So I’m noodling today on the P Bass, enjoying a little Stranglers-esque OD through my Peavey Dirty Dog, and I notice a slight electric smell, but nothing alarming. I soon ended my session and went on with the rest of the day, the Dog plugged into it’s power supply as usual (an adjustable store bought one, but set on 9v as per the requirements, or so I thought). This evening, I wanted to finish working from my earlier practice, and I fire everything up without engaging the Dog. Everything is working with it in bypass, but I start to notice that smell again. I take the Dog off bypass...nothing. I feel the power supply and it’s very warm. I unplug it and see the switch is on 12v. I try a new 9v battery without the power supply connected, and still nothing. It’s an ungainly chunk of a pedal, but if it ain’t JJ Burnel in a box I don’t know what is, and now I think it’s a hot dog. Are my fears as well-founded as I think they may be?
