One of the coolest pedals ever made is the Bigsby Volume/Tone:

Heavy.... undestroyable... you can even use it as a weapon when a bootweaker should try to steal your intelectual property.

What can´t be seen on the photos is that you cannot only move the pedal up and down, you can also move it left and right.... Think about putting a Wah-electronic inside.... plus an additional panorama-electronics (left/right).... Hey.... THIS wil be footwork, Jimiboy will look like a nobody beside you....

DON`T waste your money for overprized bootweak-pedals... Buy something reliable to make your unique panorama-wah-pedal... NOW:

There´s a sucker born every minute - and too many of them end up in the bootweak pedal biz.

Ok, here we go for another guts:
Here you can see, how the top of the pedal can be moved to change the tone:

and here is another inside view:

sadly the pot-values can´t be seen.

What is the value of the tone-pot and the capacitor beside it ?
