Boss ps-2 in need

Hi all,

I have a Boss PS-2 which I really love using although gradually it has become very noisey, even turned off it seems to create way too much noise in my signal chain to use at any volume.

 

Does anyone know anywhere in the UK that I could get it serviced and even fitted with a true bypass?

 

Many thanks,

Cliff

hmmm, the PS-2 is hard to work on, it's a sandwiched double layer circuitboard ... so if I were you, I'd do the following (I have done this with some of my Boss pedals with good results)

 

sit down on your knees, take your pedal gently, mumble some comforting words, face east, slam your pedal on the floor repeatedly

unscrew the bottom, take it off take out the plastic cover, pull back the circuit and admire the innards, spray some circuitboard cleaner or contact cleaner onto the board and into the in/output jacks, wait a minute, loosen thumscrew, click FETswitch with your finger a couple of times, put everything back in place, one more slam and you're ready to go
