Fixed my tube screamer...

Post by Blindboy » Tue May 31, 2016 7:55 pm

I haven't used any pedals in years, but I was wanting start using my old Ibanez Tube Screamer for occasional gain. It has been cutting out and skwawking when bumped, so I took it apart and found some cracked traces where the input jack mounts to the circuit board. "Easy fix" I thought. I soldered the traces and put it back together. Now it doesn't work at all. :wall: :motz: I'm going to see if the guy who built my amp can do anything with it. :fingerscrossed: Unfortunately, I won't have it for our gigs on Wednesday, Friday, and Monday. :sad:

:think: That sounds like a short circuit at the "fixed" part... I'd inspect it, maybe it's an easy thing to repair. :fingerscrossed:
