guitar-->maxon od9-->isp deci.-->amp

right?

also, what would be smarter...a dimarzio coupler 6" cord or the little monster 1/4" coupler piece?

I generally like the patch cables for effects, they give you a bit more flexibility in placing your effects, where the coupler needs them to be in a straight line.

I thought it was Amp>Whatever>ISP>Guitar?
Like having the NS last, unless theres a wah, then the wah would go last and the NS would go before the wah.

I always ran it in my FX loop last after my delay so it was the very last pedal in the chain before the power amp stage cutting ALL noise out.

It depends exactly how you wanna use it though. I used it to get rid of amp noise and pedal noise not feedback.

Something people overlook is the fact that the more volume you play with the les gain you need. I used to set my volume to suit the venue then set the gain so it was just under the feedback threshold, somethimes I'd only have my preamp gain on like 3-4 with a 5150 and 6505 and it was plenty. It cuts through the mix better too. Still had all the sustain in the world. Id doesnt hide any sloppy playing though if you do it like this . . . . .

I always do ISP first. A little pedal hum is worth it for extra sustain IMO.


I do this but I also rely on a volume pedal for my clean sound a lot of the time so if I put it anywhere else I'd just kill my sound instead of getting a clean tone.

To be honest I'd love to have on of the Pro-Rack G Decimators but they cost somewhere in the region of £300 new over here

You should put the decimator before any effects, otherwise it will just remove too much (delay or reverb etc).
Effects generally don't create much noise, it's the guitar and the pre-amp that do. Just put it after the guitar (or maybe after OD / distortion pedal) or first in your FX loop.

I'm actually considering a G-string decimator so my chain can go:
Guitar>Decimator>Effects>Decimator G-string>Amp>Effects Loop>Decimator G-string>Speaker
That way I can eliminate as much noise as possible without losing sustain

I already loose sustain with only the ProRackG so I would not recommend using 2 noise gates in your loop... Unless your effects create a lot of noise (ie feedback) I would put the G-String before them.

also, if like me you the majority of your pedals connect from the back as opposed to side by side... you'll have a few difficulties arranging your pedalboard if you use couplers...
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

It's only one. That's the point of the G-String:

The G-String is like the ProRackG, I know. Horlicks mentioned another Decimator between his guitar & the effects, and then use the G-String between effects & amp and in the FX loop.

So then I don't have to either:
Put it post OD808, so I have to mute the feedback which has been boosted.
Put it Pre-OD808 and suffer hum

Still seems very overkill to me; with potted pickups if you put a normal Decimator between the guitar and Maxon you shouldn't get feedback at all anyway. I certainly don't and my S470 still has the stock pups in it.
