    Yesterday, my Dunlop 105Q Wah finally arrived but I ran into kind of a weird, minor problem. When I plugged everything in, I could clearly hear a radio station coming through the amp. If I stepped on the pedal enough to stop the bypass, it went away.

    What could cause the radio to come through? Admittedly, I've got rather shabby cables and I'm wondering if I need to invest in higher-end ones. Any ideas?

    You can only sound as good as your weakest link. Crap cables will be the weak link. Also, be sure of your power supply. Isolated, grounded power is a must.
