Thinking of modding my Crybaby...


Recommended Posts

My Crybaby (Original) doesn't sound too bad to my ears, but it's lacking something. I'm thinking of upgrading the pot to something that can give me a nice, clear, throaty sound without sucking up half my tone. Also, how hard do you think a true bypass mod would be for someone my level? By my level I mean that I'm in the level 1 electronics class at the Vo-tech building in my school, I can solder, and have access to resistors, caps, etc.


Can anyone suggest a good pot?

I put a Hot Potz (100K) in my Crybaby. I haven't compared it to any other After Market Pot but I like it better than it was. It had gotten so scratchy I couldn't hear it's original voice. With the Hot Potz it's quiter than it ever was and has a very Original sounding voice, with a little more of something.



Here's a link to a Webshots Album of the repair.
