Bad Horsie 2 Buzz

My BH2 sounds ok when working with a battery, but when AC connected makes a terrible noise. Is it normal? Maybe is because itīs connected with the same cable than the rest of effects?

I have the same problem with any of my FX. Battery = no noise, A/C adapter=noise.

Never could figure out why, so I only use batteries now.

The Bad Horsie expects the Morley adapter, which has a wierdish amperage. I found that any non-Morley adapter will make a Bad Horsie sound like poo. The noise you hear is probably due to excessive current, or bad grounding in the building.

I'll second iain. I use the Official Morley adapter with my 2. (MF had a sale for a while-buy the pedal get adapter for no $$.) I get no noise whatsoever. FYI.
