Ibanez Wh10 Wah true bypass

Go and buy a Carling DPDT switch from an electronics compay like Digikey or Mouser. I get mine over the net at www.sovtek.com , but there is a minimum buying amount of $75.00. Maybe the wah already has a DPDT, but I doubt it. Next, go to http://hail-eris.com/~stompbox/pedals/ and look for a true bypass wiring schematic. This page is my source of info in the homemade stompbox area, ANY questions you have will be answered there in one of the links. But before you jump for a soldering iron, realize that true-bypass is not always the answer. In most stompboxes, like BOSS for example, they use FET switching and the sound is buffered. You might lose some high-end with true-bypass due to cable degredation. If you have low quality cables, true-bypass wil make things WORSE. * * * * * * * *Good Luck
