Moollon Vintage Wah



In the mid 60's, a trumpet player named "Clyde McCoy" had asked VOX for a device that could simulate the sound of a muted trumpet. So the VOX Clyde McCoy wah-wah was born in 1966, with a picture of Clyde on the bottom. Moollon Vint Age Wah is based on the early wahs like pre-Clyde McCoy in '66, Clyde McCoy in '67, and V846 in '69. The same spec of capacitors as pre-Clyde McCoy were used for wah's Q point range and inductors - one of the most important parts for the authentic sound - are all handmade one by one to the exact spec of those "small center hole" inductors in '67 Clyde McCoy wahs. All the other parts are of the spec of '68 V846 for the clear and transparent sound. CTS pots - the closest to the original ICAR - were used for smooth sweep and open sound. All these handmade and selected parts guarantee the top quality wah sound. You can also choose one of the two bypass options : Split Bypass - Sounds are compatible with each other when bypassed or turned ON. A kind of treble loss occurs when bypassed, which results in warm and mellow tone, one of the contributing factors to those gutsy sounds in 1960's. Also this character can be utilized to make a fuzz pedal sound clearer and more transparent by preceding it in the signal chain True Bypass - Almost no treble loss when bypassed. Recommended for hi-fi sounds with wide frequency range with wah as an occasional special effect.
