"Kirk Hammett mod" I did to my wah

Hahaha, I just received some inductors from Joe Gagan (thanks buddy!) and made some mods in the wah, just for fun, hehe.

I assumed he was referring to taping his shoe to the wah so he has to use it on EVERY FREAKING SOLO.

Not that I have an opinion about that.   ;D

Hahahaha, the turd-looking-inductor is made by our forum mate Joe Gagan, and actually looks quite nice! I was really refering to the crazy amounts of wah in Kirk's playing, hence the flip-flop on the top of it, hehe

I'm more interested in the upside down tube screamer! I hear the upside down ones make you sound like Stevie Ray Vaughan!  :D

Hahaha, that's ok! I really like Metallica, but sometimes Kirk's use of wah is just annoying!

bahahaha, excelent! Sounds just like that Eric Johnson tone nonsense. Actually, the TS9 was being moded for true bypass, more output, more gain, fat mod and 3 differente diode clippings.

Even after all the previous posts, I still am going to admit that Kirk (and Slash!) was the reason I bought a Crybaby in the first place, 18 years ago. Still going strong BTW!
