A few years ago, I was on a heavy wah discovery kick. I was able to play with various wah pedals from Fulltone Clydes, to Teese to CryBaby, etc. On my short list that I wanted to mess around with, but didn’t have the opportunity was the MXR MC404 CAE Dual Inductor Wah. I’ve seen this wah on a few pro pedalboards. CAE or Custom Audio Electronics (Bob Bradshaw) makes amazing stuff, and it’s great that they team up with MXR on a few pieces.
The inductors are quiet important for the various wah tones. This wah has dual fasel inductors with two different voicings that are selectable! Additionally, there is a built in MXR MC-401 Boost/Line Driver that is selectable as well! One of the first mods that people do on the classic Dunlop GCB-95 wah is to make it true bypass. The MC404 is true bypass out of the box!
Check out this video which explains the MXR MC404 CAE Dual Inductor Wah very nicely:
Ok, about the deal. The MXR MC404 CAE Dual Inductor Wah lists for $298.68 and is usually available for $170, but is currently on sale for a great price of $140 at Amazon.com. That’s $30 off the going rate.. and the pedal ships for FREE!
