Hi there.

I recently bought a Mister Crybaby combined volume and wah pedal. I have only had it for about a day and noticed that it was making a very loud crackling noise when on volume mode and in the back position. I tried to clean out the pot with some cleaner but the problem remains.

Any idea what I could do to fix this or should I just return it?

If your pedal is faulty straight out of the box, or with little use, you should return it straight away and swap it for a new one.
