I just opened up the pedal and played with it. So far it is totally worth the money with one caveat. I can't stop the pedal from squawking. No matter how I set the decay, the resonance, and the frequency, there's still a loud thump every time the pedal picks up my playing. I'm not sure if it'll get picked up once I try it with my band in a couple weeks, but alone at home, it is barely noticeable at best and annoying at worst. Any suggestions? What causes this? Am I doomed to forever have that volume spike? If this explanation isn't adequate, I'll make some clips.
