Electro-Harmonix The Worm - SO MUCH NOISE!?!

I took my Electro Harmonix the worm out. Had not used it in about 2 years. And it makes a huge amount of noise... I can't use it!?!

I listen to recordings I did with it, and they are a bit noisy (in a funky way), but not as bad as this... or was it?

Anyone have the worm... is it this noisy or is something wrong?

Someone suggested to use less power than the 24v that comes with it.

welcome to all EHX effects ive ever used. Ive never noticed it on my big muff, but its supposed to be noisy. Every electro harmix pedal ive ever used was like that, if it was altering a clean signal. Get a noise supressor or whatever guitarist put in thier signal path to calm it down. Alot of famous people use those pedals so theres kinda be some way to calm them down.

I have a few of their pedals that I love, but some of them are just way too noisy. I bought one of the reverb pedals and sold it the next week because it was too noisy to record with.

i had the same experience with the Holy Grail reverb. beautiful, lush sounding verb.......but the noise was just a deal breaker. i took mine back. still looking for a good pedal reverb, too.


cheers,

Ditto on the Clone Theory Stereo Chorus. I liked the sound, but it was WAY too noisy to record with. I'm saving up for the Fulltone ChoralFlange, which costs 3X the EH.

I just picked up an old Boss CE-2 like I had in high school. Sounds great and I think I am going to get the Robert Keeley mods on it.

I really dig the Voodoo Lab Analog Chorus if you are a CE-1 fan. I paid $25 for it (Guitar Center didn't know what they had) but I would pay what they usually sell for, it's the best chorus I've come across. Great on electric piano as well.
