  • What pedal can let me "blend" my clean signal, with an effect box?

    Well, sorry if the title is hard to read,

    what I mean is-

    Is there a pedal, that I plug into (firstly), that has a "blendable loop" where I can put a fuzz (or any pedal)-

    then from there, to my amp? And adjust the output signal from "100% clean to 100% effected".

    I'd like to experiment with this, to blend in some clean tone with my fuzz box. Hope there are some (resonably) affordable solutions!

    Gig Rig do the Wetter Box, which I think would do what you want.


    Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it's a plan!

      Though it's probably not that cheap! lol

        I had a pedal that did this "onboard", the EHX "Bass Muff"

        It sounded cool even for electric guitar. I lost it when the apartment owner (where I moved from) decided to throw out all my stuff. Has contacted my lawyer, but the apartment owner (the government) refuses to answer.

        anyway.

        I wish my new "Octavix" had the same "clean blend" control, cause it can be a bit "too much" for everything, but very simple (one note, or powerchord) riffs.

        thanks.

          All that I'd "really" need though,

          is a passive pot, to blend the signal, and then "connect it together" again before going to amp. ? :/

          well. I did guess that a "real" blend pedal, would cost my shirt. I might be as happy just fuzzin' along. .

            Heh this is me flexing my privilege again but this is why I run two amps almost all the time. One set to "almost dirty" and the other to be clean and handle my pedals.

              you ... lucky man .

              I'd love to have two MkII's... But I cannot afford.

              (well I can, but then to break my budget for 4-5 months...)

              I'd rather have a blend knob!

              and maybe another portable, battery powered amp. My neighbor, meth-amp whore, stole my battery powered Roland Cube.

              I asked her: "Do you KNOW what it's WORTH?"

              and she replied: "ah, just a tiny bag...."

                I think the Boss LS-2 can do this with the fuzz in one loop and a guitar patch cable connecting the other loop.
                Oh no.....


                Oh Yeah!

                    I just spent my last cash. on an extension 1x12" cab for my Blackstar Ht-20mkII combo....

                    So no money left for anything, but food :/ and toilet rolls.

                    Thanks guys.

                      LS-2 is perfect for just that job. Around 70€ here used and 120 € new from thomann.

                      I now actually use Big Muff in the loop of Vapor Trail. Works as blend with delay at 0 and makes great addition when using delay too. (at least for the stuff I do).

                        Xotic X-Blender does this, and is a great pedal, though not on the cheap side. I love mine.

                        An alternative is to use a loop-based noise gate, with the gate wide open, though that only provides a simple on-off of the looped pedals, not a blend.

                          Saturnworks Blender Looper will do what you want. $79 new; there's one on eBay for $69.

                            You canít blend signals passively like that. Also sometimes the output of a pedal is out of phase with the input.

                            Thereís some pedals out there for doing this.

                            Personally I always found that clean guitar mixed with distortion sounds like sh!t unless itís with bass, since bass players generally use a fairly clean sound.

                              I've found that Fuzz are always too fuzzy for me, leaving only usable options a hair above 0. With blending I get much wider usable range from them.
