Hey Ash,

Thanks for your page, it's awesome!
I have a problem with my Cry Baby From Hell picking up radio signals, its driving me crazy I don't know what to do, I saw your fix on a Vox pedal soldering capacitors across the transistors but i don't know how to proceed in my case.

Thanks and i hope you can help me

see this:

It shows putting a small value cap across the input and ground lugs of your input jack. I don't recall what cap value but probably .001 (.0001?) would work.

Hey, thanks for the great ideas about modding Zoom pedals! One question: Do you know if the various internals are compatible between the Zoom G3 and G3X?

For example, if I bought a broken G3X, could I repair it with parts from a G3? (except for the expression pedal pot, of course... since it's not there on the G3)

Thanks!
K

ashbass reply:
If you're asking if you could re-house a G3 in a G3X chassis then yes. Is that opposite of how you are saying it? If you have a working G3 though, why fix the broken G3X when you won't get the expression pedal anyway?

Hello Ash,
it's Goran again :). I decided (finally) to do for my G3v2 just one pedal with four buttons: PATCH DOWN, PATCH UP, RHYTHM and TAP TEMPO. For TAP you told me to use Momentary NC switch. But what about the rest of three buttons. On your Tap Tempo Mod page you wrote just momentary switch. But what kind of (on-on, on-off, NC ...)? Same on Patch Select Mod page, I can see that you use 3PDT switches. Is it possible to use something else, some more softer switches?
Also I plan to use RJ45 connectors. Can all switches share the same ground wire or is it maybe better to use two stereo 3,5mm jacks, one for patch and one for tap & rhythm.
I hope I'm clear enough so you can understand me.
Thanks again.

ashbass reply:
All other switches can be Momentary Normally Open (NO) switches and can thus be soft. One common wire is used for all four switches, so you need 5 conductor wiring.

Wow your site was a blast from the past. I had a 1987 Blue Burst 540r that I played the heck out of on stage and sold in the mid 90's as I needed food at the time. Still wish I'd kept that guitar as it was a work of art. Thanks for posting pictures so those of us that let one slip away can occasionally look and remember.

Thank you for your reply.
I'll try to do so with always-on momentary switch. Is it ON-ON switch (this is something I usually see) or something else. I'm sorry but I'm not very good in electronics so I have to ask.
Thanks again.

ashbass reply:
You need a "Momentary Normally Closed (NC)" switch. The on-on you mention is a latching switch and won't do for your Tap function needs.

Hello Ash,

First I would like to thank you for this great site and all the effort you do to make those mods clear enough for those of us who are not good in electronics.
I have G3 v2 and would like to build a pedal with just tap tempo and patch mod. What do you think about RJ45 connector, one on G3 and one on pedal, connecting with UTP cable. Would it be good enough?
Thanks in advance!

Goran

ashbass reply:
You're cabling should work. But your goal may not. As I recall you have to hold down the tap button on the G3 in order for the Patch buttons to work as Patch buttons. If you use an always-on momentary switch for Tap Tempo you should work out. I mention this on the mod page.

Yes , I am pretty sure. It has a built in exp.pedal. When i connect FP02 it mutes the sound or nothing happens. Thank you for the quick responnce.

Dear Ash, what should i do to use external pedal FP02(black) as a volume pedal with my G3X unit? I plug it in "control in" but nothing happens.What do i do wrong?

ashbass reply:
There must be something wrong with your G3X. The G3X has a pedal built in already for using with effects and your FP02 will only serve as an output volume control when inserted into the control in jack. It should work. Are you sure you have a G3X and not a G3? A G3 will require extra steps to get your pedal to work as a volume pedal.

Dear Ash.
Do you know of anyway to disable the looper from the Zoom G5?

When switch the first effect on and off, it seems to easy to accidentally turn on the looper.
I use an external looper anyway for creating my loops.

ashbass reply:
Sorry no. I don't think that that is possible.
