Funky problem with my wah pedal.

Here's the order my effects are run in. Guitar, Hendrix Wah, Voodoo Labs Superfuzz, VL Sparkle Drive, VL Microvibe, Korg Toneworks processor for chorus, delay, and modulation effects. When I use the wah and superfuzz in that order the wah makes a funky tone if I'm not playing anything guitar volume up or down. Kinda like a harmonic of some sort. It only makes it from about midway to the heel position (lower half). Now I reversed the wah and superfuzz in order but the tone is way different. I know the Dunlop wah's are not true bypass pedals but does anyone have a clue what the problem is. I can probably live with the tone with the wah in between the Sparkle and Fuzz but I'd really like the wah in front of the overdrive boxes. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I've run into this as well. I think it is just feedback and the only thing that has seemed to help with me is lowering the gain on the fuzz.

also, if you look it up, you can easily modify the wah pedal so that it has true bypass

That is true. It is an easy and worthwhile mod.

Thanks for the advice but I changed the routing running the wah between the fuzz and the guitar took a little knob tweaking but I found a great tone. I was planning on having my wah modded soon for true bypass. Thanks again

Glad it worked out.
