Curious as to what players here are using to affix their QC to their pedalboard for transport. Cabling, plus padding on the lid? Velcro? Straps? Chewing gum? Always a dilemma for me when setting up a pedalboard.
Heavy duty/industrial grade Velcro is my method of choice.
If you are using a Temple Audio board they have great mounting plates you stick under the QC or what ever pedal you want to mount and then srew it on the board. On all other board I’m using Dual Lock tape. But don’t use to much of it. First time I used Dual Lock I put two stripes over the complete length of my Helixs I had back then. It was a nightmare to get the Helix of the board when I sold it.
Power-Grip Pedalboard Mounting Tape. this stuff works perfect
Here is my new pedalboard…not as fancy and neat as most awesome boards posted here, but haven’t seen much with any poweramps included on the board…so here goes my version…can’t get much simpler
Tried out the Holeyboard pedalboard. Was hoping the quad cortex fit in the bottom but one of the xlr ports was blocked so I tried putting it on the top level and I actually like it. Feels really good especially if I bend down to edit presets
Hey everyone! Figured this was good a place as any to introduce myself and my new QC rig! Really pleased with how this thing sounds and feels. Came from a Kemper with a full pedalboard and am happy to say I don’t miss it.
Pedaltrain Classic 1, BigSky and Walrus Audio Julia in FX Loop 1 and 2 respectively.
Mine is an old Pedaltrain Mini. I was able to fit the cioks dc7 power supply underneath. In order to connect power to the dc7, I zip-mounted a Temple Audio IEC AC Mains Micro Module. This has a power on/off switch which is very convenient.
The Wampler Ego Comp Mini (always on) connects to the IN of the QC. The Keeley Modded TS9DX is connected in the first effect loop. I will add a second OD for the second loop.
I see some guys powering their QC and also their Shure GLXD16 with the Cioks DC7. Does the Shure also need a Y-Adapter and what settings at the Cioks has to be chosen? If I take a look at my unit, there just stands “9 to 15V, 250mA”.
Many thanks in advance.
Hi, I wanted to share my very compact QC pedalboard setup. Still a work in progress, but getting there.
The power module I am using to connect the power cable of the Cioks DC7 is the power extension module for the Temple Pedalboards (look at the last pic). It has a power on/off switch which makes it easier to turn on and off the whole pedalboard without having to unplug power every time.
I attached it to my Pedaltrain Mini using zip ties.
How do you power the QC with the DC7? Do you need to use like 4 outlets?
Yes, I connected all 4 as per instructions here in the forum. However, not all 4 outlets on the DC7 seem to be on all the time (only 3 of them), so I might get away with using only 3.
You’ll need 4, per Cioks that can happen when you max the output of one of the taps… the light turns out. It’s completely normal. Usually it happens at boot up but returns after having it on for a while. There’s more juice necessary on start up. Hope that helps.
I’ll play… 2 Metro 20’s with DVP5’s and cioks dC7 derivatives for the Ol’ powee wowee. I also just swapped out some of the taller mooer toppers for their shroom versions. It worked great at last nights show (the bottom pics)
thanks for clarifying!
Yeah it happened with the Eventide PowerMax V1 I have so I wrote support. I’ve since noticed the longer the session, that it normalizes and turns back on.
Edit: The support reference = Cioks as I originally put a ticket in w/ eventide but they told me to message Cioks as they haver zero to do w/ the manufacture of the PowerMax…
Now you have some great flexibility! Its a shame that qc needs the morningstar really but you have a great rig now.
