...appears not to be working. Both leads work fine when it is just guitar and amp - when I put a DS-1 in the middle, no sound seems to be coming out of the amplifier. I have changed the battery, but I still have the same problem. What to do?! (the pedal is relatively new - one month old :/)

many thanks

sorry if i'm insulting your intelligence but this happens sometimes make sure the knobs are up and ur guitar volume is up and amp volume. turn it on and when the led light comes up and u hear nothing then u got a bad pedal. i'm sure u've tried this before but just trying to help

is the 'level' up?

and yes the level is up - but even when the pedal is off, i hear nothing; it's as if the pedal is blocking out all sound....

Are the leads plugged into the right jacks?

I have made that mistake MANY times...

Boss pedals are wired so that they don't turn on without a cord in the input jack, and they have a bypass that would let sound go through if its not turned on. Assuming that its powered, which you say it is, then my first guess would be the leads going to the output jack.
But it'd be easiest to just cash in on the warrenty.

^stereo jacks work... stereo plugs might not im not sure.

i say the leads are in the wrong way, or ur amp's volume isn't up, or ur guitar's volume isn't up.
