    Hi all, I've been thinking about switching to stompboxes instead of a Boss GT-8 for a while now. I'm after digitech hardwires, I wanna keep my guitar tone as unchanged as possible with the true bypass's and all. I'm thinking though, on a GT-8 you can save all of your used effects from all the...

    Hi, SInce I've had my G-system I've always connected it so that the instrument connects direct to the G-system input, then I send from the 'insert' loop to my amp head, return from the amp FX send, then the G-system output goes to the amp FX return, so that I'm 'inserting' the amps' pre-amp...

    Hey all, Im just about to start putting together my first rack as ive been using a pretty naf valveking head for around a year now which I have slowly grown to hate to the point where I warm up and exercise on a clean 15w amp then plug into the VK then moments later unplug and turn off :).. I...

    Hi have a whammy reissue. It's a great sunding pedal but it has a problem. I have it coming right after my guitars output. When it is turned off, it makes radio signals come through my amp. When it is turned on it adds some hum and radio signals. I have tried to put it as the last thing on...

    Hi folks, I've had one of those Marshall Valvestate amps for a while now (VS265). It's 65 watt PER channel amp, going into 2x12 speakers. Surprisingly loud for its kind. It's been good for being on the budget, and for smaller gigs and practice. I only use the clean channel, and I feed Boss...

    I've always seemed to have this problem where my distortion sounds harsh and not SMOOOOTH. An example of the tone I want is like on Steve Vai's Tender Surrender: or fellow jemsite member, JimmyJ, bitey but still smooth. I'm not sure if it's because I bought the wrong pickups, a Fred for...

    Yeah basically the thread title is my question? What's the difference between putting your pedals through an FX loop as opposed to straight from the guitar to the pedals to the amp input?

    Just some ideas on connecting a GT8 to your tube rig. The differant color lines represent differant signal paths. Hope it makes sense. It's kinda crude.

    I've been reading about various effects loops, and I've noticed that many amps feature multiple effects loops (ofetn both series and parallel). What exactly are the advantages of having multiple effects loops? Also, what are the differences/benefits/advantages between series and parallel...

    Why do some players use an amp head and then go into a power amp. Would I notice a big difference in my sound if I used my amp head as a pre-amp and then went into a power amp? Thx Kev

    i'm a bit of a pedal-a-holic and currently have 9 pedals on my pedal board (one more coming next week). and for a while i knew how it was supposed to be set up with distortion first and modulation after. well i've got some new effects now and would love to know the best way to place them as i...

    To get going into recording, what tips do people have for setting levels, like where should the levels be etc? I've had a play about with it, but would be great to get tips and advice from the more experienced. I'm using a Motu Traveler which has input gain level for each input and there is an...

    Hi all, first off, I just graduated to my first tubed amp, a Peavey Classic 30 and I am very pleased. I don't understand a couple of inputs, though, Effects Send and Effects Return, and have no manual. I know it is a Newbie question, but I only have a couple pedals and a couple stompboxes...

    alright so i usually play my guitar out to a ts9 and then to the amp (Laney tf300 (preamp valve)) and i had heard that if you put your effects through the effects loop you can get different sounds so i though id give it a try. i hooked it all up from the SEND (amp) out to the INPUT of the ts9...
