    Not long ago, I was selling a bunch of gear as a favor to a ex girlfriend of mine. She had married, and her husband, who was a gear head, passed away. She contacted me and I told her I would help.

    Anyways, fast forward to now. I sold most of the gear and as payment, I kept a cool little uke. Also, there was a bunch of pedals and I kept one that was not working properly.

    If the cost is reasonable, I would like to get it fixed.

    It's a MXR EVH flanger. It works, but not correctly. Pretty sure the EVH button might have something to do with it.

    Is it even feasible to get this fixed or would I be better off just pitching it in the garbage? Seems like a really well made pedal to me.

    Anyone?

    I bet BuGG could fix it.

    I'll have to call or email. I spent 20 minutes filling out their form and posting clips and the stupid thing does nothing after that. What a waste of time.

    If you're not in a hurry, Joe at LMP is another pedal guru who might be able to help you.

    Fixing pedals is always a dicey proposition, cost-wise. My amp tech is great at it, but his bench rate is 60 bucks an hour - so of it's not a quick diagnosis and relatively easy fix, it's often not worth it.
