    yesterday i was messing around with my boss odb-3 overdrive pedal and my wah pedal and i tried to see if i could run both of them off one adapter. by the way i have one of those ac adapters with multiple plugs on it, four to be exact. and i plugged one into my distortion pedal and one into my rogue. it didn't work. so i set the distortion pedal back up by itself and now it doesn't work. any ideas?
     
  2. what is the voltage and number of mAs on the adapter? I think you fried the pedal by having the wrong voltage

    Or wrong polarity

    Or you exceded the MA

    Or you could have just done something really wrong... what kind of adapter was it???

    ok now i'm almost positive it's the adapter. i tried it with just the wah pedal and it didn't work. so i think the adapter got messed up. thanks for the input guys, i'll post back if this is not the case.
