Crybaby 105Q distorting (when it's not meant to be)

    My Crybaby seems to have a horrible habit of distorting when I run more than a clean bass signal into it (i.e. synths, distortions, flangers etc). It can't be a power supply issue because I'm using a Juicebox which can supply 1A which is way more than the 105Q needs. It sounds to me like the pedal is running out of internal headroom. Have any other 105Q users encountered this?

    Whilst I'm thinking about wahs, has anyone used the Tech 21 Killer Wail or the Fulltone Clyde Deluxe with bass?

    Never had that problem myself and I run mine on batteries...

    I don't like that pedal at all. I tried my friends Bad Horsie (Yes I know it's for guitar), and it suits my needs so much better. I also like the smooth foot action it has. I've been meaning to try the bass wah from morley.
