    Hello All,
    I recently purchased a Devi Ever Ruiner new from an online dealer. I have paired it with a 9V DC Negative tip 2.1 mm power supply as per the instructions. I was a little disapointed that you cant use a battery, but hey, guess i didnt read enough. This is the result

    I was wondering wether the mA of my power supply could cause this, it is only 300 mA as opposed to some power supplies that have 1000 mA.

    I have mailed Devi Ever, but havent got a response yet.
    Any opinions on my problem ?

    Oh that is NOT normal. I call 'defective unit".
  3. I would say that's not right. I've had a few devi pedals and none have done that, even with single coils. I had her Aenima pedal, which can even pick up radio stations, and it didn't make that much hum. As far as I've ever heard, she's really good about repairing pedals. And if this one's new, you should either try to exchange it for a new one or send that one out to Devi.

    While I've never been the biggest fan of her pedals this is doing very little to make a believer out of me.
  6. It actually might be easier to get a hold of her via twitter or facebook. Heck, post the video on her facebook page. That might garner some attention...

    She probably won't fix it. That's coming from personal experience. I just rehoused a Devi pedal and spent have my time rewiring it because of what a mess it was. It's not a ding at Devi either because she didn't actually build the damn thing, it was someone else that works for her. I think they aren't that good at building and just churning out crap.

    Pull the stupid electrical tape off and snap some shots.

    You know it's also worth noting that I've owned two pedals recently that do this. One was the Bogner Ecstasy Blue and the other is the Rusty Box (depending on settings).

    Could it be that the pedal is just inherently noisy?

    Damn, it sucks to hear there was something wrong with the pedal (and that no one claimed responsibility for fixing it). Glad to hear you got it sorted out though!
