The wah that Hendrix and Clapton used in the '60s.

Clyde McCoy was a big-band Trumpet Player in the '60s... not a great musician, but one famous for getting a muted wah wah sound. This led to Vox trying to approximate this muted trumpet sound in a guitar pedal... hence the Vox "Clyde McCoy" wah wah circa 1967.

Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton used a Vox "Clyde McCoy" model wah wah. Photos taken during the recording of Electric Ladyland document Jimi's as being the "signature" model, featuring Clyde McCoy's name written out script style on the bottomplate. The other type of Clyde McCoy was the "picture" version, which had Clyde's photo on the bottomplate. The "signature" model, with it's great sounding "halo" inductor, is what the Fulltone Clyde standard wah effect pedal is modeled after.

The Fulltone CLYDE wah pedal was born from taking the best of the best of Fulltone's vintage Vox wah collection, and analyzing every aspect... going so far as sacrificing a few of the vintage inductors to get it right.

Our Inductor is a tuned core handmade unit using exactly the same type wire and inductance as the '60s-era Vox, except very consistent from one unit to the next. A tuned core inductor is much more expensive to make, but the end result is worth it. Drop this into your wah and experience the difference. The only change from the original '60s Vox design is the addition of a very usable internal Resonance Control which is a large durable trimmer, for bass and gain adjustment, which is easily adjustable by hand without tools and with room to mark your favorite settings.

All 2008 Fulltone's CLYDE Standard wah pedals sport the most authentic '60s Vox-type inductor available, which happens to also be the quietest.

  • Clyde "Standard"

    As reviewed by Jason on 5/19/2010

    I've played all the wahs, and Fulltone beats everyone hands down. This is a great pedal if you need it for one song or a hobbyist. But there is a better pedal out there, the Fulltone Deluxe. I had the standard, but months later bought the Deluxe because it has all the options I need to take names live. It is like upgrading from a Ford Fiesta into a Mustang. If you like experimenting, throwing different sounding wah voicings into your music, this pedal is not for you, dish out the extra money and buy the Fulltone Deluxe. But either way, if you need a wah, don't even look at other brands, True Bypass for tone freaks and built like a tank, Fulltone did it right

  • I love this wah!!!!

    As reviewed by TV on 6/11/2010

    I went from a Morley, to a Vox Clyde wah, to this Fulltone Clyde, and this one is fantastic. I get the loudest, pruest, most true signal through this one. Adjustable sweep on the wah is internal, but once you get it set you can just forget its even there. Great on 70's type fills as well as monstrous on those Jeff Healy type leads! I love this wah!!!!

  • Fulltone has done it again!

    As reviewed by Chris on 6/7/2010

    I have to say I love the Fulltone products. This wah is a must have! It gives so many different tonal options that other wah pedals don't.
