My 'eternity' has turned into a AM radio. Is there anything I can do about it ?
What kinda cables are you using?
I used to use PW cables, and in my old rehearsal space, as soon as I stomped on my Hot Brit, I got some Japanese radio station comin through the amp. Changing to lava cables significantly helped.
I just ordered an eternity...im pretty excited Has anyone else had this problem with them?
I don't think this is an "Eternity" thing. Any high-gain device can pick-up RF.
When I got mine, there was a strange squeal and oscillation going on and it was primarily when the pedal was off. I sent it back to Sean and it turned out two of the wires in the pedal were too close and causing the problem.
Definitley call Sean, he'll take care of it.
i have had no exp with radio station interference with mine, although i did
drop it on it's creamy head once and messed up the tone knob control, i was too freaked out, so i called sean, and he walked me through the minor
repair, and good to go! e. mail him and ask his opinion, he is great to deal
with. good luck!
I don't have the problem of picking up radio stations, but do find it pretty noisy in comparison with other overdrive pedals I own (e.g. Hotcake, BBOD, PPF (fuzz))
My Timmy sometimes picks up AM radio, but only at home and with my Blues Jr. I've never had it happen during rehearsals or gigs.
Thanks guys, I'd email sean if I had his address. no contact info on the web site. Has any one ever tried to line the inside of a effects box with copper foil to act as an RF shield ? Just a passing thought
email Sean - Seanmichael252@aol.com
thanks for the address
Happy to be of assistance.
I am anxiously awaiting a burst E and a lil' China.
Check the input jack make sure its really tight..
It could be a number of unseeable things..
The stock chip is noisier than the TL072ACN chip but it shouldn't cause RF
I will PM you
yeah, e-mail Sean. I had this on a pedal once; don't know what he did, but he fixed it up good.
The Lord speaks through my Beano Boost. hehe
When I am at my brothers house playing my Beano Boost pulls in the "Moody Bible Network", a small christian radio station 20 miles from his house, which can be interesting.. He has the same problem with his Fuchs TDS50. He kids about just selling his house and moving becauseof it... Maybe he is not kidding. LOL
The Lord works in mysterious waves.....
No radio stations coming out of my Eternity...
Just freakin rawk!!
Mine is also picking up a small amount of RF at home, but I haven't noticed it at shows.
