This happened in the middle of a Shania tune in front of 5-6000 people. I'd never played the tune, not with this singer, never played to tracks live, or with in-ears.
But, all in all, gig went pretty good. I just kept slamming 2 and 4 and made it through. Monitor guy was awful, smoking and eating and not paying attention.
Luckily I had a spare behind me and could swap it out between songs. If I hadn't, show over.
Damn man. Im sorry that happened. I have these same pedals. I will be checking them before every setup now.
How long have you had that set of pedals? Its almost perfect that you happened to have a spare pedal hanging around.
Thanks for sharing and helping.
