M5 Issues

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by GrumblyRumpus, Aug 17, 2012.

  1. Has anyone else had problems with the model selector knob on their M5? I've had two go out on me. Basically what happens is I can press in the switch to change the type of effect, but it doesn't do anything, but turning the knob will change the model.

    I bought it at guitar center and got the pro coverage so they replace it for me, but it still sucks to have a pedal that isn't reliable.

    Does anybody have a fix for this? I've thought about sending it in to get modded, but if I do that and it breaks again, I'm pretty much screwed.

    Any suggestions?

    I had an M9 that did that. It's actually super easy to fix. Pull the knob off and put a tiny piece of masking tape ( of two) on the end of the post to shim it up.
