And it hurt, a lot.

I had my Peavey Rage 158 (which I play when my Peavey Valveking 212 is too loud to be played on; i.e. when people are home) plugged in to a power block, and ran a cord from the amp to a Digitech Metal Master; I ran a cord from that to what would usually be my guitar. However, the end of the cord wasn't plugged into a guitar, nor was it touching anything but the floor. I went to move it with my foot, to make room to play guitar through the Valveking, and my foot hurt. I THOUGHT I might've been shocked, but that's never happened before. I went to unplug the cord from the pedal, and it shocked my entire arm, and that hurt much, much more.

You get the idea. Anyone know WHY this is happening ? I shut off the power block, just now, and unplugged everything (without touching the metal ends of the cords) including the amplifier.

It was kind of cool to feel my heart skip a beat or two, though.

usually the amp is the problem.

either that or the wires in the wall, and a combination of a faulty ground in guitar.

BUT the amp is the main problem. should be unplugged and serviced.
