Friedman Gold 72 Wah Pedal

$169.00

Made in the USA

The Friedman No More Tears Gold-72 Wah delivers the classic wah tones you crave with the ability to fine-tune the pedal’s feel and character tone. The first thing you’ll notice when stomping down on the Gold-72 Wah is the convenient LED, which is perfectly placed to let you know when it is engaged. Another player-friendly feature is the inconspicuous 3-way sweep switch hidden under the pedal’s treadle. With a simple flip of the toggle, you’re able to find the sweep that feels ideal for your style. Tone isn’t the only feature that is adjustable. The Gold-72 has a convenient and easily accessible Allen screw adjustment under the heel of the pedal that allows the tension of the footboard to be dialed in to each players taste. Add in switchable buffered or true bypass operation, and the Friedman No More Tears Gold-72 Wah pedal just might send those other babies away crying.

Vintage-voiced Wah Tones
At the heart of the Friedman, Gold-72 Wah is a classic-sounding, almost vocal effect, that will bring you back to the great rock and funk tones through the decades that we’ve grown to love. Whether wailing through two humbuckers and a full stack, bringing the clean rhythmic sweeps of the ‘70s, or finding a unique voice all your own, you’ll find the Gold-72 Wah feeling right at home on your board.
● Classic voice that works equally well with clean and driven tones
● Familiar form factor that feels great under your foot
● Great with single-coil and humbucker-loaded guitars

Customizable Performance
Where the Gold-72 Wah really stands apart from the pack is its ability to conform to your preferences. Want a wider sweep? Hit the 3-way Sweep Switch. Want a tighter feel? Give the Allen screw tension adjustment a quick turn. And the internal buffered/true bypass switch means your wah will sound great wherever you place it in the chain.

ROOTS IN DETROIT

David Friedman was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.  On a recent trip home, the Friedman crew shot some footage, we’d like to share with you. Detroit is a city with a rich history, not exclusively, but especially, when it comes to music. So it’s no surprise that while growing up there David Friedman was inspired by Detroit’s heady music scene and it’s legacy.  Detroit has been the seat for so many iconic musicians that represent a wealth of genres, from the soul and R&B artists that gave it the nickname Motown, to blues, punk, hip hop, pop, rock and it’s even been cited as the birthplace of (believe it or not) electronic dance music. I n fact, it’s impossible to talk about American music history without prominently featuring Detroit.  In recent decades Detroit has fallen into decay and disrepair.  But the heart and soul of Detroit are it’s people, who are unwavering in the task of rebuilding it, and who are certain that it can return to the greatness for which it was once known.  This video includes shots of downtown Detroit, including the community-based art installation the Heidelberg project and , Motor City Guitar in Waterford, MI, which is owned by Dave’s childhood best friend. Beyond the images of deteriorating and forgotten places, you can see the gleam of hope, nowhere does it shine brighter than in Detroit.  After all it’s the place whose motto, written in 1805, is: “Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus”.
