    Wow, well this one definitely has it's own look.

    A good friend just stopped by randomly to loan me a few pedals.

    This one takes the cake for aesthetics. Can't wait to hear it.

    What in the world. I suspect it takes a special individual to own one of these.

    It looks somewhat like the modded Big Muff I made, that eventually found it's way to @GuitarsCanada I don't have any pics, wonder if Scott still has it?

    The Ooh Wah s essentially an 8-step sequencer and a discrete "twin-T" bandpass filter in a box. The Rndm switch selects between which of the up-to-8 steps randomly comes next, and stepping through them in fixed sequence. I made myself a Sample-and-Hold pedal last fall, that has certain sonic resemblances to the Ooh Wah, but where the Ooh Wah randomly selects which of the 8 step settings comes next, the S&H uses a noise source to randomly set where the filter moves to in the next step. There are pros and cons of each approach. Sequencer gives you more direct control, but is a little more predictable. Apologies in advance for the poor audio.

    I like the look--it's different--but I would need to play it first.

    WTF is a great description of the Ooh Wah.

    Bewildering is another.

    I did get sounds similar to the clip Mark posted. I’m not sure how much use a guy would get out of this one, but it took a really smart person to figure out how to make it.

    Now we just have to figure out why, LOL.

    The notion that some mad scientist sat at his workbench tweaking and twiddling with a pedal to come up with this .....


    Something very cool about that.
