    No I'm not wondering where the drive knob is (I CAN see :eek: ), but I am wondering if anyone knows where in the CIRCUIT it is.

    is it before or after the wah effect :confused:

    thanks :D
  2. Im not to sure, but i think it is after judging on the sound. The drive function is the only flaw with this pedal. If u turn the drive knob on, and disengange the effect, the distortion stays in ur tone. You can bypass the drive.

    Yeah. I use it as a bass/treble selector of sorts. in the forward position I get more of a trebbly sound and back I get some major bass :bassist: and can smooooooothly swich between them :smug: . I decided to mess around with the dist models and found that the Muff Fuzz was pretty good IMO but when I have the drive AND the wah on I don't notice any diff between toe and heel :( . Thats why I asked where it was positioned in the overall circuit of the unit.

    I'm going to get a Weeping Demon in a few days (I hope :smug: ) because there are no switches operatid by the exp pedal (even the on/off switch). The V-Wah's been driving me crazy by switching through the memories or turning off when I move it to one pos or another :mad: . It seems to be really sensitive :mad: . I used to leave it in one position or another but now I've been experimenting with moving it during songs to smoothly change my tone, so it's really annoying :mad: . The reason I never had this prob before is because I used to position the wah THEN turn on the power to my FX :scowl: .

    The other reasons I'm getting the Demon is because you can create different wah's with it and I'm going to experiment with two wahs INLINE :eek: . Depending on how that goes :rollno: I might just use the V-Wah as a distortion box until I get my PODxts (both Guitar and Bass) some time after Feb/Mar depending on how things go.
  4. If your going to use the v-wah as a distorion youll need an A/B box or a looper to keep it out of ur signal, other wise your going to have a bit of noise and distortion on all the time. I found that the blues overdrive or whatever mode it was worked well.
