(wall of text - if ur too lazy just go to the bottom question)

Well, I have an Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah (which i love, no matter what ppl think of it) but it has never given me that low end that i've always wanted. However, i recently found out that there's two little "trim pots" that can be adjusted if the small sticker under the pedal is removed. I went ahead and checked it out and indeed there they were. They're supposed to change the limit on high and low frequencies assigned to the pots for adjusting tone. I wanna change the one for the lows so i can get more of them but i'm afraid of damaging them due to the screwdriver that i can use to change them (they're really small and look like phillips screws; kinda like the ones used on sun glasses).

So the question is: will using a magnetized screwdriver mess up my wah? they're the only ones small enough to reach and spin the "pots." Of course, i'll be doing so while everything is unplugged and without a battery in the pedal.

EDIT: this is not actually a mod for the pedal since the sticker is only placed to cover the hole giving access to those two screws/pots.

Ok, thanks guys... i was just asking since i'm aware that static can mess up electronic stuff (computers mainly) and i was just wondering what magnetism would do.

Magnetism can affect magnetic data storage devices such as floppies and hard drives, but pot tweaking doesn't care.

You idiots. Stop telling people how much their gear sucks or w/e.

"Hi guys, can I use a magnetic screwdriver to adjust the trimpot on my Ibanez Weeping Demon wah?"

"WDs suck, gets a Crybaby!!!11!!"

"Ya, Crybaby FTFW!!!1!twelve"

Seriously, it's getting rediculous.

I know... The ONLY Crybaby that even appeals to me is the 535Q and even then i won't buy it. I prefer the sound i get out of my Weeping Demon since not many ppl around here use them. Plus, it's easier to use imo.

You will be fine with a normal screwdriver.
However, you can get those plastic non-conductive screwdrivers really cheap ($2 or so).
That can be useful for adjusting trimpots on a powered circuit.

Well, on the bottom of the unit there's a small silver sticker (about 1 inch big). If you remove it u'll notice there's a hole it was covering. Right inside it there are two little pots.

There...
