Right, so i've just finished wiring a 4 way footswitch for my amp/rig and it's all sweet except one thing. I need an enclosure.

Needs to be about 300x100x40mm (W/D/H) and possibly slanted? like the marshall switches.

Preferably undrilled but that's not a HUGE issue i guess.
Could really do with being in the UK so i don't have to pay for shipping etc....

Any help would be awesome!!
Thanks

Any reason you need such a large enclosure for just 4 footswitches?

Those hammond enclosures are nice, I built a dual pedal into one, but it had 6 footswitches and 10 knobs, and that was only the 6" x 6" one, which is only 152mm x 152mm.

Just trying to get more information so I can help you find the right enclosure for the job.

Ah I see, sorry I thought you said 2 way before. Try browsing the hammond site, see what's what. Most of their enclosures are available of RS, Farnell, RapidOnline and Mouser, all in the UK. Having it slanted does limit you a bit. The diecast aluminium enclosures Hammond make are excellent to work with, and easy to paint up etc if that is a consideration?

yeah i've used hammond before, they're nice, but they tend to be a bit 'deeper' than i need! I'll keep looking

So another thing to mention is that a lot of the amp footswitches the big manufacturers use are made for that specific company, and thus not available to the public. You could have a look through some of these:

And remember, if the enclosure is too deep, you can always stack the foot switches instead of lining them up in a row. That way if the enclosure depth was too big, you could simply get a shorter version (less wide). Another thing to consider is just using a standard pedal enclosure, and making something to mount underneath, like an angled piece of wood for example. That way you still get the angle you want.

Other options if you went that route:
