It was a 'governer' of sorts that allowed the pedal to only travel so far, to the point he wanted, before the metal piece hit the pedal board floor, so it wouldn't wah out all the way. I was amazed and bewildered at the same time. Of course it sounded great, but I wondered why he didn't just have his tech add a freq sweep filter to the pedal.
Interesting! You would think a guy like Jeff Beck would have a custom wah made exactly how he wants it. But, I know a lot of musicians are on the road and have to make due with what they have...like putting a metal stopper on your wah
Kind of off topic, but the Line 6 M series pedals have great wahs and you can set the exact sweep to be as small or as large as you want and they also have a blend knob which helps retain the bass. 75 wet to 25 dry is a pretty nice sound for bass.
