Help with my pedalboard

my current pedalboard set up is as follow : (from amp) -> Yamaha dg stomp -> Vox Wah -> Digitech Whammy -> (guitar)

 

The issue is that both my wah and whammy suck tone. Maybe i can mod my wah to be true bypass but then im concern bout the subsequent deteriorated tone. Is there any ways which i can bypass the whammy or the wah when not in used? It's all for the convenience when playing live..

 

Help needed!

you can buy a TB looper for the tone sucking pedals.. Either have both in one loop- or a separate loop for each pedal.. All depends how you use them..

TB = true bypass

 

i had my whammy in a TB loop and noticed a lot of hum. could have been a ground loop issue, but i never could figure it out. i wasn't content to live with it, and now the whammy is off the board.

 

the wah will be fine with a TB mod. the whammy you'll just have to experiment with. when its on, it sounds fine, but its always processing your signal, even when its off.

oh man.. any other ideas for bypassing the whammy? OR a good TB pedal to recommend?

 

 

the problem with bypassing the whammy is that its "bypass" switch has a calibration function. so if you take that calibration function out, then you'll never hit the intervals you need to. the TB loop really is the best option. a lot of people have used it without any problems, but mine just didn't seem to get along with it.
