Stomp Boxes

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ImNotGeddyLee, Apr 19, 2001.


  1. Is it really dangerous to leave pedals plugged in when not in use (either ac plug or instrument cable)? I have my pedal board and just wanted to know if it will hurt it if i leave them all plugged in all the time.

    To expand on the previous post, many stompboxes that are being powered by batteries only drain when there is a cable making contact in the input. THEREFORE, you should be fine if it is powered by an electrical cable.
