Yep, just solder out the old inductor and solder in the new one and you're good to go.

Sandman:
If you look on the board, all the little components are labelled. C1 and C8 are to capacitors, all you have to do is replace the old capacitors with these new values. You also need to plug in a Fasel inductor, just order one from somewhere(these aren't at RS) and then you just solder it in. Pretty easy.

The Zakk wah also has different type components in the other positions(but the same values.) The version Dunlop sells uses metal film capacitors(usually more quiet, as in less interference), and film capacitors instead of the box type. These aren't really necessary changes, but they might help somewhat. I don't think RS has metal film resistors.

I've heard that the Zakk Wyldes are now using surface mount devices like the bigger one (the Wylde and the 535Q)?

^Someone on DIYstompboxes posted a pic, and IIRC it was through-hole PCB, but I wouldn't be suprised if they moved on to SMD.

I remember it pretty vividly though, because Dunlop uses(or used) the GCB-95 board for most of it's wahs it seems.

How do you unsolder things? Do you just heat it up?

Nope, you need either desoldering braid (a thick copper wire type thing) or a desoldering pump.

With that vacuum pump you just heat it up and use it to suck the liquid solder away.

With the braid you place the braid over the joint you're desoldering, then you push soldering iron onto the braid above the joint. The solder melts into the braid and none is left on the joint.

The Diplextor bearings are bad... you need to swap them out using foreign condenser module... I suggest the prisimatic duplicator modulator.

Good luck!

Are all the wires still strong (not broken). Have you checked under the PCB to see if theres any excess materials touching things.

It doesnt make loud buzz any more, probably because the wires were under the board (Circut board = PCB?). Also I had one screw that didn't have the rubber on the bottom, so I just left it off, could thatve been the problem too?

If you look for the DC jack on www.smallbearelec.com there is a picture that shows how it works in the catalog.

I've always wondered if a volume pedal switch was possible. I will probably look into finding a used vox wah and modding the crap out of it. Thanks for putting this up and hopefully ridding us of the daily "wah mod" threads.

Order unless you have some very special stores in your area.
(This is where having your location say more than "hello" helps.)
