    ..........Ok I don't know if it's sick :meh:


    I have a Maxtone Cb wah wah pedal. When I move the pedal up and down it makes this staticky woosh sound.

    What is making it so staticky?
    How do I stop it?



    Thanks
    Jim

    Edit: This started to happen a few months ago.

    Sounds like a scratchy potentiometer to me. Take it to an electronics shop, it may either need to be replaced or cleaned.
