I was excited to receive another TONEbUTCHeR pedal in the mail. The PocketPus was a really exciting demo and give away so it’s great to follow up with something new. Huck at TONEbUTCHeR sent over a new ‘micro pedal‘ called the WeeWah demo.
As with all of TONEbUTCHeR pedals, no instructions are provided. It’s about experimentation and creativity. Letting your ears and imagination guide you instead of the instruction. In a nutshell, this is an envelope filter (vactrol based). The pedal is very reactive and sensitive to how you play the instrument. Basically two knobs and toggle switch to manage the sweep direction. These *micro* pedals are TINY for sure. The PocketPus has a very small battery, but the WeeWah has an adapter.
Here is the official description of the TONEbUTCHeR WeeWah:
We are excited to pre announce a new micro pedal in our line – The Tonebutcher Weewah – a Vactrol based envelope filter – the same used in the classic MuTron. The Weewah has a switch that controls a reverse sweep on the envelope from low to high or high to low. This pedal sounds excellent by itself and takes the Pocketpus to another level when chained together.
For this demo we again have Jimmy Rolle taking the pedal through it’s paces. Jimmy is playing his Les Paul Elegant Custom Shop into a Germino Lead 55 (on a side note, I’m sort of in love with his Germino Lead 55 – it’s now officially on my want-to-buy-list) through a Marshall 4×12. The whole thing is mic’d up with a Shure SM57 and Fathead Ribbon mic. There is nothing between the guitar and amp besides the WeeWah
