Spent an hour today chasing a horrible hum, ended up being the Wah, which due to me removing the rubber feet to aid with sticking the unit down, leaving only the bare screws on the base, has scratched through the PT black to the chassis, and was causing some weird ground loop with the power supply unit. Sorted now though with a bit of tape.

I had visions of the underneath wiring being a piece of art... yer that didn't happen. Dunno how people have the patience.

btw, I'm not left handed, but I find the Wah etc on the left so much more natural.


What are the stubby straight plugs going into the switcher and where did you get them?

Just normal mono quarter inch plugs with that spring support piece removed. Nothing special, just jaycar units from memory.

I feel like a right gimp trying to wah or press pedals with my left foot.
Maybe cuz it’s my clutch foot?
It’d be handy to have two right feet in this instance lol.

Ooh reminds me, I’ve got a wah volume I’m borrowing off a bloke I know just sitting on a shelf.

Weird huh, I'm right handed, but for some reason using my left foot I felt more in control for wah while playing standing. I have a shitty back, so I generally always practice standing.
I thought it might have been because my guitar body is resting on my right hip upper leg but who knows..just a bit of a pain when the first pedal in a chain needs to be far left.

You could get around that with a small box bypass looper thing.

I have a shit back too. I should play standing more lol.

Little afternoon project. Hacked apart an old suitcase and voila!

Never been a big pedal guy, but I've got more than usual now, so needed a place for them. Have a trem I'll probably chuck on there too. And plenty of space for the Big Muff when it comes back from being modded by Tony :thumbup: Little Dino pedal is covering fuzz in the meantime, though it doesn't work with the power supply. I have no idea what it is, but it's a velcro ripping sounding thing. Lee from Lightning Wave gave it to me years ago and he doesn't recall its origin either.
