Vox: Wah-Wah Pedal

Price paid: $ 99

Purchased from: Musicians Friend

Sound — 10
I use this pedal from a Peavey Raptor:( and then this:) then thru a MXR distortion, then a Peavey Rage 158. This may add a little noise but it also boosts treble beyond reason. Effects sound great unless you use the peaveys od setting because Peavey botched this one and puts the od before any thing no matter what. But through a distortion pedal it's so sweet, dude. Easy to get hendrixian tones. Anyone Who dreams of woodstock sounds, here it is. Effect is awesome. Nothin to worry about.

Overall Impression — 10
I play classic rock, and this pedal is the heart and soul of classic rock. Been playing 5 years never seen a single effect nicer. If it were stolen I would buy two more. Gotta love this perfect sound. Nothing to hate at all. Tried crybabies and cried. they were terrible. Tried Vox and was touched by an angel. This really is perfect.

I've had one battery in this more than 2 and half months and use it more than page (Who always had it on) and this battery still works perfect. Gig without backup? Yeah. done quite a few gigs for churches with it. Heck this thing says it can take 100 continuous hours on one battery. I think that's just a precaution, because it's worked longer than that on one battery already.

Perfect pedal really. You don't have to find the tone it comes to you. A little kick is all you need to get the sweetest classic rock tone you have ever heard. So easy to use the manual for this is a bookmark. no mods needed. Just click, rock back and forth, experiment with it in your rig and you'll find your tone.

    This wah has been through hell. As with all my effects, it's constantly being thrown, out windows, against walls etc. And has never ever broken or had an issue. I would definitely use this without a backup. Definitely.
    Why do you constantly throw your pedals against walls and out windows? O_o
