Big, bold, badass wah wah.  That wah tone you've been searching for....  That wah wah tone that makes you think of John Shaft walking down the street....That wah tone you've heard on records but could never seem to get. 

Vintage-inspired....but better!  That's what you get with the Area 51 Wah. Not all vintage wah wahs were created equal.  Some are downright magical, and some are, well.......let's just say... less than inspiring.   One of the keys to building a magical wah, is understanding those things that make it "magical" in the first place.  Equally important, is how to make it repeatable.  Area 51 test every single one alongside a reference wah to ensure that they are extremely consistent. That applies to the wah kits also. They plug each board into a jig for sound testing. This is something that the big companies simply cannot do.

 Andy has a modified Dunlop Wah chassis with the full Area 51 conversion inside. he also has a switch on the wah to reverse the input and outputs to recreate the classic Gilmour "Seagull" effect used in songs like Echoes and Is There Anybody Out there from the Wall.

Aside from being a musician, Andy also builds his own effects pedals. Currently in his rig he uses clones of the original Rams Head Big Muff, the silicon Fuzz Face and the Univibe. All PCB's with the exception of the Univibe were sourced from Pigeon FX. Pigeon FX recreate the PCB's exactly as they were in the original pedals, so if you order a Rams Head big Muff off Andy it'll be built with an exact clone of an original EHX board, Likewise if you order a Fuzz Face it'll be built using an exact replica of an Arbiter board...... Right down to Arbiter being written on the board. They are quite simply the best reproduction boards on the market, and the first choice for Andy when building pedals to original manufacturers specifications.
