There is a constant loud hum/buzz whenever I turn the pedal on. With my Boss Mt 2 Metal Zone effects pedal. It happens whether or not the power supply is plugged in. Ive tried switching cables and...
First and foremost , check your signal chain. By that, i mean put the pedal aside, ...just unhook it and take it out of your signal path. Using the same cables , guitar , amp, other pedals - borrow a friends MT-2 if you can get one , and try THAT to see if THAT works , OR any other kind of distortion pedal. If another one works ok , it's YOUR MT-2. Boss pedals are pretty rugged , but sometimes the little actuator (on/off switch) underneath the treadle (where you push your foot down) will become faulty. That's a high-gain pedal - are you using a basic Strat or other single-coil pickup guitar? If so , are you playing close to any flourescent lights? SIngle coils are noisy around those lights. Will cause a hum / buzz if using a heavy dist. pedal. You can check that by moving around as you play.
