Wilson Mini Drop In Kit
These drop directly into the Dunlop mini wah housing with a very small amount of work. Below is the steps that need to be taken to modify your existing mini to fit the new Wilson board. Remove the nut on the exterior of the foot switch under the toe of the pedal. Remove the nuts in the input and output jacks. Remove the silver Phillips screw from the board inside the enclosure. Unplug the potentiometer from the board. With the pedal in the toe up position remove the existing circuit board and switch. Referring to the pictures in this posting, file down or drill out the small switch retainer where the foot switch is mounted. Remove the existing felt pad and install the new one included in the kit. Insert the new board with the pedal in the toe up position. Mount the board with the 2 new jack nuts first, then insert the Phillips screw you removed from the old board. (I often put a piece of electric tape or duct tape over the screw under the board just in case it should come in contact with the board. The new foot switch should be mounted horizontally (hence the reason for filing the retaining clip) to avoid contact with the potentiometer. Typically the inner nut should be all the way down and the washers can be mounted on the exterior with the external nut. Plug the potentiometer into the new board socket. Plug pedal in and adjust the internal trimmers to your liking. Mount bottom plate. Peel off the Cry Baby nameplate. Using some contact cement apply your new Wilson Effects badge and allow it to dry. Happy jamming!!! This board also negates the battery option of the pedal. A center negative 9v DC power supply is required. Say Hello to the world's first fully tunable, fuzz friendly, vintage spec (optional) mini wah pedal. Small & compact the Mini Vintage Wah will save you precious real estate on your pedal board without sacrificing tone. Full of vintage, modern and very expressive tones this little beast is sure to please you wah wah palette. Make sure you check this thing out on the Dirty channel of an amp as this little thing wails like a banshee. Let's check out some of the features; True Bypass Fuzz friendly output buffer with volume control. Internal Sweep range trimmer. External mid-range control. External resonance or growl control. 2.1mm center negative power jack. 1 year warranty on parts and labor (excludes potentiometer & enclosure). External controls can be mounted internally as here at Wilson Effects we are all about options. As mentioned above the pedal is designed with an output buffer integrated into the circuit. This not only allows the pedal to deal with the low input impedance of most fuzz & overdrive pedals but it also allows you to boost or cut the output of the pedal via the internal volume trimmer. This comes in very handy when adjusting the resonance control as this will boost or cut the gain of the pedal allowing you to adjust it specifically to your needs. The internal sweep trimmer is designed to take the place of the resistor across the inductor of the wah circuit. What this does is dial in the sweep range of the pedal. The greater the resistance the greater the amount of sweep you are able to attain. Dialing this back to zero will result in a loss of wah effect in the pedal. The mid-range control controls the amount of mids within the wah circuit. Dialing this control towards the heal will thin out the sound and dialing it towards the front will thicken it up. This comes set to a stock value of 1.5K which is the norm for most classic wah circuits. The resonance control otherwise known as the growl control adjusts the frequency response or resonance of the pedal. Dialing this towards the hell of the pedal will result in a darker throatier sound. Dialing this control towards the front of the pedal will result in a thinner brighter wah sound. The pedal has no internal battery option due to the space inside of the enclosure. You can use an industry standard 2.1mm center negative power supply to run the pedal. The minimum milliamp recommendation is 100ma. If you happen to have any other questions about the Wilson Effects Vintage Mini Wah please feel free to contact me.
