Wilson Effects Updates the Freaker Wah

Wilson Effects Freaker Wah V2 Pedal

Wilson Effects has updated their Freaker Wah with the Freaker Wah V2, which they explain offers more flexibility in addition to some updates to the circuit. Equally useful on bass and guitar, the unit is based on the vintage circuit used by Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler.

The dual-filter synth wah offers a wide range of frequency sweeps with a width control located at the toe of the pedal and a six-position range control situated next to the input jack. Updates to the pedal include more volume and boost as well as a toggle switch that chooses between two modes. The original mode has a volume drop at the heel of the pedal, while the V2 mode eliminates that drop.

Other features 9VDC battery or power supply operation and true bypass switching. The pedal is available now with a street price of $225.
