Help with Dingbat with PX8 Switcher

Post by Jpcarcass » Fri Sep 08, 2017 10:41 pm

Hello, I got a Dingbat pedalboard with the switcher. I just opened it up and I was messing around on how I would organize the pedals so I do have some questions.

1) Are George L cables a good way to wire the board?

2) Do you guys secure the pedals with the supplied Velcro and that's it? Do people use anything else to secure the pedals?

Please let me know if the following signal flow (pedal order) makes sense.

Guitar-Tuner-Wah-Whammy-input-loop 1 Archer Overdrive-Loop 2 Tube Screamer- Loop 3 OCD- loop 4 phaser- loop 5 chorus- loop 6 boss dd3- loop 7 Carbon copy- loop 8 BBE to the volume pedal to the amp.

I am super new to pedalboards and I don't really understand them that well. I usually just daisy chain 2 or 3 pedals and that's it. This is my first pedalboard and I am super excited. I really want to make it as functional as possible and as clean as possible.

Thank you for all the help.

The George L's are a perfectly fine cable system to use for this. The hook and loop tape will hold the pedals quite well, but if you really want to secure them you can use large zip ties around the pedals as well. A secure alternative, but would be using 3M Dual Lock.

Your signal flow looks to make sense to me!

Be sure to send some pictures!
