As we all know, a Chihuahua is a very tiny breed of dog. Likewise, the Chi- Wah-Wah is a very tiny breed of wah pedal—about the same size as a standard Boss pedal, to be exact. But as the double-entendre name suggests, there’s a lot of energy packed into this tiny beast, and its bark and bite belie its diminutive nature.
Despite its compact design, every single aspect of the Chi-Wah-Wah screams quality. Plutoneium deserves to be commended for their “spare no expense” approach to manufacturing. For example, the CWW’s casing is made from 1.5 mm rolled steel and features a tough powder-coated finish. The bottom plate is attached by four sturdy Allen screws, the nameplate is riveted to the casing, and jack labels are actually etched into the chassis. Top-mounted controls allow the user to tweak the effect on the fly, and knurled metal knobs with set screws sit atop metal pot shafts. Bulletproof !!
The Chi-Wah-Wah features a completely original 100% analog signal path that has the versatility to capture and recreate the legendary Wah sounds of yore, or take the effect into new sonic realms if you so desire. All of this within a compact armoured housing that will take up the space of only a single standard-sized effects pedal, with an actuation designed to free you to spontaneously express yourself through your music.
