Pedaltrain Nano Plus hard case

Recommended Posts

For anyone like me who finds the soft case to be a bit flimsy, I ordered one of these today:

I run a helix stomp and a DOD mini expression pedal on my board so reckon this will do the job just fine for 32 quid

Well done that man!  The zip on mine is about to go :)

For boards with pedals with knobs on, hard cases are great as your settings don't get rearranged as easily as with a bag. My old pedal board was just a hard case with the hinges replaced with butterfly catches so the deeper half came off and left the shallow half as the pedal board. The only disadvantage of that is the pedals aren't protected as much as they're velcroed to the inside of the hard case, next one I will do like you and get a case like that to fit, I've got a load of picky foam so I can have it hold the edges of the pedal board but not squish the knobs.

Great shout for the hardcase, thanks!

Do you find that the I-Spot CS-12 has enough umph to power the HX Stomp? I seem to struggle with a Cioks DC5 Link under my nano board powering the Stomp.

Yeah, I double up on 2 of the outputs but then need a centre positive cable to correct the polarity from the doubling up. Then a Line 6 connector. Bit messy but it works

Before you get into all that messy foam-carving stuff, it's worth just taking out the entire block of foam and putting in the original softcase for the Nano+ board.

Not only is it a perfect fit, but it also leaves you with an unused block of foam which is perfect for sculpting your favourite Star Wars character.

Just saying ...

Didn’t think of that - then again, someone might buy my soft case from me to replace their worn out one 😄
