    Hi everybody :D

    I have question about powering :D

    Do I have to unplug my DC BRICK of my pedalboard each time I stop playing or can I leave it plug all the time? I have this question, because when the DC BRICK is on, a blue light always stay on it and my Boss loopstation RC3 always show the number in red light when I leave it on. I don't know if you understand? I unplug it because I don't know if it hurt my DC BRICK and my RC3...

    And I read somewhere that when you finish playing, you should always unplug your Fender blues junior III (my amp). Do I need to do this?

    Sorry for my really stupid question,, I really feel stupid :(

    Thank you if you can help me !

    Personally, I place all my power adaptors on one of those surge protectors. Then when I finish playing i turn off my amps and then just flick the switch at the wall.

    LEDs have a general life expectancy of 50 000 hrs, so eventually they will burn out
