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.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
