    Hey guys, check it out. The first batch of EMB Pedal Wahs are pretty much done and will be shipping soon. The second batch is underway now =)

    These are hellaciously expensive but absolutely worth it. I may have to get one some day. Plus the light up treadle is just ****ing awesome.

    Yeah the price is definitely high but when you consider what it actually is and what you're receiving it's definitely worth it =) It's far from a typical "wah pedal" lol.

    Look how thick that steel is! These things must be built like tanks!

    For $500 they better be. Though there are some builders selling $450+ wahs that put them in Dunlop shells.

    The EMB Pedal Wah is nothing like a Dunlop either physically or circuit design. I am a big fan of Dunlops and still own several including two of their rackmount wahs (Steve vai's Dunlop 1S and a 1SR) but there's no comparison, especially with anything remotely high gain.

    The biggest hurdle we face is people thinking "wah pedal" and translating that to an $80 Dunlop or Vox. Even the boutique guys are still using the same 40 year old design but hand tuning/tweaking components for their version of the ultimate oldschool wah. That's cool and if those work for you, excellent! The EMB Pedal Wah is a different beast and for those that have tried it and love it, nothing else will not only give them the tone they want but also give them a tone unlike anyone else's right now.

    I agree, the EMB is a totally different beast than almost any other wah out there. If I had not just picked up a Fulltone Clyde Deluxe a few months ago I would be very interested in this. I really hope they keep making them because I can totally see myself picking one up maybe next year.

    About 40 people so far including a few you may (depending on your music tastes) see onstage this summer during a few different tours =)

    I figured it'd be mostly touring pro musicians.

    There have been a few in these 2 batches but the majority is your average player. Many people have been waiting for this wah since the 90s =)

    ive returned to morley after trying a bunch of vintage and boutique inductor driven wahs.

    I really like my Dimebag wah. There's a few clips of the EMB and the range and clarity is really good. If there exists a clip that will absolutely blow me away, I will get one.
    The opinions expressed above do not necessarily represent those of the poster and are to be considered suspect at best.
