Broke my B pedal last night while is was in the wood shed.

Are the pins that attach the pedals to the rack easy to remove?

I have a 70s MSA classic. I have two extra pedals I don’t use is it possible to remove one of those and replace the broken pedal.

Thanks

Yes, simply remove the pedal housing and pedal in position '5' from the rack as a unit and swap with pedal '2'. This is a common problem with the old 'MSA' guitars.

The hole in the pedal just above the ball joint has an allen screw in it- loosen and remove pin- the pedal can be replaced for $40.

Thank you. I get nervous hitting this thing with a hammer, it’s old.

It’s was along easier than I thought.

This is what will work. Been there, done that (albeit for a different reason). You'd never know that allen screw was there unless somebody told you! Very Happy
