Boss SYB-3 trouble; normal?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Bernardduur, Jan 14, 2006.

  1. Hello all

    I have a question. I just got a SYB-3 for cheap.
    In the manual I read that in mode 1-7 the pedal should track both pitch as attack but when I use mode 1-7 I basically get one sound that does not change in pitch.....

    Is this normal?

    No, as ornery a critter as the SYB-3 is, it still follows pitch when it's working properly. Sounds like yours was cheap for a reason.
  4. Have you tried to change battery or power supply to syb-3? Or could your instrument cable be broken some how?
  5. Yep, tried A LOT to fix it, still the same results.

    New findings:
    Mode 1, 4, 5 and 7 does not work. I get no sound out of it.

    Played with it at the guy's house before I bought it and it worked there......

    I've send it away to get it fixed.
