Fulltone Introduces New Custom Shop Supa-Wah

The Supa-Wah model builds on the Clyde wah concept and comes clad in a Metallic-White finish.


The Supa-Wah offers versatility by using the iconic Clyde wah as a starting point and offering two additional Modes, for a total of five unique voices. The modes are accessible via a large rotary switch located on the right side of the pedal. PHAT mode is the throatiest, most vocal Wah sound and a personal favorite of Michael Fuller himself. SUB is deep, grunty, and unbelievably expressive option.

The Supa-Wah is powered by a matched-pair of rare BC109B transistors (subject to availability) which were the same ones used in 1960s Vox Clyde McCoys. It provides an adjustable input LEVEL Knob, allowing the signal to hit the wah circuit cleanly (when turned down) or to overdrive it for grit and more overtones (when turned up).

A chambered body and enhanced switching make this affordable Revstar light and loaded with tones.

Scads of cool tone combinations. Articulate pickups. Relatively light. Balanced and comfortable. Well built.

Some P-90 players might miss the extra grit the Revstar trades for articulation.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
