Okay thanksbfor opening my thread...

Today I was playing for a few hours straight using my boss ds-1 distortion pedal. I just unplugged my guitar from the pedal, and a plume of smoke shot from the input jack, scaring the living hell out of me.

So my question is do I bring it backto guitarcenter(I bought the 2 yr warranty from them) or do I call boss?

i would take it back to GC to start, and if they wont take it then have to send it to boss.

have you tried it again though? i mean smoke shouldnt come out of a pedal like that, but it could be that nothing is wrong. if you dont want to try it, take it back to GC.

The pedal stops sound. It just tottaly blocks it out.

GC is totally responsible. You bought the extended warranty (in a $40 pedal...really?) and thats what its for. If they wont honor it, raise hell. If they wont take care of a boss pedal, what are they going to say when you bring in a broken Marshall tube amp?

Why would you get the warranty? Boss pedals come with a 5 year warranty. Take it back though and get a refund then go somewhere else and but it without an additional warranty.
