I just purchased an EHX Wiggler from Musiciansfriend.com
There is quite a lot of thumping/pulsing noise (in unison with the rate knob setting). Is this normal or should I return the unit to Musiciansfriend? It’s not “line noise” but more of a pulsing sound that is really quite annoying. When the unit is switched to bypass the pulse sound becomes very faint, but it is still there.
I isolated the unit from my pedal board and it behaves the same whether or not it is the only pedal used.
Of note, the unit was delivered missing the front left chassis screw. Could this possibly be causing this pulsing noise?
I really like the sound of the Wiggler thus far, but the pulsing/thumping noise has potential to drive me nuts. Especially for what I consider an expensive pedal.
