hey so i have an old dod fx-17 wah/volume pedal that was working fine up until a few days ago when my dad tried to do who knows what with it. now the wah setting just feeds the signal through, not modified just somewhat colored, and the volume setting doesn't work at all, just silence. so here are the pictures of the guts, if you can see anything wrong with it or have some sort of schematic that would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

I just got my first DOD pedal a few weeks ago in a trade myself. My best advice as I'm not on that level yet is to try the seymour duncan forum. Lots of people really really into electronics are on there to help you out because it's going to be difficult to get a schematic of that pedal I can imagine as that would be every manufactures nightmare if the schematic is out and available.

Alright thanks for the advice I'll head over there now. Which DOD pedal did you get and how are you liking it so far? I've found them to be one of the most underrated pedal brands.

DOD FX-17 Technical Info.html is the "Home Page" or Index page for the DOD FX-17 section

I backed up most of his site (With his permission) when he said it was no longer going to be online.

I do plan to put that site back online for archival purposes at some point.
And yes, I asked Paul if he was ok with that as long if I only put it up after his was taken offline.
There is a SHIT TON of great info on that site.

Not my site but I talk to the guy who made it often (We both live in Nevada which seems to be a rarity online).
But I've got loads of schematics, several thousand, related to pedals, some amps and all sort of musical related stuff (but mostly pedals).
