my digitech death metal distortion pedal just came in and i hooked it correctly and put brand new batteries in it... its not working when i hook it up my amp and guitar do not go together. i hook the amps input to the pedals "out 1" (amp). then i hook my guitar to the input on the pedal. then i turn my amp on and i try to play and my amp acts like its not connected to my guitar. whats the problem?

o and BTW my amp works fine without the pedal/
dodgy cables? maybe the battery wasnt charged or something.

Maybe you put in the batteries in the pedal incorrectly.

Or the batteries suck.

1. Check the level and EQ on the pedal
2. make sure there is a cable in the input or its not going to turn on.
If that doesnt work....
Change the 9V battery
If that doesnt work...
You may have recieved a defected pedal.
