Earthing issue EHX Octave Multiplexer

    Bit of a strange issue with the EHX Octaver. The pedal makes quite a loud hum. However, when I touch the pedal with my toe (or anywhere else for that matter) the hum completely disappears. Obviously an earthing issue.

    Any ideas how to solve this?

    Try tightening all of the nuts on the pedal, ins and outs and pots.

    That was what caused a grounding problem on my boss chorus.

    Be sure the power supply is of the proper polarity as well.
