AMT Electronics WH-1 Japanese Girl



AMT Electronics

The Japanese Girl Wah is an optical version of the classic "WAH-WAH" effect, but with many added improvements. Optical control increases the product  life of the effect by eliminating the frequent strain and wear on the control potentiometer. The optical sensor also provides for a smoother transition in frequency changes, and eliminates the dreaded "scratchy" potentiometer sound.

On the left side of the pedal, is a 3-way toggle switch, offering three different Wah frequency sweeps that the user can choose from. Each setting will change the vocal range of the Wah, it's like having three different Wah pedals in one!

Small compact size, no more losing valuable pedal board space.

Japenese Girl wants to be your next Wah pedal.
