About This Listing

2008 Area 51 Standard Wah Wah with Fuzz Friendly Buffer and Q-Control Pot for Sweep  

Say wah? Thassright - wah baby! Big, bold, badass wah wah. That wah tone you've been searching for.... That wah wah tone that makes you think of John Shaft walking down the street....That wah tone you've heard on records but could never seem to get.

Vintage-inspired....but better! That's what you get with the Area 51 Wah.  Very clean.  Excellent condition and tone!  

Here's the deal: Not all vintage wah wahs were created equal. Some are downright magical, and some are, well.......let's just say... less than inspiring.   One of the keys to building a magical wah, is understanding those things that make it "magical" in the first place. Equally important, is how to make it repeatable. I test every single one alongside a reference wah to ensure that they are extremely consistent. That applies to the wah kits also. I plug each board into a jig for sound testing. This is something that the big companies simply cannot do.

 If the sound you are looking for is vocal, dimensional, and vintage flavored - that's what you get with the Area 51 Wah. Each one is built by hand, one at a time. It's built with the best parts, and built to last a lifetime. Here's what you get:

  • Cast aluminum chassis with adjustable tension
  • Standard 2.1mm DC Jack with filtering and regulation - compatible with pedalboard power supplies and any other "Boss" type 9VDC, center pin negative supply wallwart.
  • True Bypass wiring - Won't alter your tone in bypass mode.
  • REAL old-style switchcraft jacks - chassis mounted (not the board mounted plastic ones - no way!)
  • High quality vintage style carbon composition 100K S-taper (ICAR style) wah pot .
  • Handmade in Fremont, Michigan
  • Rugged 3PDT footswitch
  • Each pedal individually voiced and tested against a reference for consistency
  • Hand-wound Area 51 inductor
  • Top quality components, selected for tone
  • 100% hand-wired
  • Buffer (for use with fuzz)
  • Q-Control Pot to adjust Sweep
Thanks for your interest.  I suggest you check out their website to learn more.
