    Fellow Bassists :)

    I have got a Fender Jazz Bass (4 string) with a fender 15 watt prectice amp. I have recently purchased a Vox Wahwah pedal, but when I use it i seem to get a hell of a lot of "scratching" noise (when moving pedal).

    I have checked the contacts on the PCB etc but to no avail. Has anyone got any idea how I can get a clean Wahwah sound out of my pedal?

    Cheers!

    Yep,
    I reckon it'll be that the Pot has worn out,fairly common problem I'm afraid.You may be able to replace it with the ones that Dunlop sell as a spare for the crybaby.
