If you use a volume pedal, how have you hooked it into your signal chain?
being a effects noob, but having a decent 'common sense'(not only meaning I smell ordinary, but also being able to think logically)
this is what i conclude:
if it'd go before the preamp, you would increase the signal, thus overdriven the gain, when pressing the pedal, so that would be a nono
Most volume pedals don't boost the signal, only limit it, so that nono wouldn't be a nono.
But he is wrong, so that nono that isnt a nono is actually a nono.
Mines in the effects loop.
I still say that nono that isn't a nono that's suddenly a nono again is suddenly a yes-yes (Meaning its ok to run your volume before your preamp -- less confusing way to say it)
My setup: bass -> Custom EHX Big Muff -> BOSS BF-2 Flanger -> Morley Wah -> Morley Volume -> GK 400RB-III. No problem.
I along with many others prefer to run the pedals straight in bypassing the effects loop. It does have it's drawbacks, but rarely an issue for me.
a volume pedal in between every other effects pedal!!
