Rippah Booster Wah


A faithful reproduction the Maestro Boomerang wah with tons of tuning options

Vintage tone, modern tone and can replicate just about any wah tone!

Whether you enjoy the vintage quack of a 1967 Clyde McCoy wah pedal, the deep throaty tones of a Macari wah or you simply love the deep synth tones of a more modern wah. The Rippah Q-Wah allows you to dial in your favorite wah tones via the easy to access control knobs. Making your heavenly wah tone that you hear in your head just a turn of a knob away. The low end of the Rippah Booster Wah has a slightly different characteristic to it than your average wah circuit. There is a little more throat and growl in the low end which makes it ideal for the player that really wants to cut through the mix. Another advantage is if you want to clean it up a bit and tame the growl of the pedal, you can by simply tuning it out. With just about every wah sound imaginable at your finger tips the Rippah Booster Wah is sure to become an effective weapon in the studio and on stage as well. Every wah comes standard with a  Sweep control at the front of the pedal. This allows you to dial in how deep the sweep in the pedal goes. While it is rather subtle from the mid point to the max it adds a little more throat to the depth of the sweep if you max it out and just the opposite when turning it down. The wah also comes with either twelve position Q position switch  that allows you to adjust the position of the Q in the sweep. You can adjust it to a deep synth like growl to a high almost envelope filter type of sound. Also included is a growl knob at the heel of the pedal. This allows you to adjust the amount of bass and gain that is in the circuit. So whether you like to have a lot of deep throat to the sound of the wah or you like a little more quack to your sound the growl knob will help you dial in that sound you hear in your head. Every Rippah Booster Wah comes standard with a built in fuzz buffer. What this means is that the Wah will work just as well in front of a fuzz pedal. Inside the pedal you will notice a small blue trimmer. This is a volume control that controls the output of the pedal so if you like your pedal at unity gain or you like to boost it up a little for a searing lead the volume control will allow you to get there. Although I caution you to not turn up the boost too much as it will likely amplify any noise that the circuit or your amp may produce. The Rippah Booster Wah is built with NOS Mullard Tropical Fish capacitors, carbon composition resistors in the wah circuit and BC109B transistors.  Each pedal comes equipped with True Bypass and a super bright LED on the side so you don't accidentally leave your wah on. Each pedal also contains a Wilson Effects vintage taper wah pot that was replicated by measuring the taper of a vintage Car taper pot.

The Rippah Booster Wah operates on an industry standard 2.1mm center negative power supply or a high quality alkaline battery. All pedals are covered by a one year warranty on parts and labor and is hand built right here in the U.S. If you should happen to have any other questions about the Rippah Booster Wah please feel free to contact us via the contact form on the Home page.
