Help! Mini trouble :'(

Postby ogguitar » Sun Oct 30, 2016 6:25 am

So... my Mini is one of my favorite pedals ever. After gigging mine for 3 years though, it has begun to cut in and out, drop in volume, or just not engage at all at times. After researching these issues pretty extensively, the most common source for these issues is a dirty footswitch (or even failed footswitch, but I doubt it's failing). However, when I opened up my Mini to clean the footswitch, I found that I can't really access the footswitch very well to clean it thoroughly. I live overseas, so shipping it in for repair would set me back at least two months I'd guess (that's a pretty optimistic estimate), not to mention the costs. It doesn't seem like it should be complicated enough to warrant that kind of hassle on both ends. With Brian busy on tour, can anyone here chime in?

I think Brian's back now. Or almost. Send him an email, he's usually quite helpful for things like that.

He's back :) I had sent him one, and he got back to me today. Stoked to get this thing back to full health since it's such a key component of my sound.

All good :hug: Life without Mini is hard. Confession: it's still on my board and I still try to use it. Pretty sure this is the clinical definition of denial.
