I need to dumb down my pedal set up. I want to hook my obel guitar cable into my
pedal chain. Does anybody have pics of how you are connecting your double cable to your chain?
Sorry but I just can't get this down to an easy plug and play. Any help would be nice. Sorry I am in over my head.

Thanks

Need more details... do you have a mono cable and a stereo cable together for the guitar? Y cable or breakout box?

Y cable out of OBEL: Wired per waldo you would plug the RED side of split to input of effects (chaining any others in line) and the WHITE side of the split to the OUT of the last effect. If you get no sound switch the cables around. The single end plugs into appropriate jack on guitar. The other guitar jack gets regular cable run to amplifier.

This may not be what your asking, but it is the basic line. A breakout box or tb loop pedal doesn't change the order, just somewhat simplifies it (e.g. breakout can have a TRS jack so a Y cable isn't nec'y)

I have the set up like Hippie guy's photo. I have AO's wheel pedal. Still not working.
How would I plug in with out the wheel pedal? Mono goes where and The other cable goes where?
I think the wheel box is bad so I need to set up without it.

update.. I set up with out the wheel and used the SBK pedal board! No hiss just clean sound.
Thanks for the tips they worked. On a side note I have an FYD amp I am not using think there would be some interest in it?
