Gtoledo3 Posted February 13, 2003 Share Posted February 13, 2003 Ok- why am I not posting this in the guitar forum? Because this is a thread about using guitar effects in abnormal ways...on other instruments, or to make a guitar sound like a synth/garbled mess. I'll give up a trick first, to get the ball rolling. Go to the radio shack and get yourself a wall wart power supply- the one that has about six diferrent connectors, including a pad that will connect to the 9V battery pad inside of your effects, if they don't have power supply inputs already. Now, when a wah wah pedal is starved of almost all of it's power, it will emit dolphin like cried by itself, without any input source. This works like a charm on my Jimmy Hendrix wah- it actually works a little better when I just let the battery almost die out. The radio shack supply gives a little too much power, but I can still get the effect. Try this method with any effect...you'll be surprised at the wide variety of tones you can get. My guess is that most guitar pedals can withstand working on less power w/out much problem, because I've been doing this for years. Want mix/tracking feedback?
