would be a little stretch, but i would never not get something you like more for $50. YMMV


They are very cool effects... plus you have the option of the vintage fasel inductor option too if you want more mojo to the sound.

They're small, and really built like tanks!

Their head office is like 18 minutes from where I work.

Haven't seen one used before man. The users I know gravitate towards Chi-Wah-Wahs after going through a number of wahs... and they sorta don't take it off their boards there after.

I've not seen any in the shops I go to or online.

It's so small. How are they to use, mechanically speaking?

It is small, about the size of a Boss pedal. Which is one of its selling points.

Its nice to use but you need to change your approach towards using a wah, instead of rocking your whole foot, I find its easier to think of it like using a car's accelerator.

The overall operation of the wah is very smooth, its very easy to depress, and generally very responsive when you toe down on it. The only thing was that I found the wah a little stiff, but I recall that this is adjustable.

Although if I recall correctly, the operation is reversed. You'd toe down to get the wah emphasis towards the treble, and toe up to get the wah towards the bass end. I could have recalled wrongly though.

The only downside of the design is that you can't **** your wah like Satch does on some songs, but then, there's a pedal specifically for that right?

I haven't heard of long wait times or queues when buying direct from the manufacturers. Similarly, from what I recall there was a period a few years back where stocks were low because of a shortage of one component part.

Beyond that, from what I heard from friends, its always in stock.

You have to bust out a soldering iron and swap out some components, but there's no better way to get a unique wah sound. This website is a good starting point and explains very simply how each component change affects the overall sound.

But if that's too much for you, the two biggest thins you can change if the vocal resistor and the inductor. The stock GCB95 has that ugly black inductor, you're going to want to swap that out for a Fasel or Whipple inductor. Do a little bit of research into what wah sounds you like, then chek out what wah they were using, and it should steer you in the right direction. My general rule is fasel inductors for crybaby tones, whipple for vox tones.

The vocal resistor swap will make your wah deeper, less of a "wah" and more of a "woh". The stock resistor is rated at 33k, the more you raise it, the more pronounced the sweep will be.
