    I was wondering whether you guys could help me. I'm doing a case study on the wah pedal for my technological studies class. I was wondering if anyone had any good links with info or schematics. Either that or does anyone have a wealth of wah pedal knowledge.

    thank you in advance:)

    Send an Email or letter to Dunlop. Give them the backgrounf and what you need.

    Do the same to Morely, and maybe Ibanez or VOX.

    If it's for academia, some companies are cool about helping out.

    You should also check out "Guitar Effects Pedals - The Practical Handbook" by Dave Hunter. There is a decent section on wah's. This is the best book I have found regarding effects. It contains schematics, a CD with soundclips, the history of effects and interviews with some great effects manufacturers. Good luck.
