    Hi again. Couple of hours later and I was at a restaurant, and low and behold, the very same tin.

    Of course, I forgot to post it after I finished eating...

    Yes... but you wouldn’t leave your gig bag lying at your feet for the audience to see, and as a trip hazard for you, which is where the tin comes in. Although mine is in my pocket tbf.

    OP: I used to collect Fisherman’s Friend tins of all different sizes, from wherever I saw them. The Japanese one was pretty cool until I took off the plastic film to open the thing: most of the kanji was on a bit of card, not printed on the tin. Now, I’m using this:

    If this is the stupidest conversation you’ve ever taken part in, I’ll eat my hat.

    If I had room on the board, which I don't, and didn't have a back pocket, which I do, I'd use this!

    Nope, sight unseen here in the great white north -- pedalboard real estate is too valuable for something like that... However, I often use a Dunlop mic stand pick holder, and my gig bag is usually behind the amp for easy access.

    I use one the Altoids Devil Girl tins from about 1998-99ish. Gets a lot of funny looks at church.

    1-DSCN0263.JPG I don't have space on my pedalboard to spare, but I do have tins for my picks.
    they go in the case or gigbag

    I grew up in a what was once a mining town. Forgot I had this. Just as a PSA, don’t be crimping one of these caps onto the stick fuse with your teeth.

    This truly wasn't intended to be a post-ironic thread but... Thanks, to those who thought it so and equally thanks to those who defended it as so.

    btw that's not intended to be ironic or beyond ironic.... Just ... Thanks.

    and... As a lifelong Small Faces fan.... Would this be the tin to have the ultimate / most MoJo? :)

    Lots of tin for my picks, none for my pedalboards.

    I've been relegated to bass at church, there being enough guitarists; none of them use tins that use pedalboards. Me, I use a Zoom thing for a tuner and a little unobtrusive chorus, and that's all I can get away with. ("What's making you sound funny?" the sound guy asks.) When I get hankerin' for the smell of solder I'll use whatever's handy for a case, and so I have a distortion in a spam can and another flavor of overdrive and octave in a tea tin. I think I still have Analog Man's Orange Squeezer circuit in a speaker selector box somewhere. They're fun to make and rarely get used after that... (shrug). The regular size Altoid tins are good for small projects in that they just fit a 9V battery and a simple circuit and switches and connectors can be fitted in.
