Furman power conditioner
X2 wireless (rackmount, bought before the pedal board system was available, and before Line6 bought them out).
Korg rackmount tuner.
TC G Maj.2
Voodoo GCX Audio Switcher. (used for a couple of stompboxes, and to switch channels on my Mesa Mark V)
On my pedal/control board I have a Ground Control Pro, a Mark Tremonti Wah (love it cuz it's instant on/off), a volume pedal, and an expression pedal for controling various fx of the Gmaj2.
Here is the problem: My sig path is too long for my liking. I have to run a 20 foot cable out of the rack to get to the pedal board to use my Vol pedal and wah, then 20 feet back to the rack. I built a nice all in one snake with Monster Cables, Midi cable, AC power, but I degrade my signal and create noise with the 40 feet of cable run.
I know many pro's use rack setups, and have wah pedals, volume pedals and other stomp boxes out front. How do you set something like that up? Of course, I know I could eliminate 20 feet by getting a pedal board wireless receiver (in fact, I could use 2 units and have NO cable run I guess...), but really don't want to drop $400 on that. I know I could use a volume control from the Gmaj2, but I'm not willing to give up my wah, and don't like the rack mount wah's I've tried.
Any other thoughts here? How do the pro's do it?
By the way, I know it says it's my first post, but I am a returning member from a few years ago with a new account. I used to be blisteredpinky, but I couldn't get that to come up again.
