Any ideas as to whats goin on?
Same thing happened to me and all I got was noise coming out of the box.
When I first got the pedal ( over 2 Years ago ) it made a really loud pop when I adjusted the Master pot but that disappeared after a while.
A few weeks ago I was going to put some bass lines on a recording so I turned it on and when I started to adjust some of the pots (Mid Freq and Mid Level) I heard a scratching sound and then suddenly there was no sound coming out of it, only low noise.
I talked to Aguilar and they say that it is a faulty pot and NOT a common problem.
I hadn't used the Pre amp for several months prior to this happened.
Seems like the pots Aguilar are using are not top quality.
I use the Phantom power and not batteries or adapter.
