I am hoping this forum can shed some light. So recently I bought this pedal "new" from eBay from a music shop out of new jersey. I was supposed to get a limited edition model and payed extra for it. After receiving and finding the pedal was standard edition I was offered a refund for the difference. Here's the issue though, my supposed to be new pedal has massive static that plays through when I start playing. It sounds broken. After calling and complaining I was told the pedal was working fine and that it was my set up. I use active basses, modulus. Can this cause a pedal to be loaded with static once the strings are pulled? While the effect of fuzz is there the static is just bad. After pulling all pedals and running it solo it does not improve. So I got a bum pedal maybe. Sadly I cannot get a refund as I was told I waited to long to complain. Ok here's the question, if I take this pedal to my local amp repair shop can pedals be repaired or am I out $300?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time!
