    Hey, Ive just had my Moog MuRF for about 2 days now, got it from musictoyz.com, anyways it was working perfectly find up until last night when all of a sudden it just stopped working basically. Heres exactley what happens: I turn on my amp, all I hear is this weird high pitched feedback sound comming from only the murf. this is when its TB'ed, when I actualy activate it the sounds gets louder, and you hear a bit of a pattern in it. Im realy worried what might be wrong, Im using the right power supply, and Im running it with about 13 other effects, but I tried it on its own and the same thing happened. Please help me out, what do you guys think might be wrong and what can I do to change it? I realy need it for a gig tomorrow night, and sending out isnt an option at this point, if I did, I wont have it and planned on using it on a few songs. Thanks in advance, I know you guys will help out somehow.

    Which power supply did you use, the Moog power supply or the Voodoo Lab?

    Sometimes it helps if you wait longer than 6 minutes between bumping a post when you really want a reply.

    *Bump*

    I just picked up a murf. I use a one spot power supply with the centre positive polarity tip. The noise it's adding to my rig is unbearable!

    Will there be any difference if i get the moog power supply? any ideas what the problem may be?

    hey man,...well, if you bought it brand new then the moog supply should be included with it. They include a powersupply with all their pedals. I have 2 and both came with it. But, yea the noise shouldnt be there anymore once you get the moog supply. Its an awsome pedal.

    incidently its not TB ...not the ones i played on anyways...i think you can make out the difference when u stomp on it

    the noise that u describe is characteristic of power supply problems...the patterns u describe are probably because of what the pedal does...

    happened with a red witch chorus i was once trying....connecting a different power supply worked:crazyguy

    Are you sure you like your delay before OD/distortion? Just checking to see if you've tried it with delay at the end of the chain yet...

    I bought it second hand for $300 (great deal IMO); seller didn't include any power supply. I've been using the one spot with the positive tip on a fulltone '69 (the only other pedal i own which is center positive). I also get a buzzing noise when using the '69 but still bearable. With the murf the noise is totally unusable.

    I do wonder if it's a problem inherent with the one spots. because i own three and all three when used with the positive tip emit that awful noise! I'll try out the moog power supply and hopefully it'll work for me.

    did you ever get yours working, marko? no offense, just saying, it's your thread about the problematic MuRF with no resolve, are you sure it's just his power supply (like the one you have)?
