The XW-1 is based upon the 1967-1968 Italian-built Clyde McCoy wah.

Van Nuys, CA (November 6, 2014) -- After four years of research and development, the wah pedal has been redefined. Inspired by what most consider the “Holy Grail” of wahs, the 1967-1968 Italian-built Clyde McCoy wah, the new Xotic Effects XW-1 wah captures that classic tone but with unique controls that allow you to shape and contour your sound in unlimited ways!

Our new wah pedal has incredible features like self-lubricating nylon bushings, gold contact relay with true bypass switching, fully adjustable Wah-Q and Bias controls, two-band EQ, low battery alert, Fuzz-friendly buffering circuit, and it’s 20% smaller!

MSRP: $295.00
