Wampler Wobbles

Post by Slowy »

My Tumnus Deluxe has developed a loud hum. Touch the pedal and it increases to a buzz. Running off a 1 Spot power supply with Lava cables patch leads. Swapping leads makes no difference.

Suggestions please?

Sounds like an earthing issue, are the nuts on the jacks tight? I'd try it direct into the amp with two known good guitar leads and the same power supply only going into that pedal, if that doesn't improve then try a battery, if that doesn't improve then its likely something in the pedal... but they don't tend to fail... more likely to be the power supply or a faulty lead :)

It sounds like a grounding issue somewhere. They come with a 5 year warranty so the seller can help you get it sorted
