no signal from my junlop bass wah

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by violatedppl, Aug 20, 2005.

  1. I powered up my board pluged my bass in and hoped to start jammin with my band(havent played with the drummer for 4 months but still very tight as a band) anyway. I disconnected my effect loop and boom sound. pluged it back in and nothing. so I started disconnecting pedals. luckly the wah was first to get and it fixed the problem. now I need to know what it wrong with the wah. I run everything off of a wall wart and I have never had a problem. aolthough I noticed a few weeks ago after playing that was for a few minutes it was kill the signal in a few spots. not thiers no signal coming out of it at all. any help would be appreciated.

    Could be the potentiometer going bad, or a loose connection, or a bad jack. Or you could try it with a battery and see if the power jack is acting up.

    I had a similar problem with my original Dunlop Bas Wah. When it was on a floor it was ok. But when I used it at home on the carpet it started cutting out. When I step on it the pressure would compress the carpet and the power jack would get a little stress on it and not make a good contact. :)
