We created the world's first Wah-Wah pedal while designing a device using a variable version of the 'VOX MRB' (mid-range boost) circuit made famous in our amps. That pedal imitated the sound of a trumpet being muted and we recruited Clyde McCoy, a famous trumpet player of the day who was best known for his expressive use of the trumpet mute, as an endorser of the pedal, hence the name: VOX Clyde McCoy Wah-Wah Pedal. The original 1960s VOX Clyde McCoy Wah-Wah pedal became one of the most sought after vintage effects by collectors worldwide. Now we are re-issuing this legendary effect with some modern enhancements.
The Clyde McCoy Wah-Wah pedal includes details like a custom-tuned inductor made by the original manufacturer and a true bypass switch. Plus, it has some new enhancements like an AC adapter jack and a newly designed, custom taper poten-tiometer. The McCoy Wah-Wah sports a modified but classic look, with a gray hammertone finish on the lower half and a sketch of Clyde McCoy on the bottom, just like on the original.
