Hi,
few weeks ago I posted here needing help about my MT2 pedal dieing
I sent it back and got a ehx metal muff pedal and it's doing the exact same thing

It worked for a while now when I turn it on NOTHING comes out of the amp, but when I hit bypass and turn it off, it comes out of the amp like normal. This tells me my setup is either ruining the pedals (i don't know if this is possible) or just doesn't work with the pedals, I don't see how two different pedals can stop working brand new. Can anyone tell me which?

I have a cheap Esteban starter guitar with practice amp. amp and guitar was $100.00
I checked both cables, I replaced battery, etc.
I hope it didn't ruin the pedal, can I just buy a new amp/guitar and the pedal will work?
I can't believe this happened twice it makes me want to quit playing.

Thanks!

Yeah Just did before I posted
and it acts the same way as old battery, even tho I don't think the battery was dead anyway
the pedal still lights up when it's on, just that the effect doesn't work.

(panasonic 9Volt)

does the guitar work when plugged straight into the amp? take the pedal out of line and just go guitar-cable-amp.

Yep, that's what I meant when I said I checked cables :\ it works that way though
the guitar even works through the pedal, just as long as effects are off.

There's no way 2 pedals in a row can come defective right? My guitar/amp had to have done something :\

it IS remotely possible to get two defects, but more than likely the amp or guitar is at fault. What are the settings on the pedal?

volume in middle, top boost all the way up, treble all the way up, mids at like 3, bass in middle, distortion in middle.
ya well it doesn't seem to work if I turn them all up tr down either, could turning some of them all the way up mess it up?
on the amp I have the setting down while using the pedal
i have 2 12' cables

parents have my camera at work or something -.-
