Hi all,

I picked up a faulty EBS Octabass pedal. It works, but when you are not playing, there are constant blips/bops. Essentially, if you even touch a string, you get some signal being generated. Sounds as if the issue I have is very similar to the one described in

I've done a fair amount of reading, and recall somewhere that it could be a pull down resistor (which seems logical to me). Is there an easy way to find which resistor it is from a schematic (the schematic is on the forum)?

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.
