well, i just dont know if my boss delay pedal is broken or not.
i have been told they eat batteries but mine is crazy - i put a new one in at the start of a gig and by then end of set 1 the battery is flat!!

so.. im off to get a plug, but if there is a problem with pedal that is causing this, am i running the risk of getting an electric shock by using a plug?? or are they just so bad at using batteries.

oh, by the way, i dont use the delay except for one song in that first set, so it is running the battery down when not turned on??

The link contains a list with the consumption of several pedals. Check if your pedal is in the list and so you could compare with others about the consumption.

For example, the DD-5 consumes almost 6 times more than a BD-2.

Anyway, for some pedals it is indifferent if it is on or off, they consume always battery.
