I like that the PCB clearly retains the "Dunlop" label on it .

Not sure...Budda probably has a deal to buy the parts...I just thought the "Dunlop" on the PCB was funny. :)

thanks for the showing the "dunlop" printed on the buddah ;)
is the schematic known or traced out yet? I can't remember..

I believe those wah shells are made by dunlop, or at the very least they have them made somewhere. With the way a lot of these larger companies work they very well may actually make the wah for them.

Well, the circuit board is DEFINITELY made by Dunlop ! :D

As for the shell, parts, etc...hmmm ?

I would like values for this one if you have them.

Thanks very much.

The Budda wah is manufactured by Dunlop for, and to the "specs" of, Budda.

FYI - The N30 material used in the pictured inductor is reportedly the material used in the original Italian Fasel inductors. I cannot verify this although the info did come from a knowledgable source. All of the old Fasels I've looked at have had unmarked ferrite material, were not mine, and I could not have the material analyzed for verification. I didn't have an o-scope at that time and so I could not chart any properties of the Fasel.

What I love about the Budda is that it is excellent acroos the board style-wise.
Some other wahs are better than the Budda in certain styles, I loved my Picture wah and love all my Colorsounds but and they excel in certain areas whilst the Budda is such a great all-rounder.

from the picture i could read those values for the resistors:

to me it looks like a normale wahwah with a buffer in front of it, no special values. btw I hope i got'em right, some values look strange to me.

Yeah, it does look pretty standard. The only non-standard thing I see is the 390R on Q1s emitter. It'd be nice to know what the feedback cap is, and what the two caps around the pot are.

Thanks!

:oops: my bad, i didn't record down values when this came in for repairs.
Yes, i vaguely remember it having a much wider and smother sweep compared to a Dunlop wah.

My guess the 390R increases gain on Q1 thus giving it some muscle ....
I hope someone else who owns one will enlighten us :D

The 390R will increase the bass of the circuit compared to a normal crybaby.

The same 390 ohm resistor can be found on most of the Crybaby models. The Vox V847 uses a 510 there.

The caps are the standard 10n/220n.

Notice the zero ohm resistor at R17 in your Budda pic?
This is actually better off as a jumper.

Oh my bad....one board is green and the other one is brown.
Also one says "Vox" and the other doesn't.

Man, at first I thought they were the same pedal.
