I have three pedals that have stereo options now: GigFX Chopper, Boss BF-3, Boss DD-6. I got the BF-3 today. The Chopper has one input and two outputs, the DD-6 has two inputs and two outputs, and the BF-3 has one input and two outputs. I originally had it set up so the Chopper came before the DD-6 and then that'd go straight to the amp. But now it seems that if I add the BF-3 to my set up, that can be the only pedal to be in stereo seeing as it's just like the Chopper by having only one input but two outputs. Is there something I'm overlooking? Any help would be appreciated.

i'd say hook em up in mono

it wont make any big difference if your not running two amps

But I am using two amps. A Fender Hot Rod Deville 410 and a Mesa Boogie head with Marshall 412 cabs. It makes a huge difference.

Here is my pedal set up:

Boss NS-2 (Send)
MXR Phase 90
Dunlop Original Crybaby
Boss GE-7
DigiTech WH-4
Electro Harmonix Mini Q-Tron
Boss NS-2 (Received back from the previous 5 pedals)
GigFX Chopper
Boss DD-6
Boss BF-3

So right now I think the order of the first bunch is fine.. But the last three are what is confusing me.

you should put the flanger before the delay
run your chain in mono
and then go in stereo from the flanger to the delay and from the delay to the amps

Yeah I thought about that actually. But that leaves the Chopper in mono.. So it's just a tremolo pedal, then. I bought it so I could pan between two amps, which requires stereo. So it's really important that I can utilize the stereo effect on the Chopper as well as the other two.

I doubt this is important, but the BF-3 does have two inputs.. One for guitar and one for bass. I didn't mention that before since I figured it was irrelevent.

i know
i checked on that
but i dont think it'll work with the bass input
well...you could just run the flanger in mono in front of the chopper
or
put the flanger in front of the chopper and use a Y-cable to get the stereo sound to the mono input of the chopper
or run it completely in mono (the flanger)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------read only below...

well the important thing for you is that you get to use the two outputs of the chopper to pan and the two outputs of the delay to use two amps
run the flanger in mono
will have the same effect...

Yeah that would make sense. I'll just use the stereo mode in the recording studio and mono live. Thanks for the help.

no problem...

good luck...

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but couldn't you just use them normally for the first amp, and run three cables from the stereo effects into the second amp (you'll need a simple 'joiner' here, to plug them into one jack)?
#18
Yeah, that makes sense. How much does a joiner cost? Could you link me somewhere please?
#20
Not much, you can get them from an electronics shop for a couple of quid.

You'd just need four jacks which are connected; very easy to make.

Yeah, but the BF-3 has two outputs for stereo and the Chopper only has one input.

Put the Chopper first, so it'll split the signal, and the two parts of the signal can be ran through both the stereo pedals.

It's really sad how much tone you're loosing running so many pedals into those amps


some people like a more synthetic out there sound. But yeah multiple Boss pedals have a tendency to cause quite a bit of tone loss.

BTW, i would put the chopper last and run the other stuff mono, unless you are runing into a mixing board then run everything in stereo.
