New Old Stock DeArmond Thunderbolt 5 Octive Wah Wah Pedal Model No. 1850

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

This is a DeArmond Thunderbolt Model 1850 wah. Found at a liquidation sale of an great old music store (Fiore's Music) here in Oakland, CA.

Crazy, but this is new old stock. Was just sitting in behind the counter waiting for someone to come and buy it since 1977. Includes the original box, manual and warranty card. We removed the original battery that it shipped with but will include it for nostalgia's sake. The box shows a little shop wear from sitting around so long. Please see the pictures for the condition of the items mentioned.

The Thunderbolt is really a rather odd duck. It's not a wah in the traditional sense. The Thunderbolt wah employs ICs instead of using an inductor, and it sounds more like a swept phaser than an actual wah. It's kind of a thin, reedy sound, but it's pretty cool. We could see this as part of someone's studio arsenal.

Due to the age of this item we are selling as-is. The Thunderbold was tested and working at the time of this listing.

This is your chance to get a pretty rare and unique pedal. We have not seen a new old stock one for sale, ever.
