Big John Obama Wah


Big John

2 Separate effects in one box (Fixed Wah-Filter & Distortion)

First of all: The Obamawah is not meant to be political!!!

The Obamawah will give you a sweet distortion and an additional wah-filter control. The distortion has a volume knob and a gain knob but the gain actually works as a voltage controller usable for strange textures (only for the distortion effect). The wah effect is added to have a sort of an alternative tone control or for filter purposes. I read on many forums that guitar players are in search of a “fixed” wah, so here it is.

Both effects can be used seperately.

The Big John Obama Wah is for all you guitarists and bassist out there that have been begging for a fixed wah pedal. Featuring voltage controlled gain distortion and a separate sweepable filter, the Big John Obama Wah brings a new ball game to effects pedals. Perfect for bass, guitar, or synth, the Big John Obama Wah has a filter that can be used on its own or in conjunction with the distortion. The distortion Gain control actually changes the voltage in the gain circuit to produce different levels of gain, but also different textures. The Big John Obama Wah is a truly unique effect built point-to-point by hand in Belgium.

The Big John Obama Wah is wacky. The distortion is pure transistor overload from mild and fuzzy to bright and crunchy. Different settings of the gain control yield different textures as well as gain levels and the filter is perfect for obtaining the cocked wah tone (think In My Head by Queens of the Stone Age). The filter has an adjustable sweep so you can filter any frequency you like. The Big John Obama Wah is a very usable tool for guitar or bass and even works great with an analog synth.

Dimensions: 130x95x57mm
