The First Prototype of a Chuck Taylor with a Built-in Wah Pedal
Today, Converse Inc. announces the global launch of the latest Chuck Hack project – the Converse Chuck Taylor All Wah.
The All Wah was born three years ago during Converse’s Chuck Hack sessions, where Critical Mass presented the first prototype of a Chuck Taylor with a built in Wah pedal.
Fast-forward to 2016 with an innovative design and development from leading fashion and wearable technology brand CuteCircuit, the All Wah brings a new level of freedom to guitar playing, with the sole of the All Star transforming foot movement into Wah modulation, using cutting-edge micro-sensor technology.
Simply move your foot as you would, using a traditional Wah pedal and the sneaker does the rest, communicating wirelessly via Bluetooth to the Wah Box for the Wah effect. The All Wah can be used in a classic stage set-up with an Amp or connected to a MAC or iPhone.
