****!!!!!!!!


My pedal wont work! first of all, I tried it and it was fine, but after about a minute it seemed like it was stuck in one wah postition. It kept suddenly cutting out and in, stciking in various positions.

I then turned it off and came back 5 mins later. Now when I turn it on,it literally acts like a killswitch.I just cant hear anything in clean and it take away 99% of my gain when on distortion.

WHY!!!!????

Whats theproblem? The Inductor looks wierd, it isnt just a black round circle. Its a 15 year old GCB-95. Help please!

^If you modded it, check all the solder joints. And also remember, if you took out the buffer, you need to add the new switch too.

Problem Solved!
When I was rocking the treadle, the thing that was ment to be turning wasnt.Its fine now!

BUT NEW PROBLEM!

It has like, 0 sweep! How can I mod it to get loads of sweep, rather than it suddenly changing?

^Mess with the 1.5k resistor. That will help to a certain extent, after that I think a new pot might be in order.

^It says right on the picture man...just look at all the stuff on there! Heh, you could even print out the picture and just show it to them.

NOW, for all you Zakk fans, heres the only difference between the Original Crybaby, and the Zakk signature:

c1-.01uF
c8-.22uF

Fasel inductor
metal film resistors
film caps

PCB shot:

Look, it even uses the GCB-95 circuit board

Hope this is still interesting to you guys...

^I know of one, but I've gotta find the link again.

You don't need the pic though, just read the resistor and cap codes and make the appropriate changes..

I just took out my chip to my Vox wah, super easy. I was wondering how much a whole new better chip would cost?

It's an inductor. To desolder, use a desoldering braid or sucker.

I was looking at the Halo one on Ebay. Would I just de solder the old one and pin it down then solder it? Would that be it?

Can you be more descriptive for simple minds like me? I just did the range adjustment but the original wah is still to "intense" (lack of a better word)

I think I can do the Zakk mod if I knew where to get the parts... Does radio shack have them?

(I'm also going to do a LED mod)
