    Hey gang. I've recently slimmed down my pedals considerably & am pretty much only using a Jim Dunlop Wah-Wah pedal now for gigs. I'm no maniac, but I am quite physical when i play & the cable gets a lot of movement. The issue I'm having is the cable keeps pulling out of the Wah-Wah, leaving me in silence till I kick it back in.
    Ive tried different cables, longer cables etc... But it still happens at least once every show.
    So Im thinking some kind of Neutrik lock would work. But as the pedal is steel cased, that's not easy to do. And the jack socket is close cased, so I cant tighten the internal connectors for a better grip.
    Any ideas would be great. Cheers.

    Maybe try a right angle cable and tape it to the side of the pedal.
