I have a 70's big green MXR delay pedal that has recently developed a buzz when the pedal is turned on. When the pedal is bypassed (turned off) the buzz goes away. I didnt know if anyone knew of a repair place in the Connecticut area that would be able to take a look and hopefully repair the pedal?

Actually found the issue. I just got a Pedal Pad Pro II Pedal Board w/ the Power Pad unit (to power my Pedals). Im using a 6 outlet adaptor to power the MXR and EH Qtron. The Qtron doesnt hum through this setup, but the MXR does. When i plug the MXR directly to the wall (still wired with other pedals) the noise is gone. Weird i have 9 pedals on the board total and only one (and the older pedal of course) isnt working right with the Power Pad. Any thoughts ?

Mine is the Power Pad II Pedal Pad by MKS. I dont see little dip switches. Do i have to open it up? As i said i got a 6 outlet power strip connected to the AC out which powers the EH Qtron and MXR Delay. Im curious if because the MXR is the only pedal i have that is 3 prong, maybe thats causing a grounding issue ?
