Okay so I got a Boss DS-1 distortion pedal brand new about 3 years ago.

I've never really had any problems with it until now. Whenever I turn the level above 0, I get a really strange crackling noise.

Ive tried changing the battery, and using different leads, and i still get the same noise. I know it's definately the pedal, it dosent happen at all if I take it out.

I could take a video to show you guys if necessary.

Thanks for any help you can give

Have you tried cleaning the pots with switch cleaning oil?
