What to use to mount pedals on rack?

Postby Counterstriker » Mon Oct 22, 2012 11:22 am

Hey guys another questions hah! I want to mount my pedals to my rack unit but I'm having trouble finding something to mount them too, I looked up rack cover slots but I need something that's recessed so i can put the cover in it. I talked to another Rukinder and he told me about the Moog rack effects holder

problem is they run about $95 which i think is too much for a piece of metal.. do you guys have any ideas? Thanks a lot!

You are right there, $95 is way too much for a piece of stamped sheet metal.
Could make your own and use tie wraps to hold the pedals on there.

just a thought I've never tried but if you got some long rack screws and used bolts and washers as spacers you could probably recess a flat panel deep enough for your effects. Good luck.

That link has a product for front facing pedals.

If you are okay with have them on a shelf: it's a third of the cost, and can use a smaller rack.

I like the drawer. I do wish it was a bit higher, but I like the compact rack. And it's probably portagable for a guy with a good back.

I have sons. They are strong. Strong sons good. Move Papa's gear. 8)
Might construct a 4x cab with E's just to test sons patience. UgUg

Almost pulled the trigger on the pull out shelf. But I found a website that sells the moog tray for 55 (65) with shipping which is about the same price as the shelf!

If anyone is selling a gxc let me know!
