I have a DS-1 distortion pedal and a digital delay DD-3 and they are always dead in the morning when i check them even when i changed the batteries the night before. and i know i am not leaving them on. is there something im missing?

disconnect them from anything

edit: it used to happen to my also.... boss pedals only work (eat batteries) if they are connected to both guitar and amp

It drains the battery to even have them plugged in

Buy a power adapter in the future, though.

Boss pedals eat up those expensive 9 volt batteries.

Exactly what I was going to say.

If you're really serious about how many pedals you wish to eventually own, buy something to clean up the current before it gets to your pedalboard's power supply.

9V batteries at about $1 each. $4.95 flat rate shipping. isn't this a steal?


*Mumble* I got all excited for the first sentence..

Anyway, just buy a power supply.

Buy a boss pedal tuner and daisy chain off of that, youll save on batteries, and you'll have a pedal tuner. If you already have a tuner pedal, look into soething like the Dunlop DC Brick.

Is it true that Boss pedals won't go well with anything other than Boss power adaptor?

Try a Visual Sound 1spot adaptor. 1700mA. can power numerous pedals. Though I'm using my Boss ACA to power 5 of them.

Your probably leaving the input leads in, it's because when the input jack is inserted it completes the circuit in the pedal and drains the power, even if you have it in the off mode.

I'm using a SoundLab PP450 for my pedals, runs 6 and it only cost me £20 from maplins.
