I recently bought a Mooer Shimverb off ebay. I'd owned one before so I was familiar with the sound. When i got the one from ebay, it was really noisy. It sounds like the pedal is sucking all the tone out.. almost like a highly compressed digital sound when i play through it. I opened the pedal up, and everything looks intact.
I can post clips later to show you the sound. This is a great pedal, and I really want to figure out what the problem is. If there is any info i can give you all to assist me, let me know!
also, ive got a TC Helicon Digi-delay pedal. its the "Nova Repeater" -- it worked great for months, and then I think something happened with the surge protector. Now when i turn the pedal on, these two green lights come on, and the pedal is extremely noisy. doesnt work.. it seems like something "shocked" it and now its messed up -- if i can get these fixed, itd be worth it. but maybe its just fried....
so... any advice?

see if mooer will replace it? fat chance, but worth a shot if your mandarin isn't too rusty. or send it back to the ebayer and say its broken. probably your best bet is just get a refund and buy a different one.
or might as well just buy a new one for $40 or so. thanks ren!

Strip the setup down to the bare essentials. Just the amp, two cables, the pedal, and the guitar... and a power supply too, of course. If you still have the issue, try a different pedal. If the issue goes away, it's most likely the pedal that has issues. Get it returned ASAP and replace it.
