Mounting Wah Pedal to Pedalboard
Anyone who has ever tried to mount a wah pedal to a pedalboard knows that due to the battery cover and footer screws it can present a challenge. I found a company called Alloy Musical Products that manufacture a product called FX Dex, which are effects mounting plates for wah pedals and other effects pedals. The mounting plates are Precision CNC machined from solid 6061 aircraft aluminum alloy and are dimensionally identical to the stock base plate.
I ordered one to use on my Dunlop Rack Wah Controller and found it to be a great high quality solution for getting a smooth stable platform for mounting your wah pedal. The alloy plate replaces the stock bottom plate using the original screws and allows you to return the pedal to stock if need be. Note: the plate does not feature a door to access the battery like the stock plate but this was not an issue since I have a power supply on my board. For more info you can check their website at: www.alloymusicalproducts.com.
Here are some photos of the FX Dex plate and how it looks when installed.
