Working, Working Working......

We have our prototype Wah Wah pedal done but it needs some more tweaking. It features both a vintage wound Halo inductor and a Red Fasil inductor. You will be able select each inductor separately or both in parallel or series. Very versatile. We will have an external bass adjustment which has the effects of changing the voicing of the wah.

We are also working on a special project for a Worship Leader of o church in Colorado. More on this soon.

Sorry for the delays in blog post. We will try to do better. We are just really busy with new projects and back orders.
THANK YOU to everyone who has ordered from us. We do appreciate you all.

I will also be highlighting two new company's I have come across in future post.
Thanks Again,
