Well, my Black Finger has bit the dust. A couple of months after I bought it, it started crackling from time to time, and then the footswitch stopped working. I assumed that the crackling was related to the bad footswitch, because it crackled when I clicked it. I put the pedal in a loop by itself on my loooper, and just left it on all of the time. As long as I didn't mess with the footswitch, it worked fine, so I just turned it on and off by using the Loooper to bypass it. At yesterdays gig, it started crackling pretty much all of the time, so I turned it off using the footswitch instead of bypassing the loop. I tried to use it on a couple of songs, but it was so noisy that I gave it up. Today, I pulled out my pedalboard, hooked it up, and the Black Finger is totally dead. No power. Could a bad footswitch cause this, or did I ruin the pedal by using it with a faulty switch? Who repairs these things? How much can I expect to pay for a repair? Thanks. I have ordered a Demeter Compulator to tide me over, but the BF is so cool and funky, I want to get it fixed and keep it, unless it costs almost as much as a new one.
