What in all hell is the world coming to? First, we lose out on Twinkies, and then.... I have effects pedals?!? ....seriously? Lots of blame for this. The continued influence of my cronies, Jon and Steve, hearing some of these things used in really musicals ways, etc. But in many ways, this falls on our man, Greg. He told me last year, and reinforced it in his own store in June of this year...that'd I'd soon have a pedal board. And finally, he puts his Aggie stuff on sale. An evil man, he is. I admire that about him. So anyway, I've taken the plunge. I've yet to start really digging in, but last night I put together the pieces I've assembled for a photo: Already my CDO is rumbling over the cables, but I think I can get over that. For you veterans of such things, I'd be grateful for some input on the following: - Clean wiring and mounting advice. - Ideal order of devices in the signal chain. - Proper care and feeding, and anything else I'm missing. Thus far I've heard very compelling arguments for why the compressor should go first, and also why it should go last. Obviously I'll be experimenting, but I definitely appreciate words of wisdom from folks who've already invented this wheel. As always, thanks to Greg, for objective advice and an ever-positive buying experience. Hit me, folks!
