    Mjallow,

    I'm very happy with my 105Q Wah.
    In LIVE situations it seems to be very sensitive to movement on the stage.

    During some stage movement on the floor it becomes active for a jump or two and then turn off again.

    This can be very anoying, if I do a classic Rock N' Roll pump during a guitarsolo.

    How can I work around this problem?

    Does the pedal feel loose at all? if so maybe this could be why it switches on easily with movement on the stage and could to with tightening. Or you could keep your foot on it all nite so it doesnt move, OR you could sell it! :bag:

    My guitarists is very insisitive, almost not sensitive enough.


    We've given up on dunlop for wahs , 2 gigs in a row it has malfunctioned, interrupting the song.

    switching to Vox.

    Hi Craggsy, It feels Tight/Loose as it should - but I'll doublecheck later today.

    - Thanks.

    the little button at the heal of the 105q is probably not getting pressed down properly by the rubber thing. i got mine off of ebay used with that problem and fixed it by taping a small peice of rubber on the button.

    whatever you do, DON'T sell it... that pedal kicks too much ass
