There are hundreds of wah pedals available today, but BBE's Ben Wah is one of the most highly-regarded for offering some of the sweetest, most musical and vocal-like wah tones we've ever heard. It's undoubtedly one of the coolest-looking wah pedals we've seen too, with its chrome rocker plate and Chinese lettering logo giving it plenty of character to stand out on your pedalboard!
Based on a 1967 Class A circuit design that featured the unique and desirable 'Halo' inductor, BBE has re-engineered this component and potentiometer to ensure that its Ben Wah pedal recreates the expressive tones made famous by the likes of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Also sporting a 'Harmony' control, this thoughtful addition allows you to adjust the Q/peak response for attaining anything from a low and throaty wah sound to a searing, mix-piercing scream!
