Music - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hello, Billy -

I hope I am correct in thinking you are asking about a guitar., the website where you posted your question, is intended for asking and answering questions on how to go about REPAIRING THINGS.

Providing valuations for anything generally require the appraiser to look at the item in person. Appraisals often depend on the physical qualities of the item in question.

I have no idea where you reside. In the USA? If I knew where you lived, I MIGHT be able to direct you to a reliable appraiser of guitars.

You may wish to post your question on an online guitar discussion forum. One such forum is The Acoustic Guitar Forum:

Best wishes.

I think it is controlled via a LDR instead of a pot. If you see a pot under the pedal then it may need a new pot but I believe they have a LDR, which is an LED/light controlled resistor system. Either of these can be fixed by an experience repairman.

LDR parts are available at It will require some soldering experience. Be sure to test the pedal's control circuity with a digital multimeter to be sure the problem lies within this area and not somewhere else.

Try this qiuck solution as it works most of the time:

Switch off your DSTV Decoder or Unplug power supply cable at rear of Decoder.
Remove your Sim card and wait 90 seconds.
Switch your DSTV Decoder back on or plug Power supply cable back in at the rear of your Decoder.
Enter your Sim card and wait for your Decoder to re-scan (about 2 - 3 minutes).

You will need to remove either the top or bottom panel to get at the jacks. There is probably a bad solder joint that needs to be repaired. You might try tightening the screws on the XLR jacks that fasten them to the back panel first and the nuts that fasten the 1/4"jacks also. I really do not recommend you do this yourself ( accessing the interior) unless you have electronic servicing experience as the filter capacitors in the power supply store a dangerous charge and are soldered to the circuit board in fairly close vicinity to the output stage.

It does sound to be fried but, you really don't have to replace it with the same exact model, look for an upgrade, I'm sure that manufacture and many others have one better. If it were my guitar, I would definitely think of it as upgrade time. The pickup is probably ok knowing that it can handle heat better due to its location and materials.
