What do i hook plug from marshall dfx foot pedal to amp and guitar

If you're asking if the foot pedal goes between the guitar and the amp or straight in to the amp then it's the latter.

How can i get more metal distortion from my peavey 6505+ 112 combo amp?

Tone is a hard thing for some to achieve. Kinda sounds like the amp isn't satisfactory to you as a player. I use an ADA MP-1 with a quadraverb GT and I can sound like Steve Vai with almost any amp. The pedals you mentioned should all sound pretty good with almost any amp. You kinda sound as if your amp sounds wimpy. ALSO, a good metal distortion is a combo of effects as well as tone(layering). The sound you may be expecting may be the sounds of 4 effects combos at a time through a line mixer making it all sound like one sound. I use rack stuff BECAUSE I can get the sounds that NO pedals can give. This also sounds like your knowledge of the equipment needs improvement. True tweaking of gear takes years to perfect, especially if you're a picky guitarist like myself.

Behringer x v-amp pedal creates no sound through my amp only an drone that sounds like electrical feedback?

I have one, and IT WORKS for me!

As the manual suggests, the 1st step is to RESET your pedal board. I know, you 'll have to erase 20 custom presets of yours but hey, they're already lost anyway!... So just reset the on board chip by pressing the TAP and STORE buttons together for 5 seconds while you power ON the X V-amp. That's it! Now the board sounds good as new!

My DL4 doesn't sound as it should in my series fx loop. Is there any way possible to solve this problem WITH OUT putting it directly into the amps input? I need help!!! I play my amp wich is class A...

your parallel loop only has input, a series has out and in, you need to patch the out of amp to the in of the pedal, and out of the pedal to the in of the amp fx loop. then you need to make sure your loop is turned on, via switch or footpedal.

Hi my zoom g1x fx is having some sound issues,it creates unpleasant noises and the sound kinda fades. I noticed the fading of the sound when i'm picking the thinner strings but it sounds so loud on the...

Hello. I am assuming that you are using the manufacturer supplied mains power supply and not running it from battery (otherwise replace the battery before doing anything else). I have noticed a similar problem occasionally with my Zoom G1XN too - mostly when I have been using it with headphones plugged directly into the pedal. Sometimes gently wiggling the output jack plug seems to have solved the problem - however I have had it occur when using the pedal with an amp too. Next step would be to try using different jack leads (or swapping the ends round) to make sure it is not a problem with poor contacts in the sockets. If this seems to solve the problem a little squirt of switch cleaner in the sockets wouldn't go amiss - but leave it 24 hours to dry out before using again. Do you find it only happens on some patches or on all of them? I have one patch that is absolutely clean (straight through with every effect set at flat/zero). Try that with one patch and see if it still does it and to give you a quick comparison. However, I think there may also be a bit of a problem with the effects processor itself (either in the design or the circuitry) - let's face it the GX1 is a modestly priced unit and they probably keep the price down by using cheap components. My usual solution has been to switch it off and remove all the plugs and start again. This has worked but is kind of annoying if it happens in the middle of a gig or half way through recording a song. Lastly I would try re-calibrating the expression pedal. as follows
  1. Turn the unit off
  2. Hold down the PEDAL ASSIGN button whilst turning on the power/ inserting input jack-plug.
  3. Raise the expression fully and press the STORE key (display should read "UP")
  4. Push the pedal down as far as it will go, until it hits the stop, and then release it (it will return slightly at this point)
  5. Press the STORE button again.
  6. If the display reads "Er" repeat the process from step 3 above.

Hello I have this pedal too and have experienced similar problems..
If you are using battery power only use Duracell Ultra (or equivalent) never re-chargeable batteries. However I am assuming you are using the mains power adapter rather than batteries.
Start by eliminating external issues. Change your guitar lead and output lead - if you don't have spares swap them over or swap the ends round to make sure it is not a contact issue in the jack sockets.
I found this problem occurred most often when I was using headphones plugged directly into the pedal rather than an amp. I was usually able to solve it by wiggling the output jack plug slightly so came to the conclusion that it was just a poor quality plug or socket.
Having said that I think that there might be a bug in the processor unit itself because I have occasionally experienced the problem when playing through an amp. I resolved it by unplugging everything and starting again but this is a bit annoying either during a gig or half way through a recording session.
Does it do it on every patch or only on some? I have one patch that is completely clean (straight through) with no effects, noise reduction, boost, with the tone set at flat. You could try setting a patch like that up as a comparison and see if it still does it.
Lastly you could try recalibrating the expression pedal.
  1. Unplug the input jack to turn the unit off.
  2. Hold down the pedal assign button whilst plugging the input jack back in.
  3. The display should read 'dn'
  4. Raise the pedal fully and press the store key
  5. The display now reads 'UP'
  6. Push the pedal fully down to the stop and then release it (it will return slightly)
  7. Press the store key again
  8. Job done (unless the display reads 'Er' - in which case repeat from step 4)

The Schecter C1 Fr Hellraiser comes with EMG active pickups I believe, did you try replacing the battery? Also unscrew the ends of your 1/4 inch instrument cable and make sure they are soldered properly. I am assuming you are going straight to your amp, not through any pedals?

Static Noise from guitar amp.

I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.

Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.
