I've recently bought a second-hand Bass Buddy. It has a couple of problems: a very tired power supply and a broken fader. okay, I said, it's not a problem, I'll get a new power supply. wasn't able to find one in PJB's shop, so I mailed them and asked to purchase one. they answered that since Bass Buddy is recently discontinued, they don't provide any repairs or able to provide spare parts. They said, they do have a power supply though they can sell. I answered: sounds great, please tell me how do I purchase one, as it isn't in your shop. I'm still waiting an answer from them, although it's been two weeks and no reply yet. So: they started to make a product 12 years ago and stopped to make it like a year ago (?), and now it's not supported and if it breaks, you should throw it out? Sounds not like a great product support for me, frankly. I love PJB gear, I have some pieces of it, but now I'll think several times before buying a new one from them. of course I've tried to use a third-party power-supply. it's just a 18v power supply, I thought. first I encountered that Bass Buddy needs a center-positive 18v power supply. second thing I encountered was that not every 18v center-positive power supply with rated voltage will match: the ones I have make the head hiss terribly. in case somebody who reads this owns a Bass Buddy and have successfully used it with a 3-rd party power supply, please tell me which works. thanks for reading.
