I have acquired a couple of Boss DC-2 dimension- c pedals over the years and i have one that seems to distort the signal passed through it almost like it is being overloaded or peaked out if you play too hard through it.
It is a blue label made in japan version and seems in good shape from the outside( no loose inputs or broken buttons, etc.).
I power it on my pedal board and am not playing a high gain signal through it( in fact it does it even with a clean non-distortion signal). It is ok if you play soft/avergae pick strength, but if you dig hard it seeems to do it.
I have tried different power supplies, batteries, different cables, putting it in different places in my signal path, etc. but it still distorts.
I have lots of boss pedals and none of them including my other DC-2 have ever had this problem. Anyone else ever experienced this with a boss pedal, or specificly a DC-2? Any thoughts or suggestions?
