    I want to get an effect pedal for my amp. I am not sure where it plugs in or if it even will? <<<<=Stupid
    I want a wah-wah pedal, but is there something special I have to have to plug it in to my amp? :smug:
    After looking at a picture of an effect pedal, I see and input cord hole and an output hole? How does this work?

    Thanks A Lot

    ooh, ok thanks alot. :)
  4. And for more effects, you just string them along, bass into the first one, then a short patch cord from its output to the next pedal's input, and so on, until you finally go into the amp. The order will make a difference.
