That doesn't say anything good for the wiring in those pedals.
It could have been the Muff itself. That's the only pedal out of the chain altogether now.
You should try that tuner in a loop some time. That'd be the first thing I'd isolate. Also, I don't know anything about your volume pedal, but all the ones I've had attenuate. Next one I get will end up in a separate bypass.
The Morley is an active optical Volume Pedal. It doesn't suck tone out
For whatever it's worth to you, that's not why I'd isolate it.
I don't know how long your cables are, maybe you have 100 feet to your amp or something, but generally I think a little capacitance is nothing compared to the change any active circuit makes. It may be good or bad depending on what you like, but an active circuit is definitely different than going straight in to a tube amp.
If you're interested in getting the kind of responsiveness that a direct connection to a high voltage tube amplifier offers, you will not experience it with buffered pedals in the signal path. If your signal is buffered, then the buffer is your amp as far as the pickup is concerned. My buffer is the first tube in my amp's preamp circuit, whenever my pedals are off. Which is more often than not.
I'm in the process of a pedalboard redo. My new chorus pedal has to fit somewhere.
I'm over pedaled. Lol
Put the Plimsoul sideways about the Blues Driver and put the Chorus in its place
Ooohhh. The CE-2W. Do tell.
Also, I'm intrigued by the Bigsky/Timeline placement. Can you easily (in the dark, when distracted by singing, crowd antics, etc.) hit the rightmost BigSky and leftmost Timeline button accurately and without hitting the other by mistake? It's not an implicit criticism. I'm tempted to put a Truetone H20 next to my VS-X9 and the pedals wouldn't be touching as in your pick, but pretty close. Thanks.
So far, I haven't had any issues, but I have the presets so that the hall verb and an analogish delay are the ones that are close together. These are my infrequently used presets. I play in a country rock band live, so not a lot of effects needed. I do lots of recording though, that's where the Strymon stuff really shines.
And the CE-2w is magnificent!! It sounds so great. It is quiet and lush. The vibrato setting is especially fantastic!
I changed/swapped a couple of things after I sold my Keeley Super mod Workstation to a colleague. The pedal is killer for the price, but his order (for the same pedal) was delayed and he was a little bit depressed. I gave him mine for a couple of days and when he told me "take my money, please!" I thought it was a good idea. Bought a Boss DD-7 and that's it.
Timmy>Keeley C4>RC Booster>Dunlop DVP4 volume>Boss DM-3>Boss DD-7
External tap tempo for the DD-7 (bottom left), TC Polytune tuner in the DVP4 tuner out (almost always on), trem and verb on both my amps.
Hey Teleprankster, how do you think the DD-7's analog mode compares with the sound of your DM-3?
My latest iteration. Looks like the last board I posted except: I ditched the Dunlop Crybaby Mini wah and picked up a mint used Xotic Wah. I think the price is ridiculous but it sounds fantastic.
Digging the Truetone. This covers everything I need. Plays really nice with my Dual Terror and Tiny Terror.
I am kind of low tech- but can get anything I need for any style with this. Qtron+>God Botherer>badcat siamese drive in front and danelectro dan echo and dimension c in loop of budda twinmaster
I was thinking about testing them today, I got the DD-7 a couple of days ago.
I'll make you know.
I'm using the same board for 3 months and don't see a need for change!
Unless I could have my Fuzz Head back... It would probably replace the Astrofuzz.
Updated board with loads of sounds. Love my new Simble:
It's a really sweet sounding "Dumble-style" drive. Works wonders in conjunction with the Spark. The spark is set to sound a bit like an EP-style boost. I can do a recording tomorrow if you wanna hear =)
