    Hey folks, I just recently picked up a Line 6 Verbzilla and while I am overall pretty happy with the sound one thing is bugging me. The low battery red flashing LED indicator turns on VERY quickly when using batteries. I mean I put in a brand new 9-volt and within about an hour of playing the red LED is flashing. The reverb still works but the inability to see if it is engaged or not (green or off) bothers me. Is this normal? I have seen digital delay pedals that are battery hungry but never anything like this.

    Thanks for the information

    Brad

    Yep, it's a battery eater. I tried one when I first got mine, I don't think it even lasted 30 minutes. I think the LED on mine did the same but I'm not totally sure, it was a while ago. I've had good luck with a One Spot, no noise issues.

    exact same experience here, so no worries. Verbzilla on battery is a no go!
