The power jack on MANY of the pedals are weak and a yank sideways can damage the jack or the board it is mounted on.

ANOOTHER problem is using an adapter with the wrong size plug. SOME plugs have a larger diameter hole and will work intermittenly.

When used, it seems to effect guitar amplifiers and cause a strange sort of a chorus sound, like somehow the unit is bleeding into the other amps.


it maybe interference picked up through an unsheided or poorly sheided cable or through single coil type pickups rather though the amp itself. You might also try get your power for the amps and this unit through different circuits.

Hello, My Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer pedal is having issues. I bought it around 6 months ago. When I first discovered the problem, it didn't work at all when turned on. It just made this feedback...


Make sure you use Alkaline battery and NOT rechargeable type... the rechargeable battery will NOT work in the pedals (their voltage is lower even though they are labeled as 9 volt replacement).

Other internal problems can be due to cracked circuit board or broken solder joints. These are very common as people step on the cables when plugged in. This breaks the connection inside. A fuzzy sound often occurs when one of the contacts is marginal due to bad solder at the jack terminals.

I recently bought a Korg Pitchblack Tuner. It tunes correctly, (maybe a little slower than my Boss) but it will not power other pedals with the daisy chain. I am using a standard Boss wall wart which...


The tuner uses around 500 ma which may be nearly all your wall wart can put out... DO NOT overload the power adapter by daisy chaining other pedal power loads on it.

My boss metal zone pedal power light wont come on when i hook the ac adapter to it i get nothing but a hum and no output clean or distortion,then when i plug a 9volt battery in it gives only clean tone...


There is a switch contact that connects the battery when you unplug the AC adapter. These commonly get sprung and cease to make contact leaving the battery disconnected when adapter is unplugged, resulting in no power. Verify the battery is being connected and see if the unit works properly. If so the adapter is either the wrong one or defective.
In other words, there may be two problems.

I have NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal, this works fine but in some moment make a radio noise (hum) and the output signal comes down (like turns the volume to 0) ... I don't know what it is, I'm going to...


The probable problem is poor connections at the input and/or audio output jacks.

Usually the power supply will fail either on or off which is sometimes cause by a bad input power jack.

In any case, the problem is likely internal and will require repair.

BUT FIRST...

A common cause of this is we forget which side is input and output... happens ALL the time, so verify you have the in and the out cables to the right placee.

How to set up with amp and distortion pedal


With everything switched off. I will surmise that you are using the onboard battery with the foot pedal and not a power supply.
1. Plug lead from guitar/instrument into INPUT side of pedal
2. Plug lead from OUTPUT side of pedal into amplifier INPUT.
3. Turn amplifier volume to about 10 o'clock - to stop blowing your ears out.
4. Turn volume up on guitar to acceptable level.
5. press foot switch on pedal and adjust pedal controls to suit your type of distortion.
6. Play like Hendrix.
Good Luck
ps Just as an after thought rechargeable 9volt batteries are the way to go. I've been using them for years as I always get caught up in the power cable.
If you're going to add another pedal like a Phaser, Compressor, Flanger or what just use small connect leads between each pedal but always, always put the compressor pedal last in the line.

The treshold needs to be turned all the way up in order to reduce noise..i thought that i must be set in a 9 o'clock position based on the reveiews in youtube.


Yes. Very much so. The noise reduction should be the very last pedal, of course. Try to even plug your chain in a different outlet than the one your amp (or if recording to a computer, different than the computer outlet). If you have a particularly loud distortion, have it be the last one before the noise reduction pedal.

The Distortion Pedal has no effect on the sound.


i got d same problm. i fixed it myself.. check all the op amp ic's if they're all gud. if youre not sure, replace all 4 rc4558 ic's. in my case, i still felt a very small output signal from my pedal (equalizers, vol n gain ctrls r gud since they vary when i change the setting) so i suspected that one or 2 of my ic's were damaged. i only replace d last two op amps which my signal passes thru. i also had this problm with my marshall drive master. same diagnosis and solution. check your schematics
