    I have a vintage Maestro Mini-Phase Pedal. I love the way it sounds. If you ever heard the band Little Feat it sounds just like their guitar sound in the song "Rock & Roll Doctor". They used Fender Strats, not Gibsons, and it is a distinctive sound. Anyone know what one of these is worth? Please post!

    Reverb and ebay have them anywhere from $180 to $200. I heard the demo with the one with three speeds and it sounds awesome. I bet yours is better with the pot to fine adjust your setting. Nice piece of gear there, congrats on having it.

    By the way Spar, for what it is worth, some say the older 535Q sound better than the newer ones. The one I had sounded "so so" to me compared to what I have now.

    I've used the wah in a one position spot for the tone somewhat at times. Frank Zappa and other artists have used it this way also. Frank was also known for going off with the wah like on some of the recordings on overnight sensation. If you decide to get another wah I would go with the MXR Custom Audio Electronics (CAE) MC404 dual inductor wah. I also had a 535Q which I had a few days and took back before I got the MXR MC404. There is one great demo on youtube where some kid from England compares his older 535Q and a new MXR MC404. That was what convinced me to take back the 535Q. It cost about $20 more but way well worth it. After I had my new MC404 was when I became brave enough to work on my old Crybaby GCB-95. I figured if I messed anything up I still had my cool new MC404. Both the red and yellow Fasels sound great on the MC404. I have left the "Q" settings on both stock from the factory setting because to my ears they both just sound right to me. If you feel like it you can adjust the "Q" internally. On the mod that I did with my old Crybaby I used a 28 turn trimpot or trimmer I installed. I'm not any kind of electronic Wizard. I just went by suggestions from a friend online from a gear forum I'm on. We both posted pictures and such. I decided to do the yellow Fasel mod because the yellow Fasel in my MC404 sounds so good. Now my old Crybaby sounds even better than it did when it was new. As I've been posting if you decide to get another wah, do yourself a favor and check out the MXR MC404. You won't be sorry.

    Thanks Spar! I used a digital multimeter set at 20 K ohm. I turned the trimmer until it was .18 ohm. After I plugged it in I got a fantastic vintage wah tone. Before it was noisey I was happy to plug it in with a dirt pedal, fuzz, distortion, Od, etc. Now on it's own it has a great tone. I like boosting it, it really makes my Marshall DSL5C come to life with a really sweet smooth tone.

    I saw them in the late 70s at UCLA. It took about 1/2 hour while they were playing to get inside because of the "drug" searches. They played for about 1 1/2 to two hours then took a break for about half hour. They came back out and played at least another two hours and we left while they were still playing because we're tired at that point. I heard they played at least a couple of hours more after we left. This was the tour were they had been playing a cover on the radio of "Good Lovin'" by The Rascals, which they also did that night as well live.

    I think that's a guitar center exclusive if I remember selling them there then!
