Waltham, MA(November 12, 2010) -- Gig-Fx has announced the release of the Peter Frampton Signature Megawah, specially tailored to his specifications. Peter has long been a fan of Gig-Fx pedals and has the Megawah and Prochop pedals as permanent fixtures on his pedal board. The new Signature pedal features the established Megawah sound with a slightly warmer high end and more defined lower end response.
Frampton says, “My Signature Megawah is a very special pedal. It has a unique sound with a warmth I can't get with anything else. It out-performs any wah out there with it's exceptional tone and different modes. I love it--it's on my pedalboard already!"
The all-analog Signature pedal features four settings actuated by a selector switch: a classic wah sound called Cry, the famous Megawah sound featuring a deep bass response for funkier quacking and more expressive wailing, a funky envelope wah with adjustable trigger sensitivity, and an auto-wah with adjustable rate.
The Signature Peter Frampton Megawah uses optical control and is bypassed when the pedal is all the way back and switches on noiselessly when the pedal is pressed forward. The pedal also features a user-adjustable off-delay so that the effect does not turn off inadvertently when rocking the pedal. Another difference is that Peter’s signature model is a mono pedal whereas the original Megawah is stereo in and out with two complete wah circuits. Being mono, Peter’s pedal offers cost savings over its stereo sister product.
The pedal features what Gig-Fx calls "Better than true bypass" circuitry, which the company says preserves guitar signals through cables better than true bypass will.
