    Stomp Box Precautions

    Hi, My question is this: Have any readers ever experienced damage to their active Fenders when they plugged them into an effects box? If you want to know why I am asking, please read the following: The conventional method by which an effects box is activated is by the insertion of a mono 1/4"...

    NPD Boss Blues Driver 2 Waza

    So, I don't know if it's worth the money, but as soon as I heard it I was on my way to the checkout. I was looking for a standard bd2 but it was nowhere to be found, I saw this one after walking into the store with another pedal on my mind and I asked the guy to hook this one up 'cause I wanted...

    Passive high pass tone circuit for stompbox.

    Im building a stompbox/kickdrum box and want to add a capacitor that sends basically everything sharply above about 80hz to ground. Like the opposite of a low cut on a mixer channel. Id like it just plug in, dial in volume (on input on mixer with no eq option) and play, and not have to use the...

    Hi pedal people - My name is Mira and I'm the current intern for a really cool project called Stompbox book, a physical coffee table book full of interviews with guitarists about their chosen pedals.

    Pedal help/feedback!

    so a little background. I am a acoustic guy, I use to play in a band and I did use a electric guitar with a awesome marshal stack, but all that has changed now. I recently moved into a small place and just bought a nice small amp that does not take up space. I have never used guitar pedals...

    EHX Pith Fork vs ....?

    The Boss PS-6 and the TC Quintessence are a little "too much" for what I need. I want a harmony on the 3rd or 5th, and that's all. Not necessarily interested in octaves. The EHX Pitch Fork is the best pedal I can find that does what I need. But are there any good alternatives? What do you guys...

    Madbean Ping (Reverb)

    Well, this afternoon I ordered a Reverb module called a Accutron Belton P-RBTDR-3H. It’s a digital Reverb module that has garnered good reviews from what I’ve read. It’s not expensive and only requires a handful of support components to make a Reverb unit that can be mixed down for a milder or...

    Best pedal starting out ?

    I have been looking for a distortion or overdrive pedal to buy for a while. I have come across the tube screamer mini and proco rat 2 as possible options. I have a bad amp but am aiming to buy a fender tube amp very soon. I would not want to spend more than 80 pounds on this pedal. Any...

    Boss TW-1 Power?

    Hey guys, I recently bought a mint condition vintage Boss Touch Wah made in 1982. The "PSA/ACA" sticker on my TW-1 is no longer there. My question is – can I run this pedal through a 9V DC output on my Voodoo Lab? If not, does it require 12V DC? And secondly, how do I even know for sure if it...

    Best Mini Compressor

    I want a compressor with a nice "squish" and stuff, but a mini one. For me it is a set-and-forget type of pedal, that should take up as little space as possible. So I've narrowed it down to the MXR Mini Dyna Comp, TC Electronic HyperGravity Mini, Henretta Orange Whip, Xotic SP, or the Micro...

    Boss Overdrives

    Boss has so many overdrive pedals out there. Can a bunch of you list all of Boss's drive pedals in order (favourite to least) in your opinion? And most importantly, explain why! If I'm missing any, let me know :) OD-1 (40th Anniversary) BD-2 (Blues Driver) SD-1 (Super Overdrive) OS-2 (OD/DS)...

    Headphone practice setup

    Hi! Right now i'm in a position where 90% of my playing would be at home and therefore i'm looking to a nice solution to play my tele into some headphones. Right now I'm using a moen buffalo i buyed ages ago (almost forgotten) but yeah it's not that great as a speaker sim/headphone amp. I've...
