Minifooger rackmounting

Post by XAXAU » Tue Sep 01, 2015 11:36 am

Will there be a steel plate för racking say 4 minifoogers in a 19" rack?

I´d like one for sure!

I'd just get a sheet of tin or aluminum, cut it to the rack's width and to the height needed for however many rows of minifoogers you'll need.

Then, drill some holes for the rack mount screws, and smaller holes for the screws that hold the minifoogers' feet.

Remove the feet, screw the pedals to the sheet, screw the sheet to the rack.

It's a $5 - $10 solution.

One of my friends at Moog says that they simply use a 4U blank rack panel, and then remove all the rubber feet from the minifoogers.

Velcro strips (with adhesive on the backs) are then used to attach the minifoogers to the blank rack panel.

He says it works perfectly, just like a pedal board.

Thanks Dan! :) I don´t have any buddies that can do metal but I do know how to work with wood so that could work. Just screw the minifoogers to the wood or use military grade velcro! :)

You can buy pre-made aluminum rack panels in just about any size. I've seen 1ru, 2ru, 3ru, 4ru, and 5ru for sure. You could then just drill holes for cabling and match up to where the screws go into the minifoogers. That way you don't have to get gross Velcro glue all over your nice Moog pedals.

True about the glue! But are the metal sheets bend like the moogerfooger plates?

Not quite sure what you mean. The aluminum rack panels are much thicker than the base of a minifoogers, so they will bend, but you'd have to really abuse them to get that to happen.

Sorry I meant "bent" like the moogerfooger racking plate?

But if the rack rail is mounted deeper that type will work too! :D
