How do u use a wah pedal? i thought all u did was plug one cord from the amp to one side of the pedal and then another cord from the other side of the pedal to the guitar and then step on the pedal back and forth but when i do that absoloutely nothing happens? do i need a special cable instead of just a standard cable that hooks ur guitar up to the amp or what?

1) plug your guitar into the input of the wah (usually the right side) and plug the output of your wah (usually the left side) into the amp

2) turn amp on

3) push wah pedal forward until a click is heard, turning the pedal on

4) rock pedal back and forth, at desired speed

Well some of them also have an auto on. I have that on my Morley Bad Horsie 2.

EDIT: TS please say you have a battery in it or its connected to a power supply

the real problem is, the TS needs to come look at his thread. he thinks this forum is a regular snail-speed forum. its not. its lightning fast.
