A Variety of Wah Tones in a Single Stomp

The Electro-Harmonix Cock Fight cocked talking wah pedal lets you easily achieve cocked wah, synth tones, and everything in between. A step of the footswitch brings in a variable-frequency cocked wah sound, while plugging in an outboard expression pedal offers you standard foot control of the tones. And the fuzz side of the pedal, which can be placed before or after the wah, can go from sounding full to a dying-battery sputtering tone with the twist of a knob. The Electro-Harmonix Cock Fight cocked talking wah effects pedal adds new wah-based colors to your rig.

Electro-Harmonix Cock Fight Cocked Talking Wah Effects Pedal at a Glance:
  • Classic cocked wah tones and more
  • Expression pedal control
  • Powerful fuzz
Classic cocked wah tones and more

The sound of a wah pedal parked halfway through its throw has become a standard in rock guitar playing. The Cock Fight's Frequency knob gives you this sound with control over the center part of your cocked wah tone. Throw the switch to Talk and the wah takes on a human vocal quality. The Bottom control adds or removes low frequencies from the sweep of the wah. And a mini toggle switch places the onboard fuzz before or after the wah for classic or more experimental sounds.

Expression pedal control

Plugging an optional expression pedal into your Electro-Harmonix Cock Fight pedal allows you to control the wah tones in the standard wah pedal method. The Frequency and Bottom controls still have the same effect on your tone, offering you the ability to tweak your wah's performance to your liking. This method is especially effective with the Talk setting, delivering a completely different frequency sweep than wah. And by placing the fuzz after the wah, you can get huge synthesizer-style sweeps and oscillations.

Powerful fuzz

The Cock Fight's onboard fuzz is as powerful as the wah section. Controls for Drive and Tone determine the overall sound of the fuzz, while the Bias knob can dial back the voltage to the fuzz, simulating a dying battery for the sputtering, spitting sounds that are a favorite around Sweetwater. All the way up, the Bias control allows the fuzz to exude a full, dynamic, and throaty tone that can be useful in a wide variety of genres.

birds of a feather.....

this is my 12th electro-harmonix buy. their imagination over the decades is still as fresh as ever. for this micro-package a lot of sonic bang for the buck. nice tones from my '72 bassman...but it really shines in the effx loop of my marshall vintage modern. as the instruction manual states, you do get a very Jimi vibe on the pre-wah setting--from my inexpensive SX 1/2 size strat to my '77 fender. technology is just crammed up the yazoo in this metal nest. all controls have massive effect--including the bottom adj for enriching the low end. i have to smile at the inventive nature of the bias control that allows full susstain of fuzz to the dying spit-spat coughing battery emulation. while an expression pedal is really needed to take full advantage[my thanks to sales engineer Dan Overstreet for guiding me to the moog pedal recently]....my guess for ehx not including one--those dealing with limited pedal space. also...gracious of ehx to recommend that moog pedal and other brands. kind of like macy sending customers to gimbels in miracle on 34th street. also cool of ehx to specify alkaline battery should you choose that root--quite often they mention carbon zinc. its a moot point since you have the tremendous sonic control w/ the bias knob. be cognizant the tunes demoed in the video use multi-tracking...that being said its up to the user to engage equal inventiveness. as powerful a pedal as this is---it doesn't forsake nuance. i've learned that already in the couple of days i've lived with it. and....the ehx humor is there- a la the red LED in the rooster's eye. flying the friendly skies of fuzz & winging the wah with this one....no turkey here !

EH CF Cocked Talking Wah

Great pedal ! There are so many tones to be found. An expression pedal ( I use a Moog) makes this one of the best wahs I've used. Tip 'o the hat to my sales tech, James Masterson. He does a great job !

Winner By Knock out

What can I say? I have a loaded pedal board that has been gathering dust since I bought this. Along with the terrific cry and talk modes, this box has a really excellent fuzz. The inclusion of the pre-post switch for the fuzz and the bottom and bias control make this pedal beyond versatile!

Whatever you do, DON'T buy this!

You know, I don't really want to give this a positive, glowing review, because this thing sounds so good, I want to be the only one who has one. Where to start? Firstly, this pedal is designed to mimic the effect of having a wah pedal "Cocked", or left in one position while on. I will say that the Electro-Harmonix demo video does not do a great job of showing the pedal being used without an expression pedal. Putting all of that aside, get an expression pedal, it's worth it. I got the Moog pedal that is frequently offered alongside this, and it works great. With the Exp. pedal, this becomes a more traditional wah, although it is a little bit weak of a wah when the fuzz is off. Not to worry, you WILL NEVER WANT TO TURN THE FUZZ OFF. It goes from a good crunch to a solid wall of fuzzy sound. But when you add it PRE wah (oh, yeah, did I forget to mention you can put the fuzz before or AFTER the wah?) you get a great, synth-like sound that is hugely expressive. when you change wah modes (TWO WAH MODES!?!) from crying way to talking wah it adds a whole other dimension of wild sounds. Holy Crap, this is amazing! Ok, ok, one last (two last) thing(s) there are two little knobs: one adds tons of bass back into your signal that is usually stripped out with a wah, and the other is a "Bias" control that simulates a dying battery in the fuzz, and it gives a great lo-fi edge to the sound. The C0ck Fight is really, honestly like getting several pedals at once. I've had this for about two weeks now, and I haven't even touched bottom in terms of finding new sounds...WOW.

Cool Pedal!

If you're bored with your tone, it's time to spice it. This pedal has great quality and it's great bang for the buck. Look no further, this thing rocks! Thanks to Ted and all the sweetwater team.
