The Kluson Super
Kluson has reintroduced the Super model as
used on Les Paul Customs, the ES-350, Martin
guitars and many others. Often referred to as
the Waffleback or Radiatorback, these tuning
machines feature a 1/4” tuner post, die cast
housing, improved 15: 1 ratio, steel worm gear
and brass ring gear. The tuning machines and
exact replacement bushings are designed to
replace original tuners without modifications.
The Supers come complete with peghead
bushings and mounting screws, and are available in nickel and gold plating, with a wide
variety of vintage button styles.
Starting at $120

The Wah from BBE
Based on a 1967 Class A circuit design, The
Wah features a “halo” inductor to recreate
sounds made famous by Clapton and Hendrix.
The halo inductor is integral to The Wah’s
unique vocal qualitites, the same sounds
found in high-priced vintage wahs. A custom
potentiometer provides a natural sweep response
while a unique Harmony control allows guitarists to
tailor the wah sound to their individual tastes. The
Wah also features an LED indicator, hardwire bypass,
hand-wired components and a five-year guarantee.
