Hi,

My RE-20 Space Echo pedal has been playing up recently and I tried messing around with it to figure out the problem.

I used to have the output jack connect to the first 'mono' output. However, when I instead put the jack in the second output the issue disappears.

I was just wondering whether there would be any differences in sound using each of these different outputs (just a standard rig i.e. 1 amp)?

Thanks a lot.

you will be fine, sounds like the mono labeled jack is faulty

well, if its doing a ping pong type delay ( i cant remember if the space echo has this or not ) there might be space between echos as its sending it to 'amp 1' which isnt actually there .

Try some contact cleaner (DeOxit) on a cable and plug/unplug it into Jack 1 10 times. Let it dry and try it again. Every musician needs DeOxit!

Sounds interesting, I shall definitely look into it.

What actually is it?

Thanks.

It is an electrical contact cleaner and electronic lubricant. It will clean any corrosion/grime off and not hurt the electrical circuits, it also is non-conductive so you will not have any arcing through the circuit (which is dangerous to the circuit).


I personally use the Radio Shack brand because it is much cheaper but does the same thing, but Deoxit is available world wide that is why it always gets suggested

I can't seem to find any of that stuff locally (as I need it within the next couple of days).

A local store has this stuff in stock:

http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/wd-40-specialist-contact-cleaner-400ml-n94lj

Do you think this will do a similar job?

Also, how do I use it!?!? :O Would I just spray it into the jack input from the outside, or would I be better opening it up?

Thanks a lot.

Do this to it (Spray it on the cable plug):

You don't need to open up the pedal, this method works fine.
You can open it up and rub the contacts with Q-TIP soaked it the contact cleaner for a more thorough job though, but its generally not necessary.

Whats in the link looks like it will work fine.
HOWEVER, regular WD40 is a BIG NO NO in electronics.

Excellent, thanks for your help. I'll ensure it's specialist electrical contact cleaner.
