  • Truetone CS7 gave up on me

    Both 500 ma ports of it died yesterday.

    I counted the I had there connected/ in use and shouldn't been even close to max...

    500 ma EHX Holy Grail
    200 ma EHX POG
    200 ma EHX 720
    900 ma

    50 ma EHX Big Muff
    50 ma SD Vapor Trail
    200 ma EHX Worm
    50 ma Rocktron HUSH X2
    350 ma

    1250 ma

    I gues I just gave to get new one. Considering CS7 lasted barely two years, I'm bit vary of them now...

    Contact them directly. Tell them the situation. They just might take care of it for you.

        Is there a max amperage for each “section”? I thought I read about that. I can’t find it in the manual now.
        Oh no.....


        Oh Yeah!

          If they don't help you out directly (they should), consider other options.

            Hmmm... I'm pretty sure it's past dealers warranty and I'm not going to ship it to US on my own expense... You think they might look to it?

              Doesn't hurt to ask.

                My guess is the regulator ICs or smd fuses of those ports died. Serviceable by a tech but tedious by oneself if new to smd solder job.

                Contact truetone support, these have lifetime warranty but I think it requires shipping it to them. International shipping can be a PITA

ID:	6045668Thanks Hank! That seems hopeful. I checked isides and it seems it took a heat for whatever reason...

                      Sounds great, though hard to come by in Europe. Thanks for suggestion.

                      If I have to get new one, I'm currently steering towards Carl Martin pro power V2

                      Seems really good for the price...

                      What do you think?

                        So, an update on this. 3 year warranty CS7 had on Thomann expired 4 of january, or something like that... Anyway 2-5 days before I contacted the due to holidays

                        Well, they were kind enough to follow it anyway, so I posted it to Burcheb... Bur... Germany.

                        Got a text message today that I have a package coming my way. So I guess they'll sending me new one, or fixed it!

                        Unless they're sending the broken one back, but hopefully not
