Yesterday, I went with my father on a 8 hour trip. Three and a half hours to get there. I had 200 bucks to spend. So, We hit the only music store in the town- I got a Boss SuperChorus Pedal and Digiverb.

Well, I got back and the Chorus works awesomely. The Digiverb pedal worked great. For 20 minutes. I played around with it on distortion, cause I was making some really awesome Horror movie sounding effects, and it died out. The light that shows it was on still worked, but the effects were out. And I pressed and pressed the pedal, the light stay on, wouldn't turn off, and the effects were non-existant.

Now, I'm wondering if maybe I got screwed: The one I got was the one on display, it was opened with the plastic bag that it came in half way off to show it.

Also, I want to know if maybe I screwed it up.. I had three pedals (The previously mentioned Chorus, The Digiverb, and my Boss Metal Zone) All were on at the same time.. I didn't think it would hurt anything, but I don't know.

What do you guys think?

Edit: I put a brand new battery in it and I did the same thing. Either way, with that same battery, I can use the pedal for about a minute or two at a time and it will sound fine, then die out again.

Are you using an adaptor? If not it could just be a dead battery.

Yeah, The other pedals still go through, and it sounds ok. Although, when I first tryed playing around with it to get it to work, I started messing with the knobs and the guitar volume, and there was a sound in the background, it basically sounded..well...Like A long drawn out fart. Heh. When I pressed the pedal down, it sorta "revved up..."

Probably need to add that bit to the main post...

those things eat batteries, but you're talking a couple of hours of constant playing, not 1 minute.

I think you should take it back for a refund.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Yeah, I guess I don't have much choice, unless it miraculously works later.(Pft.)

That's a long ride, though. x.x

^ yeah, but it's the only thing for it, unfortunately. Trying to fix it might work if it's something minor, but if it's not, and you're unsuccessful, you've probably voided your warranty...
