I have finally joined the 20th Century c1985 and set up a pedal board. I only use a couple of fx regularly but I got fed up messing about at gigs with batteries, leads and gaffer tape!
Anyway - one of my most used pedals is a Danalectro Cool Cat tremolo. It has a great sound but now I have got up close and personal with it to include it on my board I realise the on/off switch is playing up.
The problem is that when switching from on to off or vice versa sometimes it cuts the guitar sound right down to nearly zero. A bit of jiggling with the foot usually puts it right, but obviously it's a pain at gigs.
Advice please? Is it worth fishing the switch out (assuming I can get at it) and either giving it a blast with cleaner or dropping it in the bin and finding a replacement (anyone know if getting a replacement switch is easy/possible?).
Ideally I'd relegate it to rehearsals only and get a beefier one (Boss?) to use at gigs, but funds don't run to that.
All suggestions gratefully recieved.
