hi, im a reasonably experienced guitarist of about 8 years now. i purchased an arion delay pedal, which i thought was quite funky and had a place in my sound and music for infrequent use. but the switch to pedal doesnt work, so its constantly on... how would i go about fixing this? i have a soldering iron and lost of materials at hand.

i just asked because im not familiar with that pedal.

since its momentary that means electronic switching. could be a bad switch itself, or a bad transistor, or any other component in the switching circuit.

open it up and momentarily short the two switch lugs together. that should turn the pedal on and off. if that doesnt work, then it gets fun. i wont be of much help then. it'll be easier to find the switching circuit if you had a schematic.
