What Is The Mission Engineering ReWah Pro For Bass?
The Rewah Pro Bass pedal is the next generation all analog wah pedal for electric bass. The bass version is built around the same custom inductor as the Rewah Pro for guitar, but with specially modified circuit design to support the bass frequency range. The superior frequency response of Mission's extra large Rewah inductor makes an excellent basis for an outstanding bass wah sound. Rewah Pro Bass features the same audiophile quality dual transistor, JFET output buffer, and hardwired True Bypass for extremely low noise, as well as Rewah's unique switchable tone modifications.
The Rewah Pro Bass is finished in a high quality and super resilient flat black that will still look good after many years on the road.
Why Is It Switchable?
Since the invention of the Wah pedal the argument has raged over the best way to wire the pedal to obtain a great wah effect along with clean sound. Rather than pick one solution, Mission Engineering allows you to make that choice, or change your mind, with a simple change of a switch. In fact, you can choose between one of four separate wiring solutions. These solutions can be used individually or in sequence with one another, giving you even more control to define your unique wah tone.
What Do The Switches Do?
Sw1. Increases gain to add slight overdrive to the output transistor.
Sw2. Slightly lowers the filters center frequency and reduces the bandwidth for a more nasal wah sound.
Sw3. Significantly lowers the center of the filter band for a bass heavy wah.
Switches can be used individually or in conjunction for a total of sixteen different tonal variations.
Why do they call this a "Pro" pedal?
The Mission Engineering Bass ReWah Pro is built around a custom designed inductor, created from the ground up to Mission Engineering's high-quality standards. This inductor is similar to what you might find in high-end audio amplifiers and has similar characteristics to the well respected vintage 'halo' inductors used in early wah pedals. Every inductor is assembled and tested by hand in the USA to ensure consistent high performance.
What Connections Are On The Pedal?
The ReWah Pro Bass provides one 1/4" mono (TS) IN for your instrument, one 1/4" mono OUT for your amplifier or other effect box, and a power input.
What Are The Power Requirements?
The ReWah Pro Bass can be powered either by an external power supply or an internal 9v battery (not included). The power supply should be 9v DC center pin negative with a 2.1mm connector (such as the Mission PS1-9VDC). For daisy-chain powering on a pedalboard Mission recommends the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+ and the Dunlop DC-Brick Multi-Power Supply.
What Is Included In The Box?
You get the following:
The Mission ReWah Bass pedal
One hex wrench
Two extra IN/OUT retention nuts
One stick-on pad
One nylon washer
Why Do I Need The Included Nuts, Washer, and Sticky Pad?
The included washer kit (retention nuts and nylon washer) is used for adjusting the height of the toe switch. Some folks like to turn the wah on with a light touch, others like to really push down on the switch before it engages. The nuts and washer allow for this custom fitting.
The sticky pad goes on the underside of the rocker where it contacts with the switch. There is one pre-installed in the factory. The one in the bag is a spare.
