I got my new EVH Flanger yesterday. It sounds really great but I got this problem; when I switch it on I got this "popping" sound in time with the speed knob. And this only occurs when plugged in the Effect loop of my amp. I want back to the store with it and the guy told me that it's normal with effects with true bypass(seems like the EVH is...), and that the "pop" sound will disappears. Is that true?

I'm pretty sure that pedal isn't true bypass; and good true bypass pedals don't pop.

I don't know whether any of this is true or not really, but it seems extremely odd to me that the pop sound would just "go away" like the store guy said.

Exactly. Either there's a pop, or there's no pop.

It possible though that the pop only happens sometimes: like when you switch it on after being off a long time.

some pedals do that when they are new, it usually does go away after awhile.

yeah....but just to make myself clear, the popping sound is not happening on the moment I switch it on, it's happening during the effect is activated...pop!.........pop!.........pop! And it,s seems to be linked with the speed knob! But this popping is not happening when plugged in the input of the amp....only in the effect loop.

Hm... I've never heard of/seen that before. I suppose it could make sense if a few of the moving components need a little bit to round themselves off a little bit. Still seems a little odd though.

ahhh, the pedal could be overloaded from the preamp signal, or it could just be noise from the circuit thats amplified more when its in the effects loop.

In that case it would have to be a mechnical pop: with the sound coming from the switch, not the speaker.

what do you mean by "overloaded"? Too much effects in the loop? I try with only the EVH in the loop and the noise was there too...

Yeah, that's what I meant by physical parts. Should have been a little more clear, but I could see that happening.

Could you suggest a solution here? I don't know much about this, but it's caught my interest.

Edit: Nevermind, hankey got it.

The signal coming out of the preamp is very loud compared to a normal, unamplified signal; so you're essentially overdriving the pedal a bit.

Is there a way to fix this? Cause I would like to know!

...don't run it in the effects loop?
#15
yeah that's obvious!

But is the effect broken in some kind of way, or could it be my amp?

That's sucks!

Anyway my friend got one too and I will try his with my amp....then will see!

hey thanks guys!!!!

If your amp doesn't do it with any other pedals, then it's quite obvious where the problem is.

How's the Holy Grail, by the way?
#17
i doubt the pedals broken, just overloaded, that happens a bit with analog pedals.

to see if its TB and not buffer, unplug it and bypass it and see if you can play though it.
if its a TB youll hear the guitar, if its buffered you wont get any sound though it

if you mean by unplugging the power....I guess it's not.....

Yeah sorry!

The holy Grail is great! I haven't played a whole lot of different reverb but this one sounded way better and natural than the Boss one. They only downside of it is that you lose volume as you turning the knob to add reverb....but otherwise I really recommend it.
