    i use batteries in my dirt pedals.
    We just spent $64,000 in that bar. We're going to have to get jobs, to cover up the fact that we rob banks.

            **************** yes I do.

            I really try to avoid buying pedals that require a 9v power supply but don't allow you to use batteries. If I want to be "green" then I'll just run it with an adapter, but I don't need the builder to make that decision for me.


            lol

              If you want to put it in that context almost all products make choices for you... at least if you plan to use them.

              Why can't I run my pedals off crude oil??? for the love of god... why????

              No wait, i want to run my pedals off baby seal pelts... yes yes yes!!!

                    If I can avoid plugging something into the mains I will. I want to use less electricity not more. I bought a wind up radio a while back.

                      This MH -2 does not face the person in search of a beautiful thing such as the new article.

                      It works perfectly as much as it is surprised to be an old model.
                      As for the thing 30 years ago, it can't think of it.

                          Batteries make fuzz pedals sound cool. Other than that, popping $5 for a 9V doesn't appeal to me.
                          Great deals with: brandnewzo, DylanWilde

                            I don't use batteries for anything but one active guitar I have, and I don't buy more than two batteries a year for it. If I could somehow plug it in, I would. I don't like batteries. I've got a few GREAT sounding fuzzes that run just fine off of a 9V, I don't buy for a second that it can't be done or that fuzzes just sound better with batteries. So mark me down for "never" w/r/t pedals, and "as little as possible" with that one guitar.

                            Edit: Not like I'm living a battery-free life, though. You really can't. I don't like it but what the **************** else can you do? My mouse has an internal lithium-ion, so does my cell phone, so does my e-reader, and I use 6 C-cell batteries at a time in my Vox DA5. At least the lithium rechargable devices have batteries that last a long damn time (I guess I could say the same for the Vox portable amp, it runs for friggin' ever, been at least seven months since I put batteries in it and I've played it for hours and hours on vacation or when the power's out in a storm).

                              I voted never. I generally always use a pedal power, the only exception is my Fuzz Factory, the battery one that guy only needs changing about every other year and I'm not going to spend $40 for a special power plate thing.

                                Just sat here where I am now I can see a TV remote, a gameboy advance, a torch, a smoke alarm, a clock, a watch and a remote control car, they all have batteries in. If I included items with rechargable batteries in it would be double that. I don't think 1 extra in my fuzz pedal is going to make much difference.

                                ...and btw, I take all my batteries to the recycling and dispose of them correctly.
