Hello there, I am currently fixing a VOX Wah Wah pedal. The bypass works - the wah wah effect does not. How exactly does one check to see if each individual component is working? Is it by using a multimeter? How exactly can I do that? (I've put in a 9v battery and tried seeing if there was voltage around the circuit, but I think I am doing it wrong.) Can anyone give me some tips? Here is a picture. http://i.imgur.com/LKq0bSY.jpg

Don't get me wrong, I love acoustic guitars... But I love a good crazily distorted guitar that almost sounds like a synth. Rage against the machine's guitarist Tom Morello epitomizes that wild sound for me. Most good bands have an instantly recognizable sound and one of the ways a guitarist can distinguish zer self is to use a unique set of pedals. Now you could go buy a set and find just the right setup for your taste... or you can build your own. Best part is, there's no soldering involved:Bevis Boardvia:Make

Question, I would like to build a simple wah circuit, and i looked in Tonepad.com and it gave one result but the circuit was a distortion pedal, it was weird, but anyways, ive heard that wah's are easy to build the circuit but the build is hard, the pedal part. sooo any circuits anyone knows of? thank you!!!

OK, soo, i would like to start making some effect pedals, i play synth, guitar, and sing a bit, what do you recomend building for a good starter effect? i am already into electronics, i have built a couple amps, an oscillator synth and some other random electronic projects, but now i would like to try my luck on effect pedals, and i dont exactly know what effect is the one i should build first, im looking for something not too hard but a challenge that also has an awesome reward, ideas?

I'm no designer but here's an idea I've been stewing on for some time. I've hunted but not found any designs for a pedal powered tractor. The very early tractors were very large;could to lots of work; but they only had 2 or 3 horsepower. They ran so slow you could count the piston strokes. The designs were simple and they were work horses. Our new high horse powered gas tools often cann't do nearly as much. The old machines used heavy flywheels; slow to start but they kept on rolling. With the improvements we've made in bike gearing systems why not make a pedal powered tractor that could do serious work with that same heavy flywheel technology?

I was planning on making a motion detector with my roommates but that proved a difficult first project so now we have the plans for a distortion pedal for guitar.Here is the design for it and here is where we are going to buy the equipment (except for the audio jacks which we bought at Radio Shack already).Here are a couple of things we need to know first:1) The plan calls for two 10uf electrolytic capacitors, and the store has those but of 5 varieties with different voltages, which ones should we get?2) What kind of capacitors do we need? Ceramic disk?3) The plans call for a 0.0056uF capacitor yet I couldn't find one like that, can I just substitute one similar? If so, which one?4) If anyone wouldn't mind, could someone explain how this circuit works? Preferably answer the other questions, but I would like to learn how it works also.Thanks a lot to all who answer!

I bought a DS1 not so long ago and the battery had died. I didn't want to go to buy a new one so I decided stupidly to connect a 12V plug that I had lying around. It was working fine for a minute until I started to notice a burning smell. The pedal stopped working altogether and now I'm left without the pedal I use most, and don't have the money for a new one. I don't know wether to throw it out completely or try and fix it if it's just a small component that needs replaced. If i put a battery in the light comes on, sound still goes through, but no distortion. Any ideas on what I should do? Cheers in advance

IDEA: Using recycled neodymium magnets glued recessed into a gel insole and magnets on pedals I'm hoping to make it easier than cleats on special shoes. Of course you won't get the locked in power of straps or clippless cleats .This would be ideal for mud,gravel, quick commuting on regular bikes,bmx,mtb,people who what some full leg power on the up stroke but want to put your foot anywhere on the pedal you want.

I was working with my Dremel the other night and I noticed my not-working Crybaby out of the corner of my eye and started thinking that it would be a perfect speed controller for my dremel. I think I'm gonna tear it apart and see what it looks like inside and see maybe where to go from there. Probably would like it to have a footswitch somehow that will turn it off or when it is pushed all the way in it will turn off. Just an idea. If anybody has some suggestions or maybe could build it and make an instructable that would be awesome.

My VOX Wah Wah pedal (V847) is not working. The bypass is working. However, when I turn ON the wah-wah effect - there is only a clean sound of the guitar and a very THIN sound of the wah-wah, it sounds more like a VOLUME pedal than it does a wah-wah pedal. I believe this is the schematic: http://www.voxamps.com/downloads/circuits/wahwah93.jpg From what i've gathered, the problem lies in the capacitors (because apparently capacitors are what create the wah wah? i'm not entirely sure myself) I've replaced the C2 (4.7MF) and C3 (.22MF) What could be the problem? Please help! P.S. are MF, mF, and uF all the same? Thanks.

Greetings! Background: My xmas 'from me to me' present was a Roland TD-9K electronic drum set. I have a concern with the drum kick. I think I have it set up properly and it's either a setup problem or a user/technique issue. The instruction manual says you can adjust (insert list of a bajillion variables) and 'set it up how you like' basically, without explaining how each variable effects the end result. My problem: The kick pedal is set up as per the instructions and occasionally (every few beats) double-taps. The hits are extremely close together, and are hardly audible if you're not listening for them, but they do exist in the midi data. (i.e. 1/64th beat later) The hammer is physically bouncing and hitting twice, it's not just spurious noise or an oversensitive pickup. The brain lcd has a What I can adjust: Technique: If I move my foot a bit it changes the harmonic frequency of the hammer, and it can solve the problem, but sometimes my foot ends up back where the problem exists The pedal assembly: -Spring return tension -- more tension = ability to hit faster but more effort required, problem exists everywhere from full soft to full firm. -Hammer location - it's centered on the sensor per instructions, and strikes flat and square. I could move the pedal off to one side slightly, or change the effective length of the hammer so it hits higher or lower (would change the periodicity of the system). -Angle of the sensor - per instructions is set straight vertical. -Electronic filtering - I can tell the brain to ignore hits for a period after a given hit to eliminate the spurious hits, but this wrecks my ability to intentionally use techniques where fast double-hits are wanted -'Home' angle of the hammer -- the angular moment with which the hammer moves with each kick. Setting this too far away tends to make it hit the top of my foot (quite painful), and too short means its hard to make it work. Other Thoughts: I play barefoot, should I have a set of drum shoes? Would that make a difference? I want to use these also to play rock band thru the midi adapter (people report its fun) -- but the double-hits would seriously impair scoring ability, and I need a way to fix them!
