The latest evolution of the Roger Mayer Wah has an improved continuous WAH SWEEP control providing a greater range of wah tones that range from Band of Gypsys to Funk. The original guitar sound can also be blended back into the mix to producing wah tones from subtle to full on.

The DUAL MODES of BYPASS provide options of:


Technical Features :

WAH SWEEP: Continuous control of wah sweep frequency. Discover the wah tones I developed for Jimi and used by him at the "Band of Gypsys" concert plus the Funk tones used on many records.

WAH BLEND: This allows blending of the guitar back into the wah sound to allow full control of wah depth and Q.

VARIABLE VOLUME RANGE: Remove the bottom plate to access this multi-turn control. This control allows precise adjustment of the reduction in volume level desired when the pedal is in the up position. The volume range has purposely been limited to a maximum of -30dB so that during performance the pedal has a usable range and is not just a volume switch. An excessively large range of control is not that easy to control with your foot when standing up and in fact when using the pedal in a live situation a range of 20dB is popular and is easily controlable from your foot. This corresponds to turning the guitar volume from 10 to 5. The fact that the range can be limited and set now enables the Bel Air to accurately control amp or pedal distortion.

DUAL MODE BYPASS: There are two modes that can be selected via by moving a jumper on the card.

  • Mode 1 = AUTO - Switch between WAH and VOLUME.
  • Mode 2 = WAH - Switch between WAH and BYPASS.


BYPASS SWITCH FEEL The pressure required on the foot plate in the down position to actuate the changeover or bypass can be set electronically on the PC Card.

PEDAL FEEL: A vari-friction nylon bearing adjusts the pedal feel and because the top plate is fully balanced it will remain in position even in the lightest friction settings.

Ergonomic Player Design: It is 40% lower than the Cry Baby Style of pedals and also has 28% more angular travel. The slightly downwards position of the top plate results in a much more relaxed and balanced operating posture and also allows the player to step off the pedal in a forward motion whilst simultaneously operating the bypass function. The silky smooth feel and low profile all improve the overall physical performance by using a foot control that is natural and easy to use. The cables plug into the side pods and are swept back out of harms way. The front control knobs are also recessed into the side pods to provide protection.

No potentiometer gears or switch: Advanced instrumentation techniques measure the top plate angle continuously to provide data that controls the wah, volume and bypass switch functions. This solid-state approach results in reliable silent operation with no parts to wear out and replace.

Balanced Carbon Composite Top Plate: This enables the position to be held at any friction level.

Pedal Status: LED indicator on the side pod.

Powering: Internal 9V battery or from an AC Adapter (not supplied).

"One look at the Bel Air Low Line will visually illustrate to you that this foot controller is unlike any other products that are on the market. Once you have stepped onto one and experienced the ease of use it will be difficult to go back to what you may be using now.

We have started with a clean sheet of paper and addressed each of the shortcomings that previous designs have. It is truly a revolutionary design right from its looks to the many technical and ergonomic innovations it brings to the player. The low profile and silky smooth action allows players to achieve a more natural way to express themselves as the connection between foot and mind become virtually transparent. The awkward and stiff mechanical manipulations of a gear train and switch are removed in our new desigb evolution that replaces the established 40-year-old design. Say goodbye to the balancing act required to use the old fashioned style pedals.

I have a long history of successfully creating wah electronics that have produced some of the most notable wah sounds ever recorded. This past history and heritage has been my inspiration to move the goal posts forwards and produce this state of the art design which incorporates the latest cutting edge technology and materials." - Roger Mayer

No hassle returns

We know how much of a gamble it can be purchasing a guitar online without trying it first. That’s why if you receive your order and it’s not as you expected, let us know within 14 working days and we will have it collected by UPS.

Once back we will refund (minus restocking charge) or exchange the item if preferred. Online purchases only.

Fully setup & triple checked quality control

We have in-house guitar technicians here at Guitar Village, so that means all guitars in stock are constantly checked and maintained for optimum playability.

As soon as a guitar is sold it will be fully set-up to ensure it is playing great right out of the box. It will then go through an inspection checklist and is checked again for quality and playability by two more members of staff. Let us know any preferred setup requirements and we will be happy to oblige!


All new products come with a 12 month warranty as standard. Some products will come with an extended manufacturer’s warranty - these will be included with the product and will usually need to be activated after purchase via the manufacturer’s website. Ex Demo products will also come with a 12 month warranty. Pre-owned products come with a 3 month warranty.

Real time stock levels

Fed up with websites advertising guitar that they don’t actually have? So are we! The Guitar Village website is updated in real-time, so that means the second we sell out of a guitar the website will say ‘out of stock’. If it says ‘In Stock’, rest assured we do actually have it in stock and ready to go!

Actual image photography

We don’t want you to have any nasty surprises when you receive a guitar from us so we do our own photography in-house.

Any high-end guitar with a figured finish or unique features will have its own images. If you see “✓ Actual product in photograph(s)” next to the product listing, this will be the actual item you receive.

Any guitar priced under £2000 with an opaque/block finish, or lightly figured woods may have an example image of the guitar.

Click & collect

Don’t fancy the painful wait at home for the courier to deliver your new toy?

If you’re not a million miles away not come in and collect it from the shop? All you need to do it select “Collect from store” at the checkout, pay in full online then pop in with proof of purchase, along with some photo ID* and you can take it away right then and there!

*Photo ID must be a valid passport or driving license.

Ex Demo/New Old Stock Products

Occasionally we list items as ‘Ex Demo’ or ‘New Old Stock’. These are new but may not necessarily be in perfect condition and could have had minor repairs, marks, scratches and/or other defects.

These will be fully described and discounted accordingly.

At Guitar Village we're committed to offering you the very best shopping experience possible. We strive to provide you with an unmatched choice of guitars as well as our award-winning friendly customer service, combined with the best prices in the UK. Occasionally the odd price pops up a little cheaper somewhere else. We don't want any of our customers to ever have to decide between our high level of service and a lower price, so we will always endeavour to price match our UK competitors.

To qualify for a price match it must be:

  • From an official authorised dealer,
  • Identical to the product we are selling (model, colour, specs),
  • In stock and ready to ship,
  • Clearly advertised at the cheaper price on their website (not a price quoted over the phone),
  • An outright purchase price, not including finance, part exchange or any other offer.

Usually these cheaper prices are offered by online-only warehouse retailers with little overheads and a "stack 'em high, sell 'em cheap" philosophy, sacrificing the customer service that's essential to back-up any purchase.

When you buy from Guitar Village you can rest assured that your item will be:

  • In stock if the website says it is,
  • Guitars fully setup to any given requirements by one of our full time in-house guitar techs prior to dispatch,
  • Triple checked through our extensive quality control,
  • Safely and securely packaged, then dispatched using UPS - fully tracked and insured,
  • Full after-sales customer support.
