what would cause a split second loss of sound , at the time i was running two od's , and a comp pedal. my amp is a mazerati 1x12 combo , this has never happened before , and the night before i insatalled a weber coppertop ss rectifier , i only mention this because it's the only change ive made in my rig , and this has never happened before hand. ive checked all my george l cables from the guitar to the amp , no shorts or breaks.

What kind of cord are you using between your guitar and the pedal board? I once had the exact same thing happen, and it turned out that the cable had a specific design feature that enabled this exact behavior.
it's a monster cable , thing is about the size of a jumper cable , paid good money for , supposed to be top of the line , i dunno , it does brag of a lot more material used to make it than the average cord , or even a george l for that matter.

That's not likely it then. I had an incident with a Planet Waves - those plugs with the springs built in. The spring is supposed to make sure contact is maintained, but in my case it caused a discontinuity for a moment. Since you aren't using those, it must be something else. No other ideas here...
well thank's for the reply anyway , i'll keep checking , and guessing , i don't see why , but i wonder if im just slamming the amp to hard at that split second , and something is reacting in a negative way just for a half second? both times it happened it was right at the end of a sustained note , you know one of them deal's where you squeeze all you can out of one for grin's and giggles , could be a wierd comp thing , im using the new barber tone press , and it's only happened with it on. not saying that's what it is , just wondering.

Sounds a bit like a noise gate issue I had once. I had some rack effects that had built-in noise gate in the pre-sets. At the end of a long, sustained note with distortion, the gate would cut in and abruptly silence the sound. Eventually, I figured out how to get rid of (or tweak) the noise gate so that didn't happen anymore. Don't know if any of your effects might have something like that.
