Modded my SKB-PS45 for all Voodoo power

Version two of this rig I've posted, but there have been some significant changes. (See "First Voodoo Lab rig!" for the first incarnation)

First, I added the Decimator G String II and the Forest Green compressor, and took away the original Decimator I.

Second, I took out the stock SKB power supply and patch bay, and brought in my own.

Third, I'm no longer running the Voodoo supplied wall warts and am running everything off of a Pedal Power 2+.

Signal flow is now: Guitar - Bullet Cables Coily Cable - Morley Bad Horsie 2 - TC Polytune - Guitar in of Decimator - Buffered input of pedal switcher - Loop 1: Custom Overdrive into Forest Green Compressor - Loop 2: EVH 5150 III preamp (always on) - Loop 3: Gate section of Decimator II - Loop 4: EHX Memory Toy - Effects return of EVH 5150 III.

Notes: May be switching to wireless soon, so the addition of an ISO 5 would be necessary to power everything on the board. EHX still making strange noises on higher gain settings, possibly swapping to TC Flashback or MXR Carbon Copy. No more noise! Seriously, this voodoo stuff is dead quiet. Couldn't be happier with how much hum it took out of ALL three channels of the amp. A lot of dead weight has been taken out of the board, and it's now much easier to haul from show to show.

P.S: Mickey is there because why not, and the gold medallion is for eternal life.

How did you take off the power supply? Any damage to the pedal board?

I was thinking about doing it, if for no other reason than the thing is heavy as hell when fully loaded with gear.

Four screws on the bottom. Then I found four pieces of scrap wood that fit the pockets left by the original power supply. Then it's just screw in the wood to fill the pockets, cover in Velcro, and carpet staple the velcro down to prevent "lift off". Also, hard to see but little right angle brackets from Erector Sets are GREAT for any Voodoo Lab power supply when you're on the cheap.
