    So I have a carbon copy delay that I added an expression out to so when you hit a momentary switch it ramps up the regen. It works well until I put it back in the enclosure. When the pedal and expression plug are both touching the enclosure at the same time the pedal will only do a slap back type thing and the expression does nothing. I'm new to this and I'm not really sure what's going on. Thanks for the help. Here's a pic of it. [​IMG]

    if something works outside an enclosure and not in, something is shorting.

    What I would do probably takes the most effort but the least thought and troubleshooting. I would just cover the inside of the pedal in tape.

    Alright thanks. Would electrical tape work? Or duct tape?

    Well you'd have to prevent all of the metal areas of the Jack from grounding to the enclosure.. this includes the face the shaft and the washer/nut. I, for that reason, use plastic jacks for all but the output jack in pedals.

    Clever taping can work, just be observant and diligent

    Electrical.. duct tape is messy and working with it on that small an assignment can be awful.
