Mike teamed up with Rocktron and produced a wah pedal like no other. Mike’s expressive use of the wah effect required a pedal that not only could take the usage, but has a very musical tone.
Working with Mike, Rocktron developed three custom voiced settings. Mike mainly uses the CLASSIC setting which is a more “vintage” wah effect. The NORMAL setting provides a more “current” frequency sweep. The BASS setting is ideal for Bass Wah and 7-string guitars, but also provides and new dimension to the standard wah effect on regular 6-string guitars.
Mike and Rocktron then combined these settings with an extra control called “MIX”. This “MIX” control allows you to mix in any amount of wah effect to the direct signal. In the “CLEAN” setting only a very small amount of wah effect is added into the direct signal. In the “WAH” setting it is full-on wah. Back this setting off to half way and you get half wah, half direct signal. This feature is specifically designed for a more expressive use of the wah other than just “wah-wahing”. It will add higher frequencies and lower frequencies to your overall tone and allow you to use it rhythmically as well rather than just for solo use.
Like other Rocktron Wah pedals, the Mike Orlando Signature wah is stage ready. The easy access battery compartment will make changing batteries during a gig a breeze. We have incorporated an adjustable rocker tension screw that will allow you to adjust the pedal action for a lighter or heavier “touch”.
