|DOH!!! Why a plastic shaft!?!?!|
So..... you knocked the knob off your Digitech Whammy? When I did, I thought it would be a cheap fix with a some sort of simple potentiometer. While the fix itself was easy, it was not super cheap. All and all it set me back at least $20 just for a little knob I probably kicked off during a show. You'll most likely need two things special ordered along with all your average soldering and pedal tools.
These are what you'll need and what will set you back the most. (Almost like Digitech wants you to spend more on repairs.)
- Rotary encoder with 24 pulses with a 15mm shaft. (ebay seems to be the only place to find these. Type those exact words into ebay. Probably $15 for a set of two. Might as well pick up an extra considering the shaft is plastic and it'll break again.
7/64" Allen wrench (Not a common size in most sets. As hard as I tried to buy locally, Amazon was the only place that had one)
You'll also need your basic soldering iron, solder, solder braid (to remove the old solder), a screwdriver, wrench and possibly wire cutters or pliers.
