For well over four decades I’ve been a working guitarist. Because of this one simple fact all of my wah models so far have been geared towards guitars. Well, I became a working bassist in 2009 and realized that I needed a unique bass wah to compliment my playing. To make sure I helped real bassists, and not just depend on my own guitarist-turned-bassist indulgences, I started working with professional bass players around the world to find what it was they wanted in a wah pedal.
To all of those remarkable players, and to all you bassists reading, I dedicate my RMC9-Bass Eqwahlyzer.
The RMC9 starts off with a great bass wah sound (the wah envelope extends down below 100Hz) and expands from there. A small toggle switch located under the rocker lets you change the overall resonance of the wah effect from normal to enhanced. The tone-shaping capability continues with the switchable 5-band graphic equalizer located on the front slope of the case. The EQ is within the wah circuit, only available when the wah is turned on, and then only if you want the EQ to be on. You can shape your bass wah sound like you’ve always wanted to, all in real-time.
The RMC9 is all analog and built with double clad copper circuit boards, through-hole components in the wah circuit, surface mount components in the equalizer circuit, 5 bands of +/- 15 db equalization with center-detent sliders, LED indicator light for the EQ circuit so you know when the EQ is active, EMI resistant Karmaflux inductor, heavy-duty Italian true-bypass on/off switch, dependable one million cycle ROC-POT 5.2 wah potentiometer, and case-mounted input and output jacks. The RMC9-Bass Eqwahlyzer is housed in our new extended wah shell with a silk-screened bottom plate, multi-sparkle universal black finish, and topped with a black footpad.
Just like all RMC wahs, the RMC9-Bass Eqwahlyzer is developed and built by Geoffrey Teese and includes licensed fuzz-friendly technology, true-bypass, easily adjustable rocker tension, and double-recessed AC adapter jack, and is covered by our limited one year warranty.
