    I recently decided to replace the L1a inductor that comes in the stock Vox V545 wah as my wah was losing lots of volume as the trebel [toe down] increased.1st I tried a new pot but the problem remained. So I tried a stock dunlop 500mh inductor and now its a volume pedal, with no 'wahing' whatsoever. But the volume is fine now so it probably was a bad inductor. But shouldnt this dunlop 500mh inductor work in a vox v845? What are the specs of the L1A thats in the Vox v845's?
    Anybody have an L1A laying around in your parts drawer that you may have swapped out for a fasel?
    :(

    your tone tank is one the way! i made it with correct pinout, but only two pins.

    the v845 responds well to mods also, except there are a bunch of little radio suppression networks mixed in with all the other SMD stuff on the board. makes it a little harder to find where everything is, etc. let me know if you want to mod it any. i did one for a local keyboard player, he loves it.
