Not that that's saying much
I was just fiddling around with a whammy pedal and a stereo delay when I was suddenly hit with an Idea. I knew that somebody else had probably already thought of this, but I didn't care; I hadn't heard of anybody else doing it, so (from my perspectave) it was my Idea. I quickly unplugged my guitar and got to work.
As some of you may already know, when you plug a whammy pedal into itself, it starts feeding back. By "plug into itself" I mean plugging a cable from the output to the input; the dry output goes to the amp. I don't know how it works this way, but it does. Some strange noises come out of it, mostly under the two "detune" settings. So I had an Idea (yes, with a capitol "I") to put an self-oscillating (sp?) delay through a whammy pedal that was plugged into itself
The cables go like this:
from the whammy dry output -> amp.
from the whammy wet output -> input of stereo delay (my stereo delay has only 1 input).
from the stereo delay's first output -> another amp.
from the stereo delay's second output -> whammy input.
Turn the delay on so that it starts to self-oscillate, then turn on the whammy (my favorite functions for this are "divebomb" and "drop tune") and have fun! I doubt I'll ever find a practical purpose for it, but maybe one of you will.
And (just out of curiosity) has this been thought of/posted before?
Very old stage rig
Mourn not the dead
that in the cool earth lie...
But rather mourn the apathetic throng
the cowed and the meek
Who see the world's great anguish
and its wrong and dare not speak.
