So I bought this pedal off a TB'er and when I got it I started having some problems with it. I run most of my pedals off of wall warts but I was running this on batteries temporarily. When I put a battery in and turned it on, everything was good for a few minutes then it shut itself off. It wouldn't come back on so I swapped with a new battery. It came on and worked for a couple days of intermittent use but I was hearing hum and random clicks that I thought might be glitches with one of the digital pedals. Wasn't a huge deal. So after about a day, I go to turn my pedals and rig on and I get this huge wall of white static noise and pops which I thought was going to blow my speaker, but luckily no damage happened before I was able to mute it. So I take out the battery and put it back in, take it out of the signal chain and plug it in separately. This is where I discover where the noise and clicks are coming from. After a couple minutes it starts to distort and shuts itself off again. At this point I plug in to one of the wall warts from another pedal to see if I can replicate these issues. No joy. It's quiet, it doesn't click or pop, and it doesn't shut itself off. I'm thinking that this pedal just eats batteries and doesn't run very well on them. I think the noise was caused by a low battery charge. In the FAQ for this pedal it says that they recommend a rechargeable battery. I'm thinking this is their way of saying "This pedal eats batteries like Oprah eats cupcakes". But if this pedal doesn't do well with batteries, why do they make such a big deal about how easy it is to change the battery? Why even make it a point. And why not tell people that it doesn't perform well on batteries? This is all assuming that the battery was the cause, but with the troubleshooting, it definitely points to the battery. What do you guys think?
