Along with distortion and delay, the wah-wah is part of the âHoly Trinityâ of classic guitar effects. Invented by accident in the 1960s, the wah-wah can make a guitar sing, laugh, cry and scream like human being. Itâs a powerful effect thatâs helped take solos by Hendrix, Clapton and a thousand guitarists since to the highest echelons of classic rockdom. Now, T-Rex introduces the Gull Wah, their own interpretation of the wah-wah legend.
Two wahs and the long-forgotten yoy
Many of the wah-wah pedals produced over the decades are very different from each other. And then there are related effects â like the underrated (we think) yoy-yoy pedal. When we designed Gull, we wanted to bring you the very best that history has to offer â and then some.
Gull gives you two distinct wah-wah sounds â a light wah thatâs great for clean guitars and rhythm parts and a heavy, smoking wah for distorted leads â plus the unique dual-filter yoy-yoy effect. Yoy-yoy is a basically a wah effect with an ultra-high-frequency sweep soaring overhead. Itâs an incredibly rich sound.
A classic SLOPE knob lets you shape the character of your way/yoy sweep, and a BOOST function lets you set a higher volume for your output signal when you kick your Gull into action.
A more musical wah
The Gull addresses a complaint many guitarists have with traditional wah-wah pedals: their response. Wah-wahs often jump into action at the slightest touch, leaving little room to work the pedal and build up slowly.
Gull addresses this with a special HOTSPOT button that gives you the option of slowing the onset of the effect and using the whole pedal to âwahâ with. It makes Gull respond more like a musical instrument than many legacy pedals do.
The Wah to end all Wahs.
Traditional Wah pedals come with an expiration date â at some point you need to substitute the pot due to wear and tear.
The Gull Wah from T-Rex is different. Itâs equipped with a long lasting magnetic field sensor system. In practice this system is noise-free and eliminates additional maintenance over time. Simply put: The Gull Wah is built to last and lastâ¦and last!
