    So this is what goes into it, I had the wah and the compressor the rest is on it's way:


    Any tips on how to best connect things? What goes in front, and what goes in the loop? I will be happy for suggestions, I haven't used pedals for a loong time :D

    I'll report back whan I get the stuff, as to if I get any mojo out of it ;)

    Put the delay and maybe the chorus in the loop. I don't know what that Valeton pedal is - if it's a volume pedal, try it in the loop, before the delay. The rest- put in front. Guitar>tuner>wah>overdrive>compressor>amp.

    These are just suggestions, based on how I set up effects. It doesnt make it right or wrong, you can experiment with any order you want.

    why would put the volume before the delay in this case?
    a cascading delay effect?

    I'm guessing to prolong the decay after a volume drop... that's what I'd do too.

    Right on... I know very little about it. I'm not really a pedal guy. Just have a tuner and a wah.

    Yep, you guys figured it out. If you put the volume before the delay in the loop, you still get the decaying effect. If you put it after, then it shuts everything down. It all depends on personal preference.

    Haha, thanks for hi-jacking the thread! Got some useful info from it :applause: Anyway, the pedalboard arrived and I assembled it velcro and all, may swap some pedal back and forth but I'm only testing it at home now(with my Code 100H). The real test is with the DSL20HR at rehearsal. These NUX pedals sounds awesome anyway, really well defined and crisp sound in all of them!

    Wow, nice small board indeed :drool: I have the Cerberus of Nux, and it is also a very interesting pedal. I use it in my rehearsals for the direct connection to the mixer, and use the 4 cable method to plug in my Mini Jube... Amazing I can say.

    we usually wait for the conversation to die down before we hi jack. sorry for hi jacking early.
    you took it well and it shows you too are a good sport for our hijinks.

    I like that pedal board. been thinking about doing a mini myself when the $$ allows.
    perfect for grab n go situations.

    Thanks man! I listened to the hi-jackers advice and put the delay after the volume pedal, very smart move, now I can make the guitar sound like a church organ which is really cool :dude:

    Hah, my old compressor gave up, no wonder it's 30+ years old. It started to give out random intermittent buzzing/crackling sounds, signaling electronic component failure of some kind. So I needed a replacement for having a boost function on my mini pedalboard.

    The choice was EHX Soul Food, and it is an improvement as far as I can tell. I don't need a compressor, really, I just need a boost and Soul Food really does it nice and raw. It's not transparent, not even at 0 drive, but it adds body and sparkle which is exactly what I need during solos/melody parts. Add the TS-clone in the chain and the distorsion gets compact and bold. Just tested at home for now, the real test is at rehearsal with my DSL, but it sort of feels like the definitive improvement I was looking for. The only thing I wonder is, if I only need the green channel from now on? Meaning I should have bought a one channel Origin instead of a DSL , ahh never totally happy, but the DSL has sounded great so far :)
