NVPD!
« on: January 27, 2014, 05:12:52 PM »
Another New Vintage Pedal Day! :D

I am incredibly happy to report that I have become an owner of a Colorsound Supa Wah Fuzz Swell pedal!

Here it is in action


The wah side is scratchy, I'll see what I can do about that, and the Tone pot is dead, it works only on zero so the recorded sound is with the Tone pot all the way down. I am beyond happy, the wah sound is just that meow meow thin funky thing that I was looking for my whole life, and the fuzz is an incredible monster. Silicon Jumbo Tone Bender [if I did my research right] that has sustain for days, and just has that raunchy, incredible tone, AWESOME.
The transistor on both the wah and the fuzz side are BC184C.
here's the shot of the interiors



I'll make a picture or two of the exteriors tomorrow morning, it's in really good shape.

Wow, that's a beautiful piece of gear!! I dig the synthy sounds at minute 1:42.

My guitar teacher has a Coloursound wah and it really helps bringing the funk out!

Thank you guys!

What's even more epic, is that I've been e-mailing with Anthony Macaris the whole morning! I didn't even think that guys at MAcaris will respond. Not just that he responded, he thinks he has pots for this baby sitting in a drawer for 30 years. I am living a vintage dream just now :D

I know the feeling, I had a repair tech that I found that worked at Roland and helped with the Juno 60 and I was able to score some parts from him. There is nothing quite like that feeling. Its like needing a part and finding it in your drawer and not knowing you had it.. but multiplied by 100. lol

That is awesome!! Congrats, man.  Pure pedal porn.

I got a (plain) colorsound wah and know what you mean, nothing sounds like that, I wonder if that’s because of the circuit or also the mechanic system with that plastic shaft to drive the pot. Whatever it is, sounds sexy and funky, the travel is longer than usual too.
