Hi, the ashdown pedals all seem to have this problem. The Ashdpwn drive plus as an overdrive can be expected to produced some noise but along side my OBD3 or envelope my El grande bass fuzz it's producing a pronounced hiss. The reviews across ultimate guitar, musicians friend, and gear slutz all mention this about ashdown pedals.
A real shame because outside they are like brick shot houses.
Thanks fort he comment
