Soul Food Problem

I hit my Soul Food and all I get is this really loud squeal.
Has anyone else had this problem? Just wondering.

Sounds like it's extremely undercooked, whack it on the head and stick it back in the fryer for a while longer. Jokes aside, have you opened it up to see if any connections have started to come loose? Poor soldering at some of the joints can have a lot of wacky effects on a pedal.

I've had this happen with some pedals. Most often, it was simply a loose jack. Tighten them up and see if that fixes it. Beyond that, if the pedal didn't get fried by a power surge, it's a loose or bad connection inside the pedal.

Could be power supply / pedal chain order related. Also try the internal buffer / true bypass switch and see if that makes a difference. It could also be a faulty charge pump IC - which is a pain in the ass to replace. I've had to do a few.

Battery, I'll swap it out. I was trying to go light and took it off my board.
If it works on the Power Supply it's staying on the PS.

Didn't know about the low power thing. Thanks
