Filters and distortion
I don't remember where I read this, but it was something like this:
"There's a time in a guitarist gearhead discovering the simplicity of
chained alternated distortion and filtering."
When I found this I bought two Behringer EQ700 equalizer pedals and a
OD300 distortion. That gave me lots of fun for a while. Then I tried
to chain the EQ->DIST->EQ with another distortion, the Boss DS-1.
It seems as if the boss acts as a gate, which gives a staccato dynamic
to playing an otherwise wildly messed up sound. I love it!
It seems that the gating is actually not due to the DS-1. I'm feeding
4 pedals from a single 9V using a daisy chain cable so this might
cause some unusual effects.
The gating is nice. Very expressive to have the silence vs. messed up
whatever thing going on.
