    Interesting to see these are the results:

    dunlop 1990 pot - 124k
    hot potz 2 - 104k
    chase tone pro 100k - 96k

    Im gonna play around and see what happens when I add resistors like you suggested,...

    I considered that already, I might buy a bunch of cogs and try it out, the results would be what im looking for, I might need to grind the pedal at the back so it can go lower.

    Thats a good idea, ive already tried that on these mini pots, only problem is it isnt always consistent but i'll try it on these pots anyway, thanks for another good tip.

    haha yea true but this started as an experiment to try to make the sweep the way I want and now I find its not that easy. Its not overwhelming all these knobs once you get one and use it, its easy to...

    Ive got a few stock wah's ill try it on one of them thanks.

    All I know is I heard theres a specific type of Vox wah pot that has a longer taper or travel or whatever its called. Its disappointing nobody has picked up on that and made one. Having said that I...

    Ive seen that before but it blew my brain, still a noob at this, I have it bookmarked some good troubleshooting tips on there.
  8. Ive never liked the travel of the main pot on a...

    Ive never liked the travel of the main pot on a wah, like the hot potz 2 or a new chase tone I bought or an even older 1990's pot, its too short and turns to bass too soon when you rock the pedal...
  9. oh yea I forgot the DC thing, im actually...

    oh yea I forgot the DC thing, im actually adjusting the bias on a transistor and resistor, either way its totally unavoidable then, damn, thanks for the info anyway guys much appropriated I can get...

    Do you think he used cheap pots on purpose to keep cost down thinking people wont be too bothered about the scratching? if quality pots fix the issue id rather upgrade them.

    Makes you wonder what they are doing thats so right.

    Thats a relief to see that pic, it looks like it could be unavoidable in some cases or he just cant be bothered correcting it, I find it too annoying to live with because it gets louder with gain and...

    I set the MM to volts and touched the outer lugs of the pot and its showing me a different reading depending on which way the pots dial is turned, as if im measuring ohms. Its going from 0.0v to...

    Yes the pots are replacing fixed resistors.

    So its a voltage issue then probably, at least im closer and its something ive overlooked, and no I really want pots on the volume control at least and...

    ok I found the right schematic, looks like I could be wrong about the Q3 being the same as Q0. The Q3 is on the far right side.

    btw ive removed all the buffer components on this board so...

    lol I will try and find the right one, its weird mine is so illusive and I have a few wah's like this. Im not sure how to do the voltmeter thing yet, I dont know what volts to expect, should it be...

    This is the schematic, I envy you because I dont fully understand them yet, and it doesnt help when my resistor/cap/transistor location numbers dont match what I see in schematics.

    Ive only ever experience the above part of your comment but in this case its not loose connections or dirt, ive had this issue from just these 2 parts of the circuit and another 1 which I changed to...
  19. Potentiometers always have static scratching noise

    Hi all just having a problem for some time now with potentiometers (even good ones) always give a static scratching noise when you are physically turning them, but the other pots ive added in other...

    Thanks for that info, it seems the problem I had was a temporary one because its ok now, I tried the switch thing and it worked ok, so I tried the pot again and this time its working ok, strange....

    This is the thing though, ive tried that and other value pots but it always sounds so kick ass without the pot and resistor, its annoying because I want that intensity and control of it, with the pot...

    wah sounds better without resistor

    Ive modified a wah pedal with the Q resistor mod, I removed the resistor and soldered 2 wires and added a 1k pot and it works well, but I then removed the pot and found that it sounds even better, so...

    Thats spot on what I was looking for, the configuration you just explained is all I wanted to know, very thorough too thanks man. Thanks again everyone.

    I found this to convert a 2 pole to 1 pole,...

    Yea thats what I figured again thanks for confirming it, so I really need a single pole then for this job, at least ive learned how to use them anyway, still not sure about the wiring points though...

    But doesn't that mean only half the positions will work? I really need all 6 and maybe more it depends how the test goes.

    edit: I think I know what to do now, Im gonna try something. I think I...

    Thanks, I just realised where im going wrong, I actually need a single pole for what im doing, im just changing the value of 1 resistor on the board and this switch is for changing 2 different...
