  • Great tone but make sure your set up works with it

    As reviewed by Darwinist in Kansas on 10/5/2006

    The Vox V847 is a reissue of a classic from the infancy of Wahs. The most obvious aspect about this pedal is that it runs only off 9v, no AC adapter input. The thing to consider the most is how this will fit into you signal chain. I've found that with my small practice amp, Digitech RP80 processer and various distortion pedals it doesn't deliver a distorted wah tone I am really satisfied with...but it is absolutly awesome as a clean tone wah. I have yet to find a wah that sounds as good as this one for clean tone playing. I guess for distorted wah I may be picky, but this still has a unique sound that can be really interesting for cleaner stuff.

  • Sound of the 60's...

    As reviewed by AdamB on 10/3/2006

    So, you want to sound like the venerable Mr. Hendrix? Or nail that intro on Tales of Brave Ulysses? Then your probably gonna need a wah pedal. These V847's are re-issues of the 60's wah pedals, used by pub-gig fanatics the world over to get that voodoo child vibe going. The sound is a sort of EQ effect, where-by one moves the foot-pedal up/down to add more trebble/bass to the guitar signal, to create a vocal ohhh-ahhh-wahhh sort of sound. If you listen to any sort of rock music, you've undoubtedly heard this effect before. Compared to the original v847's that we all know and love, these are not quite the same circuts. For example, the halo inductors used in the originals are not present, probably because halo's are increasingly hard to come by. However, the pedal still contains that classic ohhh-wah-wah tone that instantly makes your guitar weep. The higher end is probably a little harsh (due to newer, silicon based transistors that are used these days), a bit too much trebble, especially on single coil strats. I found the sound is best if you back the trebble off post-wah with your amplifiers 'trebble' control, and use the neck position pickup on your guitar. The pedals are built to a high standard. The casing is thick die-cast metal, which leads me to believe it could probably withstand a short range missile attack (probably a useful feature, given the constant threat of terrorism). Also, the pedal looks very pretty, with it's original styled, shiny chrome "VOX" badge on the footpedal. Features wise, it' actually pretty lacking. There is no true-bypass, so the effect will "suck-tone" when it's not active. There is no LED indicator to tell you at a glance whether the effect is on or off and there is no 9V DC mains input. However, this is the same on the originals, so it really doesn't make too much difference. With that said, you can always ship it off to a modder, a person who will add the aforementioned features for a small fee. To be honest, the lack of features is easily made up for by the tone this thing creates. If you want to have the old-folks in the back of your local pub crying in the corner and telling tales of their days in the music biz back in the day, then you want this pedal.

  • Tone sucker but sounds amazing

    As reviewed by tietjen on 11/8/2006

    Vox V847 Wah-Wah Pedal. No DC Jack, not true bypass, no volume knob, no led, and no battery compartment. With that aside... sounds great, rugged, great quality, and vintage vibe. It does jump a little in volume when you click it on, which great for lead but annoying for rythum.
