I'd never heard of this phenomena before, but perhaps someone can verify it's legitimacy...

I read that new pedals sound better after they've been used a little bit. The circuit gets "burned in" or something. In the same topic, some mentioned plugging the pedal in and leaving it switched on over night.

WTF is this? I know a similar thing happens with speakers, but I was told it's bad to leave them with MP3 players or something plugged in to artificially wear them in. Can anyone elaborate?

are you from tgp?

speakers, yeah.

pedals? I dunno, but i doubt it.

yeah, this is total BS. but i will give someone credit, it almost sounds legitimate enough to be right.

this could be a great new BS 'upgrade' for pedals, manufacturers can sell 'broken-in' pedals for a small upcharge. why didn't anyone think of this earlier

Actually, that might have been where I read it... I wasn't sure if it was legit, it sounded pretty sketchy to me. Why/how does info like that get passed around? Cork sniffing?

leaving your pedals on all night drain the battery...

now that you mention it, i think it might help leaving them on overnight.

or you can leave them plugged in for 2-3 hours at 18v for quicker results.

It's got nothing to do with electricity. Pedals wear in over time by the action of stomping them. that's why they are called stompboxes.

Its electronic there is nothing to burn in or wear in except maybe the foot switch you stomp on. Maybe a potentiometer or a inductor that has a resistive track that can wear out but otherwise nope, who ever suggested this was sniffing glue.
