    I love my Pic Wah, but the footswitch has gone south on me. Who/Where do I get a solid true-bypass replacement? The Fulltone one won't work for wahs (not tall enough). Anyone?

    Chief -

    just go to the RMC Teese site and e-mail Mr. Teese. He will make it better.

    Can you discribe the failure? A lot of wah's suffer from a badly positioned switch. This might sound obvious, but if it sits too low in the pedal housing, it'll have a problem switching.

    It may be fixable - half the time when I initially engage the Wah, it gets super noisy & when the pedal tip makes physical contact with the stomp switch, I hear a LOUD crackling & the wah sweep sounds limited - almost like a volume pedal effect. BUT when I now STOMP the sucker hard - it seems to work fine. I think the switch might just be sticky, any tips? Thanks for replies by the way - you guys rock!

    Try this. The switch *might* be adjusted too low. Remove the thin nut on the top of the switch. Take the back off the pedal off and let the switch fall down inside the pedal. There will be either a thin metal or plastic washer (or both) on the shaft of the switch. Remove it and then push the switch back into the hole. Put the spacer / washer that you took off on *top* and then screw the thin nut back on. If your problem was a misadjusted switch, that fixed it.
