Gear Talk (5): a rare gem

In all of my previous ‘Gear Talk’ blogs, one of the pedals that went unmentioned was this one, the Snarling Dogs ‘Mold Spore’ wah…

For many years, before I started this blog, this beast was my main wah. It’s heavy enough & solid enough to stay put on stage, and the three options for different voicings make this a very versatile effect to have at your feet. On top of that, it also features a Ring Modulator die some psychadellic nosiness. Both effects can be used seperately or together for some pretty crazy sounds.

The company Snarling Dogs closed nearly twenty years ago, so this already unique effect is now something if a rare find. I had it refurbished & cleaned up a year or so ago, and intended to start using it live again. The thing is, I hardly use wah at all now, so this pedal has been sitting in my cupboard unused.

After a lot of thought, I’ve decided to sell it. Sure, I could keep it as a rare collectors-item. However, the (no small) amount of money I could sell it for now would go a long way towards a new guitar – something that I will actually use. And that seems more important to me. My studio and musical career are areas of work, not a museum.

Still, this bad boy will be missed…
