Sound — 7
I'm running this through some pretty shoddy equipment, a Squier Strat, and a frontman, but it sounds alright. My complaint with it, is that it doesn't sound very good at all when distortion is applied. With a high gain setting, the wah effect is close to non existant. The sweep is pretty good compared to crybabies, which seem to be the minimum standard for wah pedals currently. This pedal sure shines on the cleans though. It can produce almost any sounds for funk that you could think of. The Q setting is pretty tweakable, but the Lo feature is almost useless. It has very minimal effect on the sound. The wah effect almost dissappears on the 5th and 6th string on the guitar setting however. If it wasn't for the distortion part holding it back, this is a very nice funk pedal.
Overall Impression — 8
I play classic, psychedelic, progressive, and southern rock for the most part. I have almost been playing for about 2 years now. If you can, see if you can compare it to different types of wahs. See if you can compare it to crybabies and voxs before you buy it to see what you like better. This is a hit or miss pedal. If it was lost or stolen, I would go buy a Vox wah instead, because a Vox would fit my style better than this, but overall it's not a bad pedal, especially if it's your first wah.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This pedal is made out of metal, it is pretty solid. I would definitely gig without a backup with this thing. It's durability could be compared with that of Boss stompboxes. The reliablility is there, and the durability even more. The only thing that could make this better, is to have bulletproof armor on it.
Ease of Use — 10
Pretty simple to use. It's got 3 tone type settings-fine tuning, Q, and Lo. It also has auto delay for when you use spring loaded, and a level control. It also has the most convinent battery chamber in a pedal that I've seen. It also has 2 different modes, 1 for bass and one for guitar. it's concept is simple, a wah you can tweak without modding circuits. If you read the manual, which is very brief, it should take you no more than 5 minutes to figure this thing out completely.
