Re: [Harp-L] Kinder AFB+ Questions

When the batteries on the AFB+ start going bad it makes a very unpleasant distortion.

Leaving the OUTPUT (the left side) plugged in will drain ONE of your batteries in about 6 weeks to the point where you start noticing tonal differences. It doesn't seem to affect the other battery. At least this has been my experience. Still, it's a great gadget!

I'm very interested in The Virtual Battery that Brian Walker suggested. However, I noticed that you have to order it from the UK. This may sound like a dumb question but are there any issues with voltage because The Virtual Battery comes from UK?

Subject: [Harp-L] Kinder AFB+ Questions

Hello all,

I have a couple of questions about the Kinder AFB+. At my local jam tonight, my
normal pedal rig would not put anything out to the PA. I believe the problem is
low batteries in my Kinder AFB+. Ultimately, the blue light came on and stayed
on, no matter where I put the calibration nob. Now for the questions.

* What symptoms does the AFB+ exhibit when the battery voltage gets low?
* Does leaving the OUTPUT ONLY side of the AFB+ plugged leave the pedal turned
on? I always unplug the input side (Kinder says plugging in the input side
turns on the pedal), but leave the output side plugged in to the next pedal in

I changed the batteries about 3 weeks ago and they have about 5 "playing" hours
on them. Kinder says the battery life should be something like 165 hours.

I'll put new batteries in and check it out, but I'd like to know if anyone else
has had this same problem.

Thanks in advance, Dan
