Wah-W-W-W-Wah, Wah...Wah

Initially I was going to get a Dunlop Cry Baby but I thought I’d read the reviews of some of the other Wah pedals. I settled on the Vox because somebody, right here in fact, said it was, 'Whoah!' They weren’t kidding either. Playing a single palm-muted string and using this pedal gives you an instant 70’s cop movie vibe. Playing funk chords and letting rip on it… yeah, it’s just what I was looking for. The pedal is weighty and solid, and surprisingly shiny. If you don’t weigh much you may have trouble turning it on and off as it takes quite a stomp to click the on/ off switch. This is my first Wah pedal. Previously when I needed a Wah I was using plug-ins in my DAW and using the mouse to manipulate the expression, which couldn’t be done while actually playing the guitar of course; so, you can imagine how awkward, fiddly, and generally unsatisfying that was. I am very happy with this pedal and look forward to producing funky vibes for years to come. I haven’t tried combining it with my death metal distortion pedal yet…

Wah with character!

My first wah was the ubiquitous Dunlop Crybaby... yeah, it went "wah", but it didn't really grab me, ya know? It was just 'meh'. Back to the store it went. Later, I saw a Vox wah and thought I had read something about them(this was years ago when I wore a younger man's clothes ;0p) being used by Hendrix(despite prevalent advertising, the Crybaby didn't exist back then), so I gave it a try, and boy am I glad I did! It didn't just go "wah", it's like it went "whoah!" It wasn't just a foot-controlled tone-sweep, it had 'a voice'... The addition of a power supply jack and a buffer to prevent signal loss have only made a great thing even greater! It is the only wah pedal I use.
Music background: guitarist since 1987

Just what he was lookin for

My son has several pedals this one is his favorite.

Great Wah

It's hard to elaborate here. I've only had one other wah and it's been almost twenty years ago. I do really like how the Vox sounds and reacts. Not much else to compare it to, but I'm really happy to have it in my pedal options chest. Can't stop playing it and will probably over use it and annoy my band mates. I'd say that's a pretty decent endorsement.

Awesome tone

Had tried some cry baby models at my local music store, but just found them to my ears to be devoid of character and tone and just plain lacking in actual "wah" sound. Ordered the vox through Sweetwater and the vox has everything the cry baby is missing. Plus it looks fantastic and has a nice bag to store it in! Don't see how you could go wrong with this one.
