Teese RMC 2 WAH


MILLO

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how this wah sounds like and how it measures to the Fulltone Clyde Deluxe and Crybaby Q5... sumthin-sumthin (forgot model #)?

 

Thanks!

I have not played the Teese, but is work is highly respected and when I finally decided on the Fulltone, it was because I bought a couple of Fulltones at once and it just 'felt'like the thing to do. :freak:

 

In any case, I would certainly check one out with some interest if I saw one somewhere.

Millo!: You know I never lie and once told to you "coincidences doesn´t exists" hahaha...Here in europe is night and I´ve post and you answered while repairing two Wahs at a time!!!. Wahs are the simplest pedals, it´s true all them are made similar (except in chassis-shell and sometimes mechanism but few differences in electronics).Easy to became a cheap cry-baby wah into vox,colorsound,hendrix wah, Q5 or bass-wah etc...Yes I use to do it, mine sounds like 3 other brands. Tell me what you want, schematics are easy to get. Believe me i.e. differences between the cheapest Dunlop with Hendrix version is only one little capacitor (but the price....)

I don't know about the Clyde or the Q5, but I've had an RMC 2 for about 4 years now, and it's by far the best sounding wah I've ever had. My other wah's were regular CryBaby's amd Vox reissue's. The RMC is also built much more sturdy, I had to replace my wah's like once a year.

I'm sure you're right, I have no idea how they work, I just know that I like the sound. :)

Bill also turned me on to the Teese. I've made some inquiries, but so far can't find a place to try a Teese. They have several models, but I don't have a clue where I could go to try them out to see which I'd like. Also, I've made several contacts to dealers that sell Teese Wahs. They seem to sell out so fast, that the dealers don't care to give much info. The best response I got was "keep calling us, and if we have one we'll sell it to you".

 

So much for customer service!!

 

Anyone know how/where to get a Teese??

 

Any suggestions about choosing between the different models they offer?

Teese is still a small builder. He also uses cases built by other people, and apparently he's hit hard whenever there's a shortage in supplies. Plus, I think he's still a one-guy or at least a very-few-guys type of manufacturer, which means LONG WAITLIST. It seems his stuff is hard to come by. I'd like to try also a compressor he's been building for about a year.

 

Fulltone has some peeps building pedals w/ him. I guess he mainly desgins/researches and tries/approves pedals now. Supposedly he plays all of them and inspects their innards to make sure they meet the standards.

 

I'll try to schedule a meeting w/ a guy that has a RMC2 here in Austin to try. I'll let you guys now.

 

By the way, I have a Clyde Deluxe, just wanted to see if anyone had AB'd it w/ a RMC2, since I noticed this guy was selling one on Craig's List. I started this whole thread mainly out of curiosity. If the owner still has it Sunday, I'll go try it.

By the way, I'm pretty sure both Teese and Fulltone have their own inductors.

 

I'm really curious about a "new" Fulltone inductor... I wonder if it's really better or just hype.

For Teese, Fulltone to wind (harder to make or coil pickups) own inductors would be stupid if 3 or 4 type in the market are enough and could be moded. EXAMPLE: take a refrigerator-magnet and put it on the inductor of your wah, turning it there will be a point you will like your tone changes. They work so...

I just ordered one of these;

I'm hoping to have it by Christmas.....we'll see!

 

I'll compare it to my Fulltone Clyde Deluxe, and post the results.

 

About a month or more ago, I posted multiple sound clips of several different wah pedals. I'll do my best to make sound clips of the Clyde Deluxe, and the WMC2 when I'm able.

Teese makes amazing sounding wahs.

 

You can check them out in Rudy's on 48th St in NYC if you ever get the chance.

 

I got the Fulltone primarily because I liked the way it felt under my foot better. For a reference people will get, I always liked the morley wahs better than the cry babys because of the feel under the foot AND the sound. The fulltone feels exactly like what I'd want under my foot. The Fulltone is highly tweakable, Teese has a similarly tweakable wah, and a few different models. One is aimed at the player of humbuckers.
