Nothing wrong with this mod if thats all you need, but the OP and other are having issues with the pot's etc... A solid build and sealed is a must in these pedals for sure.I had a Goodrich volume pedal. A nicer model - it took 4 months of regular use to develop a scratchy pot... Sold it and picked up an Ernie Ball VP Jr. for $45 used.
I sent it to T1M for modding - installed split buffer to take the tuner out of my chain and maintain signal, and it sounds incredible! All for less than $100.
I highly recommend that route. Goodrich has too many horror stories to believe the success stories, IMO.
I've got this in my Goodrich. Works great. The pot from Goodrich did go bad too quickly, but this pot is great. Here's where you can buy it direct from Tom Bradshaw. Great service! http://www.songwriter.com/bradshaw/potentiometers.phpI would try the Dunlop Pot in the Goodrich before giving up on it. Been using it for quite a while with out any problems.
