New to using effects, and having some trouble
Hey guys. I just bought my first real effect pedal a couple weeks ago. The Darkglass VMT, and I didn't realize it didn't come with a power supply, so I went ahead and ordered one which arrived today.
Now, when I plug everything in I get absolutely no sound. The light comes on the VMT, and when I turn it off, the passthrough works just fine, but with the pedal on, I get the blue light and no sound. I've fiddled with the knobs, and this seems the case at all settings.
Am I just missing something? Or did I get bad pedal?
I'm not one to just go returning something, because it's generally not fair to the company that made it, so I want to exhaust all my resources before I send this back.
Additionally, I'm with the US Army, stationed in Korea, so getting this back out, and a new one to me, could take upwards of two months, which I am not really willing to wait.
Is there a way to test if it's a certain issue? I do have some electronics repair experience, but nothing like pedals. I've mostly worked on desoldering and soldering PCBs. That said, if it's an issue I can fix, I can probably fix it, but I'd need to find out what the issue is first.
