        Yup, I found that. And there is one on ebay at the moment, but I cant seem to be able to send them a message for some reason.

        Looks like it might be an easy one to clone though?

              I couldn't clone it, dunno about that inductor and those tropical fish caps and also mechanically, it has the "elbow" mechanism just like the old Colorsound wahs, this will get you the longer throw

                    That's probably the inductor...while they typically ran at 500-600mH, the WAY they are wound can be very different, and generate tonal varience.

                      Out of curiosity once I compared the Colorsound and CryBaby style mechanisms and found that while the Colorsound treadle does have a wider degree of travel, it doesn't actually turn the pot through a greater degree of rotation than the Crybaby style rack and gear mechanism.
