Hey so I just plugged in my electric and noticed something very strange... Whenever I play without any of my pedals turned on, then my sound comes through okay, but the second I turn on any pedal, the signal cuts out immediately. I have tried every pedal by itself, and I know it's not just one pedal. They are all hooked up to a 1-spot, but I tried using all batteries and that still does nothing... I have also tried using different cables but nothing works... I know there's no way 4 pedals broke all at once... And I know that the pedals DO have power because when I press them the lights come on. Can somebody PLEASE help?

If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

Make sure you've got all of the pedals plugged in the correct way. I've done that before and I felt like a total dumbass.

Yeah, they don't arrest/ticket hobos because they can't pay the fines. Then they hang out in the jail all day eating free food. There's no point.

Is the Boss 9v or 18v that might be your problem there. Not to sure though. but thats the only thing I can think of.

Are the pedals in your effects loop or in front of your preamp?

1. Guitar -> preamp -> [Effects loop start] Pedals..... [Effects loop end] -> power amp

or

2. Guitar -> pedals -> amp

If its 1, maybe your effects loop is gone?
