So I bought this great modding kit off of eBay (the store was Justisinc) that came with a 3PDT, a red fasel inductor, and a Fulltone Clyde pot for something like $30-35 (it was a steal AND it arrived so fast it kinda freaked me out...I mean they're in Florida, I'm near Seattle, and it got here like 2 days after I paid for it).
Anyhow, this was my first modding project and i screwed a few things up (I posted about one of them on here when it happened...a pin on the fasel inductor broke off and the advice I got about improvising a new one actually worked...but I had crappy ass superglue that melted from being like 3" away from a soldering iron...ARRRRHGHGHGHGHHG! I worked HARD making that new pin out of a big staple, dammit!), but nothing too serious/aggregious. Most of the mod is really pretty easy (I'm 34 and hadn't touched a soldering iron since I was 12 or 13 and I finished all of the wiring and rewiring in about 20-40 minutes--and that was while being super paranoid and cautious).
BUT...since I didn't have an inductor (yeah, due to the way that I ended up removing the old one, it's...ahem...not exactly functional? ) I had left the thing alone for awhile caues that pin incident just bummed me out so much, but a local music store (A# Music in Renton...they sell PRS, Taylor, and about every insanely expensive guitar and amp you can think of...plus they're awesome to deal with, unlike some businesses *COUGH COUGH* Guitar Center *COUGH*) actually special ordered me another fasel inductor (I was too childish and stubborn to just get one from eBay...I needed it in my hand NOW!).
So now it's all together, and sounds *AMAZING*. I'm a lifelong Hendrix fanboy but that's the extent of my love for anything remotely like hippie jam music (I pretty much loathe most classic rock too, with the obvious exceptions)...I'm mainly a metal guy and I hadn't touched either of my wah pedals for years (have that Vox that I got in 8th grade and a Crybaby to replace it when its pot started crapping out after 5 years or so), unless I was playing Hendrix songs or something, cause I just didn't have any use for that sound. Whoa Nelly...that ain't the case now.
Now here's my question (don't ask me why i didn't just ask the question up front instead of my long preamble...): My 3PDT sticks up just enough that when the treadle is in the down position, it touches just enough to make a feint clicking sound and it comes out my amp, too. I've tried using various spacers inside the pedal to shorten the shaft/switch, but then I can't turn it off and on, even with the teeny, tiniest grommets. I've also tried using the full-sized grommets with no spacers and it's the same thing. Oddly enough, I compared the old SPDT to the 3PDT and the old one is actually notably taller and wider than the 3PDT.
Anyone else have this issue?
