Hi All

I`m just after some technical advice, I recently bought a jemini distortion pedal and a bad horsie wah, I am going to add probably a little alligator volume pedal and a tuner and maybe some other effects, I just wondered is there a certain order that they should be connected in and can I link them all with one power pack? I`ve seen daisy chain power supplies on line but are they compatable for all pedals ?

Any advice appreciated

Regards

Bob

All the pedals listed are DC 9v

So you can daisy chain all of them together


If you're going to get a tuner- I'd recommend a Boss TU-3- because it has a daisy chain output and can power up to 9 pedals on its own.

It's a good tuner and great as a power supply so i'd definitely get one and use it over a cheap power supply with daisy chain.

the order is up to you- and experimenting
you will get a drastically different sound putting the jemini before or after the wah

The typical way would be- Tuner>Wah>Distortion>Volume>amp
although you could put the volume in front- or at the end.

or not even plug the gutiar into the tuner- if some pedal like a Ernie Ball Volume is used- it has a tuner out then the tuner gets plugged in and isn't in your chain at all- there's a lot of ways to do it all

The Bad Horsie is the best wah out there

thanks Jeries

yes the bad horsie wah is awesome, thanks for the advice about the boss tuning pedal I take it its negative polarity to match the wah, are they all negative polarity/earth?

I`ve had multi processors in the past but you don`t seem to get the same control over them so I just want to link 4 or 5 pedals together, are there any pedal boards that you can recommend?

Regards

Bob

i had some weird noises coming from my jemini. I thought oh shit, I can't believe I broke it. Just in case anybody ever wondered whats inside the "bullet proof" pedal. So I did what the label on the back said not to do and...

I can't believe I spent $200 on this lol. The rattling was one of these two little springs at the bottom of the pedal, one fell off and kept rattling the insides. I really have no idea what the springs do beside keep tension on the cover. And I really hope that there wasn't a reason that the cover said "do not remove screws". I've done it before so I guess there really is no reason. And those springs are. Annoying I had to tape them in place whatever they do. And why are my pictures so damn big?
