... if you find yourself with some extra cash in your hand.
Like in 22 years when the twins are done with college?

So right now I've got an SKB PS-45.  It's incredibly convenient with it's power supply and all that shit, but I have no place to keep my cables, and they make a bit of a mess.  I'm thinking of converting to a Pedaltrain, but are those worth it?  Is there a better option?  Or maybe a good way to organize my cables?

I'm sure many of you know but Pedal Train has a website that lets you mess around with board design:

Great for planning or upgrades.

I have a PT-2 and it gets everything done and has a little room for expanding.  After going through many, many reviews I think Pedal Train is the way to go unless you are going to build your own custom board.  Sure it feels like I'm overpaying for a piece of light metal and a bag but I'm not going to take the time to build a custom board right now and I'm sure I saved in wasted lumber by now.

Amps:   Fender Frontman (2x12 - 100w)
Pedals:  TC Polytune 2 > Analogman Silver Mod TS9 > EH Big Muff Pi > Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie 2 Wah > Xotic SP Compressor > TC Flashback Delay > TC Ditto Looper


I have a pt2 at home right now that I had used for approximately 2 years.  It was great and allowed me to fit all the pedals I needed on it and some extra room.  Recently, however, i felt it was a little too spread out, so I grabbed the GC exclusive PT1 at a discounted price and moved all my pedals over in the same configuration as before (I haven't majorly tweaked my setup in about a year).  I love having a smaller board!  It makes me feel like im bringing less to the gig, when im really not.  ;D

I'd say that the PT2 is a great starting point as you start to gather effects but if you find yourself with a lot of extra room on the board downsizing may be the way to go.
