I am absolutely blown away with how this wah
sounds and responds. I'm almost speechless. I have tried and
purchased so many wahs over the years from 535's, Roger Mayer Red Lion and BOYC
kits, RMC3s, etc. and this one makes me want to cry. We must have the same
appreciation for what we both like hearing in wah pedals because this one is it.
From the volume to the Q, tone, sweep and responsiveness I'm just finding it
hard to believe that the wah in my head is now on the floor in front of me.
I'm so rarely impressed with a piece of gear but
it is perfect for me. You're the man.
Just wanted to let you know you did an outstanding job on my wah! You nailed
it! It's so hard to find an authentic sounding wah.....well, at least it used
to be. Nice job. And I know of what I speak - 30 years ago I was in a Hendrix
cover band with an old Cry Baby Wah and an original Uni-Vibe. I know what it's
supposed to sound like....
DAN!!!!!! holy **** !!!! this thing sounds un-f****** beliveable!!!! Man ,you do great work i"m telling you this
verison sounds great, you took something that i thought was great before and took it to the next level of wah wah's . i hope you
sell alot of wah's and kits because your wah's sound the best !!!!!
thank you so much,
p.s. can't wait to blow
evereybodys mind when i click this beast on and win my crown back!!!HA!!HA!!
Back story on the above comment: This gentleman sent his older Area 51 Wah to me for
an upgrade/update to current spec after he heard another local player using a
new Area 51 – Dan
I bought a drop-in wah kit from you on e-bay a couple of weeks ago. You
probably don't need any more endorsements but here's another one anyway.
I've been playing gigs since 1976. I've owned most brands of conventional
wahs, plus a digital modeling wah. I used yours for a gig last night for the
first time. At last everything I wanted in wah voicing, with the added
bonus of no noise. A joy to use.

I just wanted to send you a quick email to tell you that I
am loving your pedal, it is truly amazing!
Thanks for that!

I've been very happy with the greatest wah I have ever
played. And I played thru them all. Crybaby, Vox, F******e, T***e,
all of them sound weak to me. This is by far the greatest investment I have made
in terms of pedals.
Please feel free to use this as a testimonial if you so
desire. You have tons already, but just in case. (don't mind if I do....-
I put the battery eliminator kit in and assembled the wah tonight.
WOW, Holy ****! I just purchased an original "film canister" inductor off
ebay recently and put it in my very aged Vox wah and it is awesome, but it is
noisy. Believe me I paid a pretty penny for it. I have to figure the
part is somehow microphonic. It does sound killer at the same time.
Your little "brainchild" sounds every bit as good and at the same time is very
quiet with a simply and absolutely killer vibe. Holy smoke, this sucker smokes,
I'm afraid you might just be letting the cat out of the bag here! Soon the
world will find out and we'll all be defenseless. A Huge Applause!!!

Received the wah today. Wow, I'm very pleased.
There are so many options and it's really a world of discovery for me right now.
But certainly enjoyable. I've started with the standard settings and
adjusting from there. I assume the buffer was turned on already.
I'll save tuning that for last (if necessary).

Thanks so much! I am a wah addict and yours is the closest
I've heard to my old Italian one. I love it. It will be on the road soon.
If I was there I'd have to grab you and give you a hug!
This is without a doubt the best and funnest wah I've ever played. You've
got the sound nailed perfectly. That's what a wah should sound like.
Will refer you to all concerned.

I just got done installing your wah drop in kit. I
ended up using a different housing than we originally discussed. The RMC
we initially talked about was kinda narrow, not much room in there, and the pot
didn't want to mount on the mounting ridge very well. (If anybody out
there has this problem, email me - I have a solution - Dan)
had an old Dunlop GCB95-F that I didn't care for, so I used that housing and it
worked just fine. Drilled out the AC adapter plug hole to 1/2" and it
mounted flawlessly. I also had no issues soldering the included components
onto your pc board. Plugged it up and it worked perfectly. I am
compelled to tell you that this pedal is the real deal! It is very
musical, which is what it's all about anyway. My band played 130 gigs last
year, and on track to do 110 this year, and I can honestly say that I hardly
ever wanted to use my old wah pedals on a gig. We are now performing more
tunes that specifically call for wah effects, which is what led me to find the
Area 51 wah. Gigs are starting to slow down a bit, we've been canceled on
a few gigs because of the economic situation. So, I am "jobbing" out a
with various bands and shows, and I'm finding the wah pedal is a staple sound
needed by versatile guitarists. In quantifying what makes your pedal so
great... your wah is "usable" through the entire sweep. No harsh highs,
and not muddy with the heel down. "Great musical voice" is the only way to
Thanks for creating a great wah! You rock!
I just installed your drop in wah kit in a brand new Dunlop
GCB-95 box. Installation was simple. All I can say is WOW. The
difference in the quality of the tone and the overall output from the original
is amazing. Also, I found your customer service to be excellent.
Shipping and delivery was prompt and reasonable in price. This is a great
product and I will not hesitate to recommend it to anyone I know. Thank
you..............keep up the good work, it is a pleasure to do business with
people who come through in a prompt, courteous manner and provide a quality
product at a reasonable price.
Heya....Just a short note to thank you again for getting
the wah out in time. Recording went great and last night was my first gig
with it. Tremendously great pedal! I love it a lot. I still
feel like I've only figured out a fraction of the possible tonal qualities...
Just a bit of feedback for you on the wah pedal I bought.
I think it's great! Best sounding wah I have ever
played out of the box (I've owned various Dunlop, Vox and Morley and played
Boss, Fulltone and Roger Mayer - Area 51 beats them all!) So far I've only
really been using the "stock" tone. That is a great wah sound. I got
the extra controls and range selector too so I'm sure I'll be finding other
great tones in the future. My only initial criticism was I thought the
treadle/rocker was too loose. Then I read the manual and a feature of it
is it's adjustable! Perfect!
She sounds Great!!! I'm putting her into her new spot
to work with my 1970 Marshall small box 50! It has great quack and growl
too! Quite simply the BEST boutique wah pedal being built
