I've had my Boss MXR Doubleshot Distortion pedal since Christmas and it's worked fine and everything until yesterday, when I plugged it in. All the lights came on and I played with the pedal off for a bit, but when I turned it on no sound came out. Does anybody have any idea why my pedal isn't working?

PS: I posted this in the GG&A forum, but only got Zero replies. so now i turn to the pit. Halp?

Don't use distortion pedals. Just bury your guitar for three weeks, and then dig it up, that should do the job.

Have you tried kicking it? Or hitting it with some type of blunt object, such as a large stone or perhaps a hammer?

So, let me see if I‘ve got this straight. You kicked it first, but no luck, so you struck it with a large stone only to find out that didn't do the trick either. Then you commandeered a hammer from someone who obviously has some mechanical ability, which, apparently, you do not, and wailed away on the pedal in question but to no avail. Is that kind of how it went? If so, I know what your problem is right now without even looking.

I'm sorry, but that is incorrect. The problem is that your ball bearings are shot. Everybody knows that these pedals are all ball bearings these days. What you do is get yourself a new set of ball bearings and replace the worn out ones in your pedal. Problem solved. I usually receive compensation to the tune of a hundred bucks for this type of thing, but you seem like a reasonable fella, so no charge.

If you must ask then you have no business knowing, plus, this proves your lack of mechanical knowledge.

That's what I thought...

if this guy is legit, check your cables and connections, and make sure your guitar's volume knob is all the way up...failing that, probably a battery fix.

how much is 15,000 PHP? I didn't know they played guitar in the Phillipines. I thought they played ukelele or something.


Because, of course, we're too far away from places with guitars and all that stuff so we play ukelele...
