The rack-mount power strips I bought on eBay years ago (lots of server equipment to be found for cheap there) had blank front panels and six or eight outlets on the rear. I've since replaced them with these Tripp-Lite Power Strips that include six front-facing outlets - perfect for plugging in pedals, amps, synths, and phone chargers. If you prefer, the Furman RS-1215-RA I reviewed on page 63 of this issue has vertical outlets to leave room for big wall warts. Both are handy!
