Hi, recently bought a Whammy 4, but the seller didnt mention the fact that its got problems with it. Basically as i turn the dial, it selects the presets in a clockwise direction, whether i turn the dial clockwise or anticlockwise, meaning that if i miss the preset i want, i have to go through the entire cycle again to get to the one i want. (hope that makes sense!) This is probably a simple fix but im not experienced when it comes to fixing pedals.
Secondly, theres no tension at all in the pedal, its either on or off. Do i just tighten the screws?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Sounds like whomever you bought it from abused it. I'd get your money back.

The dial problem sounds like a bad/broken potentiometer (pot). Not sure how hard that would be to fix/replace honestly - I think it is digitally controlled maybe. It may not be a pot it may just be a switch. Either way - probably difficult.

Unfortunately, the answer is much the same for the expression pedal itself. Damn man get your money back. I did see on google that there are some mods to this pedal so maybe poke around in some of these places for more ideas.
