Hi guys

There's a Carlsbro wah on my classifieds for about 38 USD. I heard they were made by Colorsound back in the day. Looking through some HC reviews (there are only 2), they seem to be really bad. Any opinions here?

thanks

dude the guys who write those reviews are usually morons. and people tend to write reviews when they have something negative to say, but never post anything when theyre satisfied. thats just plain understood in the customer service world - a happy person tells a friend, an unhappy person tells 10 friends.

one of those people was even like "without an LED, you cant even tell when the pedals on!" ... if you cant tell whether a wah is on, you're a dumbass. they almost never have LED's.

i'd grab it dude. at the very least go check it out to see what condition its in, how it sounds, etc.

Alright I'll take a look

Kind of only wanted it because it was vintage anyway.

look - it's 38 bucks. if its in not so great condition or sounds bad, i guarantee you could haggle it down to 20-25. if it doesnt, you probably still could haggle him to that.

at the very least id buy it and rehouse crybaby/vox/teese guts into it. it'd be badass

its 38 bucks
get it and i'll paypal you the money to send it over to me if you really hate it (assuming it works )
you should never ever decide on or against a purchase from harmony central reviews or any user submitted reviews like that
i only ever read them to hear generally what people said about the pedal and what sort of sounds they got etc, because that's interesting

BTW are you sure it's an old colorsound made one? i think carlsbro reissued some pedals since then
do you have any pics of it?


I don't put all my faith in reviews either. That's why I came here.

I'm waiting for a reply. I'll keep you updated!

Status: Still waiting on the reply. The guy sent me pics of his RG350 he had for sale instead of the wah I wanted <.<

I found some other rare toy that piqued my interest: A 1980s (?) Peavey DEP-16 Stereo effects processor for about 58 USD. I have never heard of it, but apparently it's another modulation multi-FX in a single pedal. According to noiseguide, the MSRP back in the day was US$279.95. How rare is it?

Gotta love Hong Kong classifieds lol.

Got the guy to send pics. It's a Carlsbro AC1160 model wah. It looks kind of new, so I'm pretty bummed out right now. It definitely doesn't look too valuable anymore.

It goes for 40 GBP :
