If you're fast you may be in time to order a Bliss Factory (they may return, but not for 6 months, and not at this price)

I just noticed that the Weezer pedalboard is in a rack drawer. I assume this means a sound tech is doing the switching for him but wouldn't it be cool if you could pull your drawer out, place it on the floor, and be ready to go?

i saw a vid s while back with biffy clyro.
his pedals (main guy) were in draws, but he had one of those gig rig things, which he did the switching on himself. but all he had on stage was the gig rig and a wah pedal. (maybe a volume).

not sure how that worked though to be honest, don't they need the pedals plugged in as well?
maybe that was in there and he was using a midi switch controller?

Yes, I think you're right about the switch controller. That's how the old Bradshaw switching system worked, it's basically a midi controlled patch bay that brings pedals in and out of the circuit. It's funny to use a $2,000 switching system with $100 pedals, especially when all of those TC pedals are inside of the Plethora multi-effects pedal.

I have two Voodoo Labs Hex switchers for MIDI control and a few of these https://www.jhspedals.info/switchback. I can control all of them from one of my Pacer controllers. This allows me to have the pedals within arms reach, while still being able to switch them in and out with my feet.

Cool. They should make a pedal called 'This is not a Lovetone'
