EBS Announces Stanley Clarke Signature Wah-Wah

EBS Announces Stanley Clarke Signature Wah-Wah

EBS releases its first signature pedal ever -- a Wah-Wah with Stanley Clarke.

Bromma, Sweden (December 31, 2008) -- For the first time in EBS' 20 year history, the company will release a signature product—and not just with anybody, but legendary bass player and composer Stanley Clarke.

The EBS Stanley Clarke Signature Wah-Wah is developed according to Stanley's personal taste and requirements with the intention to create the most accurate and sonically fulfilled bass wah-wah available.

The pedal works in four different modes: Low-pass, High-pass, Band-pass and Boosted Band-pass. It also features adjustable controls for Bandwidth and Frequency range. The footswitch is flexible and can switch between Wah-wah/bypass or Wah-wah/Volume. The pedal uses true bypass techniques.

The pedal was designed and developed by EBS Sweden AB in collaboration with luthier Thomas Lieber from Spellbinder Corp. USA and musician Stanley Clarke. Official release will be at the EBS booth D 3382 at the NAMM Show in January 2009. Stanley Clarke will appear for a meet-and-greet at 12 p.m. on Friday, January 16.

Price has yet to be announced.

Ted’s to-go kits: the silver box and the Big Black Bag.

Traveling with a collection of spare essentials—from guitar and mic cables to extension cords, capos, tuners, and maybe even a mini-amp—can be the difference between a show and a night of no-go.

Anyone who’s seen a spy flick or caper movie knows about go bags—the always-packed-and-ready duffles or attachés filled with passports, a few weapons, and cash that’s ready to grab and run with when the hellhounds are on your trail. As guitar players, we also need go bags, but their contents are less dramatic, unless, maybe, you’re playing a Corleone-family wedding.

The author’s PX-6131 model is an example of vintage-guitar evolution that offers nostalgic appeal in the modern world—and echoes of AC/DC’s Malcolm Young.

An old catchphrase among vintage dealers used to run: “All Gretsches are transition models.” While their near-constant evolution was considered confusing, today their development history is better understood. This guitar however is a true transition model, built just as the Jet line was undergoing major changes in late 1961.
