THE EBS STANLEY CLARKE SIGNATURE WAH/TONE FILTER IS MUCH MORE THAN A STANDARD WAH PEDAL. IN FACT, THE MAIN IDEA BEHIND IT WAS TO SIMPLY USE IT AS A TONE FILTER TO BE ABLE TO RE-CREATE THE SOUND OF STANLEY CLARKE w/ A STANDARD PASSIVE BASS. AND OH, DID WE MENTION IT CAN BE USED AS A VOLUME PEDAL TOO?!
Use as tone filter. Stanley Clarke's signature tone can be achieved w/ this signature pedal and a passive standard bass for a lot less than it would cost to purchase an active electronics high-end boutique instrument. Rise to the levels and spectrum of tone that until now was solely instilled in those high-end bass guitars. The pedal pad is a releaseably secure mechanism that can be adjusted to maintain its position once you to find a desired tone within the pedals frequency sweep. It is also utilized w/ upright basses not limited to electric basses!
As a Wah pedal. The Stanley Clarke Signature Wah is highly flexible as a wah-wah pedal. It does not affect the entire frequency range, like many other wah pedals do, which helps preserve the bottom of your sound while using the effect. The pedal feature four different preshape pass modes, Low-pass, High-pass, Band-pass and Boosted Band-pass. In addition, it offers controls to adjust the Range and Width of the effect span.
As a volume pedal. The pedal has a switch on the side that desides what happens when you switch off the wah effect. One setting simply bypass the effect, but the other turn theWah pedal into a Volume pedal when the wah effect is switched off. There's also an Active/Passive switch on the side, in case you use the pedal w/ an instrument w/ active electronics.
The EBS Stanley Clarke Signature Wah evolved through collaborative effort w/ Thomas Lieber of the Spellbinder Corp. USA and Stanley Clarke.
