    If it does it once, it'll do it again. Look into replacing the switch soon.

    Thanks for your help.
    Good, maybe some dirt that eventually was taken out by what you did.

    Makes perfect sense, there are some articles and videos on the internet on how to clean a foots witch like the ones in the TC pedals.

    I have it for about 4 months, it's been working fine. Could be defective. I'll check out the warranty.

    So, when the distortion pedal is ON you get distorted guitar through your amp, but when the pedal is OFF, you get no sound? The distortion is BETWEEN your guitar and amp?

    Playing a TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion pedal. Playing through the clean channel. When pedal is cut off there is no clean channel. No volume at all. When cut on pedal works fine. I'm pretty sure everything is set up just right. Anyone know what the problem might be? I really like the pedal but it's not doing me any good if I can't use the clean channel. Clean channel works fine through looper and without pedal.
