    I've got an old wah pedal sitting around the house that I think I want to turn into a volume pedal? How hard/expensive is this mod and what kind of parts do I need to do this?

    A volume pedal is about the simplest effect you could think of.
    You need a pot for the pedal and that is all.
    Typical options are another manual pot in series to adjust maximum volume and a stomp switch to turn the pedal on/off.

    Right now I've got a dunlop bass wah. It already has the switch, I just need to know if a standard pot will work, or if I need some kind of specialized pot that will turn down as I press on the pedal?
