I'm sure my Yankee farmer ancestors are turning over in their graves.

It's one of the things that I can't stand about renting. There's a lot of things I want to do but can't since I don't own the place.

Thankfully my landlord is pretty chill with me doing little things, like replacing a switch or a garbage disposal.

My mother-in-law told her daughters to find a handyman. "Those college graduates can't even fix a toilet!". Her husband was a union plumber. Both daughters did well by her.

kissTheApex I'm trying to diagnose a weird problem with my guitar rig. My delay and reverb are in the effects loop of my Valveking - yesterday when I turned it on they were doing what sounded like this weird self-oscillation, like if you turn the repeats of an analog delay all the way up. I thought that both pedals might have given up the ghost but I plugged them straight into my bass amp and they work fine :foo:

So it turns out that having a big pedalboard is super fun until you have to figure out what's wrong with it :rolleyes:

I just hope it's not something wrong with my amp :(. We had a power surge that knocked out our garage door opener recently so I'm a tad bit concerned even though it sits behind a surge protector.

Are you in training to replace Pcad?

And don't forget the sump pump. Usually the first appliance to fail. Good luck even finding it.

@Velo Vol
Rode my bike, trimmed some bushes, mowed one of my lawns, did a load of laundry plus a load of workout gear, going to eat lunch now, do some grocery shopping, then a nap is in order.

Well, we're not immediately going code red. The feds would like us to, but our governor would rather direct his energies toward re-election, at least a year away. Power corrupts, FYI

Oh dear. I guess you're in it for the long haul.

I keep forgetting what stage of reopening we're in, and what exactly all the stages mean. They should really cover that in all local newscasts so there is at least a possibility of us all staying on the same page.

carp!

not very familiar with the valveking, but does it have its own reverb/tremolo etc that may have been turned on?

my next check would be to put the pedals straight in and make sure the oscillation only happens in Fx loop. Do you have anything else you can plug in to the fx loop to see anything changes?

we donít have one (thank the deities!). If we ever get a house with that, Iím getting a generator and a redundant sump pump :twitchy:

It does have it's own reverb, but it's totally separate from everything else - it seems to sit after the effects loop. I've got a DL4 and an analog delay from my bass rig that I should be able to try, that's a good idea.

I love and hate how complicated this thing is, if I can find a good program to draw schematics again I'll post the signal chain. There is some seriously weird stuff going on since my main distortion pedal is actually in the effects loop ;)

Just an fyi.

That's when you reply "yes, my ex-neighbors were angels too . . . but now I'm stuck with you people".

The Tool Man wasn't good at that stuff either. That's why he had Al. :)

2-stroke?

That was my normal too last time I rode regularly, maybe 25 on a frisky day.

80+ degrees for the rjones28 Family Bike Ride to the Farmers Market today.

Same. I'm totally confused. Regardless, I fear for mankind whenever I go to a public place and see groups of people huddled around like a single entity and unmasked.
