Overview

There's nothing like the sound of a classic wah pedal to squeeze every ounce of expression out of a screaming solo or rhythm part. The Ibanez WH10V2 was a hit when it was first released in the '80s and now it's back as the WH10V2 Classic Reissue Wah, and it's even better.

The WH10V2 Classic Reissue Wah features the same multiple-feedback op-amp circuit as the original, a feature rarely found in today's wah pedals. Bass/Gtr switch optimizes for either instrument, while a depth knob controls the level of the wah effect and a dry out lets you mix your dry signal with the wah sound. The WH10V2 has a unique tonal character that sets it apart from traditional wah pedals, as well as some modern tweaks so your sound can keep with the times.

Among the WH10V2 Classic Reissue Wah's other upgrades is die-cast metal construction, replacing the original plastic case, ensuring longevity and a solid feel.

Features
  • Multiple feedback opamp circuit
  • Depth knob (+6 to +20dB)
  • Range switch: Guitar 350Hz - 2.2kHz, Bass 175Hz - 1.1kHz
  • Dry out
Specifications
  • Input Impedance: 500kOhms
  • Output Impedance: 1kOhm
  • Maximum output level: +4 dBv
  • Power Supply: 9V battery or AC power supply
  • Size - 3-1/2"W x 2" - 3-1/2"H x 8"D

The original Ibanez Wh-10, was by far the funkiest, thickest and tone-full wah of all! The true bypass, effect control and guitar/bass switch really set it apart. The problem was the plastic casing, I broke a few... But unlike most re-issues Ibanez took the step of actually correcting problem and keeping their hands off the rest. The WH-10V2 is basically a WH-10 as used by John Frusciante but with a hard metal casing that won't break on you. Thank you Ibanez, this is the perfect wah Pedal!

I used to own the vintage wh-10 as well as the WF-10 (fuzz) wahs, so I already knew what to expect in terms of sound. What I have to say about the reissue is that the good aspects are wonderful, but the bads can be a serious deal breaker which I'll get into. The good: The wah sounds great, especially if you are/were a John Frusciante or Omar fan. It's nice that the wah depth can be dialed in and Ibanez is wise for making it in the metal casing as you all know already. The sweep is good, the wah is synthy, and you can get a growl if you need to, and the footprint isn't as large as a standard wah. The Bad: As one of their "modern tweaks" Ibanez put in a soft engaging switch. If people return this wah I think this could be the biggest cause. The switch makes it hard to turn off/on on call. You can literally stomp this thing thanks to their metal design(which I did) and not get this thing to turn off. I tried to in socks then I tried shoes and still couldn't get it engage or disengage when I wanted...That's a big no no. At times you can't tell if you've even engaged it because there is no satisfying click when you try. They gotta fix the switch so that ends As for the sound it retains it's predecessors mojo and qualities, but isn't as bright (which could be good or bad) some may get a muddyness with their set-up (I don't). To wrap up The good outweighs the bad but the bad is really disappointing The best way to remedy the situation your self is to either replace the switch (which isn't easy as you got to strip the wah's components) or stick it into a TB loop and click it in when you need it. I've also asked around many people are talking about the switch being difficult so it's not a bad one I got.

Awesome but flaws

By Robert field

from Rockport TX

THe Wah pedal that will rule for a very long time. I have tryed them all. this pedal is what you want.with all the control. over all its a hit, the only thing i dis like is the switch. its to sensitive.when you come down on the wah pedal right in the middle of rockin,if you go to close to the switch it turns off the wah. im going to take the switch out and install a better switch that takes a little more pressure to turn off and on.it is the best Wah out there. just have to get use to the pedal control.how deep you push down.got mine on guitar center used gear

love it

By Nick

from miami, Florida

I had this pedal for a 9 months now, and i love it. You have to buy the right adapter for it or else you wont get the amazing wah it can give you. I have a Weeping demon also, but this wah blows it out of the water. I am a huge Frusciante fan, and i can nail all of his wah solos with this. The on and off switch isnt really that annoying if you know how to use it. I recommend it to Frusciante fans.

pretty good

By Erik

from Kansas City, Kansas

this wah is basically a great wah, it gives you everything you would expect from a wah and it sounds great.....but, the on/off switch is so annoying, when i first bought it i stomped and stomped on it, i was so frustrated, at one point i jumped on it with full force, i even took another trip to guitar center just to be told that it should work fine (they were friendly), after much frustration i took some thick paper and taped it together and then taped it to the pedal above the switch, it now works fine now, i recommend doing what i did if your having the same issue.

Excellent

By JohnRodriguez

from Queens, NY

This pedal has an incredible sound, raw and funky. Great for any kind of player, this pedal is one of the best pedals for such a low price. The only problem is the switch to turn the pedal on/off, BUT with two month of regular usage it will be fine. I recommend to any users of this pedal to buy a Boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion (one of the finest distortions in the market) and then use the WH with the DS-2, it sounds beautiful. 5/5 P.S: If you're nailing John Frusciante's sound this wah is the best one.

2 Bad Pots, No Fix

By Roberto

from Miami

I ordered this pedal last year for the first time. The pot was scratchy and was crackling all the time, so I decided to replace it. Next wah comes in and everything is fine, it works great. Two weeks later, the same problem with the pot, it was crackling all the time. So, I've pretty much given up with this lack of quality of Ibanez. It is a pedal that was designed over twenty years ago and the ones that are still here today worked just fine, why couldn't Ibanez just replicate that old one and put it in a metal casing? That is a great fail from the company, and surely a dealbreaker. As for the pedal when it was working, it had a great sweet sound, unlike any other wah pedal. It's great that you can make your adjustments on the fly to make your sweep subtle or almost distorted. The pedal really sucks your tone, so it would have been better that Ibanez had fitted the pedal with a True-bypass switch which could be turned on easier! The switch that this pedal has is extremely unreliable, as you may turn the pedal on easily, or it may take you like a minute to get the thing working. Overall, I was disappointed by the pedal, since Ibanez didn't put much effort into recreating the old pedal that made history among Frusciante fans. The quality of the pedal and its components are just plain awful, and until Ibanez doesn't fix the durability of this pedal, I don't recommend you to buy it even if you are a die-hard Frusciante fan that can't wait to get one. I think that in the long run, hunting down an original pedal in Ebay would prove to be cheaper that having to constantly fix and complain about this awful pedal that Ibanez is making.

Good Pedal...

By Vince D.

from Cold Brook, NY

The WH-10V2 is a great wah pedal. I get a great sound out of it...but the only problem is that I have a problem turning it on and off. It's annoying because I have to stomp the pedal to turn it on. I've tried removing that extra piece of rubber, but that doesn't help too much. It turns the pedal on very easily, but when I put my foot forward to use it, it turns off the wah. I don't know what to do to fix this.

THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE PEDAL

By Steve

from Westport, CT

This is a great pedal, it has maybe at most 2 problems. First problem, the switch to turn it on and off. Ive heard from many people having this problem and i myself had it, and it was quite frustrating to turn this wah on. I was able to fix it by removing a piece of rubber in front of the switch (there two pieces of rubber so its easy to take the top on off). This automatically fixed the problem, now i have no problem turning this thing on or off. Second issue, at high distortion levels and with the wah tone turned a good way up the wah can get a little sharp. Not neccesarily a big problem, and could also just be my setup. Now for the good things.. the wah tone out of this thing is great, great for Frusciante fans (including myself) and for any other people. The wah tone switch allows you to get a very large variety of tones and the metal case makes this thing as hard as a rock. Overall, i very highly recommend this pedal, you will not be dissapointed with your purchase.
