The Hendrix Signature model is probably what you want.
Breaking stereotypes by playing indie on a metal guitar.

Current Gear
- Epiphone Les Paul Standard (Plus Top)
- Crappy Strat Copy (Redecorated, looks snazzy)
- Ibanez Acoustic/Electric Guitar
- Ibanez RG1570 Mirage Blue
- Peavey Vypyr 30 Watt

Jimi never even used Dunlop, so I don't see why you'd recommend it.

TS, just get a normal Vox. They were used in the 60s and it's the actual wah Hendrix used. Not to mention a number of other famous musicians used Vox's (Clapton comes to mind)

http://www.uberproaudio.com/content/view/202/38/ according to this a cry baby or the vox wah pedal is what you are after


The Vox wah is the original Crybaby. Dunlop didn't make Wah pedals around the time of Hendrix or Clapton or any of them. Even if they did, Hendrix and Clapton stuck to Vox's. Even I have found Vox's to sound clearer and smoother than a Dunlop.

Does anyone know how much the signature Hendrix is


Around $120~$140.

Or you can just buy a standard Vox and have the exact wah pedal Hendrix infact used.

I would recommend Digitech's Jimi Hendrix Experience Signature Pedal.

If you want to replicate his tone for that, that's probably the best you're getting.

Not only is it useful for getting his signature tone, but you can also dial in your own specific tone you're looking for. Great piece of equipment!

The songs they took the preset tones from are: Purple Haze, Wind Cries Mary, Foxey Lady, Little Wing, All Along the Watchtower, Voodoo Child, and Star Spangled Banner/Machine Gun.

I give this pedal 10/10. That's just my opinion tho!

All of those sounds the pedal replicate doesn't ask for much. For instance, Wind Cries Mary and Little Wing is just a clean tone. Purple Haze Foxey Lady, Voodoo Child and possibly All Along The Watchtower just use a fuzz. Voodoo Child uses a wah with the fuzz and All Along the Watchtower occasionally a wah.

So basically, you're recommending a $200 piece of equipment, when you can get his tones with a standard Dallas Arbiter Fuzz ($65) and a vox wah pedal ($70)

As far as I know, Slash also used Vox. Correct me if I'm wrong. Though, I'm sure the Vox can handle Slash just as well as it can handle Hendrix.

Kinda silly when you think about it isn't? Part of the reason I've never been fond of signature pedals.
