Microvibe switch seems to have gone bad

Post by josh__ » Mon Aug 19, 2019 6:10 am

hi,

The switch on my microvibe seems to have gone bad, I have had it a few years but have barely used it as I bought it at the end of a tour then circumstances changed so only used it a handful of time in the studio.

Basically sometimes it just cuts out completely or is very quiet until you wiggle the switch a bit then it seems to work for a while.

I was hoping to use it again as I am getting back into live work. Where could i get a switch? (UK)

thanks

Josh

A good first start would likely be our UK Distributor, Westside Distribution, or feel free to contact us directly via info@voodoolab.com. One way or another we will get this sorted out!

I hope that helps!

I clicked through to a company called westside distribution,they seem to distribute a lot of brands. I clicked around the site for a while, it seems you can only really find a link to a local (50 miles away) shop that sell Voodoo Labs gear. The shop i bought it from closed down a while back so I don't think I will have any joy

I should have clarified that it would be best to contact Westside Distribution via their phone# and tell them exactly what is happening. ;)

okee dokee,

thanks John

The item it well out of warranty, so i am not expecting anything really, maybe a switch or some advice etc, it's just a little frustrating as its has basically not been used more than a handful of times since new. I did read on a few forums there may have been an issue with switches at some point.

cheers

Westside has been the distributor for at least "a few" years... but maybe you are saying you've had the pedal for over 5 years? (Warranty is 5 years) Anyway, if they can't help you, or you would just rather let us take care of it, then please contact us directly. I was only trying to make this easy for you ;)
