    So I've got an EHX Holy Grail, lovely reverb. Problem is, after being plugged in for awhile, the pedal gets rather warm, physically. Is this something I should be concerned about? Or is this normal with Holy Grails? I'm currently using a One-Spot to power my pedals.

    I don't own one, and I'm probably wrong, but I think the Holy Grail needs a different 18v adaptor? Correct me if I am wrong someone... at the same time I dont know how less voltage could have that effect so I'm gona let someone else give you a proper awnser:rolleyes:

    Nope, she's a 9V pedal. But she supposedly requires 500mA. That shouldn't cause it either.

    Maybe some sort of short?
