question about a pedal board.

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by slapinandpopin7, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. Im trying to find a way to make my pedal board have "2 channels", but still use the effects loop on the head. if this works im gonna end up getting a chorus pedal and another boss geb 7. i want one channel to have a boss geb7 and the chorus pedal(clean), and the other channel to have another geb 7 and a bass overdrive(overdrive). so basicaly i would turn all of them on, and have on switch to switch between the clean and overdrive channels. is this possible? what would i need to buy to be able to do it, i was thinking an A/B box but im not quite sure.

    thanks in advance,

    You wouldn't need 2 GEB-7's. Just go Bass -> GEB-7 -> A/B Box -> A=Overdrive, B=Chorus -> Amp.

    Well I think that's what you mean? Unless you want different settings on ther GEB-7, then that should work.

    EDIT: Oh, in the FX loop. In that case, Bass -> Amp. Effects Loop Send -> GEB-7 -> A/B Box -> A=Overdrive, B=Chorus -> Effects Loop Return.

    Apart from that would give you two signal A and B

    You need either a Boss LS-2 or a Loooper ( these units give you multiple effect loops that you can switch between or bypass in one stomp

    Hope this helps
  4. Thanks, one question: if the chorus is the thing that goes to the effects return, then if i was on the overdrive channel how would that signal go back to the amp? and i was going to use 2 geb7s for a eq thing in each channel.
  5. woah those looopers are awsome, the arrows and output things at the top are for like a mini effects loop pretty much, right? not quite sure i never have heard of them before

    thanks alot,

    Ah yes, see what you mean. I'm confused lol, I don't have experience in this matter, it was just theoretical. Guess I didn't think it through enough :p
  8. yea its wicked confusing, but those loooper things work out that problem, thanks for your help

    Yep. Looopers are cool. I have a two loooper, with an extra input on one of the loops so that I can blend direct signal with distortion, and get screaming distortion while keeping my lows.

    I am getting ready to order a mini A/B so that I can ditch my huge Morley A/B/Y box.

    Embellisher, are you happy with your dod fx75c stereo flanger, as i have an eye on one? In harmony-central, there's almost very good reviews and many people say that with this little box you have of course a flanger but a chorus and a phaser all together and a wide range of sounds, is it your impression?

    The effect is pretty subtle on bass, unless you put an overdrive or distortion unit in front of it to drive it.

    I only use it for a couple of songs, and both also require distortion, and it does the job very well.

    There are probably better flangers out there designed for bass, but I haven't had any reason to replace it.
