Real McCoy Custom RMC 3
See above. Wah trs good quality, sturdy construction seems particulirement. The quality is really to go and breathe the know-how all floors.


Okay, the trim-pots are the pedals of the indoor (must be opened for rgler) but it's the same one dtail ct tr s many possibilities. The rglages are sensitive trs. Some are on offer in the booklet that came with the pedals, but you can express a whole bunch of other combinations just as convincing. I do not know with a wah wah characters as versatile. At the same time it has a much grain it, regardless of the type of texture she can keep her personality every time. It's really high-end.


In total dsaccord with the view Previous (but seems to be falling on onlylag a dfectueux MODEL). The sound quality and expressiveness are remarkable. The whole spectrum of frquences is exploitable (APRS can rgler the frquences privilgier one wishes). I dj on several jou wah (morley, dunlop, vox, budda) and I find it the quality of Previous runit without some default. For example, it can have the softness of the vox but without eating the gain (including lead), it can have the agressivit the cry baby but without the garish ct. It really respect the nuances of the game and the gear used (I play a gibson les paul plugged into an amp orange rocker 30). L as I put the maximum score is the least we can do since I have never heard better.

(Oh yeah, it does not lack at all "power": it possde also a trim pot that allows rgler volume effect and becomes a real boost when it is pushed back ...).


It is a pure joy. It never ceases to test it from every angle. I found several rglages that sound really good for blues, big rock or classical mtal. Ok it is quite CHRE (about 300 euros), however it seems to me that it is not the problem. I do not know the Fulltone (which is more CHRE) but compared to wah MODELS of the more common it is well above all levels. I find her absolutely no reputable or "overrated". Frankly I do not understand the view Previous (plutt which looks like a face shot, not the fault of chance ...). Take the time to try it in all contexts: it is dj gniale low volume, home or RPET, but in concert when you push a little lamps that 'it comes into its own.

Although this choice I would do sr. This is the kind of pedals that keeps all his life.

Behind Real McCoy is a man: Geoffrey Teese. It is he who makes by hand, all RMC wah USA. CMJ 3 is the oldest (released in 1994) and also the most complete catalog.
You guessed, this is wah-wah (very) high end.

The setup is classic rocker rack adjustable resistance, mechanical switches, input / output device, powered by 9V battery or mains.
The particularity of this pedal is inside: a potentiometer exclusive RMC ROC-POT5, control of low frequencies, a midrange control, a control output level, control of Q, and what is more unusual 9 mini-switches to control the sweep of the pedal along with 2 knobs for fine adjustment.
These switches are in fact 9 to 9 octaves and "fine tuners" can play on the intermediate frequencies.

The pedal is solidly built and seriously.


Ah yes, I forgot, the adjustable parameters are accessible only inside the pedal. Yes you read that right: we must go back and remove the pedal to change its settings!
This is absolutely anti-practice!
For my part I played in the Dremel ® openings to access the various potentiometers. This facilitates the settings but it is still not ideal.

For a pedal this level range, it is incomprehensible!


It is on this subject that makes up this pedal.
We are here in the high-end: the sounds are superb, whatever the guitar or the amp used.
More adjustable parameters provide incredible versatility.
Imagine: you can already play the bass and midrange, the volume of output and the Q (filter width scanning).
Most importantly, you have access to 9 mini-switches: each has 2 positions, making 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2 opportunities, or 512!
Add the 2 fine tuners to play on the intermediate frequencies and that is an infinity of possibilities.
I assure you, the manual gives you some settings already approaching sounds "known". Other settings have very similar results. But other than that, your imagination is the limit.

Rolls of wahs.


A pedal expensive (300 euros), hard to find (handmade by Geoffrey Teese) and having the default pedal craft (often fragile, and after-sales service).
The sound quality is very high fly cons. Simply one of the best wahs on the market with the classics Fulltone, Vox, Morley, Dunlop or even Roger Mayer. Furthermore, this pedal is the most versatile: sounds wahs "classic" sounds totally new. A marvel.

For cons, the controls are inaccessible! How is it possible to imagine all the settings and make it so difficult to change?? Incomprehensible! It is therefore necessary to make openings for access, which simplifies the use, but it's not an ideal solution.

For this huge failure I put a severe 8 / 10 in total. Roger Mayer, who uses just the same kind of trick on its Vision wah, found a more practical solution, even if it is not perfect.
