Now I think I'll start from scratch in one of those enclosures. I always hated the Crybaby anyway.
However I seem to be having trouble finding these Bespeco pedals in the US. Any suggestions?
That pedal looks exactly like a Boss/Roland volume pedal to me, at least the plastic parts do. I have a couple at home, not sure how the pedal-to-pot linkage is built but if I think of it I'll dig them out and check when I get home. I had them controlling parameters on my Lovetone Meatball for 4 or 5 years during my classic-rock party-gig years and they still work fine. (aka lots of spilled beer and whatnot)

Extreme close-up of Jer using the Colorsound wah in the Sunshine Daydream movie (from 8/72).

WILSON WAHHHH!!!!!!


Seriously the Wilson Rippah Qwah CAN DO THE COLOURSOUND EXACTLY!

and THATS NOT THE ONLY SOUND IT CAN DO. It has 3 knobs which give you a ton of variation. Plus at $175 for the base model, its right in the price point of Dunlop but with a bunch more features. Its awesome

Alright, if you want to NAIL the early Jerry colorsound tone, spring for an RMC 3. Fully tunable. My wah tone isn't much like Jerry's, but I decided to set it up for Colorsound settings just for shits and giggles, and hot damn was I blown away. Sounded PERFECT. Nice and bassy. And plus, when you get tired of the colorsound tone, you can set it up to sound like any wah pedal ever made. It's ridiculously awesome :cool:

Hey Jerry1996x...I have an RMC3 and have been struggling trying to get the "colorsound" sound (it probably doesn't help that I lost the instructions with the basic settings). Would you be able to shoot me your settings so that I could try them out?

Castledine Electronics in the UK is making Colorsound wahs to 70's specs (with true bypass).
