Ok guys, first post ever! I'm wondering, have any of you experienced this? I got this guitar crybaby wah, and of course it didn't do too well on bass, so I did some mods listed on this site: http://www.wah-wah.co.uk/
I did the obviously sweep frequency change so it would even work for bass, then I also did the gain mod, volume, and increased midrange. So now I have a working wah which is reasonably adjustable, but I also got another pedal out of it: a distortion.
When you rock it all the way to the toe side, and turn up the gain all the way (I changed the gain resistor to a pot so it's adjustable), I get this REALLY good sounding light to medium overdrive sound. The tone of the overdrive can be governed by how far to the toe the pedal is rocked, it's really interesting. It's also really touch sensitive to how hard I pluck. Blending it with my clean signal really tops off the tone. Well, I'm a rambling man, what do you guys think? Is this a good idea? Anybody done it before?
