Author Topic: Newbie - help repairing Old Ibanez Switch - CP-835 Compressor II Pedal  (Read 3877 times)


Hello.  I'm a newbie so sorry for any "dumb" quesitons.  I've got a 1979 Ibanez Compressor II CP-835 pedal.  The pedal works but the switch is bad...same switch as the old TS-808 pedal.  I don't know that I can find any replacement parts so I'm thinking of just putting a "regular" on/off stomp switch in there.  I'm not totally confident on how to solder it up.  I think I can figure it out but wanted any advice or help I could find.  I don't care about making it true bypass, etc. just want to be able to turn it on and off without unplugging it.  Here's a link to what the pedal looks like:

Any help is much appreciated!!!
