James...'s review"Best vintage wah out there"

Real McCoy Custom Wizard Wah
It's a wah. It's analog. That's it. No bells or whistles.

UTILIZATION

Once again...you don't need a manual or any know how. If you have a foot you can work this thing. Easy enough?

SOUND QUALITY

I have tried a lot of wahs. I have 2 favorites. That would be the RMC Wizard and the Fulltone deluxe wah. Both are pretty expensive and both are pretty amazing. But I have to say they are very different. Obviously the Fulltone has more options and knobs, but at the end of the day, that doesn't mean much. Just a bit more versatile. The Wizard is a much more traditional wah in sound and design. It has that vintage jimi dunlop thing going on very heavily. If you want that old fashioned 70's wah this is probably the best pedal to get. Period. The Fulltone has a much more refined sound. Also, the Fulltone has a bit more range I think. It's a more aggressive sweep than the Wizard. I've heard there's a pot inside the Wizard you can adjust to give it a more drastic travel but I haven't felt the need to try it.

I'll give you an idea of what the Wizard is for. In my prog rock and classic rock projects, I use it almost exclusively. For modern stuff and heavier rock I use the fulltone. I think the Wizard is a lot more organic sounding too. It has a life to it that really wakes up a guitar. The Wizard doesn't affect the tone as heavily either. Some guys I know will appreciate this.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a really bare bones wah for the traditionalist player. No tricks or frills. If I could only own a single wah I would probably have the fulltone instead but that's only because it's more changeable as far as sounds go. For the guys wanting that time machine wah, nothing beats the RMC. The quality is nothing to laugh at either. You pay for it and you get it. I haven't tried many other RMC wahs but from what I've heard they are all very good. My advice is try as many as you can. If you're in this price range you should do that anyway.

Real McCoy Custom Wizard Wah
Vox Wahwah format (or Cry Baby to your preference)
With a true bypass and a jack for 9v power supply
No adjustment, and a nice red Ferrari that makes the first who is blind astray

UTILIZATION

Flaw in my taste, the pedal is too soft and lacking in shopping, I prefer Morley.
Anyway despite that it is effective and takes up the block if you want a mid race to keep a filter effect.

SOUND QUALITY

This wah is designed as an original Vox suited to large modern distos, and my lambs eaten, unlike a Vox Cry or that will tend to go hand down on the media, it's clean and efficient.
Vintage quite a grain (based on the original Vox Sir McCoy) very nice

OVERALL OPINION

A very good Wahwah, which adapts to both clear slammin (who said casseroles;)) that large distos.
Made by hand in the US, so triéset quality components, as well, in that damage is not everywhere

Real McCoy Custom Wizard Wah
No adjustment
a large enough amplitude filter.
stroke average.

UTILIZATION

Simple as it is a wah without adjustment

SOUND QUALITY

Typ sound very vintage.
I use it with an Epiphone LP 100 and that's why I choisiu the wizzard that offers a lighter grain on double coils. Indeed, the RMC saturates quickly because it gives a lot of fishing to the sound. The whole being to find the right balance entrre the wah wah, amp and guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

I finally found a wah that sounds like I wanted. it is well worth over 200 euros but if I had to buy one that will no doubt this one. I think a wah really a personal instrument and it takes up to try to find one that suits us best, for my part, it's on, it's CMJ. Ingala sound in all my records play (rock, blues, funk, metal, jazz ...). Finally a wah with character!
The only drawback (if it is) is to have an action a little soft. Indeed, the mechanical being very flexible, it is difficult at first to completely control the clarity of sound and the magnitude of the effect.

In conclusion, my game took a empleur difference since I possess. One day she will be your .....

Real McCoy Custom Wizard Wah
It's a wah wah simple, optional input and output and a socket for the power supply. Technology to the old, analog. The interior consists of cables that seems hyper securely welded to a quality at least three times higher than the Dunlop I had before. The welds seem to be built to last. Everything is done to make this pedal remains robust at all levels. In a case of red beautifully. This is a beautiful and strong wah wah.Il lost my taste a slight boost to satisfy me fully.

UTILIZATION

Ben to the extent that you plug and you play there any more simple. Why a manual??
As against the pedal travel is short and it is not that easy to master.

SOUND QUALITY

So in terms of quality because we are literally transported. Clearly or saturated, the sound is bleuffant realism. Vocal, responsive, very organic, not digging in the midrange, the sound is still extremely well defined, even in the bass.
This is the best wah sound I heard. We buy a TON for the sound it delivers. Compared to competitors, even the Fulltone is over.

OVERALL OPINION

This is one of my favorite pedals although I do not control very well. It delivers a pure warm sound and expressive sound of the guitar is not "reduced" as a Dunlop, quite the contrary. This is pure wah wah pedal, I'm sure Jimi would have loved Himself is saying! For 180 euros (model expo in pedal - new 220 euros) is the best value for money considering that RMC Wah wah makes the best of the market. all handmade. What could be better? on the other hand, it is necessary to try before buying. do not blindly buy the material on the net, especially qu'RMC manufactures 6 different models!
