    I'm looking to buy generic boxes, like a Boss pedal box, but just plain.

    Does anybody know where/if these are sold? I haven't had any luck finding these.

    Note: by "box" I mean the cardboard boxes the pedal comes in, not the metal enclosure of the effects pedal

    With swinging pedal? Or just a rectangular box you can drill for a footswitch?

    I have one, you can have it for the price of shipping...

    It's a ps-2:

    so, it's not blank. Image from the net, but, mine's in similar condition (or worse). It was in a tub, that got flooded & was engulfed in water for months, so the guts are shot. The case though, is usable...

    thanks for offer.......I should have been more specific, I'm looking for a boss-sized/style cardboard box. Just a plain cardboard box that can fit a boss pedal, then a lid/cover.
    I'll update the original post.

    What are these style boxes called? They seem very hard to find.

    Thanks, PM sent...

    I have a bunch of empty BOSS pedal boxes.
    Turns out they are worth something even empty...

    Sorry, but I have no idea on that one.

    I've always kept most of the boxes I bought pedals in, they're actually a bit of a hassle, ya have to put a bunch of little boxes in a big box, then store it..I actually have an original box for a TS 808 I bought back in the 80's, still marked with like a $42.00 price ..Sold the pedal, wound up inadvertently keeping the box.

    I've heard that one might be worth something to a collector.

    I was at the electronics store yesterday, & they make all sorts of project boxes, out of plastic, aluminum, etc., that you can do any sort of project w/.

    Not sure why you need a cardboard box the size of a pedal, but, there's plenty of options out there...

    The case (box) I gave Micky, is probably overkill for what he wants to do w/ it, but, if he can get it doing what he wants, then more power to him...
