|Hamish||Re: Wah pedal circuits|
A box of dead wahs. Here in New Zealand,
the average guitarist* seems to be poorer
and dumber than anywhere else. The brand
name Peavey is highly regarded and is often at
the top of the range available in the shops above the no brand
far-East rubbish. A dead Crybaby wah would
probably get sold for $100. FWIW a Boss
Metal Zone is hot property, as are those
shitty low end tweed Fender amps they sell
*case in point: I know a guy who traded his
solid state Crate guitar amp for this other
guy's crappy old valve amp. An early-60s
Anyway, the point is, it might be a long
time before an actual Crybaby wah came
up for sale, working or not. Casting
is no biggie as I already have plenty of
safety gear from welding. A leather apron,
leather boots, and always having someone
else around are about 90% of what you need.
I would say the risks are less than playing
with KT88 circuitry because at least with
molten metal, you can see that it's there.
One alternative is to pay an artist's
collective or similar group to do it for you.
