A Power surge from badly grounded amplifier killed my DIY stompbox (a fuzz pedal), which worked before on other amplifiers.
I just moved to a place where not all electricity sockets are grounded and i didn't thought this might be such a big issue.
Factory made EHX pedals don't explode when exposed to this situation. Is there an easy way to protect a circuit against such
situation in the future?
The FX went down after connecting to amp and there was an electrical spark seen going from the enclousure of the effect to the ground (floor).
After checking the amps enclousure phase indicator blinked red on the amps metal parts and the guitar.
