    I have an EBS Bass IQ powered by an Ibanez AC Adapter and the following problem:
    Whenever I touch the connection of the power cable to the BassIQ it makes a really evil noise. It is enough to touch the power cable just lightly to produce that noise.
    My Boss ODB-3 works fine with the same adapter.
    Any ideas if this is a problem of the BassIQ or the adapter?
     
  2. what does the manual say ?
    i bet it didn't say " use ANY 9v power supply "

    Well, it says, of course,that you should use the EBS power supply. But it also says that it can be used with any regulated power supply as long as it is less than 9.4V.

    It can be used with any power supply (9V kind). I use mine with a switchmode.

    Godlyke Switchmode is tha bomb ! :)

    I use it for all my pedals, except the Hughes & kettner Tubefactor, which requires a special 12v AC (!) adaptor.
