535Q LED mod?

I did a search, but it didnt turn anything up. I bought a Dunlop 535Q yesterday and love it....except I miss the LED indicator that my Boss V-wah had. Is there a way to mod this pedal so that it has an LED in the heel and in the toe positions of the casing?

Thanks in advance!

There is probably a way of doing this, but you'd probably need to drill holes into the wah shell.

Keeley

Robert Keeley has a page for Wah mods, he can add an LED for $20. There's also a lot of other great mods on the page, you could send it in to get several done at once.

All i want is a quick mod to put in 2 LEDs. I'm perfectly happy with the wah as-is....I just need some sort of indication as to whether it is on or off.

You could probably do it quite easily, but using one LED would be easier than two.

I would imagine you could change the footswitch to a DPDT, and wire an LED to it from there.
I'm sure someone will be able to elaborate furthur, I'm pretty new to the pedal modding scene.

no, a 535q is already a DPDT he needs to change it to a 3PDT for adding one LED
and Keeley won't do it for $20, it says specifically on there that there's a $70 minimum

Sorry, I'm not familiar with the 535Q, I have an original crybaby.

About Keeley, that's why I said 'There's also a lot of other great mods on the page, you could send it in to get several done at once.' The LED mod itself only costs $20.

Now I could be wrong, so I wouldn't act on this without confirmation from someone else, but I would imagine you could wire it like this:

The first two columns are the ones already being used, the new ones from changing to a 3PDT are the right column.

instead of blowing around 10 bucks on a brand new 3pdt and changing the feel of your wah (switch height is different than a dpdt), you could keep the dpdt, do a bit of rewiring, and learn something in the process by implementing the millenium bypass at geofex.com.

berarduur is on a distinguished road
+1 on the millenium bypass. It is a bit harder to understand and needs more skill, but it works with a cheap DPDT switch instead of the expensive 3PDT's.

I recommend the Millenium C bypass version (with the cheap CMOS chip) because it has the least artefacts in it's design.

On this note, I'm planning to True Bypass my crybaby in a few weeks, am I able to just change the switch to a DPDT, and just rewire it like that?
Or do I have to make modifications elsewhere as well?

(I don't think it has a buffer, am pretty sure It was made before Dunlop implented the buffers into their crybabys)

true bypassing a wah

that should tell you all you need to know if it is a GCB-95. if you plan to true bypass it i think you will need to do the volume boost as well
