I think you will love the AD900...I have owned so many pedals in the past, and it's the one I held onto the longest...probably 8+ years or something! :o 8)

Of course I will! It's pink and made by Maxon and has MN3005s in it! What's not to like?! I bet a slightly larger than mini board where I paired the 900 with my big box DMM would kill too... hmmmm.

Klone> Nano Muff> DMM> AD-900> Super Duper... How are you guys powering these things? Don't want to go down the PP2+ route, something slightly thinner would be ideal but I'd obviously need 12 and 24V.

I've had a few that I've used adapters with, just have to make sure you don't have a Japanese 100v adapter.

Typically I run my pedals on a PedalTrain Jr. which has space for a PP2+ underneath. It's always supplied nice quiet power to my AD900s. Just remember it requires a reverse polarity cable. ;)

I need to make a small board like this. I have such few pedals, but the way the PedalTrain Jr. is I always have to put one or two in a 'second row'. I'd really like to have everything up front like this. Maybe this winter I'll get serious about it. If anything I can stick my PP2 in the second row - its not a pedal!

There's something really cool about a single line board. Maybe I'd be fine with just one delay, maybe I could pop in my old DD2 for longer delays and only have one analogue on the board. Maybe a TC Polytune Mini> Klone> Nano Muff> AD-900> Super Duper would just about squeeze onto a Nano... Of course I already have one perfectly awesome board, I just fancy something smaller! I kinda want to keep the power supply under the board for this one... Maybe something like a T Rex Fuel Tank Jr would work with a charge pump to provide 12V for the Maxon.

I think the single line board forces us to downsize in many ways...

I have had a Pedaltrain 2 in the past (in fact what you see in the pic is half of it) and the extra space on the top tiers just screams "buy more pedals you don't really need" :D

Ha ha! I already have the other pedals though!
Here's my current main board;

It's relatively minimalist compared to some... It's missing my tuner and I run a wah and a Fuzz Probe up front but you get the idea.

After messing with pedalboardplanner.com I think I could just about squeeze those five onto a PT Nano provided I could mount the PS on the bottom...

I thought I read the PT Nano doesn't have room underneath???

Z: is your slim pedalboard above a PT Nano? Can you confirm of deny?

I think the Fuel Tank Jr fits under a Nano. There's also the Pedaltrain supplies but I don't know if they do 230V.
