I love free FX!

Got these vintage De Armond pedals for free as they were going to get pitched otherwise as part of the non functioning crap pile. A couple hours or so of work/cleaning/lubing and they are ready to rock again.

Both were very dirty and got a good clean. The phase was some rewiring and loose jack and the unbuffered volume pedal the pot was froze up so I replaced that and all was good. Im pretty stoked anyhow. Fun weekend project [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

I love taking broken things apart,
'cause it's sooo cool when you put it back together
and it works!

I did this once to an old Atari 2600 - yanno the old model with the fake wood and it did not turn out so well [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif] I still have it though ... just waiting for the box to encompass a tone bending project when I get the time ... whenever that will be [smilie=fun_84.gif]
