    Hey, all,

    I've been thinking about building a small (Hammond 1590?) junction box that will have:

    1x1/4" i/o (guitar)
    2xXLR i/o (outputs 1&2 from AX8)
    1xXLR i/o (IEM)

    I'm wondering if there are any issues I should be aware of - ground loops, etc before I order & assemble. I don't need buffers in or power to the junction box at all.

    FYI, my pedalboard is basically an AX8, a Line6 G30, & a Shure PSM300 transmitter. Everything is powered by a Voodoo Labs PP2+ (AX8 in the courtesy outlet, G30 & PSM300 from taps 5&6).

    It is self-contained, ready to throw down at a moment's notice. I'm hoping this little junction box will minimize the wear & tear of plugging/unplugging cables from the gear.

    Any thoughts? Advice?

    Thanks in advance!

    I built something similar below. The photos shows my Shure GLXD connected to the box, but that is no longer the case. I run that 1/4inch direct to the AX8. I never really tried running it through the box. I was just worried about picking up extra noise since that box has a lot of stuff in it.

    I've seen that before, @biskitboy ! It looks fantastic! What size box is that? Where did you buy all the parts for that?
