Morely bad horsie wah issues

#1 Post by jasonmusicman » Sun May 13, 2012 12:53 pm

Hi all.
I have a morely bad horsie wah that I've used in my live rig for a few years now.
At rehearsals this week I'm having real problems with it. When in bypass mode and not in use its fine but as soon as i step on the pedal i get a loud buzz and noise, the wah is there but its really annoying, I have bypassed everything and used it straight to the amp and used both battery and mains power to see if it was the power supply causing it but no joy.
Any advice on this would be great.
cheers.

Jas.

try safely taking the pieces apart (may want to get help from a local shop Morley authorized) and clean every piece. Of u got the balls, try cleaning the optical lenses. Try contacting Morley and have them help troubleshoot. Did hku drop it lately, is it in a good condition? How used is it? Try opening the input and the output jacks and make sure the they work, are undamaged, and the wires connecting the jack to the pedal are not touching anything and are neatly soldered Nd unbroken or stringy. Similar buzzes occur when the output jack wires on a guitar touch a cable. Usually just a bit of untwisting and resoldering.

was amy in the audience :oops: sorry, couldn't help myself :D no actually I would unplug and replug the jack in my old epiphone so much one day the jack just broke. I had to have my dad resolder it. Then he switched the two wires on the new one. Then he broke it. Then soldered the wrong wires on the new.. new one. Then he broke the output jack plate, to which I used a yard of duck tape and finally fixed it. The buzzing problem is what I experienced when the wires would become frizzy and touch eachother and when the wires were soldered wrong.
