Re: Vox VDL1 noise issues

Hi Eric,

I expect a faulty unit.
...but it's a weird fault
With such a short description it's not 100% certain.

Could just be the preset you're using.

Just to be 100% sure, try hitting the upper right footswitch a few times
to change preset. Problem still there?
What if every preset is programmed by some evil previous owner?

Hold upper left and right switches down until the fx on the input turns 

Problem still there?

Try with different psu, 9V center negative (like Boss/EH)

Problem still there?

back to the seller with it then

I recently picked up a Vox VDL1, it is unusable due to very high level of background noise that occurs as soon as strings are touched (quite literally, just tapping on muted strings creates a noise sound once the level goes above some threshold). Needless to say, it is unusable as a looping device.

Has anyone else encountered noise problems with the VDL1? Any fixes?
