    I have a few, great pedals. Make sure the fx loop jack contacts are clean. The signal of the pedal runs through the fx loop jack, I've had a couple that didn't sound right and that was the culprit. If you need new jacks, I found that Fender stereo jack part#0059922000 is a perfect replacement. The jacks have to be the low profile PCB board mount ones since its a tight fit inside. The more commonly found tall PCB board mount jacks won't fit. One of the jacks only uses one set of contacts, so just clip off the unused lugs on the replacement so it will fit on the PCB.

    I wonder if anyone has ever used the FX loops in those? I thought about hardwiring it internally to eliminate the problem.
