Pedaltrain Nano's. I'll run with one, two or three boards, if needed.

    It's also nice to have a couple pedals off the board to swap, mix and match... at least that's my rationale for owning 50 pedals. :facepalm:

    I justify them by calling them " investments "

    Before last Christmas I had zero pedals. Now I'm at twelve. Got bit hard by the GAS.

    Wait until you try the mini pedals! I've been bit in the last year. I found a few deals on Joyo Ironman pedals (which I think are fantastic-period). I am presently on the lookout for replacements for my tremelo (I only use a classic surf vibe, my Pulsar is wasted on me), reverb (ditto-one setting, wasted versatility) and tuner. I figure if that happens, I'll have room for at least three more mini's. With a loopstrip, I can load'er up!!

    I have a few minis already. A Phase 95, and Outlaws 24K Reverb and Deputy Marshal. Tech keeps getting smaller, and that's a good thing for pedal junkies with limited board space :oops:
    The Pulsar is the largest one, followed by the Crybaby Mini and then the Guv'nor.

    I kinda wish I had bolted rather than superglued the acrylic. OTOH, the directions tell you not place the glued pieces in boiling water...

    You want a Phase 90?? I'll take the Pulsar off your hands.

    Thank you for the offer. I'm not much of a phaser fan, I don't know why. Anyway, at present, tremelo is probably one of my most used effects, even if my use of this great pedal is limited. When I have a mini replacement in hand, I will certainly be willing to offer it for a sweet price.
