Help! Momentary pedal chain freak out!
So this weekend, after one complete soundcheck and one complete set, my pedalboard decided to become possessed and turn against me
In the first few bars of the first song of the 2nd set, sudden loud popping, booming, complete loss of signal, and utter shock and embarrassment occurred. I ripped my tuner off, and went direct into that to the di box, and kicked my pedalboard to the curb for the whole 2nd set
Believed it was either one of my first two pedals or one of my first two patch cables, so I removed those in between sets, and all was well for my pedalboard for the 3rd set (besides the fact that I had no octaver or overdrive!)
Problem is, I just plugged the same two pedals and patch cables back in, and there's no problem. At all.
Was something just loose? Is one of my patch cables going bad? Power cable? Was there a gnome in my power brick? Am I just crazy?
(For the record I use fixed end patch cables, not the DIY kits or unsoldered ends or anything. If i did, I feel like that would have explained it)
