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.

Perhaps I got a one off bum pedal, but mine had a problem. When off, true bypass which is great. But when clicked on there was a noticeable hum. A hum I've never heard with any other wah. Even when I turned the guitar volume all the way down, the hum was there. I tried different cables, but still the problem remained. The battery was also installed on the battery jacks when I got it, which I think is a bad idea. I would send the battery wrapped, or bagged because it could leak. With that said, the sweep and tone was fantastic. Best wah tone I've ever heard. However, the inherent hum is unacceptable, so I had to return it. Quite disappointed for such a high priced, highly praised unit.
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!!!!
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.
If you want a wah to do all this is that you should buy
I've been playing a lot of wah pedals throughout the years and I have to say this one takes the cake. Just like the brand name this pedal brings "Full Tone" to my guitars sound. I play a lot of funk music and this thing just makes my guitar sound soo sweet and funky.
This wah is great. It sounds amazing. It has a very classic tone. Having true bypass switching is great because it doesn't suck tone like many other wahs out there such as the crybaby. When compared to my Crybaby Original it has a wider sweep and does not suck the tone. This is on my pedalboard and I'm not searching for another wah. I would recommend this along with other fulltone products.
This is the best sounding, and best quality wah on the market. It's parts are top notch, and it is hand-wired. It sounds fantastic for those classic jimi hendrix style wah sounds. Another thing I love about this wah is that it has a very wide sweep range, and internal controls making this pedal very versatile.
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
so i am playing solo at a wedding with my 535q wah and my frind on the side is doing the chords & all off a sudden i hear some realy nice cool wah sounds that was just beautefull....so when i finished playing i found out that its the one and only Fulltone Clyde Standard Wah ....i whould deffently go for it in a heart beat...Hit The Music
