I got a hold of an old Boss HM-2 and when its hooked up it just makes a lot of static noise. Any idea as to what might be wrong?

It could be anything from simply a bad jack or faulty battery terminal to something a little more serious like an OP -AMP ic chip had failed and sporadically making noise. Should be an easy fix for around $35

Eric, My appologies. I hear more and more about the good work you've been doing. Nathan is very happy with what you're doing for his Nord Electro and I still need to get that Behringer P.A. to you to look at. 

Eric does great work and should be able to fix your pedal as well.

LOL Dave, no worries man. I don't care where he gets help from, just that he gets good advice on the repair. There are a few repair techs in the area, just I've been around longer than most.Wink
 
BTW.. Nathans NORD is done, just haven't called him yet and thanks for the kind words.
