The wow fuzz is an all Castledine affair now?

Makes sense really.

I just got one of these in the mail and it is fucking awesome, but the one I received is squeaking a lot. What kind of lubricant do you guys use to take care of the squeaking?

I was using my Wow Fuzz the other day and noticed that the signal cuts out for a second when I use my foot to engage the wah or fuzz, BUT if I reach under shell and just click the switch with my finger, it engages regularly with no cut out. Anybody have any tips on how to avoid it cutting out when engaging the pedal with your foot?

Sounds like you may need to adjust the position of the washers on the tb switch - usually you'll need to bring the whole switch up a dash since you may be pushing it down into that 'dead space' in the switch when you're pushing down with your foot to activate it....

I've had to do that to a couple of wahs once they're broken in a bit.

hmm, i just checked the washers for the tb switches and they are pretty damn tight, i don't think i could get them any tighter. any chance that loosening them might help?

Yes loosen the washer and move the switches higher so you do have to press down really hard to click the switch on or off. It helps with the dead space before it clicks

got it...i was misunderstanding how to raise the switch. thanks guys. i tried a couple of different heights including just full up. the fuzz side is improved, but the wah is still giving me some trouble. i noticed that if i push the wah tb switch down about 3/4 and hold it there (even with my finger), i just get dead air...is that a sign the switch is going? i tried spraying it with contact cleaner and clicking it a bunch of times, but it didn't help.
