FINALLY AFTER $2000. SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT WAH(S)!!!
You name any boutique level wah, and I've probably owned it. I received this New pedal in usual "Sweetwater" fashion (2 days) with the expert assistance from sales engineer, Ron D.
I just finished my 3rd "session" in 2 days with it.
The first time, yesterday, the wah was honestly "so, so."
The second time, last night, I began using the input level knob and the thing turned into the sweetest, most versatile wah that would no doubt, satisfy any tone hound like myself.
But this morning (DAY 2) I dialed in/clicked in the best Hendrix wah tones I've ever heard/owned! Phenomenal!! It interacts with no noise with my other true-bypass fx. My rig: '69 NOS Fender Strat, my pedal board, multiple tube Marshall stacks, plus Marshall Hand-wired 2061 with its stock cab. This pedal rules!!
I hate admitting this, but this pedal is way under priced. Its more like a $300 to $400 pedal. The MC-404 CAE Wah pedal is like four wahs into one with its switches at the sides/heel area. It's built to last. It's also very appealing to the eyes. Looks meticulously hand-built. Multiple LEDs keep you informed of your settings. Etc... I could go on... But I'm gonna go plug back into it, and create those "otherwordly" sounds... Thank you Dunlop & Sweetwater!
PS. I feel lucky to be one of the first to own one of these!!!
