Sonuus Introduces the Wahoo Filter Pedal

The Wahoo is a dual analogue filter stomp box where each filter can be configured as low-pass or band-pass and operate independently in wah pedal, envelope, LFO, and pitch-tracking modes.

Cambridge, UK (September 23, 2012) – Sonuus Limited announce the highly-anticipated release of the Wahoo wah/filter pedal for guitar and bass, following its launch at The NAMM Show 2012.

The Wahoo is a dual analogue filter stomp box where each filter can be configured as low-pass or band-pass and operate independently in wah pedal, envelope, LFO, and pitch-tracking modes. The warm-sounding fully analogue signal path is digitally controlled for precision, configurability and adaptability. Whether you want to recreate the character of vintage wah/filter pedals or break new sonic barriers, the Wahoo can do it for you.

The filters have a wide frequency range of 10Hz–4kHz, and wide resonance range from flat to self-oscillation. Moreover, resonance is not fixed, but can be varied dynamically so it can track the cutoff frequency to further expand your creative possibilities: from the funkiest filtered bass to the subtlest of tonal variations.

A mixer allows the amount of each filter in the effect to be controlled, and allows the dry signal to be mixed into the output. It also has a drive control to let you overdrive the filter to make it so warm it fizzes.

Packed with innovations such as a unique patent-pending pedal sensor for super-fine precision control that will never wear out, Transparent-True-Bypass giving all the benefits of true-bypass without the switching noise and an ultra-bright display that is readable outdoors but can also be dimmed when required.

The sturdy, lightweight aluminium chassis, paired with modern robust electronic design ensures that the Wahoo will stand up to the demands of the toughest gigs. Powered by DC, battery or USB, and with modern- yet-retro-styling, you can be confident it will fit into your rig.

Analogue with the convenience of digital: the Wahoo has 100 expertly-crafted factory presets and can store 100 user presets, allowing instant access to your favourite settings. With on-pedal control for instant tweakability and a USB connection for software editing and MIDI automation, the Wahoo is the perfect solution for the performing musician.
