A day ago i had two perfectly usable pedals. They worked perfectly and did everything they were supposed to do. Today they are totally ****ed. New batteries, all cables are fine but the LEDs don't light up and the pedals just don't work. I've owned a total of 7 pedals over a few years and 5 of those have broken. The two that never broke were never used with my crappy practice amp.

Could my amp or possibly even my guitar (passive pickups) be causing this? The amp is pretty poorly built so it wouldnt suprise me if there was somehow 240v running through the effects loop or some other retarded thing that only chinese slave labourers could screw up.

Help Me...

You're taking the cables out of the pedals after you're done with them right

Is there any possible way you could have accidentally plugged the pedals into one of the speaker outputs instead of the effects loop? I ask because I have seen amps where they are very close together it wouldn't be much of stretch to do if you were in a hurry.

You didnt say what kind of pedals. Cheap lower quality pedals dont last long. And never heard of an amp screwing up pedals if they are between the guitar and amp theres not really a way it could happen. A pedal plugged into a speaker out would definatly fry it.

In a word, no.

Have you tried changing the batteries?
