Brand-New Pedal. Input Jack REALLY Stiff. Problem?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Slackerprince, Nov 22, 2010.

  1. I just got an MXR Bass Octave Deluxe and the input jack has a LOT of resistance to the cable-end going in.
    The pedal works fine, but it's the tightest input I've ever seen.
    (Insert HA, HA funny jokes here)
    Anyway, it's kind of a scraping feel when I plug the patch cable into it.
    No big deal, or what?

    What cable are you plugging into it? Some are slightly oversized.

    Sometimes when it's too tight you need lube :ninja:

  4. I would, but I don't want to void (violate ;)) the warranty!

  5. My MXR BOD is exactly the same... I just ignore it.
  6. Another fat 1/4"-er?

    Monster cables gave me a lot of grief until I finally figgered it out.

    Trash them or at least cut the ends off and reuse the cables.
    The cables are fine - the jacks need a redesign.
  7. Good to know.
    I'd rather not hassle with a return.
