do you think of when you're asked, “What's the best sounding
wah-wah pedal ever?” You know the answer. The old Italian
built originals. The classic Brad Plunkett circuit. Simple.
Everybody knows it. Yet everybody has their own sonic picture of
what that perfect classic Italian wah-wah pedal's sound is. More
bottom end. Less bottom end. Richer mids. Thinner mids. Bright top
end. Smooth top end. A slow, articulate sweep. A fast, snappy
sweep. You know what it is. You've known it for a long time. It's
inside you. It's personal. You'd know it the first minute you
heard it. You've searched for THAT sound and you have the dusty
stack of pedals in the closet to prove it. And you've convinced
yourself that whatever it is you're using right now is as close as
you're ever going to get to THAT perfect sound.
RMC built this pedal, the RMC8-Guitar Eqwahlyzer, for you. Your sound.
RMC8 begins with the proper sonic foundation. The classic Plunkett
design, used by permission, blueprinted from an Italian original.
A small toggle switch located under the rocker lets you change the
sweep contour from the fast
response of an "NOS Icar-taper" pot to the slow,
expanded range articulation of the "aged Icar-taper" ROC-POT 5.2
wah pot. The tone-shaping capability continues with the switchable
5-band graphic equalizer located on
the front slope of the case. The EQ is within the wah circuit,
only available when the wah is turned on, and then only if you
want the EQ to be on. From lows to highs and in-between, you can
shape your wah sound to be THAT sound, all in real-time.
RMC8 is all analog and built with double clad copper circuit
boards, through-hole components in the wah circuit, surface mount
components in the equalizer circuit, 5 bands of +/- 15 db
equalization with center-detent sliders, LED indicator light for
the EQ circuit so you know when the EQ is active, EMI resistant
Karmaflux inductor, heavy-duty Italian true-bypass on/off switch,
dependable one million cycle ROC-POT 5.2 wah potentiometer, and
case-mounted input and output jacks. The RMC8-Guitar Eqwahlyzer is
housed in our new extended wah shell with a silk-screened bottom
plate, multi-sparkle graphite grey finish, and topped
with a black footpad.
Just like all RMC wahs, the
RMC8-Guitar Eqwahlyzer is developed and built by Geoffrey Teese
and includes licensed fuzz-friendly technology, true-bypass,
easily adjustable rocker pedal tension, and double-recessed AC
adapter jack, and is covered by our limited one year warranty.
