Wah Wokka-wokka! More than your standard, the Fulltone Clyde Deluxe Wahdelivers personality and the ubiquitous tone you are looking for.
I’ve owned some interesting Wah pedals:
- Crybaby – bought 1993, unusable as it drained batteries, no ac adapter, no led, poor sounds.
- V847 – This drained my battery as well, BUT I upgraded to both Fulltone pot and inductor, and wired to True Bypass (My favorite wah) – stolen
- Crybaby 95q – inorganic, selectable ranges, yet more or less a sweepy sound.
- ——–Desert Time——–No wah in sight that is worth it……..
Until one glorious day, a person who had little to no regard for the love of Clyde sold his Fulltone Deluxe Clyde Wah Pedal (obligatory search optimization title) to me for a song.
Features (from Fulltone site):
– 10-step Variable Input Level Control
– True-Bypass w/ bright side-viewable low current Pilot light status indicator (in otherwords, a bright LED)
– Volume to bump up the guitar helpful especially for solos.
3 selectable modes:
- Wacked – a twisted setting, very enjoyable.
- Jimi” (Clyde Standard) – A cool range of tones! My ‘Normal’ Setting.
- Shaft – Nasal heaven. If you are playing the theme to Shaft, then this is your setting. Otherwise, steer clear.
Sturdy metal, excellent hinge, clean click, dials that rest on the important positions. The circuit board of love looking all good here!
As I said before: Shaft is for Shaft. Wacked is, well, wacked. Jimi is for almost everything else!
I don’t use it for wokka-wokka stuff so much. Accentuating a solo, or slowly sweeping through the range while chording are the main purposes for this pedal on my board.
I’d be happy with the Standard version, I believe, as I rarely stray from the Jimi Setting…yet the LED and the input volume is well worth the price of admission…
