    My Squeezebox has started making a humming sound. Techs have looked into it and says that it´s the transformer that´s causing the noise.
    Anyone knows if there´s any replacement transformer for this pedal. Any other brand. I have mailed Retrospec but haven´t got any answer so far.

    "trafo"?

    Is that some new slang for "transformer"?

    Thanks for noticing - transformer is what I meant when I wrote "trafo".
    I thought that was a common used slang/shortening but it´s maybe only in Sweden we use that term

    Contact established with Retrospec. Seems that the problems can be solved through them.

    Do us all a favor and ask them when they are releasing the Squeeze Box again. They've only been dangling that carrot for about 2 years now! :bawl:

    Safe to say Spring 2012 is no longer accurate :spit:

    In all seriousness, best of luck with the transformer issues. Worth every cent to get it back up and running like new.

    It's old, not new, but only techy-geeks know that particular slang. We also say "tranny" and "xfo".

    "xformer" or "xfrmr" are the slang terms this techy-geek is familiar with.

    I'm familiar with "tranny" too, but that's from a different line of work. :D
