The RMC2 starts with the same primary tuning as the RMC1. Instead of a volume boost like the RMC1, the RMC2 has a side mounted pot for control of volume, from dead quiet all the way to a slightly boosted signal. The second case mounted control on the RMC2 is for control of the Q, or sharpness of the wah's attack. This control goes from the "standard" smooth contour all the way to an ultra-sharp contour. The third control is a 5-position rotary switch to select the sweep range. The actual sweeps range from 2/3 of "normal" sweep range all the way to 1 1/2 times "normal" sweep range. Yes, "normal" is in the middle. The sweeps for the RMC2 are, from top to bottom:
• J. Mascis [the RMC2 is the production version of a wah I built for J]
• RMC3 "Factory Standard" sweep
• "Normal" US wahs
• Italian wahs
The RMC2 features true-bypass switching and AC adapter jack. Of course, just like all our RMC wahs, the RMC2 is hand-built in the U.S. by Geoffrey Teese and features our limited FIVE-YEAR warranty.
