    Disagree, Its a great idea!

    I don't change eq on my amp as my onboard pre amp is very flexible. the speaker cable length is not an issue,

    If anyone can hear the difference in a 12G speaker cable from 1 meter to 3 or even 10 meters then you must have some sort of super powers.

    Exactly, I went from two cases to one and don't have to patch my amp in. Plug in speaker, gat and I'm away.

    Given that some own massively expensive gear, has anyone considered the massively expensive GigRig G2 pedal switching system that also comes with thevGigRig power supply?

    https://www.thegigrig.com/g2

    The reason I asked is because I gave my Pedaltrain 2 and Voodoo Labs power supply (and some old Boss pedals) to a struggling musician friend of mine and will have to start from scratch. I do have other pedals to replace the chorus and flanger, but have yet to decide on the board itself. I may go with one of those flightcase ones by custompedalboards out of the UK. Custom Pedal Boards - It's what we do!
    Mind you this would be for guitar or bass.
    Any recommendations?

    There are a few different brands that make similar switching systems. Personally, I feel that they take up too much room on the board. But they certainly have their advantages too (reducing "tone suck", allowing you to turn on and off multiple pedals at once, etc.)

    Earthquaker recently put out a much smaller unit they call the "Swiss Things". I find the intended usage too specific, with dedicated loops for dirt vs modulation (see video below).

    Also worth checking out is the Boss ES-5 or ES-8. Also the One Control Crocodile Tail Loop Switcher.

    Thanks, I’ll check them out. It’s avoiding tone loss that I’m primarily looking for.

    I don't know much about how stuff works

    But I wanted to say good on you for helping someone less fortunate out with that gear.

    I think it looks the goods.
    I'd probably be a nervous nelly having the amp on the floor
    Having it on top of a cabinet would make me feel more secure

    Great idea though, I can't remember ever seeing that before
