    Ok, i've searched the forums but came out empty handed. Whats a site that carries all(or most) of the neccesary parts like resistors, transistors, pots, diodes, etc for effect building? I want to build somthing like a proco rat distortion pedal to begin with. Also proco rats are pretty small, i have an old jimdunlop wah case thats not switchless that i was thinking about using... would that work?

    I think you'll get the best customer service from Steve at Small Bear.

    You could build a Rat in a wah case, and use the switch for bypass (on/off). The wah pot/pedal would probably be kind of useless, tho. But, if you like the idea of using a wah pedal as just an on/off switch, with no action from moving the pedal up and down, that's cool.
