I'm pretty sure he can hook you up. I have no idea which one, but tell him your guitar/pickups and which amp, and he would know best. There's a reason he specializes in wahs. That wah in the video sounded freaking gorgeous right at around the 0:55 mark! :)
Thank's !.........I will look into them !

That grey wah in the video is not a reissue it's an original 1966/67 Vox, one of the absolute originals.

You can't go wrong with an Italian Vox, or good clone.

There are many great wahs out there, and so many are tweakable. I've owned 3 Teeses at different times, and a Fulltone Clyde. All were great. I now own an RMC 10. Several months ago I emailed Geoffrey looking for his advice on the Jimi tone, and he pushed me that direction. I played the Xotic, CAE, RMC10, and the Picture last weekend. The Xotic is super tweakable, and the CAE can sound huge. the RMC10 was the clearest of the bunch when clean, but it sounds phenomenal when dirty, just listen to some of the clips online. That's where it really shines to me.

I think I will narrow it down to the RMC10 or the Oxbow , but this Chase tone sounds very good also !.....Tx for the input !

Did you guy's see the inside of the Oxbow !.......it'a a copy paste of the original with all the vintage parts.

Anyone here has the Oxbow or Ts

Hi guy's,.............what wah should I get to nail Still Raining,still dreaming?

Keep reading on the net about wah's like RMC10 and Picture wah and Vox HW and so on
and I'm going nuts trying to understand what is the one with the most vocal throaty tone
that mimics the Vintage ones like the old day's ! !
Don't want no knob with three choices of tones , just want one sweet candy !

I was offered today a Vox HW 846 for $125 and also a Fulltone deluxe Clyde Mckoy
but Samtheman a member her made an awesome clip of the RMC10 but seriously confused
on which is the good one for early stuff.

Tx !
Oxbow Studios Clyde or RMC10.

Does anyone play Area 51 wahs anymore? I bought mine 5-6 years ago and can't imagine anything else I'd want

Just found exactly what I'm looking for but don't know if the guy
is playing with an original or reissue !!...............Amazing Vintage tone !

That's an original American 1966/67 Vox, very expensive, VERY RARE, but as you can hear very very nice sounding.

I have a friend who owns two. I really hope I'm in his will when he dies, he has a Tonebender too :)

I'd also recommend Chase Tone. Email Kyle and ask him which wah would be best for what you want. I own several of his wahs and they are all voiced a little differently.
