    Curious if anyone else owns one?
    I love the sound and scoop this pedal offers however one thing I've noticed is when you back off on the pedal to the heal downward position it seems to loose all sound character to kind of an unappealing flubbing muted sound and lower volume. I've never experienced this out of any other wah. :huh

    The circuit is designed that way in order to do volume swells at the heal position of the pedal. If that is unappealing I would suggest installing larger rubber bumpers at the toe of the pedal such as these,

    Thank you for the reply, would you not put them at the heal so not to go back so far?

    You could do it either way. It may be easier to do that as you may not have to adjust the switch and pot rotation that way.
