Dont know if this should be in the pedal or non/pedal section of the forum ! I was inspired by someone on the forum that showed a picture of their pedal and non-pedal combo. So,,,,using the pad from Don Blood, I lowered it to accommodate my Clinesmith S8 from Todd, of course, then used the A/B switch from Jerry Overstreet, and came up with combo as shown. I havent used it out anywhere yet, but I think it will be perfect for those jams where I want the pedal sound sometimes but I want to have the non-pedal sound as well (tuned to A6th). So I dont NEED to buy a D10 now. The neat thing about it is that most of this is from forum members and sharing their talents and workmanship. What should I call Zumsmith or my Clinezum ?? You guys know that I am a wing-nut as Fred Justice likes to call me Smile

Nice!! Practical and functional. Good work. I guess I should contact Don Blood ....I need a pad just like that for my Marlen S-10. I often go between a standard E9 and A6.... The "non" pedal sound is getting much more popular on many of the gigs that I do.
