    I love my Morley Pro Series II wah. It sounds great, but there is one problem: whenever I turn it on, I get a clicking noise going through my amp. It's endlessly annoying, especially if I use delay, because it delays the clicking! This also happens, to a lesser (and much quieter) extent with my distortion pedal. Does Anyone know how I can fix this? I'd rather not pay for a repair, and I don't even know if music stores repair pedals.

    Many mechanical bypass pedals do this... Its a sad thing, but true... My frostwave blue ringer did it, so I put it in a buffered bypass loop (Boss PSM-5). Solved the problem...


    p.s. the problem is caused by the switch storing a capasitance...

    So this is a problem that can't be repaired? I was hoping it would be some sort of grounding problem.

    I mean, it's not really that bad, but what worries me is that I will be back in the studio recording soon, and I fear that when I'm recording my bass tracks and I engage the wah, the clicking noise will end up on the CD.
