Holy smokes, its a wah. What does it do? It wahs, and it is gold. What more do you need?
Most people dont know this but much of the wah-wah pedal world uses the exact same circuit layout as the original wahs, with just some component value changes. Because of this, the circuit is just *ripe* for tweaking the values to get different voicings, and thats exactly what this one is. This one features some more modern features like true bypass switching, and it has been tweaked to enlarge the sweep range a bit, and also improve the bottom end.
This fuckin’ thing!!
This was made on request by my buddy Johnny Pockets. Its a five-up multi effect unit. The goal seemed to be rooted in ridiculousness, and by god I like that. The effects in this are (from right to left):
Fuzz Face: a bog standard silicon transistor fuzz face. universally awesome fuzz.
Boosters: two (count-em) two ZVEX super hard-ons, with the trick being that one is always on, and one is switchable. I have built that booster for a few people that immediately ask for another because they want to leave one on all the time, and switch the other one in as needed.
Effects loop: An effects loop in an effect pedal? YEP. Sometimes you need to throw some other boxes into your pedal chain, and sometimes you want em in the middle. So I threw one in here after the dirt section but before the modulation section. I dont know what you’d want to put in here, necessarily, but I thought a wah went damn well.
Delay: analog delay based on the Madbean Aquaboy. RAD sounding delay which can also do some slapback reverb if you really crank down the delay time. Slapback reverb is kickass.
Tremolo: using the modified EA tremolo. a super-solid sounding trem that has the bonus of a whipass boost in it as well! If you need a THIRD boost (who doesnt, really?) then you can crank down the trem depth and use this as a straight boost.
Phase: bog-standard clone of the MXR Phase 45, my personal favorite phaser.
