Im not impressed with those cables Tim, did you get them at the local Car Boot Sale? marked up Buy one for £1 and get the other 9 free? :lol:

One thing i did invest in, and it has paid dividends is high quality cables, i got the best i could afford and they really do make a difference.

:lol: Yeah, if you remember a while back I was asking about cables, I think it was you who recommended Monster? I'm still in the market for some! At the moment when I cut out I just waggle the 4 jacks in turn until the sound comes back...it's not the best solution :oops:

Here’s the current incarnation of my set-up. I built the board myself out of plywood and hardware from All Parts. Amateur hour, I know, but it sounds good and is easy to operate while half drunk on a dark stage. All the send and return levels on the back of the preamp are adjustable. The DOD chorus is junk and will soon be replaced by a T.C. Electronic. A volume pedal and a Mutron are also on the wish list, but then I’ll have to build a bigger board.

Great post rewindspline - you’ve given me a case of pedal envy! I am, however, questioning the lack of ground-in beer dirt on your gear… :wink:

Im a bit worried about your Marshall amp footswitch and its lack of paint!
Looks like most people use a tube preamp at the start of the chain, might be something i'll look into.
Does it make that much difference to your rig? Angled 1/4" jacks on your patch leads would sort out your pedals pointing to all points on the compass problem :lol:

Hope you dont mind i edited your post so that it had a direct link to your URL rather than a cut and paste.

I had no idea 1/4" jacks suffered with that too.
And i dont beleive for a minute that you use that thing, hope this doesnt become your 'Tennis Tournament' (see1bassleft) .
:lol:

:lol: Is that better?!

And I assure you that is my patch lead, I'd have binned it by now if I wasn't using it!

Is there an Emoticon with a 'shaking head in disbeleif'?
