    I have a magicstomp, great little unit, I only use it for the 'fx' side, but all of a sudden the unit has developed a problem, I only use the 'mono' output, but the VOLUME of the signal has dropped dramatically, if I turn the output full up, it is just about usable, the other output is fine, no problem. Would anyone know what I should look for when doing an internal check? or, what might you think has happened?
    Thanks in advance,

    Jon

    I own two Magicstomps and on both of them the mono output went out completely. Try the right output and see if it works. It must be some design flaw or something. The right output works just fine as a single output.

    Ah!, must be a design flaw. The other out works fine, but don't you find it sounds 'odd' because it is the right side of the stereo feild? or is it just me.

    Try reinstalling the firmware (2.10 if you have it) to address the problem, it usually works. This problem effects maybe 10% of models that I've heard of.
    I had a problem with the signal not so long ago, I simply cleaned the jack sockets and re-soldered a bad joint and it was fine, but that was with an intermitent signal problem.

    Thanks for that JW, I will try that out later, no bad joints in it though.
