About This Listing

This is for a pre-order of a SOD inductor Vintage Spec Mini Wah Drop in Kit at a cheap price!!! These drop directly into the Dunlop mini wah housing with a very small amount of work. Below is the steps that need to be taken to modify your existing mini to fit the new Wilson board.

  • Remove the nut on the exterior of the foot switch under the toe of the pedal.
  • Remove the nuts in the input and output jacks.
  • Remove the silver Phillips screw from the board inside the enclosure.
  • Unplug the potentiometer from the board.
  • With the pedal in the toe up position remove the existing circuit board and switch.
  • Referring to the pictures in this posting, file down or drill out the small switch retainer where the foot switch is mounted.
  • Remove the existing felt pad and install the new one included in the kit.
  • Insert the new board with the pedal in the toe up position.
  • Mount the board with the 2 new jack nuts first, then insert the
    Phillips screw you removed from the old board. (I often put a piece of electric tape or duct tape over the screw under the board just in case it should come in contact with the board.
  • The new foot switch should be mounted horizontally (hence the reason for filing the retaining clip) to avoid contact with the potentiometer. Typically the inner nut should be all the way down and the washers can be mounted on the exterior with the external nut.
  • Plug the potentiometer into the new board socket.
  • Plug pedal in and adjust the internal trimmers to your liking.
  • Mount bottom plate.
  • Peel off the Cry Baby nameplate. Using some contact cement apply your new Wilson Effects badge and allow it to dry.
  • Happy jamming!!!
  • This board also negates the battery option of the pedal. A center negative 9v DC power supply is required.
Here's a little bit about the Wilson Mini wah from the web site:

Say Hello to the world's first fully tunable, fuzz friendly, vintage
spec (optional) mini wah pedal. Small & compact the Mini
Vintage Wah will save you precious real estate on your pedal
board without sacrificing tone. Full of vintage, modern and very
expressive tones this little beast is sure to please you wah wah
palette. Make sure you check this thing out on the Dirty
channel of an amp as this little thing wails like a banshee.  
Let's check out some of the features;

True Bypass
Fuzz friendly output buffer with volume control.
Internal Sweep range trimmer.
External mid-range control.
External resonance or growl control.
2.1mm center negative power jack.
1 year warranty on parts and labor (excludes potentiometer &
External controls can be mounted internally as here at Wilson
Effects we are all about options.

As mentioned above the pedal is designed with an output
buffer integrated into the circuit. This not only allows the pedal
to deal with the low input impedance of most fuzz & overdrive
pedals but it also allows you to boost or cut the output of the
pedal via the internal volume trimmer. This comes in very
handy when adjusting the resonance control as this will boost
or cut the gain of the pedal allowing you to adjust it specifically
to your needs.
The internal sweep trimmer is designed to take the place of the
resistor across the inductor of the wah circuit. What this does
is dial in the sweep range of the pedal. The greater the
resistance the greater the amount of sweep you are able to
attain. Dialing this back to zero will result in a loss of wah effect
in the pedal.
The mid-range control controls the amount of mids within the
wah circuit. Dialing this control towards the heal will thin out
the sound and dialing it towards the front will thicken it up. This
comes set to a stock value of 1.5K which is the norm for most
classic wah circuits.
The resonance control otherwise known as the growl control
adjusts the frequency response or resonance of the pedal.
Dialing this towards the hell of the pedal will result in a darker
throatier sound. Dialing this control towards the front of the
pedal will result in a thinner brighter wah sound.
The pedal has no internal battery option due to the space
inside of the enclosure. You can use an industry standard
2.1mm center negative power supply to run the pedal. The
minimum milliamp recommendation is 100ma.
