    As many of you I have been chasing that perfect OD pedal for years.
    Many came close.... but something was still missing.
    Being in the Electronic field all my life I decided to build one.
    I'm proud to introduce WIZ-PEDAL model: D
    Saves your tone and dynamics like no other pedal.
    Hand crafted in the USA by me.... Studio quality components for a smooth wide band OD that sounds more like a tube amp rather then a pedal.

    Now comes with an 18Volt power supply (wall wart).
    Also available on the HIFIforLESS website


    FAQs
    Q - Is it True Bypass?
    A - Yes it is True Bypass

    Q - What is your Return Policy?
    A - We have a "30 Day Satisfaction Guaranteed" policy

    Q - What setting will give me the most gain?
    A - SETUP = SC
    - PAB = ON
    - VOICE = D
    - And of course drive channel with DRIVE knob on max
    - If you are running into a tube amp you can also up the LEVEL to overdrive V1 in your amp for additional gain.

    Q - What is the difference running the WIZ-PEDAL with 18V instead of 9V?
    A -Basically with 18V you get more dynamic range and the sound will be less compressed.
    -The output level will be higher (adjust level accordingly)
    -The perceived gain will be lower.
    My personal taste is 9V for single coils, 18V for humbuckers.... but yours might be different.
    -See YouTube demo above
    I highly recommend everybody to try both 9V and 18V


    Q - I like the Mid on FLAT..... but I need more Gain (PAB is off)
    A - The EQ section is very flexible and you can get many curves
    out of it that are not immediately obvious.
    Please try the following:
    - Mid on BOOST
    - Turn the TONE way high, around 3-4 o'clock
    - Turn HI-CUT way down, around 8-9 o'clock
    This should give you more gain without "sky high" mids.
    Once there you can also try more or less the same setting with the Mid on BLAST.



    Financing: Up to 6 months with no interest
    I just learned something from a customer.
    If you have a PayPal account and you are enrolled
    in BillMeLater you can get financing for up to 6 months with no interest.

    Thanks for the bump Alan !
    Yesterday (first day after the launch) we had our first 2 orders.

    Saving is good.... but get in there before the price goes up and
    a waiting list start to form!

    I believe I got the 1st production pedal. Andrew is great to work with and the pedal arrived 3 days after I ordered it. I haven't tried all the D type pedals out there but I really like the sound of this pedal. The controls make it easy to dial in the pedal for whatever amp you might use. Its not high gain but it has a natural singing sound. So far I'm very happy with the pedal. I'll report back as I use it more in a live situation. Thanks.

    MUCH MUCH better clip... Sorry, no vid. Same recording chain actually!! Beter mic position, levels, and amp loop off to clear up the tone! Carruthers CSA into the Wiz into Strymon Timeline into Glaswerks SODII on clean into Celestion Lead 80. Sennheiser e906. Wiz set on OD and PAB. Gain on 2 oclock, Tone and Hi-Cut on 1 oclock. Level on 9 oclock and all switches on flat. Pickup selector on PAF. 18V supply.

    What I'm hearing is thickness / sustain / singing rather than crunch - which is exactly what I'm after (although I assume the crunch can be had for those who want it). I'll be checking the website tomorrow.

    Allright, I reviewed my OD pedals over the weekend and decided I could use another. I'd darned well better sound like Mr. Lerner when I get mine.

    Thank you for your order.
    I can promise..... you will not sound like Scott...
    but you will sound like a warmer and smoother TDJMB !

    Enjoy!
