Regarding broken or non-functioning pedals in need of repairs: Due to the proprietary nature of these devices, schematics and parts are often unavailable for most effect units. It is typically recommended to contact the manufacturer with any pedal repair needs. However, select effect pedal repairs for faulty or malfunctioning components such as switches, jacks, control pots, battery terminals, etc. may be available on a case by case basis.
