Queen Triggered Wah with Original Box Model Wah-Wah Pedal Effect, made by Electro-Harmonix (1977), made in New York City, black crinkle enamel finish.

The Electro Harmonix Queen Wah is a rare and quite unusual effect. Made by the infamous and extremely creative NYC-based company in the '70s and '80s, this pedal was one of their many unique contributions to the world of effects. Rare and sought-after by EHX collectors and afficionados, the Queen Wah pedal serves a dual function; one as a traditional foot-controlled effect, the other as a auto-wah/envelope filter. The pedal is armed with a myriad of controls, the effect can range from traditional wah-sounds to spacey filter effects. It features a selectable low-pass or band-pass filter, adjustable Q and a switch and threshold control for the triggered effect mode. Additionally, the effect has a fixed bass and adjustable treble boost as well as preset low- and high-range switches.
Length is 11 1/2 in. (29.2 cm.), 4 5/8 in. (11.7 cm.) width, and 3 in. (7.6 cm.) high.

Cosmetically, this pedal has seen some use but is overall in very well-preserved condition for its age. The black crinkle enamel-finished cast body shows some minor wear, mostly around the edges and corners. The rubber foot-pad shows little wear overall and all the original knobs and switches are present.

This pedal has a factory oddity; the placement of the AC-input and the treble boost control are reversed from any other example we have seen. Upon close inspection, this had be a factory implementation as the holes are different sizes and solder joints appear undisturbed. The labels were cut up and re-arranged to indicate the proper controls, almost certainly at the factory as well. Sadly, the label for the treble boost control is no longer present.

Electrically, the pedal appears to be fully original with no apparent modifications. The pots bear the codes 137-748, 137-746 and 137-749, dating them to late '77. It has otherwise received our typical servicing, including cleaning of all pots and jacks and tested. The pedal comes in the original box, which has seen its fair share of wear but is a rarity in and of itself! A fresh Battery is included; an AC/DC power supply is NOT included. Excellent - Condition.
