i have this boss dist pedal that i run on battery. i plugged it in and while there is light when i turn in on, theres no distortion. its just like playin the bass w/o dist.... my cables are abit faulty, could it be the reason? or could the battery be running out? or...could it be i messed up the thing? ive kicked the thing accidently acouple of times, but theyre supposed to be tough yeah?
