Fulltone

Fulltone Clyde Standard

$191.20

The "Clyde" was born from taking the best of the best of Mike Fuller's more than 25 pc. vintage Vox wah collection and analyzing every aspect... going so far as to sacrifice a few of the vintage inductors to get it right. The problem with the old (and other company's new) inductors is that they're generic industrial grade cheapos that vary as much as 30% in tolerance, some of my mediocre Vox's measured in at @360 mh when they are supposed to be 500mh. Fulltone's inductor (also available as a drop-in replacement for 90% of the wah's out there for $29.95) is a tuned core handmade unit using EXACTLY the same type wire and inductance as the 60's era Vox - except VERY consistent from one unit to the next. A tuned core inductor is much more expensive to make, but the end result is worth it. Drop this into your wah and experience the difference! The circuit board (also to be available as a drop-in replacement at $89) uses carbon composition resistors, Polypropylene WIMA .01 capacitors, and our hand-wound "Tuned Core" inductor. The only change from the original 60's Vox design is the addition of a very useable internal "Resonance Control" which is a large durable trimmer for Bass and gain adjustment. This is easily adjusted by hand without tools and with room to mark your favorite settings. This board will drop right into most wah's without hassles. The Potentiometer - the most overlooked part of the circuit - is one of the keys to a good wah wah sound and there hasn't been a proper "tapered" pot since the 60's "Icar" in any major manufacturer's wah. This is one of the reasons the 70's, 80's, and 90's wahs are so mediocre. They 've made their own called the Fullrange pot (also available as a drop-in replacement for your wah at $27.95) with a major difference.......this one has a double screened carbon composition track giving a 150,000 turn lifespan instead of the standard industry 15,000. Fulltone doesn't like the original Vox-type housings that everyone uses, and I had to design and produce one that made more sense. The traditional housings don't give enough travel and Potentiometer range, limiting your tonal sweep, and they have little compensation for tension or feel. The Fulltone "Clyde" uses custom-made 14 gauge welded steel pedal with nylon pivot points and much more travel than the conventional Vox-style ones that everyone uses. It has nylon nuts so you can adjust the tension of the treadle, and it stays that way until you change it. As with all Fulltone pedals, the "Clyde" has true bypass switching so that when it's "off" it's not coloring your sound or ruining the performance of other pedals in your signal chain. Clyde also has a standard 2.1mm negative tip AC adapter port with anti-hum filtering and protection diode.
