    Hey guys!

    I've been a long time reader, and this is finally my first post.
    I have a problem with my hoof fuzz. Wh en I engage it, the light turns on, but the effect itself doesn't turn on. It works about 3 out of 5 times, and the rest of the time, it sounds as if nothing's happening. When the fuzz isn't working, it sounds as if the highs are boosted slightly and does get a bit louder, but there's absolutely no fuzz. I have it plugged into my power bar, which did have alot of stuff getting power from it. I removed some stuff from the power bar, and also removed it from a daisy chain and gave it direct power. I definitely helped, but the problem is still happening. My other pedals work perfectly fine. I did buy it used but it was not used much. Could it be a power issue? Or a contact issue? Or did I fry my pedal?

    Thanks for the help guys!

    that sounds like a bad bypass footswitch switch to me.
