9V = volts nots watts ...

you mean you plugged it in to the fvcking wall?

It's one of the ones you have to plug into the wall.The thing that makes the voltage into 9volts is broke so I had to cut the wires and rig it to a 9v battery.

So... hang on... are you still plugging it into the wall or not?

And does it actually work now?

i think what hes saying is he broke the plug (its old, so must be one with a permenant plug+cable) and therefore rigged the live the neutral to a battery?

you are one fvcked child (P.S any news on your girlfriend?)

the transformer was broke in it I had to cut the wires from the cable and transformer and rig a battery clip to the wires then put a battery in it it's one of the ones that has to plug into the wall but the transformer is fvcked so I replaced it with a battery.It works now,but the effect(the sound of the chorus not the chorus it's self) is messed up on it and my uncle says it's because the pots need to be cleaned.

not transformer.. plug. you mean the plug.

that shouldn't affect the chorus sound, just a load of noise when you turn the pots (don't know this for sure, someone will know though)

your girl preggers yet?

no it's not the plug the transformer is blown I tested it with a volt meter man.

And naw man she's not man.Things got weird and we split a few days ago too.

pedals don't have transformers in them. The only way you could have hooked up a battery is by removing the plug and using those two wires.. which i'm still suprised that it actually worked. :-hmmm

Actually Henry, 70s Memory Man pedals that had their own lead had a transformer in them (I have seen pics, although they were on ebay and will as such be long gone by now), so it's entirely possible that the Clone Theory did as well. In fact doing a bit of reading it seems they had a transformer and rectifier set up. So I think what he's suggesting he's done is completely removed that and the lead, and just connected a battery clip instead.

I'm actually amazed that's worked. It can't be right though? I would have thought the reason it had its own lead was 'cause it ran at something other than 9 volts. :?

you only need a little bit though.. so go and buy the smallest radioshack one or whatever..

the smallest can is $15.(note it's only 4.4oz of spray)

So pay $15 for it, it's not like it's single use, that can'll last for ages if you use it sparingly, which you should, you need like one tiny squirt per pot.

This is one of those situations where there really isn't an alternative to paying up.

I would but my mom said that it's to much and she wouldn't give me the money. :? I tried to get her to belive that I need it for several pedals but she won't listen :? and I have to get the money from her because I'm really broke right now.
