I sold a small amp the other day and got this baby today. Sounds a thousand times better than my multi-effects pedal.
Still working on the settings though. I'm never happy with settings so I usualy end up eqing for months.

And no "Opening" pictures because as soon as I got home i ripped it all open and plugged it in without taking pictures.



One question, since this is my first single pedal. Will the battery be drained if i turn it off with the amp and stuff but leave the cords plugged into it?

But I suggest getting a power supply, they are only 15$ and save LOTS of troubles

Already am. Getting one next month when I can get some cash.

^Save up some and get a 1 Spot. $30, but if you plan to get more pedals, it will come in handy.

And then save up for a new amp

i think most pedals turn on when plugged in, whether the amp is on or not

I know, I was saying his amp sucks (and having owned the EXACT same one myself and having it die in a little over a year, with fender not wanting to replace it, I speak from the heart).

BTW, when a pedal has a battery powering it, it starts using power when the instrument cables are plugged in. When it is using a power supply, it always has electricity running through it as long as the power supply is plugged in to the wall.

Please don't post if you have little to no knowledge of what you are talking about.

^Just baby it until you do. Cranking it will result in frustration. I had it on 5 in the early stages of my band and it blew. The amp itself was fried, not the speakers, and Fender wouldn't replace it.

Ahaha, I won't have to worry about that then. I'm not allowed to have it at 2. >_>
Plus I rarely move it.

basically you`re saying that it does turn on (use power) when it is plugged in...

^Yes. A pedal uses power whether it is being engaged or not. Just because you don't have your distortion pedal on doesn't mean it doesn't have a current running through it. And again, if it is using a 9v battery, the battery will provide power (ENGAGED OR NOT) as long as the instrument cables are plugged in. When a power supply from an outlet is plugged in, a current is always running through the pedal, ENGAGED OR NOT.

It's not a difficult concept.

If you're not allowed to play your current amp above 2 you are not going to be looking forward to a happy relationship with a tube amp.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

I was thinking of something like a 5 watt tube amp. lol
But that's probably far off. Either way i'll most likely be out of the house by the time this happens.

The problem is, I don't get why you made the comment in the first place.

If the Hardwire series are all True Bypass, it will only use power when enabled since there's no buffer running.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Oh seriously? Well, when I unplug the guitar side of it the blue light flashes, so could it be using power?

HNPD! I really wanna try one of those as my only experience with the Hardwire line thus far has been my DL-8 and I love it.

Indeed. The next pedal I plan on getting is the Hardwire Delay/Looper and then.. nothing else I suppose. That is until a job comes. I quite enjoy the sound of my guitar now that the Multi-fx unit isn't choking my sound. <3
