What are your thoughts on builders with no return policy? I recently purchased a brand new pedal on reverb that was sold directly from the builder. And like an idiot, I didn’t check the return policy. I figured, I’m buying directly from the builder, If the pedal doesn’t work out for me, I'm sure I can return it. Well, that was a stupid thought because this builder doesn’t accept returns, and of course the pedal ended up not working out. So now I’m stuck with a “new” pedal that I have to sell used. Honestly a bit pissed about it, and I know it’s my fault that I didn’t check the return policy, but seriously, how does a builder not accept any returns? Edit: This is the reason I would have liked to return this particular pedal This particular pedal was incredibly noisy with my rig. I honestly thought the pedal was faulty at first, but then I found a few threads on here with other people having the same issue with this particular pedal. They too were using a T-Rex Chameleon power supply, and they discovered that running the pedal on battery or a one spot seemed to resolve the noise issue. So I tried it with a one spot, and while the pedal wasn’t exactly quiet, it was an acceptable amount of noise/hum for a fuzz. Why the pedal is super noisy with my T-Rex is a mystery. I don’t have any major noise issues with the other pedals on my board. I did reach out to the builder and showed him the threads with other people having the same issue and he basically said “That is strange. Sorry it didn’t work out for you.” To the builders credit, he did offer to take a look at the pedal, but after I tested it with a One Spot, I decided it was unlikely the pedal would be found faulty and declined the offer to have it checked out. Is it the pedal? Is it my rig? Who knows! I don't have the issue with other gain pedals, and it's not overly noisy when running on a one spot. That being said, I'm not going to run the pedal with separate power to "resolve" the issue, and I'm not going to buy a new power supply for one pedal that doesn't play well on my board. Anyway, it didn’t make me feel any better about it when I saw that the builder offered a return to the person in the other thread having the same issue. It is what it is. Edit: My initial thinking that it seems crazy a builder doesn't have a return policy has changed. It was stupid to think that.
