The 'basic' wah, for a cleaner build


tonepad_wahwahbasic.pdf 73.3 KB-- Llora Nena Wah, Rev.1.May.5.2007

Wah Wah US$ 11.00

Super clean wah thanks to the layout. The only option included is variable 'Q' (explained in the pdf), but there's plenty of room for 'flying lead' mods.

So build a classic sounding wah and maybe even replace the PCB in an old wah. The board matches the mounting holes in standard wah enclosures.

For new builds, rocker pedal enclosures can be found at several places online at
