Dexter Mods Red or Yellow Fasal Upgrade

Red & Yellow Fasal Inductors

Red & Yellow Fasal Inductors

The fasal inductor is an important element of the wah sound, but it can be over hyped in my opinion. People talk about the mass produced fasals that are stock on Vox 847s and Dunlop GCB-95s being out of spec and unreliable. I really don’t notice it and I handle a lot of wahs.  The fasal adds a more subtle voicing to the wah and some people really go for the different flavour that another fasal can offer. A big seller is the Whipple Inductor which can be sourced on Ebay quite easily.

I keep a small stock of Red and Yellow fasals for my mods and can pass these on if you want to experiment.

I also do the Dexter Mods ‘Wild Wah’ mod which is my take on the Zakk Wylde ZW-1 wah, which is in fact my wah of choice these days after it booted my DOD FX17 off my pedal board after 2o years.

The ZW-1 is essentially a GCB-95 with a red fasal, the same sweep cap as the JH-1 and a couple of resistor changes. Plus all the resistors are 1% tolerance so the circuit follows the original spec more accurately.

Dexter Mods Voodoo Chile Wah Mod: “Just a bit of unsolicited advertising…(Send no money now..)..If you already own a standard GCB-95 get this man to modify it now…If you don’t own one yet, buy this pedal. These pedals in standard form are great, but simply way too bright at the high end. These mods put it in a totally different class. It’s the smoothest, funkiest wah-wah I’ve used to-date. Cheers for a great product!”

Dave was great, did a fantastic job and went out of his way to get the wah back to me by bringing it up to Auckland. Pure legend. This man knows his stuff and gets a result that’ll satisfy the fussiest real-world tone snob. Massive appreciation! Cheers Dave. Si Moore

Superb trader, repaired my wah to exceptional quality. Also, I’d paid for mods which couldn’t be done on my pedal, so was contacted and Dave arranged to give back the money not required for the job. Awesome bloke, great quality workmanship, and would trust without a doubt again and again!

Money well spent, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, as soon as I plugged my wah wah in when I got it, I noticed the immense difference immediately, don’t hesitate to get one of these mods, you wont be disappointed. Excellent service, fast, and friendly! A+++
