Got an old Cry Baby or Vox wah pedal with no LED? Want to add one? Read on.
Added bonus - if you want to add a Boss-style power jack to your Vox wah, that's covered starting in post #14.
I'll put in a big plug here for Small Bear Electronics - a great place to buy everything you need for this (or any) pedal mod.
5mm High-Brightness LED
#24 AWG Hookup Wire (two colors)
Resistor, 330 ohm ¼ watt (470 ohm optional)
1/16” Heat Shrink Tubing
3/32” Heat Shrink Tubing
First, you’ll need a hole for the LED. I put LEDs on the left side of the pedal, in front of the output jack, between the switch and the pot. If you’re left-footed, you might want to move it to the right side for better visibility. Either way, make sure you don’t drill into the gusset for the foot-mounting hole.
Here’s what it will look like when you’re done. Note that this Cry Baby has a 9-volt power jack stock.
