"The Legend" Weener Wah II
« on: August 16, 2013, 08:41:03 AM »
Weener wah II using my mojo parts, including 2n2924's in Q1 and Q2.  Cap selector has three additional caps wired between lugs 4,5,6 to lug 3, for 6 positions total.  Sounds great!  Artwork, "Her Face", is by Mehran Heard same artist that did the Cok Fite drawing on the double Fuzzface I built a little while back.  Check out his website at www.eatcho.com.

*edit*  I almost forgot to mention this has Joe Gagan's 12 tooth pot in it!  I used a razor sharp chisel to slightly deepen the mounting slot for the pot so the rack didn't run off the pot in full heel down position.

That is the coolest wah I've seen so far!! I'm seriously happy it's not mine though, cause I would be terrified to use that in an environment with people smoking and drinking (ie rehearsal space or a bar), not to mention disrespecting it by putting my dirty, smelly foot on it! Truly a work of art, Timbo!

Mehran is a fantastic artist, he did a long running comic strip in Fresno's community run newspaper called Properghanda and it is just fantastic.  I am lucky to have many original layouts for that strip as well as some paintings by him.  Check out his website and look at etsy to find his work for sale.

Demo:

Thanks for the nice words guys, but fear not about the artwork.  It is etched into 1/8" 6016-T6 aluminum plate so it shouldn't wear off anytime soon, and is under 3 coats of baked clear.  It is a little slick to use with socks, but barefoot or wearing shoes it has a nice feeling!

Good god this is gorgeous, why don't more people put a little wear on the corners? I have an old boss HM-2 from my uncle that looks beat a quarter to hell, and I love it. Let's start a weathered pedal trend  ;)

The only problem with this is that I wouldn't be able to bring myself to step on it.  It's really a work of art 8)

Damn, it's a real shame that that artwork is going to spend most of its life with someone's foot on it!

Wow, beautiful.  I think that is the first time I've seen somebody etch a wah.
