I'm looking for a way to sort of blend between an effects loop and a clean signal. I'm thinking a wah pedal shell with a dual gang pot with one gang wired backwards would work, but I'm not sure if it will. Thoughts?

just use a single ganged. put the input as the center lug. and one end be the effects and the other clean.

edit: a dual ganged might give it a smoother sound. just do a copy of the blend control for a guitar and use the input instead of a ground. and instead of two pup inputs you then have to outputs. that is if you want it first in your effects loop.

edit2: scratch all that. here ya go

You'll have a couple of hurdles to clear.

1 - The rack on most wah pedals doesn't have enough travel for the full 270 degree rotation on a pot. You'll need a longer rack. Or find a dual ganged pot that only has 180 degree rotation (not likely).

2 - You'll need a buffer on the clean side driving the blend pot, or you'll allow the signal to loop from output back to input on the effects side.

so something like this? it was posted in the other thread, and i think its what you want. basicly you would just jumper one of the two sides so it stays just your clean signal. you could even stick a switch in so you could have a choice between two loops or one being bypassed.

1. How would I change the length of the rack?
2. Ok, I'll put a buffer on the clean side.

i dont know if it is really feasable to extend the length of the rack, you would have to mess with the enclosure so the wah can rock further forward/back as well.

the other idea is to do something like the keeley katana (pic) and have a knob on the side. not as easy to control as a wah pedal i guess, but at least it would let you use the entire rotation of the pot.

Would it work it I changed the gear ratio? So that the pot turned faster when the pedal was moved.
