JackI bought the Vox Wah pedal new. Over all I like the pedal. Only problem is you don't know if it's on or not. And second it takes a ten pound weight to turn it on. I have to pound on it with everything I got just to engage it. I jerry rigged it with a small bolt under the pedal part to close the space on the button. This allowed me to be able to push a lot less to turn it on and off. Over all happy with it, but could use some improvements. If I knew before hand of the problems, I wouldn't have bought it...!

Great Wah Pedal!This pedal is amazing! The sounds it produces especially for leads is amazing! The only two problems I have with it is that it is very hard to turn on and off and when it reached high notes its a little piercing but overall I love this pedal!

Good Starter WahThis was my first pedal and after owing it for two years I can say I like my vox wah. Its highs are a bit piercing but it still offers a good range of tones. My vox had a sweet spot where the tone would change dramatically in just a short space. I liked utilizing it in solos and fast paced rhythms. After a few months of owning it, I noticed that my wah started produce a loud noise coming from the amp when it was turned on. Also when I would sweep it, it made an annoying sound similar to a squishing or scrunching noise. I don't know if something got fried in the circuit or the pedal just went south. I haven't bothered to have it serviced because, being a high school student, I have no money. In retrospect, I wished I would have saved my hard earned money for a better, more expensive pedal that is not so piercing. After owning it for two years and though I like the pedal, I feel I can say that I want to move onto a nicer wah pedal maybe a Budda Wah which from videos I have listened to, isn't piercing, but smooth.

My First WahThis is my first wah and there are a couple things I don't like about it. One is that I wish there was a led light indicating when the wah is turned on. Sometimes is it hard to tell if you have it turned off or not. 2nd is that when I have my Boss DS-1 Distortion turned on with it, it doesn't sound as punk as I was hoping for. Granted I have only had it a couple days now but hopefully I can figure out how to get that "punk" sound that I like. It is a very fun pedal to use though. Don't decide to not buy this pedal because I said it doesn't sound the greatest with distortion though cuz it doesn't sound that bad, i'm just really really picky on my sound.
