Boss: PW-10 V-Wah

Purchased from: AZ music

Sound — 8
The pedal sounds pretty good straight out of the box, but it's extremely loud and will need the volume set by using the distortion type method. After that it has a great sound, although I don't know if it sounds like the pedals its supposed to. The distortion types are pretty good, theyre a little too much the same but are great if you are using a small amp.

Overall Impression — 8
I play just about any kind of music I feel like at the moment, except for country or rap, and this could be used for almost anything. The distortion is great for a vintage rock sound, but probably wouldnt be the best for metal. If it were lost, id probably get a different kind of pedal just to have something different, but afterwards if I got another wah pedal I would probably get this one again. I like how the pedal has a pretty nice sound, but I hate how complicated it is to set up. The pedal would be much better if it just had an easier to set up distortion. Overall its a great pedal.

Reliability & Durability — 10
It's sturdy, and I don't think you could break it if you tried. It's dependable, and if it was set up right it could definately be used at a gig without a backup.

Ease of Use — 8
It's pretty easy to get a good wah sound, just step on the pedal. The distortion is overly complicated to set up, to set it up you must turn off the pedal, switch to advanced, switch it back on while holding the memory button, set the distortion type by using the type switch (the manual has what each option is supposed to sound like), set some noise canceller, set the distortion knob, press memory again, then set the volume using the distortion knob. Athough it's complicated when you get it set up right it.
