I mounted my power supply and did a little cabling tonight. I thought I’d post a few photos for anyone interested. There’s not much on the board yet, but you get the idea.
I chose the tried and true Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+ as my PSU.
I strapped it in with a nylon web strap so it can be easily removed to get to the switches on the bottom if the need arises.
I cut this off of a longer piece and melted the end so it didn’t unravel. I finally got to use the heat knife attachment on my soldering iron.
I also adhered some of the same close celled foam I used inside the channel strip to make sure the PSU didn’t slip at all.
This shows some basic wiring and pedal layout. The PSU wires are pretty long but I may have to make some custom wires to reach the far right side of the board. Voodoo Labs sells all the parts for them. Notice that there is room for a second PSU if it is needed below the shelf. Also I discovered that if I ever want to really pack some pedals on that board I can fit two full rows of the smaller pedals across the bottom. They’ll fit fine directly above one another. Lining them up with the holes could be tricky but I can always drill more!!
These are just some examples of how I’ll cable the board. I intend to keep it all color coded for identifying each loop’s signal chain.
That’s it for now. I’ll post some updates periodically as my pedal collection grows.
