So I’ve scoured the internet and cannot find an answer.

I recently changed both the potentiometer and string on my VPJR passive pedal using Ernie Ball parts. I changed the pot because it was getting scratchy. I changed the string because I was there.

After doing so, the pedal is not scratchy and works as it should until you get to complete “heel down” and then it comes back to full control. The string and pot are adjusted properly and I soldered the pot correctly.

Any ideas?
