I've slimmed down...
There have been several threads recently about guys getting their rig down to a PedalTrain Mini, so I thought I'd share my effort.
I first decided upon my "must have" effects (tuner, OD, comp, delay and chorus), and then picked my favorite pedals with a preference for smaller pedals over larger ones (thus the Line 6 DL just didn't make the cut). I managed to stand a Fuel Tank Jr. in the upper right corner, without losing any effective pedal space. I stole an extra inch on either end of the pedal board by using zip ties to supplement the usual velcro strips, which gave me the room and the luxury of adding an extra OD pedal. Even with the extra inch on both ends and the extra height to the Fuel Tank Jr., everything fits easily into the soft case.
The George L cables effectively leave a 1" gap between pedals. If I could find some smaller right-angle plug, I think I could free up another 2", which would let me do away with the zip-tied pedals on either end. I've gigged with this set-up twice now and really like the set-up, the pedal selection and the small footprint.
