Fulltone - Amazing sound and quality!

The Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah is modeled after the Clyde McCoy "signature" wah, the same wah rumored to be Jimi's favorite. The inductor is a tuned-core hand-made unit using exactly the same type wire and inductance as the '60s era Vox. The Clyde Standard Wah boasts an add-on to the original Vox design with the inclusion of internal "Resonance Control" large durable trimmer for bass and gain adjustment that is easily adjustable without tools and with room to mark your favorite settings. Fulltone reinvents a classic with the Clyde Standard Wah.

Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah at a Glance:
  • Long-lasting pots
  • Who uses Fulltone?

Long-lasting pots
Fulltone's custom-made brass-shaft pots are among the strongest and smoothest feeling pots available. These amazing pots are mounted to the interior PCB board via a proprietary "thru-PCB" method rather than having the pot be secured by the pot terminals, drastically reducing pot-related failure. This method keeps Fulltone pedals up and running for the duration of your playing days. Plus, this eliminates the need for a bunch of jumper wires, keeping your tone as pure as humanly possible.

Who uses Fulltone?
The list of Fulltone fans reads like a who's who of guitar heroes. Both Ron Wood and Keith Richards have Fulltone gear in their touring rigs, as does Nigel Tufnel from the legendary British metal band Spinal Tap, and Boston bad-boys Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton. Punk/rockabilly mainstay Reverend Horton Heat is a Fulltone convert. Other notable Fulltone users include Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, Jack Bruce of Cream, perennial alt rocker Lou Reed, and Tom Petty along with Heartbreaker Mike Campbell.

Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Features:
  • Internal Resonance Control for bass and gain adjustment
  • Tuned-core hand-made inductor with a custom MuMetal cover which virtually eliminates all hum
  • Replication of Clyde McCoy "signature" wah of the '60s

Why buy Fulltone?
Fulltone was founded in 1991 by session guitarist, composer, performer, and electronic tinkerer Michael Fuller. His pedals were born out of love for music and tone, as well as the frustration at the inconsistencies and the often fragile nature of vintage pedals. Fulltone pedals are 100% handmade in Southern California using the finest components, including custom-made 22-gauge copper wire with no tin coating, Fulltone-designed 3PDT switches, and custom-made brass shaft pots, mounted using Fulltone's proprietary "thru-PCB" method. The end result: Fulltone pedals are built to last and sound amazing.

Fulltone Clyde Wah

Fulltone never fails! You know this, because you are here reading this review... 2 guitarists in our band, each uses a Fulltone Clyde. Super smooth on/off clicking. Excellent and authentic tonal quality. No shrill high frequencies like the other overseas brands...

Best wah wah ever made

This pedal is one of the best peices of gear I've ever bought. If you use a wah, you need to use this wah. You could spend a small fortune on the real "McCoy" but why would you when this tops an original in quality of build, range of sweep, and overall versatility. The internal control is amazing. The buffer control is a godsend. The adjustable treadle is brilliant. Bottom line... This is the best wah on the market. I would say best ever (except for maybe the deluxe Clyde model). You will not be disappointed. This is the one folks. Well worth the extra cash.

The Awesome Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah

The Fulltone Wah is wildly beyond my expectations. I used it on a gig 2 days after receiving it and was amazed by how much better it sounded in the full band mix then the Crybaby Classic or Vox I had been using. So much more controllable and musical sounding. I run straight into a little preamp so I didn't use the buffer but I can see times I might to either boost or even cut output when the wah kicks on. I also really appreciate the lock-nut fulcrum which allows me to adjust tension so the pedal either stays where I put it or falls to full treble. Without any tinkering full treble is very usable and pleasing compared to other wahs. With this thing my Earl Hooker is more Earl Hooker, Hendrix is more Hendrix, Skip Pitts more Skip Pitts etc...

Fulltone Clyde Std

Years ago, I had a Clyde Deluxe that traveled the south of the US with me for 2 years. It was super durable, sounded excellent, and easily the quietest wah I ever used, but I only used the standard setting. Buying this one was a no brainer. Still super quiet, and the bass trim and output controls allow me to tailor the sound to whatever amp I'm using. This is super important to me. I get the Brian Robertson/Michael Schenker sounds with every amp I own. Nice.

Awesome Wah

I have had many wah pedals over the years. My Ideal wah tones are the usual ones....Electric Lady Land era Hendrix, Cream, Trower, Beck, Page. This pedal gets very close to those vintage tones with a great sweep range, vocal midrange and fast attack when pushing the pedal fast. It is a bit modern sounding though. My vintage Thomas Organ Crybaby still sounds much bigger, louder and deeper but the Fulltone Clyde wah is very consistent. The sweep range on this wah is wide with a lot of highs on tap. The only other newer wah pedal I have heard that sounds better (more vintage) is the Teese RMC Picture wah. This wah pedal should please most wah junkies and is built very well. The buffer is awesome and lets you use vintage fuzzes with ease. If it's good enough for Robin Trower...well its good enough for most I guess. Great wah!
