I have a Behringer distortion pedal and a Behringer Flanger pedal and a tuner.....

I want to make a very simple pedal board....and i emphasize the word SIMPLE

I know that I have to connect each pedal n' tuner together using patch cables, so

If it were to go :
( - means 'connects to')

GUITAR - PEDAL 1 - PEDAL 2- TUNER - POWER SUPLY - AMP

have i done it correctly??

Is that as easy as that?? or is there a catch, and what kind of power supply should I get to power my 2 pedals and tuner??

Well the tuner needs to be in the VERY front, it has to tune the un altered signal, but the order of the pedals is personal preference. Like if you have a distortion and flanger, well if you like your distorted sound to be flanged, the you put the distortion in front of the flange, but if you like your flanged sound to be distorted, then the flanger would be first.

BUT Tuner should be the very first pedal.

i have to do this:

you need better pedals to justify a pedal board. i personally wouldn't spend the time for those three pedals. that said, the flanger is probably decent as behringer are the most digital thing you can get.

the power supply connects to all the pedals in no particular order. it goes like this:

power supply: each pedal.

you can get like a daisychain, they run at 450 mA, which should be plenty for you.

I was just using Flanger and distortion as an example, I have no clue what pedals he actually has.

Haha, well, I dont think the power supply actually counts as part of the chain, since it just plugs into the top of the pedals.

How about I just post a picture of a small pedal board?



Ok, say lets say the blue pedal is your tuner,

The orange is your PEDAL 1

and the red is PEDAL 2

Just ignore the brown one. But the power supply is the little cord plugging into the top of that chorus, Im not sure where it plugs into those MXRs, but I do believe the thing above the brown pedal is the power supply, running a daisy chain I believe, Im not sure though I've never saw a power supply like the one in the pic.

But see, the power supply isnt actually in the chain of effects, it just powers them.

Double-Post... But here is the diagram


             POWER SUPPLY
             /    |      \
            /     |       \
GUITAR - TUNER - PEDAL 1 - PEDAL 2 - AMP

Yeah dude don't waste time and money on a pedalboard for 3 pedals, wait til you own something that justifies it.
#12
right so, i have some questions!!

1. is this correct? in the photo
2. What do i use for parts '1.' and '2.' which connect the pedals to the power supply
3. where do i plug it into my amp??

(not a real power supply, just for example purposes!)

I have that tuner - It doesn't plug into an amp. It's not meant to. If you want a tuner to be with pedals, you're best off to get a Boss TU pedal. That's just a normal tuner.

IS THIS IT!"!!!!!!! I THINK IVE GOT IT, FINALLY

(just pretend that the tuner has another jack socket, as i will soon be getting a better one with jack in/out-puts)

Dude, putting pedals before the tuner ****s with the signal and makes the note more difficult for the tuner to read.

Put the tuner before the pedals. Seriously, we know our shit.

EDIT: Most pedals also tend to have the input on the right side, and output on the left.

Dude, didn't you read what i said? That tuner cannot plug in an amp. I have it - It has one input slot, for your guitar. If you want a pedal tuner, look into a boss one.

might as well use velcro to affix the pedal to a MUCH LARGER board than needed, as i bet you will buy more pedals pretty soon!

i dont justify making a board for less than 4/5 pedals, i have quite a few bulky units on mine....
