It could be a couple months or a year, depending on how often you used it. If pretty regular, I'd guess 3-4 months.

A regular 9V battery has a capacity of say 150-160mAH and if your pedal draws about 7-8mA it will last about 20 hours continius use (160/8).
You will probably turn your pedal off (when you don't play =0)and the battery will recover a little but...
