    None of this is happy reading when you got a old Gould O scope!

    So, just to update on this particular situation with the Digitech MSP4 and the popped tantalum capacitors, I am happy to report that the unit is now working fine after installing two 10uF capacitors that Gary (chemelec) was kind enough to offer me. Thanks Gary!
