Started building a pedal board from scratch a few months ago, and got a 2nd hand Digitech Ex-7 that appeared to be in excellent condition and built like a tank. Less than a 2nd hand Whammy pedal with Clyde McCoy and Crybaby effects thrown in? Bargain I thought...

3 months down the line and in the middle of playing at home the expression pedal itself has all of a sudden obliterated at the heel and sent a crack all the way to the toe!
This was a little disconcerting as at 10 1/2 stone I'm not exactly a big muncher!

Anyway, I was wondering if the expression pedal from a Crybaby or similarly cheap and readily available expression pedal would fit or if I need to contact Digitech for replacement parts?

Does the pedal still work? Can you move the axle that the pedal part moved? Does it work?
#3
Yeah the pedal still works, I think the axle part is fine, it's just the actual footplate thats all cracked. It's only being held together by the rubber!

Try soaking it in a solution of ammonia and bleach. After about an hour, everything will be better.

If it's just a crack, why not superglue the plastic parts back together?
#6
Because its several cracks with some smaller pieces having done a runner! And with my glueing skills I wouldn't trust my self to use again properly!

It won't fit in a CryBaby shell. Contact DigiTech.

Looks like I'm getting the last treadle in stock in the UK for this discontinued model. I feel so special!
