Hi everyone, I recently bought four different guitarpedals, in one packet (a bespeco weeper, a yamaha phaser, a solec distortion+o.d. and a boss fv-60 volume pedal) all this for aprox. 150 US dollars. Now i like really like the distortion pedal, (it's got a special dist sound) and the phaser is cool. But the weeper (wah-wah) pedal makes these electric distortion noises when I use the pedal. Almost everything of it goes away after a while, but it's really anoying, makes me more insecure when I play live. Does anyone now how to fix it? is it wort repearing?

P.S Any comments on the other stuff?

peace in our time

Your pots probably need cleaning or something may be wrong with your pots; a luthier could probably do it easily.. 8)

A luthier is someone that fixes guitar equipment, usually someone very experienced, if they call themselves Luthiers. They vary in expertise. If there is a guitar shoppe near you, they should have someone there to help you out. I would ask other musicians in your area where they take their gear to get repaired.

Could it be that you need a new battery?

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Greybeard, always with the simple, but most plausible explanations. Experience, man what can ya say. Hope that's all it is for this situation. A battery.

Others have had the same problem with that pedal. Looks kind like it maybe a design in the pedal. In the would of guitar pedals you'll run across them from time to time.

If thats the case then you can't repair it; you're gonna have to buy another one probably... :? That sucks..

Maybe they used cheapo pots. If thats it, then it's a $2.00 fix to replace it with a quality pot. Probably $10 for labor if you can't solder (sp?).

I know how you feel, I got a cheaper wah pedal but it's got a very 'dead' sound to it. I get somewhat of a decent wah sound when playing the lowest notes on guitar but when playing with higher strings i can't even hear the effect. Try cleaning the pots, try putting a new battery in and all that but if worst comes to worse just buy a new pedal. After all, even if the wah pedal isn't all that great, you still got a good distortion and phaser for $150, which isn't that bad a deal really.
