    Hey there! Welcome to my first post in this forum. If I'm doing something wrong here or use inappropriate language (I'm just a German guy...), let me know.

    I want to show you my version of a versatile and easy to use wah controller specially made for the MFC. It is made of an old crybaby (which I did not like anyway), a single-button channel-selector stompbox, some minor electronic parts (switches, LEDs...), some mechanical parts (springs,nails...) and a plexi-glass plate so put everything together.

    What you get:
    - Spring-loaded Wah Controller (Auto-Engage)
    - One switch to control X/Y wah status, so you get 2 different wahs
    - Another Switch, I use it to engage a Graphic EQ after the wah block.
    - One switch is next to the wah, one is in the wah, where the activating switch was
    - LEDs, that indicate switching status
    - automatic on/off-switching when pressing the lever (settings made in the AFX)
    - only two jacks: one for switching (stereo-jack, two functions), one for the continuous controller


    If you want to copy my build I am happy to send you instructions and the settings for the Axe FX.
    If you've built something else in this territory, please add it so I can learn from your approaches.

    Feel free to comment and make suggestions.

    EDIT: The battery is only there to power the LEDs and it lasts very long. The rest is just controlling, no audio involved.
