Wow that's a great sounding demo Pete, really demonstrates well in condition what that Wah can do; and it actually sounds like a great wah, I like the voicing I'm hearing too. It actually made me re-think of re-incorporating a wah in my rig, haven't had one for what... 8 years may be?

It's a unique enough wah, with it's deep voice, that if you have a standard sort of "higher voiced" wah, you could justify getting this for it's deep, throaty thing.

Pete, from your in hand experience how would you describe the difference between this "deep throaty" thing this wah has, and what you would get from switching the sweep of a regular crybaby/Vox wah towards the bass end of the pot course?
I used to fine-tune my old wah by playing with the pot course range depending on the tone I was looking for and this could change quite a lot how the wah was reacting with the rig.

Sorry I don't quite understand- you mean you'd change the value of the pot or something?

Sorry Pete if I was not clear; by "ajusting the pot course range" I was not talking about changing the pot, but about turning it after having disconnected the mechanical drive mechanism linked to the pedal top. That way you can ajust the range of the pot you're using as most of the time the wah pedal does not use the entire mechanical range of the pot, meaning you can ajust the wah tonal response / range more towards the bass or treble frequencies.

Hope that's clearer, i'd happily do a small video about it but I don't have a wah anymore :) If not let me know I can try a pictured description of the tweak.
