    After not using my Deep Imapct for a year, I'm getting back into it and was surprised how noisy the unit is. During the rests/spaces between notes, it is dead silent but when I'm playing notes, the background noise level seems excessive.

    Does anyone else have this problem ?

    It's one of the reasons I sold all three I've ever owned.

    Hey. I had a similar problem with mine after not playing it for a while. The output was all of a sudden very very low (no matter how hot the input was) and there the patches all of a sudden had a background fuzz that shouldnt have been there. I thought it was broken and was going to take it to the tech or sell it for cheap then I cleaned the input and output jacks. To my great surprise, this fixed the problem.
