The wah that Hendrix and Clapton used in the '60s.

Clyde McCoy was a big-band Trumpet Player in the '60s... not a great musician, but one famous for getting a muted wah wah sound. This led to Vox trying to approximate this muted trumpet sound in a guitar pedal... hence the Vox "Clyde McCoy" wah wah circa 1967.

Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton used a Vox "Clyde McCoy" model wah wah. Photos taken during the recording of Electric Ladyland document Jimi's as being the "signature" model, featuring Clyde McCoy's name written out script style on the bottomplate. The other type of Clyde McCoy was the "picture" version, which had Clyde's photo on the bottomplate. The "signature" model, with it's great sounding "halo" inductor, is what the Fulltone Clyde standard wah effect pedal is modeled after.

The Fulltone CLYDE wah pedal was born from taking the best of the best of Fulltone's vintage Vox wah collection, and analyzing every aspect... going so far as sacrificing a few of the vintage inductors to get it right.

Our Inductor is a tuned core handmade unit using exactly the same type wire and inductance as the '60s-era Vox, except very consistent from one unit to the next. A tuned core inductor is much more expensive to make, but the end result is worth it. Drop this into your wah and experience the difference. The only change from the original '60s Vox design is the addition of a very usable internal Resonance Control which is a large durable trimmer, for bass and gain adjustment, which is easily adjustable by hand without tools and with room to mark your favorite settings.

All 2008 Fulltone's CLYDE Standard wah pedals sport the most authentic '60s Vox-type inductor available, which happens to also be the quietest.

Comments about Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Guitar Effect Pedal:

This wah is impeccable, if you like vintage wah (with a little bit of steroids)this is it. It's incredible how vocal this thing is, it also has a watery tone if you rock fast enough. It's also mechanically smooth too!!. Now that it has a buffer installed which you can dial without opening the pedal it makes it super versatile, now you can use it with your favorite fuzz.


Great wah, but pricey.

Comments about Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Guitar Effect Pedal:

I bought this to replace my Dunlop Jimi Hendrix wah that got stolen. I can't say enough good things about this pedal. Before I start, I'd like to reiterate what someone else wrote about buying local. My wah works flawlessly, so don't be discouraged by some bad reviews. Anyway, I bought the Clyde Standard because I'm sort of a purist when it comes to wah pedals, and didn't really want the extra bells and whistles of the Clyde Deluxe. This pedal is sturdy, sounds great, and I imagine will give me years of wonderful use. It's a little pricey, but totally worth it.

Comments about Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Guitar Effect Pedal:

I dont Know if Musicians Friend is mailing out bogus ones, but I have never had any problem from any of my Fulltone Products. I am a touring musician and beat the living hell out of my pedalboard. I own this wah, a mdv 2 , 70's fuzz. I only have great things to say about Fulltone.So I would try buying local instead.


Very Good

Comments about Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Guitar Effect Pedal:

This is an excellent wah pedal! I love how the highs are nice and smooth, not shrill, and the lows are clear and never muffled and muddy. The Clyde has a nice smooth extended throw that aids in subtle expressive control. After playing many wah pedals over the years my search for the perfect wah is over and IMHO Fulltone makes the best wah available today. The only wah that I might like a little better is my Clyde Deluxe.

Comments about Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Guitar Effect Pedal:

I returned this item. I wrote a note and rubber banded it to the box. "Please, don't send this item out to another musician, it is horrible, check it."The thing had more static in the pot than you could imagine. The footpad was scuffed too when I got it... Uhhh, previously returned???Really bad and I had high hopes...

Last WAH pedal you'll ever need


from Portland, Maine

Comments about Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Guitar Effect Pedal:

Let me start by saying I NEVER bother to write reviews on anything. I'm a pro guitarist (as in Berklee College of Music), not a garage band hack. I've used a TON of WHA pedals over the course of my life, Crybaby's, Vox, no-name brands, don't even get me started on the junk that Morley makes. This WHA pedal is hands down the best you can get. The tone is so smooth and transparent. It's also a True Bypass pedal. I'm not a huge believer in having to have all of your pedals be True Bypass. However, for pedals that produce noise and alter tone like WHA pedals do, it's a must. I compared this pedal side by side using the exact same setup and cords as a Dunlop Crybaby 535. Aside from the fact that the Clyde blows the Crybaby away in terms of the WHA tone, it also smoked it in terms of noise. The Crybaby produces noise and alters your tone, even when the pedal is off. If you don't believe me, then you've either got bad hearing, or simply have no idea what you should be listening for. If that's the case, even the best gear in the world isn't going to help you. Bottom line, this pedal produces a superb WHA sound and unlike so many others out there, doesn't alter your tone AT ALL or add noise AT ALL whether the pedal is on or off.Add it to your pedalboard and you'll never need another WHA again.

The throw back Vox

Comments about Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah Guitar Effect Pedal:

This is it. Just like it, the Vox wah. You know the ones hendrix used. Ah dont want to hear about the Crybaby. This is for a seasoned user anyway. Very sensitive and high quality. I have this and a crybaby, put them in line with each other. The range from low to high is not of this earth. Best feature is the adjustable output housed inside the unit. Set it and forget it. Then again, it's made by fulltone.
