PREVIEW: EVH Signature Wah

The EVH Wah Wah is the latest offering in the EVH Signature Series, developed after intensive design collaboration with the legendary guitarist. Early on in the process, Eddie handed over his “Holy Grail” Crybaby—a standard Crybaby customized in the early Nineties with a more vocal-like, High Q inductor and a wider frequency sweep.

Amazingly, we found that over the years Eddie’s unique wah style, which uses mostly the middle range of the pedal’s action, had carved his own curve into the pot’s resistive element, making the middle range even more defined and increased the low-end sweep. Our clones of the worn-in pot and hand-selected inductor give the new EVH Wah Wah the same "Holy Grail" feel and tone, and its true hardwire bypass, dual bright blue bypass LEDs, and graphics based on the black and yellow-striped guitar featured on Van Halen II round out this EVH-approved Crybaby with a voice and look all its own.

TONE FREQ’s REACTION... Van Halen fanboys (and girls) rejoice for yet another striped EVH offering. Dunlop/MXR has done a supurb job with the line thus far and has delivered in every way: looks, tone and cost. A must have for all the Hagar-era VH tribute bands - can you say Poundcake? I’ll be in line for this bad boy when it comes out like Wolfie at Dunkin’ Donuts!
