    Hey all.

    I've got a few pedals on a daisy chain, nothing crazy - well under total mA and all that, no noise. Some of the pedals are in a bypass strip, so those are always on. My Musket is 2nd in line, and whenever it's switched in at the same time as any pedal after it there is an enormous volume spike. It's not an issue with the pedal before the musket, though. Any ideas?

    Change it's location in your chain

    Ok, do you think the musket should go at the end? (All the cables are cut to length right now, trying to avoid as much trial & error as I can)

    Well, what else is in your chain?
    Tuner, volume, octavers, od, distortion, fuzz, modulation, delay is the "typical" order, but any order works for different people.

    Oh, I'm pretty happy with where it is audio-wise, and it wasn't having this problem before I wired everything up. I was thinking I could either give it its own power supply or move it to last on the daisy chain.

    Regrettably, trial and error is the only way.
