No Knobs To Adjust. Just Simply RED
"Incredibly musical and vocal…
the way it was always supposed to be."
-Allen Hinds

The XW-2 is a refined wah pedal design with an emphasis on
“minimal controls with maximum tone”.

The wah tone and EQ are dialed in to perfection making accessing the perfect wah sound easier than ever. With plug-and-play simplicity, you can achieve the finest wah sound that will truly elevate your creative ingenuity. The pedal features custom wound inductor, pot and circuit which not only captures the pure essence of vintage Clyde McCoy (as XW1 did), but also breathes an evolved essence (of wah) that goes beyond vintage. As with the XW-1, the pedal has a relay-based true bypass switch and adjustable rocker tension to optimize your rocker pedal to your liking.
