    Musician's friend shipped it with a 9v battery. However, the battery compartment is bigger than the battery! and the battery moves around and loses contact with the terminals...what's the deal?

    So the product, in true French fashion, already surrendered it's secret for the low price? ;)

    Try stuffing it with something to tighten up the fit.

    Might one suggest a white flag? ;) :bag:

    Waoh, that's crappy...

    I never used a batterie with mine, so I don't know. If you just have to put stuff inside, that's a little price, in comparison to how it sounds ! :D

    figured it out. terminals are bent in for shipping purposes (since musician's friend's way of testing seems to be throwing a battery in and seeing if it turns on)

    I checked MF and all it says is discontinued. I guess they are out of them.

    That wouldn't be a surprise, the only shop that sells them in Lyon was allways out of them, when they begun to sell them. It's a great pedal, indeed... :D

    this thing is bad. I think it's affecting the style of music I want to write. I was writing folky and jazzy stuff lately and now I'm wanting to write songs like "Dig a Pony"
