I'm have a Cry Baby JH-1 that I've had just sitting around for a few months. I got it out and dusted it off, cleaned it up a bit and went to use it. When I switch it on, I can hear it kick on and it works fine until I get to the full heel down position it makes a loud feedback type squeal and my guitar has no signal. If I move out of that position, it goes back to normal. i cracked it open and everything in the circuitry is perfectly fine. Any thoughts?
Is it plugged in backwards? Because that sounds exactly like what wahs do when plugged in the wrong way around.
nah, I figured it out. It wasn't the pedal, it was the amp. The amp I was hooked up to couldn't handle the low end from the heel down position of the Hendrix wah. What can i say, the amp was made in the 50's.
