Colorsound/D*A*M Fuzz-Wah

Post by TheWarmth » Mon Sep 08, 2008 5:03 pm

A few months ago I ran across Pam Grier's bra on ebay and thought Mr. Main would just love it. I won it and shipped it out to him along with my Colorsound wah hoping that he might do something with it in exchange for said bra. He did!

Per Mr. Main:

"The first control is the 3 way selector. Gives you either:

1. Wah

2. Fuzz-wah

3. Fuzz

The second control is the Fuzz Volume. This works on both the Fuzz-Wah and Fuzz settings. Really cool for dialing in the amount of Fuzz you want with the wah. The Fuzz is a modified Meathead but tuned a little more vintage and specifically for use with the wah circuit. It sounds bang on!

The gain and volume are right up there. The trimmer on the Fuzz board is the gain. Its pretty gainy at full so you have a lot of scope."

I'm really hoping this guy shows up today in the post, but if not it should be here any day. It shouldn't surprise anyone that I'm ludicrously excited about it. I am not sure whether Dave plans to do a run of fuzz-wahs or not. Perhaps he will chime in.

That looks awesome Paul and cool of the Captain to work on it. When in the fuzz or wah/fuzz mode, does the pedal act like an on/off for fuzz, so fuzz or no fuzz, rocking the pedal does not do anything to fuzz?--except in wah/fuzz mode you get wah action also? Sort of in the vein of a Meathead huh, that is going to be slamming.

Hey Gary,
The pedal did show up today, so I'm going to give it a go quickly at home tonight before I head off to the Spiritualized gig at Metro. My understanding is that in fuzz-only mode the treadle doesn't do anything after you've engaged the pedal. I'll report back more after I've spent a few hours with it. I've got rehearsal on Wednesday, so that will be the real test. Can't wait!

Nice score CW! Will clips be in order too, or is that too tall an order?

Have fun at the Spiritualized gig tonight, and thanks for turning me on to them, any more music available?
