    Proud to introduce:

    WIZ-PEDAL model: A

    [​IMG]


    More info and ordering at:
    www.wiz-pedal.com

    Mr Paco Casanovas: --------- Stratocaster !


    MarinBlues on the model: A






    Mr Ric Latina: (Nashville session player)




    Extreme Dynamic test​


    Mr: Nick Caiano


    Just a little teaser from Mr: Nick Caiano


    A little AC/DC from Gary Jarvis (Teleman76)




    About the model: A

    Model A is more of a chameleon, it's capable of many different tones.
    It's voiced differently then the D pedals but it can do D style tones too.

    The main goal was to build a pedal that will work great in many different
    situations with all kind of guitars and all kind of amps.

    I also wanted to make sure the Strat player with the weakest pickups
    will have as much gain as he wants.
    About 10% of customers who purchased the D pedals reported they need more gain, most of them were Strat players

    So all you Strat players that wished to have more gain on the D
    give model: A a try!

    And all of you who wanted to play power cords on the D pedals :eeks
    and wished there was a way to control the loose low end
    give model: A a try!
    With the LOWS control you can now tighten things up.
    You can turn it almost into a hi boost pedal if you wish.

    Here is what you should know about model A.
    - LOWS control is pre distortion, it will also effect the character of the pedal.
    I did not call them BASS and TREBLE on purpose, think of them as CONTOURS.
    It's normal to have them full up, full down or anything else in between.

    - About the CHANNEL switch next to the power jack:
    - It gives you more pre-gain, useful for Strat players to reach full saturation,
    At high settings it's pretty useless for humbuckers with possible nasty feedback but if you use it with humbuckers and lower the GAIN (let's say to noon) , it's a nice alternative, it will sound less warm and more aggressive then the low channel.

    More info and clips coming soon....​

    Ric Latina: (Nashville session player)

    I keep getting gear info questions about this clip so here it is:
    Rick is using a:
    - 73 fender deluxe amp
    - Greenhouse delay

    As far as mic on the cab, it sounds to me there isn't one.
    I think it's just the camcorder mic picking up whatever is going on in the room.
    I am not sure about the mic but I will find out soon and post it.

    Confirmed, the whole thing is recorder with an iphone.
    Sound is from the iphone built in mic.

    Some FAQ's I'm getting lately:

    Q: Is it a unique design? Is it just a variation of TubeScreamer?
    A: Yes it's a unique design, it sounds nothing like a TubeScreamer or any other pedal out there.
    For those of you that are familiar with the D pedals, think of it as a D pedal with much more gain and slightly different voicing.
    Model: A has more "dirt" it's not as "hifi" as the D models.
    Yet it's dynamic and "amp like"... just as much as the D pedals.

    Does this sound like a TubeScreamer to you?

    I don't want to give the impression that this pedal is for Strat players only
    but it definitively goes very well with Strats.
