SOURCE: This is for the takamine

Most of the pedals are daisy chained right from the guitar. The output of the daisy chain goes into the DI box set to ground lift. An XLR to XLR cable goes from the DI box to the amp or mixer. Do NOT try to loop the sends and receives of the amp through PEDALS! The sends and receives are LINE LEVEL which is too high for pedals. The sends and receives are for external effects MODULES and EQ's that take line level. Some of those effect units have a foot switch to turn them on and off.

SOURCE: The correct order for Effects pedals.

Personally, I like to have all "tone effects", such as wahs, distortions and equalizers in front of "time effects" such as phasers, chorus, flangers and delays. See my set up in the photo. Guitar input is from right to left, starting with the wah pedal.

Difference between multi effects guitar pedal and pedal board?


Assuming I understand you correctly, both setups have their advantages. Multi-effects pedals generally are cheaper than arranging a number of individual pedals, and they'll only need one power supply. However, you'll them be stuck with that one brands version of the fx, and in most cases, the order the effects are in the device. If you do your own pedalboard, you can have various companies fx and line them up as you like. You can buy expensive ones and inexpensive ones and then change them out as your budget and needs change.

How To Use The effect Loop?


The effect loop is to use exteernal effect module... It is NOT to use guitar pedals !!!! The signals are line levels, NOT guitar type levels. An example of a device might be an Alesis Quadraverb. You take the effect send jack and run it into the inout of the effects module and the output of the effects module into the effects return jack. Many try to use guitar pedals and massive distortion results because levels are too high for the pedals.

Hi , i have a Bugera 1960 and my problem is send-return...when i put my boss ge-7 equalizer in it i can t hear the fx and this is the same thing for my delay pedal...i can hear but realy realy little...


The problem is the BOSS is designed to handle a guitar level at -20Db and the effects level is designed to run at either -10 Db or +4 Db. You will get better match setting the Bugerra effects to the -10 setting on the back and reducing the level... HOWEVER the pedal will want to send -20Db out which is 10 Db under what the effects return wants to see. This is a factor of three roughly in gain so the signal will be low. This is the problem using a guitar pedal in a way it wasn't designed to be used. The effects loops are looking for "line level" NOT guitar levels.

Schematics aren't going to help. The normal thing is to connect your guitar to the pedal and send the output of the pedal to the amp.

Guess what? The same things apply to your delay pedal... they are intended to accept the signal from the guitar OR the guitar like level from another pedal such as the GE7.

Buzzing noise when not playing


All amplifiers make a little bit of noise (hiss) but it is normally slight and drowned out by playing. However, assuming that this is not normal system hiss, here are a few simple steps to try and locate the source of the problem by process of elimination.
  1. SAFETY FIRST - a common cause of a humming or buzzing sound can be a lack of earth (grounding) on the mains supply. With a 240volt AC supply this hum will be at 50hz (in the UK) - frequency may vary in other countries but should be similar. Check the earth first because of risk of electric shock. Until you are satisfied that this is not the cause of the problem DO NOT touch any metal parts of the amp. Remove the mains lead and try a different one. Try plugging the amp into a different mains outlet socket (preferably one on a completely different circuit).
  2. Turn off other electrical equipment in the vicinity that may be causing interference. Move the amp a bit, try rotating it by 90 degrees to change relationship to things like mains electric cables in the floor.
  3. If you are using the line-out socket to give a feed to a mixer, slave amp or p.a. system unplug this. Sometimes double earthing (through the mains lead of your amp AND the mains lead of the MIXER / PA) will cause an 'earth loop' due to a different resistance at each end. Putting a DI box with an 'earth lift' in between may eliminate this problem. Alternatively there are little gadgets you can buy to do this (I found one intended for car audio systems on Amazon that works very well)
  4. Unplug any instrument leads - to eliminate possibilities of interference affecting cables, effects pedals or guitar pick-ups. Also unplug the foot-switch.
  5. If that stops it plug a lead in without a guitar on the other end - does the noise return? If yes change the lead. If no plug the guitar in.
  6. Try moving the guitar in relation to the amp (turn it around 90 or 180 degrees) - this will be pick-up to amp power supply interference.
  7. Does the sound get better or worse if you touch metal parts of the guitar with your hand? This may be a screening issue within the lead or the guitar itself.
  8. Try turning all the individual channel tone and gain controls to zero, turn off any effects on the amp panel. If that eliminates it only turn up the controls on channels that you are actually using.

Where should the Zoom G1X go in a pedal chain?


From an electrical engineering standpoint, an expression or volume pedal should be near the end of the chain so that the other effects don't try to process very weak signals when the volume is very low.

This gives better signal to noise ratio.
