I have a Line6 Echo Park, and for whatever reason, it will generate a lot of static-y noise whenever it's on (there is no noise when it's off). It never had this problem until it was in a house fire and got wet with some pretty nasty water.

I have cleaned the pedal as much as I could, but I couldn't get it to come all the way apart without fear of breaking something.

Would cleaning it even get rid of the noise problem? Would I be better off to add an NS-2 (or similar pedal) to my effects loop? Or is using this pedal a lost cause?

Yeah.. It was $150, so I would like to try everything possible before tossing it.

At this point, I'm really more curious as to if putting a noise suppressor in my effects loop would get rid of the noise?

thats hard to say, it would certainly help. But if there is serious damage to any capacitors or anything on the board then idk. All i can say is to try. Borrow a buddy's NS-2 or something.

If it is a small capacitor or something you could always get a new one and solder it on there. idk just a thought.
