I bought a Deluxe Memory Boy almost two weeks ago. Played with it a few times by itself with the power adapter and plugged into my amp alone. Sounded great!
Then I put together a pedal board with a daisy chain. I used the same adapter it came with to plug into the BOSS chromatic tuner pedal, and then connected the daisy chain through 7 other pedals including the DMB. Sound quality was noticibly worse, a ticking noise that went to the beat of the green tap tempo light was occuring, the delays were significantly quieter, and I had to have the feedback knob cranked to get four repeats.
So I took the daisy chain back and got the voodoo lab pedal power 2 and plugged everything in with that. This fixed the issue with the ticking noise, but I still had all the other problems.
Then I went back to plugging only into the DMB from my guitar straight into the amp, powering it with the AC adapter it came with and it still has the quiet delays and feedback and gain knobs have to be cranked to heard more than two delays.
I know this isn’t right… any idea on what’s going on/what I’ve done to it?
