  • I bought this one right after my Jimi Hendrix Wah broke and I really love it. I use it all the time. Even knowing there are a lot better wah's around I still like it as a basic wahwah. You can play things with this from "dark" to real funky.
  • Good Points: Good construction Cool EQ Simple
  • Bad Points: hmm... just a basic wah but that depends on what you're looking for

  • This pedal gets panned a fair bit but i've found that it has it's uses. Sounds nice with a lond delay after with a really stuttery loop being pumped through it.
  • Good Points: - Fairly cheap. - Easy to find. - Solid build. - Tone is pretty warm (which to me is ok). - Makes my other stuff feed back loads.
  • Bad Points: - Tiny range compared with other wah peadls. - Only one operating mode meaning tweakability potential is more or less zilch. - Sometimes you really hav to press down hard to switch it on.

  • Dull! Way too subtle for my taste.It's sweep is not broad enough so anything other than 'tame' is not gonna happen.Eric Clapton uses one.Well that explains that.
  • Good Points: Sturdy consruction.

  • As happy as I was to get this for xmas, its pretty dull. It can do very little for your noise other than, well a wah wah sound! This can be good for getting quick and easy low end to piercing high whips of noise if you will but I have only used it in one track and doubt I will again. Sounds nice with the right ambience if controlled SLOOOOOOW!!!
  • Good Points: Wah Wah is sex music Hardcore construction Loud as fuck when left in a certain position, however...
  • Bad Points: ...Pretty much all other positions are too quiet Way too hard to turn on and off unless you are standing over it No LED Wah in general leaves you pretty limited.

  • Beh, this is the least used wah pedal in my collection. The range isn't broad enough for my tastes. The Snarling Dog Mold Spore wah or even the DOD Wah/Volume FX17 is way better than this one. I attempted to use it in my setting but I was just not happy with the results. Now it sits on my shelf collecting dust.
  • Good Points: It's durable, not as heavy as the Mold Spore.
  • Bad Points: The review speaks for itself.

  • Maybe it's just me, but it seems like the sweep range on this is all wrong. way too abrupt for me. Tried to use it for noise (or anything, really...) and the only reason I havent gotten rid of it is my own laziness.
  • Good Points: Cheap, heavily built, cat sounds? batteries last.
  • Bad Points: i guess the batteries would last, i never use them. You can make a pedal out of whatever you like, but if the switch feels janky, it still feels breakable to me. Switch craps out all the time, getting stuck "half-on" and then not coming un-stuck. lame filter sweep. doesnt get low enough, abrupt sweep, screechy, worthless as far as I can tell.

  • It's a wah-wah pedal. There's not too much more you can say! Seems pretty well-made to me. Limited use in noise, but quite effective for tonal shifts. Can change your sounds from groaning to screaming with a quick hit if your other stuff's set up right. Wouldn't be worth buying one just for noise unless it was very cheap. But still worth plugging in a couple of patch leads.
  • Good Points: Can hit it without really looking cos it's big - no need to fiddle for a little eq dial.
  • Bad Points: It's only a wah-wah pedal. Swap it with a guitarist mate for something more interesting.

  • As said in above reviews, this it pretty much your standard wah-pedal. Cheap, robust and does what it's supposed to. Good for the basic tone-control. But more creative use I've found is to plug it "the wrong way", using input as output and vice-versa. This results (at least when used with guitar) in freaky oscillation sounds. You can use the pedal to control the pitch. You can produce some nice squeaks using this technique.
  • Good Points: Cheap, Does what it's supposed to
  • Bad Points: No of the best possible sound quality

  • pretty much your standard no frills wah device. the range on it isnt all that impresive and one would be way better off with a dod envelope filter, or similar device, since they tend to go for better prices and get alot more bass heavy...
  • Good Points: sturdy and reliable, and fun to push the rocker up and down...
  • Bad Points: not very impressive range...

  • classic - there's nothing quite like playing a circuit-bent speak and spell with distortion and pitch mods through one of these and the right kind of additional distortion and delay effects. maybe a speak and read... these aren't for everyone, but if used properly they can kill.
  • Good Points: bulletproof construction, easily modded - it's like an old friend.
  • Bad Points: replacing the battery is a pain in the ass, not enough of a range without modding.

  • I've had this forever. Sometimes useful, especially when using a mic or contact mic and leaving it set in a certain position. Very typical wah, but very inexpensive and durable. Mine isn't sheilded very well, and combining it with spiraled cables on the in and out have often let to receiving some really weird unintended interference while recording.

  • classic wah sound, right. aren't there other pedals out there that do this and more? yuuuup. so why bother with this? because they're easy to find and usually fairly cheap. sounds alright but the effect only targets a narrow freq range and has a limited sweep on it. i'd recomend seeking out a different wah pedal unless you dig up one of these somewhere at a reasonable price.
  • Good Points: i'm told it is good for guitar. i don't have a guitar. does add a bit of controllable waaah to my noise buy i'd never buy one.
  • Bad Points: boring wah sound, not enough range in the frequency response or overall wah effect. narrow sweep.

  • A nice classic setup for the classic frequency pedal. Easy to rock back and forth (add a little grease every now and again!), so simple to use, you should die if you can't use this thing. I really mean that. You should die.
  • Good Points: Classic sound capured here. No more, no less. Easy, easy, easy to use. One click turns it off. Great sound on regular guitar (That is to say not noise guitar) such as blues and rock, just okay on noise. Real good to batteries, too. I've changed em' 4 times in 3 years.
  • Bad Points: Can be hard to click off once the felt pad over the switch is broken in...If your signal is to high, this pedal won't make a dent on your sound in any way. Just not enough frequency control. Really, its not even enough for my tastes on regular guitar work. Guitarists already know about this pedal so i need not bother to tell them. However, a noisician would be better off to use another wah-wah. I guess its okay if you can find it for $25!

  • Like the description says, gets the classic wah sound. Thats about it though. Not enough frequency range is covered for my liking and I'm sure there would be better wah pedals for the noise enthusiasts.
  • Good Points: Classic wah sound. The price. Battery or mains powered. Fairly strong.
  • Bad Points: Limited sound capabilities. They ALWAYS get a scratchy pot even if they don't get used.
