i went to my local store earlier with my dad (he plays guitar and wanted to pick something up), and they had a digitech bass synth wah pedal available. having listened to clips online of it previously, i asked if i could take a look at it. i grabbed a 4-string samick (passive elevtronics, volume/tone controls), plugged in, and turned the pedal on. it was a fun little pedal and scrolling through the modes i found some cool sounds that i could potentially use (being a metal player). even if it wouldnt be in a song, i like to record my own stuff and mess around with it. but anyway, i pushed the switch to put it in bypass, and no sound came out. it wasnt a volume problem, as the volume on the bass was fuly cranked, there isnt a volume control on the pedal, and the volume on the amp was unchanged. is it just a lemon, or is it something up with all digitech pedals? it was being run with a 9-volt, no power cable. also, the cable was running out of the out 2 (effect) slot. i think thats the problem, but im just checking. thanks!
