    I’m not a big wah user but I like the parked sound combined with fuzz so I gutted it and crammed it into a standard pedal enclosure.
    I only had to rewire the pot and power supply. Once I clipped the zip tie for the wiring harness I was able to get the jacks and switch into predrilled holes from another project I never finish.
    A little double-sided tape on the bottom of the pcb to keep it from shorting out and I was able to jam the board in there under the jack and it’s nice and snug. Won’t be able to squeeze a battery in there.

    Very cool. I’m a parked way junky.

    I saw Fulltone made one of those for Robin Trower. I have the guts from a Cry Baby in a ziplock baggie that I will do the same thing to. Eventually. Some day.
