PeaceKeeper ticking
« on: December 06, 2016, 10:05:01 PM »
I love the PeaceKeeper! I am getting some ticking in the background. Wondering if it might be the J201's?

What kind of ticking? How loud? Is it regularly or sporatic? How often?

Ticking is an extremely unusual phenomenon in an overdrive. Modulation, sure. Are you sharing a power supply for it with a modulation pedal, particularly something digital?

ugh I guess i don't know how to imbed the video. I have two 2399 echo pedals in the fx loop but they were not powered during the video. The amp is analog solid state. It does it with battery or power supply. i use a BBE supacharger which has isolated power for each pedal. I'm wondering if maybe it's a failing 100uf cap? Or maybe I should re-flow all grounds?

It's too fast to be a failing cap discharging, and doing it on battery rules out most power supply possibilities. You could replace the cap and see if it works better.

Honestly, that sounds like line noise, like from your pickups passing on environmental interference. I get similar noises playing in some bars.
