Re: any ideas?
I did check the switch by hard wiring the wah in the 'on' position, nothing.  
What I did find was that, with the new inductor, it has more gain, & more vulnerable to EI.  
I had to re-arrange my board layout- the power supply was in front of the vol pedal & wah. It's at the other end now. This eliminated some hum.  
The real culprit was the amp. I've been in my small practice room where the wah was very close to the amp. I moved it & the hum was reduced. At practice this morning, with the board about 10' from the amp  
hum = 0.  
Thanks for your help,
