Rolling your tone knobs can give a similar effect if your desperately stuck for something to add to the sound. Either that or borrow money and buy one...

Mines attached to my GT-8, and I'm in a different country, otherwise I'd loan it to ya. Like I said though, those tone knobs when rolled give the effect of a wah pedal, it was good enough for Clapton (or Jeff Beck or Santana, it was one of them I can't remember who did it). If your feeling adventurous though you could try to make a wah pedal, there are plenty of schematics out there. Or you could borrow money for a wah pedal, or do without. Thats all I can think of really, hope that helps

Yeah deffo, just be really careful with it, you don't want to smash the wah or anything and not be able to return it. Guitar shop guys are usually the most cool, patient people going, so they'll be ok about giving you a refund if you don't like the pedal.

If you can get an overdraft on your bank account or something, or get a loan from a buddy. Wah pedals aren't very expensive, do anything you can to get the money or do without. I don't have all the answers lol

If your REALLY stuck, if one of the guitarists in another band your going up against is nice, he MIGHT give you a loan of a wah if he has one, and thats going out on a limb, but it may be your only hope...

That song really doesn't NEED wah to sound good, I think you'll survive for one song.

No offense, but I'd be less worried about a lack of wah-pedal and more worried about that Behringer distortion pedal :P. Besides, that bit in the chorus is just octaves, nobodies going to miss a little bit of wah. Don't fret over it, its not as vital as you think. I once played a cover of Sweet Dreams by Marilyn Manson with no wah pedal, actually I had a wah pedal at the gig, just forgot to hook it up and only realized when we started the song lol. I substituted it with rolling the tone knobs for the post-chorus bit and just did without for the solo, and it went down very well. You'll be ok with out it. Good luck

Yeah, and the wah in the pre chorus isn't that important to the song, you'll do just fine without it. If you play the rest of the song well then it won't be a big deal.

Yeah, I've got a few lying around that just get used as door-stops these days.
Got an old 80's Ibanez JEM and MESA Triple Recti gathering dust in a closet too, if you fancy a full gear upgrade?

Sorry, but what the hell else do you want?? We're trying to help as much as possible, and short of ordering a wah-pedal for you and paying for it, theres not much else we can do. Just do without the wah-pedal, focus more on the delivery rather than the equipment, do the best you can and you'll be judged on your playing skill and performance abilities. Once again, best of luck with the competition
