I got Guitar Center to pricematch zZounds on the BOSS carrying case I mentioned; that knocked $20 off. I picked that up along with some instrument cables and an AC adaptor after work today. They keep that place staffed pretty well; the guy that helped me (Christian) steered me to exactly to what I was looking for and made things quick.

I hope to have purchased a TU-2 within the next week so that the two pedals now in the case will have company!

I hooked everything up and got a pretty nice, smooth sound with both the LMB-3 and CE-2B active (in that order). The TU-2 will end up being the first pedal in the chain.
