Firstly make sure you put it in the effects loop first. Usually modulation effects are more defined when run after the amps distortion and EQ.

loop shouldn't matter. i run my phase 90 clone (joyo... far as i'm aware, it's a clone, anyway) in front of my amps to do the van halen thing and it still sounds like a phaser.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

I don't run mine in the loop either.. Maybe try a different battery in the pedal, a new pot may be in order as well.

Epiphone MKH Les Paul Custom 7 - Ronda

Still, Phasers are one of those modulation effects that most people seem to agree sounds better before any dirt. Remember that pedal placement is all subjective and is only limited to what sounds good to the player.

Anyway back on topic, check the battery if you're using one. If its a fresh battery or you're using a power supply then I would bet on the pot, which is cheap enough to justify replacing to see if thats the problem. If replacing the pot does not work and its not a vintage unit than any further repairs wouldn't be worth the cost. At that point just replace it.

I'm completely new to soldering and modding pedals. Is switching out the pot something that I can do myself or is it something that I should just get a tech to do?

I'm pretty sure DeVilles do have an effects loop. Pre-amp out is send and power-amp in is return.


That's what I thought. But I have a bad habit of second guessing myself.

if you can't solder at all it'd probably be safer to get someone to do it. I'm not sure pedals (and especially a pedal that you probably don't want to banjax up) are the place to start for learning soldering.
