JHS pedal repair – Sweet Tea V2

JHS pedal repair

This is a JHS pedal repair for a good friend and guitarist who now works in London. It’s a two pedal overdrive. Its a Sweet Tea V2 – sounds great!

The pedal had been damaged by the use of the wrong power supply. It was a fairly simple repair to complete. No schematics are available for JHS pedal repairs, but there’s not much new under the sun in distortion pedals. The only funny thing about this one is that they have a top copper pour for V+ and a bottom copper pour for GND. It’s normal to pour GND only so that had me confused for a few minutes.

Dunlop MC404 CAE Wah pedal repair

Dunlop MC404 CAE Wah Pedal repair

In October last year I fixed this wah pedal repair for a lincoln customer. The pedal would not turn on, possibly as a result of the user plugging the wrong power supply in.

Often pedals aren’t economical to repair, but a unit like this is normally worth it. In this case it was a fairly simple repair, completed within the first hour and the completed wah pedal repair cost only £35.

Wrong power supply repair – MXR Carbon Copy Repair


Here’s another MXR carbon copy repair – this one had been damaged by the use of the wrong power supply. I’ve repaired quite a few of these Carbon Copy pedals – the older ones are prone to an ESD related fault that’s quite easily fixed. This is the first carbon copy I’ve seen since MXR implemented the ESD fix on their production line. They use the exact same methods that I’ve been using since first discussing the repairs with MXR in 2013.

In this case, the owner had mistakenly plugged the pedal into the wrong power supply. This pulled a very high current into the pedal and burned out some components. Fortunately I had the parts in stock and was quickly able to fix the pedal with only a small cost to the customer. Whilst I don’t recommend plugging the wrong power supply into a pedal, it’s rarely a death sentence!

If you’ve plugged the wrong power supply into your pedal, don’t panic. Just drop me a line!.
