    In a chain or by itself?

    Write Geoffrey, I was having trouble with a switch and he ended up overhauling both of my RMC wahs for free and now they are better than new!

    My pic wah is also noisy-seems to be the norm. I had Geoffrey check it out and he said it was normal. I did a/b it with a Fulltone Clyde, which was similar in white noise. There's an old vid of Clapton in the Cream days using a wah and it's really noisy-someone posted it when I asked the same question.

    Yep, nature of the beast. I've never played one that didn't make some noise. When it's cocked all the way forward it totally rules for feeding a vibe to get that Jimi thang! Playing loud with a band it's barely audible. But, for recording I'm not sure how I would address this issue.

    Amen to that! I was having noise issue's with my old Picture Wah, and I emailed Geoffrey. I sent it to him, and he overhauled my P. Wah for free!
    And it was past warranty!

    Geoffrey has the best customer service in the business (along with Robert Keeley!).

    Mine is noisy, too. I have never felt confident in the rocker stability either. It's been in the box a while now. I need to take it and my Area 51 over to the For Sale forum soon. :facepalm

    Fella I can assure you the rocker won't fall apart.:) Guitar player in my Drum band weights like 320lb and is 6'4,he is yet to break one of my RMC wahs..I admit the new models with the tension adjustment are tricky to dial in but ya never hear that about the same pedal case on other models AS of an hour ago not one RMC case has been returned because it broke from being played...Happy Holidays...

    My WOF wah is noisy as well but it's pretty well remedied by my ISP decimeter that is in the chain behind it.
